USB 3.0 Type-A to Type-C Version. We offer the Tether Tools Starter Tethering Kits in a variety of configurations, with this one being the USB 3.0 Type-A to Type-C version. We also carry Type-A to Micro-B, Type-C to Micro-B, and Type-C to Type-C versions of this kit.
Fifteen-Foot USB 3.0 Male Type-A to Type-C Cable. This kit includes a fully shielded fifteen-foot USB 3.0 Male Type-A to USB 3.0 Type-C cable, making it compatible with external hard drives, memory card readers, and other devices. It’s capable of transmitting data at up to 5 Gbps when used with compatible devices.
JerkStopper Camera and Computer Supports. The JerkStopper Camera Support provides slack to your camera cables to prevent them from coming unplugged or getting damaged. It supports cable diameters from 3.5mm to 8.5mm. Similarly, the JerkStopper Computer Support provides slack to your USB cable to reduce strain and minimize the chances of damage. It also goes the extra step of including its own USB plug that acts as an additional anchor point. If you don’t have a free USB Type-A input, we also add the JerkStopper Flat Mount Computer Support, which attaches to a flat surface using the included hook & loop fastener. Rounding out the included cable management accessories are (10) Small ProTab Cable Ties for taming wild cables.

If your model isn’t listed there, you can use Tether Tools’ Find Your Cable selector to find exactly which input you need.
That’s a loaded question. Assuming you already have or are renting a compatible camera, you will also need to have some sort of tethering software solution lined up as copyright laws prevent us from included in the rental.
There are far, far too many software options out there for us to go thru them all. Luckily, Tether Tools themselves have aggregated a fantastic sortable database based on your camera system / operating system that can be found here.
