Broken Camera Port: Don’t Let It Happen to You

Fast forward to your next big photo shoot. You’re shooting tethered without a cable management system to keep your camera port safe. You step on your cable, the port breaks, and now your client has no other way of previewing the images. They’re hovering over your shoulder for the rest of the shoot.

Will this experience be something you look at as preventable or something that just happens?

Truth be told, it is preventable with just one piece of gear – the JerkStopper Camera Support.

Tether Tools JerkStopper Camera Support Cable Management

The JerkStopper Camera Support is a patented cable retention device that provides an anchor point for USB, FireWire, HDMI or sync cables to hang without tension or stress on a camera port.

So, don’t wait for that photo shoot where a broken port is even an option. Prevent it with the JerkStopper Camera Support.

Other JerkStopper Options

Not a fan of how this JerkStopper Camera Support holds your cable out to the side? Tether Tools offers some other great options depending on your  cable and workflow.

If you are a ‘tripod-free’ shooter, look into the JerkStopper Thread Mount. It holds your tether cable tight to the camera and brings the cable directly to the bottom of your camera.
