Mounting the Air Direct Wireless Tethering System

The Air Direct Wireless Tethering system is our latest in wireless tethering workflow solutions. A question we’ve been getting is: What is the best way to mount the Air Direct to my camera?

The Air Direct includes an integrated camera shoe mount allowing you to safely and securely connect it to your camera body. We recommend mounting the Air Direct in one of two ways. The camera hot shoe or via an L-Bracket.

Primarily, if the camera’s hot shoe is available, we recommend connecting it there. Note: the Air Direct does not need to connect to the camera’s hot shoe to function.

Perhaps you are a photographer who needs your camera’s hot shoe for a trigger. Then our second option is best for your set up. We recommend the Tether Tools Arca Clamp for L-Bracket to seamlessly secure the Air Direct to an L-Bracket.

The Arca Clamp features an integrated cold shoe to secure the Air Direct. The clamp features an easy to mount quick release that secures directly to Arca-style L-brackets.
