The Canon EOS 5Ds R is a USB 3.0 DSLR camera and compatible with the TetherPro SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Male A to Micro B (IFC-150U II) which is available in high-visibility orange or black. SuperSpeed USB 3.0 is the latest technology available for the fastest and most reliable transfers. This protocol technology requires significantly more bandwidth than previous USB platforms and by manufacturing to the highest USB specifications TetherPro has insured the highest quality components and unsurpassed reliability in every cable.

TetherPro SuperSpeed USB 3.0 cables incorporate all of the latest technology ensuring consistent and reliable conductivity. The Canon 5Ds R connects using the Micro-B port located on the side of the DSLR body. All TetherPro cables are designed to the highest USB specifications to filter out signal noise and reduce transmission errors and all cables are fully shielded to protect against external signal interference.  Available in various lengths, including 15 foot(4.6m), which is the longest distance recommended under USB guidelines for a passive cable.

Many computers have trouble tethering with USB 3.0 connections. Tethering connections rely on power from the camera and/or computer to transfer images successfully. Under USB3 specifications you should be able to go 3’ without any issues. However many computer manufacturers are not building USB3 ports to USB.org specifications in order to conserve power. These manufacturers are not currently considering the unique needs of photographers and this is causing connectivity issues.

For tethering distances greater than 15 feet, per USB specifications, consider a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Active Extension to preserve signal integrity and minimize noise.

Also, available in a Right Angle Cable.

  1. can the Canon 5Ds /5Ds R be tethered to a macbook pro with USB2.0 port? Would that work? What cable/ cable booster would you recommend?

    Many thanks

  2. Angelo,
    It will work fine, it will just transfer at USB 2.0 speeds so you won’t get the full benefit of USB 3.0. However, you will get the full benefit of that amazing huge sensor.
