Air Direct In-Use: See How Other Photographers Are Tethering Wirelessly

In order to create images your clients won’t stop talking about, you’ve got to have the right tool for the job. The right camera. The right lens. The right light, or simply the right piece of grip gear that helps you hold your shot together.  

When you’re tethering, having the right tool for the job is exactly how you achieve the improved quality, collaboration and overall efficiency in your workflow. Just as you wouldn’t use the same camera and lens combination to shoot portraits or landscapes, the exact tethered set up you need varies greatly depending on the application and outcome you are looking to achieve. 

Since launching the Air Direct Wireless Tethering System, we’ve seen the most satisfaction coming from photographers who recognize the best applications for using it, and when they should instead connect their cable.  

Here are four online reviews on the product we thought would help you understand the product and how it might fit into your workflow.
