The kit includes the cable, cable management and visibility gear needed to connect camera to computer. Add software to this kit and you’re ready to get started. This combination of product provides the best equipment in one convenient package.


What’s Included?

Tethering Cable

In order to start shooting tethered, you need some way to get the information from your camera to your computer at the time of capture. This is where a tethering cable comes in handy.

Depending on your camera model, you will require a certain cable. Our Camera Compatibility Guide will help you find the right one.

Cable Management & Organization

Keeping gear connected and secure both during shoots and in between is key. The kit includes tools you need to stay organized, prevent damage, and store and transport the gear without risk of damage.

The JerkStopper Camera Support will keep the tethering cable attached to your camera, and prevent dislodging and port damage. A JerkStopper USB Computer Support is also essential for keeping the cable secure in the computer port. The JerkStopper will keep your tethering cable in the computer port. And the organization case will keep all your gear together in one place. You’ll be ready to set up a professional tethering session on every shoot. 

LED ProLight

You may be asking, “why do I need this?”  When shooting in varying light conditions, seeing the keyboard and images on screen is key. Whether in a hood in broad daylight or in dark shooting conditions, this little handy device will provide a narrow beam of light where you need it most.

So what are you waiting for?

The Starter Tethering Kits can be purchased from many select dealers across the USA and International Tether Tools Retail locations. Once you have this Starter Kit, tethered photography has never been easier!
