Tether Tools introduced a new wireless tethering system for DSLR and mirrorless cameras late October in 2019. This new system supports all major camera models and tethering software, and it is finally available to ship worldwide.
Tether Tools is a company known by its durable tethering cables and accessories used by many photographers. Reliable tethered shooting is the vital part of a photo shoot and a good cable is the key for starters. However, shooting tethered wirelessly is even better, but it costs more compared to using cables.
The new Air Direct Wireless Tethering System is similar to the CamRanger system; it transfers the raw and JPEG images directly to your software (Capture One, Lightroom, etc) like a tethering cable does. In addition to just transferring the images, the device allows two-way connection between the camera and the software, allowing to use live view, bracketing, focus-stacking, and many other features that can be done natively via software.
Unlike the Tether Tools’ previous Case Air Wireless Tethering System, the new Air Direct Wireless Tethering System is more advanced and can be used with tether-supporting Nikon, Canon, Sony, Panasonic, Fujifilm, Olympus, Leica, and medium format cameras like Hasselblad and Phase One. It can also be used to transfer the images to mobile phones and tablets via the Air Remote App which is both available for iOS and Android devices. However, the Air Remote Mobile App is currently compatible with only Nikon and Canon cameras.
The price is $329.99 and it is now available for shipping directly via company’s website and soon it will be available in local stores.
