Note: Our previous incompatibility issue regarding our high-visibility orange TetherPro 8-Pin Cable and Nikon D750 and Panasonic GH-4 has been resolved. If you already own this cable and are having issues with your camera, please email our customer service at customerservice@tethertools.com to address your concern. 


 

The Nikon D750 is a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 DSLR camera and compatible with the TetherPro USB A to Mini B 8 pin cable . 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 8 Pin, available in various lengths including 15 feet (4.6m), connects to the Nikon D750 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.

Tether Tools TetherPro USB Cable 8-PinUSB 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.

Be sure to check out our complete line of JerkStopper cable retention devices. The JerkStopper removes stress and strain from the camera and computer plugs. This ensures the plugs stay in, and also prevents cable and/or equipment damage.

  1. Hey guys, i just got the Nikon D750 and i’m having trouble finding out which software can help me while i shoot tethered to the Mac.
    i have a photoshoot coming up soon and i always shoot tethered and in RAW. Now i realise that the raw files don’t have a codec for them yet, which i will have to use VIEW NX and convert them to TIFF … however I tried to use capture pro and view nx and didn’t seem to do anything while i had the cam tethered. appreciate the help

  2. We have recently been made aware of this issue regarding the Orange TetherPro 8 Pin Cable and Nikon D750. We are happy to return your cable if it is not compatible with your camera model. We apologize for this inconvenience.

    We have been testing the D750 and are not able to determine the connection issue with the cable and D750. The cable does work with many other Nikon cameras with the same port connection, however this QA issue appears to be unique to the cable when used with the D750. We are working with our engineers and Nikon to determine the cause of the incompatibility. We hope to have the issue resolved as quickly as possible.

    In the meantime our TetherPro Active Extension Cable works well with the camera but you would need to plug the cable that came with the camera into the camera and then into our extension (CU1917). This setup will give you a total length of about 19 feet. Please let us know if you would like to arrange to exchange your 8-Pin cable for the extension or coordinate a return.

    I have added your email address to our D750 correspondence list, so as soon as we determine a resolution we will contact you immediately.

    Thanks again and please let me know if I can be of any additional assistance.

  3. Hi, would the tetherpro usb 2.0 active extension cable 16 in ORANGE would work with the D750 and his short black cable?

    Thanks

  4. Hi!

    I just purchased the TetherPro USB 2.0 A Male to Mini-B 8 Pin, 15 feet (4.6m), Orange to connect with my Nikon D750… using Helicon Remote on my tablet (which worked fine with my D610), the application initially “saw” the camera, then didn’t. The camera’s live view appeared to be disabled (I assumed because the application had control of it), but the application wouldn’t work otherwise. I connected the camera to my desktop to see if Lightroom would function as it had with the D610, but it didn’t see the camera either (although Windows detected it)… appears that my version of Lightroom 5.7.1 is not compatible with the D750 either.

    Based on the early recognition of the camera using the Helicon Android application, as well as Windows recognition of it, I assume that it’s not the cable at this point, so, I guess I’m looking for suggestions. Use with the Android is my most likely need at the moment. Thanks.

  5. Patrick,

    You’re right that your version of Lightroom doesn’t support the D750. If you can upgrade to 6.0, it should work fine.

    My best guess for the android device is power. Since the cable length is 15′, the tablet may not be supplying it enough juice to maintain the connection. You can test this by trying to go through a powered hub and see if that makes a difference.
