Tether Tools Released its Case Relay Camera Power System



Tether Tools is committed to supplying professional and enthusiast photographers with the finest tethering photography equipment. They have released their Case Relay Camera Power System. It is a first of its kind, and provides uninterruptible power for a DSLR or mirrorless camera using any standard 5V USB external battery pack.

The Case Relay Camera Power system works in sync with the Relay Camera Coupler, designed specifically for your camera. A Relay Camera coupler is inserted directly into the camera battery port, then connected to the Case Relay CPS. The Case Relay connects directly to any standard 5V external battery, commonly known as a portable USB charger, widely available at most stores or via TetherTools.com.

With Case Relay’s own secondary, internal 1200 mAh battery, if the photographer’s external battery pack runs low it’s easy to swap the external battery and not lose power to the camera. With the Rock Solid External Battery Pack (10,000 mAh) from Tether Tools, photographers will be able to shoot considerably longer than with a standard camera battery. A 10,000 mAh external battery will provide 3-10 times the power of most camera batteries, depending on the camera.

Advantages:

  • Continually power your camera with USB battery packs
  • Hot-swap batteries mid-shooting with no downtime
  • No need to purchase multiple camera batteries
  • More cost effective than purchasing multiple proprietary camera batteries
  • Power sources are non-proprietary, so you can power your camera with the same 5V battery you use to charge phones or tablets.
  • Never need to charge camera batteries again

Tether Tools Helps Keep Your Studio Organized

Their tools are used by creatives across the globe as an essential piece of their workflow and safety on set. Tether Tools can help keep your studio organized with their newly introduced products.

TetherBlock prevents accidental remover of a cable from your camera’s data ports by snaking a USB, FireWire, or HDMI cable through the TetherBlock’s channel. Once secured to the camera, you can either shoot handheld or attach the TetherBlock to a camera’s tripod mount. For those using an Arca-compatible tripod, TetherBlock Arca has the plate built-in.

Tether Tools is in the final stages of the manufacturing process on USB-C cables. They will produce USB-C to USB-C, USB-C to USB-A, and USB-C to each individual camera port. Their goal is to provide you with a single cable to meet your needs, whether you have USB-C on your camera, computer, or both.

Tether Tools Has New Mounts and Stands for Monitors and iMacs



Tether Tools logoModern computer displays are amazing things. In most cases, they’re thin, light, and relatively portable right out of the box. That makes it easy to install them in all kinds of different locations. But most monitors only come with simple desk-based stands in the box. Thanks to the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) standards for monitors and TVs, it’s easier than ever to use most digital displays (and even Apple iMac computers) with all kinds of mounts and stands that make it possible to use those displays almost anywhere.

Tether Tools, a leading manufacturer of many popular adaptive stands for tablets, phones, and displays, recently announced a collection of new products to help creators use their monitors in new ways. Here’s a rundown of these new items from Tether Tools:

  • Rock Solid VESA Monitor Mounts: From Tether Tools: “These three VESA Monitor Mounts are an integral part of mounting a monitor to a stand or tripod. All three require a monitor that is VESA compliant with a 75×75 or 100x100mm configuration or a monitor that is outfitted with a VESA adapter.”
  • Rock Solid iMac Adapters: From Tether Tools: “The VESA iMac Stand Adapter employs a unique adapter ring system, and a heavy-duty steel construction will keep your iMac safe and secure. The brushed aluminum finish matches the look of an iMac, giving you a setup that is both attractive and functional. Pair a Rock Solid VESA Monitor Mount (sold separately) with a Rock Solid VESA iMac/Cinema Display Direct Adapter to mount your iMac to a stand or tripod.”
  • Rock Solid iMac Direct Adapter: For use with iMacs that have a VESA adapter already connected.
  • Rock Solid VESA Adapter Plates and Extensions: From Tether Tools: “Certain monitors have a VESA configuration larger than 100x100mm, that’s where our three adapter plates come in. These plates convert 200×200, 400x200mm, and larger VESA configurations to the standard VESA pattern of 100x100mm to make your monitor compatible with mounts such as the Rock Solid VESA Monitor Mounts (mentioned earlier).”
  • Rock Solid VESA Monitor Quick Release System: This system makes it easy to install or remove a display onto a stand or mount. Ideal for situations where you need to move a display between locations.
  • Rock Solid Non-VESA Monitor Mount Adapter Arms: From Tether Tools: “The Rock Solid Non-VESA Monitor Mount Adapter Arms will fit most LCD or LED monitors with a bezel height from 10.5″ to 16.25″ and overall thickness from 1″ to 2.75″, or generally, most widescreen monitors from 17″ to 27″ (fits square 13″ screens). The adapter is designed to fit any VESA monitor mount with 75x75mm or 100x100mm mounting holes, and includes all required screws and other hardware for assembly.”

All products above range in price and can be purchased thru the Tether Tools store.
