The Sony a77 is a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 DSLR camera and compatible with the TetherPro USB A to Mini B 5 pin cable (Sony SLT-A77V 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 Sony a77 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 connect 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 distances when needed.

  1. I have a Sony A77. Can I use this cable to copy images to a computer without having to turn off the camera, insert the cable, etc?

  2. This cable does not enable the tethering feature but is the compatible cable to transfer images from camera to computer. Currently the a77 can not tether but if Sony releases a firmware upgrade that feature may be added.

  3. I purchased this cable. It specifically says “tethering cable.” Why is it advertised as a “tethering cable” if it doesn’t tether?!?!?!
