The Tether Tools TetherPro 12" Mini-B USB 2.0 Left Angle Cable Adapter connects directly to the camera port and to the TetherPro Mini-B USB Cable. It connects to the camera using a 5-pin mini-B connector. Depending on one's shooting style, having a cable coming straight out of the camera may cause interference. Additionally, using an "L" bracket on the camera often interferes with the cable coming out of the port.
This premium TetherPro Cable is designed to extend down the side of the camera allowing cables to be used during shoots and adapt to one's shooting style. While using this cable, inspect your camera port to ensure the cables' plug is going in the correct direction as per your needs, as it is also available as a Right Angle Cable.
