The Nikon D3300 is a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 DSLR camera and compatible with the TetherPro USB A to Mini-B 8 Pin cable as (Nikon UC-E6 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 8 Pin, available in 15 feet (4.6m), connects to the Nikon D3300 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.

  1. Hi.

    I was under the impression that there was no software that supports Nikon D3300 tethering, so the only use I can see for the cable above is just as a standard transfer cable.

    Do you know of any software that supports tethering on the D3300? I would be very interested in purchasing this cable if such software exists.


  2. Hi Mike
    I recently bought a Nikon D3300, and I found a program online, which can be used for tethering of D3300. The program is called digiCamControl. It’s open source, so it’s free.
    I haven’t used it much, so I don’t know, if it is any good. Sorry for any improper grammar; English isn’t my first language.

  3. I’m completely frustrated with my d3300…. I can’t figure out digicamcontrol. It doesn’t seem to see the camera. Everything is updated. Even my d60 tethers. Updated the firmware for the camera, and now my sigma lens won’t autofocus. d3300 is a waste, get something better, or lesser, you’ll have less trouble.

  4. digiCamControl crashes my laptop. Still looking for a tethering programme. I’m hoping an Eye-Fi card will do the job rather than a cable.
