How do I Mount Case Air for Wireless Tethering?

Posted by: on Nov 3, 2016 | 8 Comments

A common question for the Case Air Wireless Tethering System: How can I mount my Case Air? There are quite a few options for securing your Case Air to either the camera or yourself during a photo shoot. The device is small and lightweight, but it does need to be kept secure and out of the way.  

Mount to Your Camera

If you are looking to keep your Case Air close to your camera and out of the way, then we recommend using the integrated hot shoe mount. The bottom of the Case Air has a built in cold shoe – meaning it doesn’t use power from the hot shoe, just sits on top. With the retainer screw, you can tighten it down and it will stay securely in place.

Clip to Your Camera Using the Provided Lanyard

The Case Air comes with a quick release lanyard in the box. This lanyard is a great option if you need to use the hot shoe mount for a strobe trigger or on camera flash. Since the Case Air is so light, it will comfortably hang without affecting the balance or positioning of the camera.

Multiple Mounting Bar Option

If you have a situation where you also require your wireless radio trigger to be near your camera, look into the option of the Accessory Extension Bar. This bar can mount multiple pieces to the top of the camera while still having a secure placement of the Case Air near your camera.

For any of the solutions above, we recommend using a JerkStopper Camera Support to keep the Case Air’s cable from detaching from the camera port during the photoshoot.

  1. Hi Alexey, thank you for your interest. Currently on backorder, will begin shipping by November 18. We launched the product on October 28th but we sold out quickly due to high demand.

  2. @Sterling,

    The biggest difference is the Case Air is a wireless tethering system and the Manfrotto Digital Director requires a USB Cable. The price is another large factor.

    The Case Air is much smaller, packs up quickly and easily and allows you to use your existing iPad case.

    Because the Manfrotto uses a USB Cable, it doesn’t have the live view lag caused by the speeds of WiFi.

  3. i have the older version of pocket wizards. I shoot with canon 5d mark iii what cord do i need to hook my pocket wizard to my camera. I am using strobes. so i use the extension bar with the case air on it and also my pocket wizard. Thank you.
