When shooting tethered a trip or tug can cause your tether cable to become disconnected from the camera leaving you to reconnect your cable, restart your program, and face the possibility of a damaged camera data port.
Tether Tools Pro and fashion photographer Lindsay Adler says this holiday season, she’s getting fellow photographers and her assistants the TetherBlock.“It’s a life-saver,” says Lindsay. “My assistants will love it for their own shoots or on set with other photogs.”
Here’s How It Works:
The TetherBlock is designed to prevent accidental removal of a cable from your camera’s data ports by snaking a USB, FireWire, or HDMI cable through one of TetherBlock’s three channels. A 1/4″-20 slotted screw attaches the plate to the camera and can be tightened with a screwdriver or coin. From there, either shoot handheld or attach the TetherBlock to your camera’s tripod mount and you’ll be able to shoot tethered to a computer without fear of your tethered cable becoming unplugged.
Designed and manufactured in the USA
Constructed from a single piece of precision milled T5 aerospace aluminum alloy
Fits tripod mount via either a 1/4″-20 (for the tripod plate) or 3/8″ thread mount directly on tripod
Multiple channels accept thick, medium or thin cables
Non-slip friction pads prevent camera twist
Tether Tools Lifetime Warranty
TetherBlock comes in two versions, the TetherBlock ($89) and TetherBlock Arca ($99) which connects to an Arca-Swiss compatible tripod. While the price may seem steep to some, it’s a fraction of the cost in comparison to the replacing a broken USB port on your camera. Plus, with premium construction and materials the TetherBlock will last for years.
USB-C Cameras and the TetherBlock
For photographers shooting tethered using a USB-C camera data port connection, we recommend the TetherPro USB-C and TetherBlock Bundle which combines your compatible USB-C cable for your camera and computer, and a TetherBlock of your choosing.
