Question How Tether to Linux or Windows Laptop?

How can a camera be tethered to a Windows or Linux operating system laptop?


What kind of camera connection is needed? What software? What cable? etc. How is the hook up made?

You tether with a USB cable connection. Use the short USB cable that came with your camera to allow you to connect it to a computer for image transfer. Extend this cable with a long active USB cable like this one. Non-active USB cords will not work if longer than about 8' to 10'.


Use Jerk Stoppers at the camera and computer but do NOT add any disconnection protection between the two cables. If you trip over the cord you want it to separate, not jerk your camera out of your hand.


With Canon cameras free tethering software comes on the DVD that came with the camera. It is called EOS Utility.

With Nikon cameras you have to buy the tethering software, Nikon Camera Control Pro 2.

There are other tether software programs including Lightroom 4.
