How to tether from Canon 750D to MacBook

Recommended Posts

Hi guys


First photo shoot in a few days for my new company. Id like to tether my 750D to my MacBook pro. In short, what will i need to do this? Ive read a long USB cable? Will it be a USB to USB or another type of cable?

Also how do i tether in affinity? Is it possible. 


Keep it simple, thanks guys

Hi Steve


You can use the USB cable you had with your camera but if you want to be more comfortable, you'll need a longer one, 5m max.

The official one from Canon is the USB IFC-500U. It's USB to mini-USB type B.


On the computer you'll need an application which is able to manage the tethering. AP cannot. Capture One can and I think Lightroom too.

OS X 10.12 - AP 1.6.6 - AD 1.6
