The Canon EOS 6D is a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 DSLR camera and compatible with the TetherPro USB A to Mini B 5 pin cable (Canon IFC-200U compatible). Available in high-visibility orange or black, the TetherPro cable features gold-plated connectors for corrosion resistance, ensuring consistent and reliable conductivity. A ferrite core is also included to filter out signal noise and reduce transmission errors. Additionally, all TetherPro cables are fully shielded to protect against external signal interference.

The TetherPro USB A to Mini B, available in various lengths including 15 feet (4.6m), connects to the Canon EOS 6D via the USB Mini-B port located on the side of the DSLR body. This cable is designed and manufactured to highest USB specifications, ensuring delivery of excellent performance.

USB specifications recommend limiting the length of a passive USB cable to 15 feet. If you plan to tether your camera longer than 15 feet, you will need an active extension. USB Active Extension, available in 16, 32, 49 or 65 feet (5, 9.7,15 or 20m), used in conjunction with your passive USB cable, will boost the signal, reduce transmission errors and lower noise, enabling the longer tethering distances when needed.

  1. Hi there,

    I’m a bit confused… you also sell a USB 3 cable that looks itentical to the one shown in this review.

    I have the 60D, if I purchase the USB 3 cable, will it work ?, it’s confusing because you are showing such a new camera, with a USB 2 cable instead of the USB 3 cable you also sell….

    any help appreciated !

  2. Hi Frosty – Yes it can be quite confusing with all the different protocols. Both the 6D & 60D are USB 2.0. The TetherPro USB 2.0 Mini-B is the correct cable. Even though the 2.0 cables look similar to 3.0, the camera connection is different and not compatible. Canon has not yet introduced a USB 3.0 connection and Nikon only has 1 model at this time. Also please check out our Cable Compatibility Guide for any other camera connections needed. If you have any additional questions please let me know.
