Very much depends on the camera you have and the
connection within!

Found all I needs for on location work at TetheredTools.

What camera?

Why do you need the cable? For tethered shooting, get a longer one than the Nikon standard cables. If you want to transfer files, a card reader is a better solution.

My coffee may not have been a Russian Strogonov 
for "strong enough" … I did not think of file transfer.

Of course, for that, a reader is the way to go!

Free for 30 trial days.

Sure, not only can you use the camera but control it 
— perfect in studio work. What does not work is to
record to the card… instead, the shot is imported di-
rectly in CO's capture ƒ instantly and automatically.

If you have Skype, I could demonstrate.
