What's in the box:

  • (1) TetherBoost Core Control
  • (1) USB 3.0 Cable (1m)

TetherBoost™ USB 3.0 Core Controller is designed to boost and regulate power from a DSLR camera and/or Digital Back. TetherBoost™ provides enough consistent power to maintain a stable, reliable connection when a camera is connected to a computer via USB cables.

This is the perfect companion for all new USB 3.0 cameras including: Nikon D800, Nikon D800E, Nikon D810, Canon 7D Mark II as well as the following digital backs: Phase One IQ140, Phase One IQ160, Phase One IQ180, Phase One IQ250, Phase One IQ260, Phase One IQ280 and Leaf Creado Series.

TetherBoost is self-powered and can be used on its own. However using external power is optimal to reduce the drain on camera and computer batteries when shooting tethered. For external power, the optional  TetherBoost™ A/C Power Adapter (30.TBPA5AU) can be plugged into a wall A/C outlet. Alternatively, connecting  TetherBoost™ USB to D/C Power Cable (30.TBPAUSB) can be

used with the portable Rock Solid External Power Bank (30.RS7889) for location shooting or when wall A/C power is not convenient.

External power is also recommended for any distances longer than 4.6m. To achieve longer than 4.6m, the included 1m cable can be connected to a TetherPro Active Extension cable - 5m on the computer side of TetherBoost™ or a USB 3.0 Micro-B 4.6m base cable can be connected directly from TetherBoost™ to computer. TetherBoost™ also features  TrueConnect™ LED panel indicators to confirm each port’s stable and constant connection.
