Canon 5D MKIII USB Tethering Cable & Wireless Options

Camera Make & Model:  Canon 5D MKIII

Recommended Compatible Tethering Cable:

TetherPro USB A to Mini B 5 pin cable (IFC-200U compatible)canon5dmkiii-usb-tethering-cable-wireless-transmitter

Description:  Available in high-visibility orange or black, the TetherPro cable features gold plated connectors for corrosion resistance ensuring consistent and reliable conductivity. A ferrite core is also included to filter out signal noise and reduce transmission errors. Additionally all TetherPro cables are fully shielded to protect against external signal interference.

The TetherPro USB A to Mini B, available in various lengths including 15 foot (4.6m), connects to the Canon 5D MKIII via the USB Mini-B port. This cable is designed and manufactured to highest USB specifications ensuring delivery of excellent performance.

Tethering options for distances longer than 15′(4.6m):  If distances longer than 15ft. (4.6m) are needed USB specifications recommend limiting the length of a passive USB cable to 15 feet (4.6.m). A USB Active Extension, available in 16, 32, 49 or 65 foot (5, 9.7,15 or 20m) lengths, used in conjunction with your passive USB cable, will boost the signal, reduce transmission errors and lower noise enabling the longer tethering distances when needed.
