Tethering Canon 5D mark III to Capture One Pro
« on: December 15, 2014, 05:55:03 pm »

Clients repeatedly expressed the wish to see images real time on a computer monitor, so I'm looking into getting a tethering solution to go with Capture One Pro.

I'm still on 7, but am upgrading as soon as I have two projects I'm working on completed.

What sending unit will I need for my 5DIII?

Do I have options, or is there just one unit I have to buy.

How reliable is it? I heard of tethering problems in the past, and don't want problems during a shoot eating up valuable time.

Thanks!

Can you not tether to 5D with 7?

Have you tried the EOS Utility that you received with the camera?

You could tether with V7, (although V8 is faster) simply with a USB cable.

It is not possible to wirelessly tether.

Make sure you have the latest release of Capture One and IMPORTANT that the firmware is up to date on the Canon.

Thanks, David, for the tip with keeping my camera firmware up to date!

I'll upgrade to 8 before I'll do the first tethered shoot.

The reason for this thread is that I heard so much negative things about wireless tethering - so I won't mind it's not possible with c1p.


About the cable - are there any requirements like maximal length? Or do you just buy a 20 foot usb cable and be careful not to rip it out of the socket when shooting... or falling over it... into the arms of the model...

Hi,

USB cable length for a reliable connection is more or less limited to 3-5 metres, before additional filtering and amplification/power is required (e.g. an active hub, or an active cable with built-in filtering and amplification, e.g. these). Several active cables can be linked together for a longer reach, but wireless solutions also exist.

To prevent pulling out the cable, Tethertools offers good preventative solutions.

Cheers,
Bart

Thank you, Bart (sorry for the late reply on my part)
