Tether Tools Air Direct Wireless Tethering System
Air Direct brings you a tethered workflow shooting experience that frees you to be mobile as you shoot. Air Direct's utility software makes a virtual PTP connection so you can wirelessly control your camera and transfer files to your software. Compatible with Capture One, Smart Shooter, Lightroom, DarkRoom & many other tethering software programs.
Air Direct utilizes its own power source and will not drain the camera’s battery. For longer shoots, use large external USB batteries or AC wall power via the supplied DC cable. Air Direct offers the flexibility to swap power sources without ever shutting down, so you can power and shoot simultaneously. The Air Direct’s Bridge Mode feature expands a photographers wireless tethering workflow by allowing users to not only bring images directly into their tethering software, but also immediately send images via a FTP site, share them with clients, post to social media, stream music and more.
Using Catalina 10.15.2 or newer? Compatibility issues between macOS Catalina 10.15.2 and newer, Capture One 20 and Adobe Lightroom have prevented those users from being able to connect and use Air Direct. Get more details, along with alternative workflow considerations for those scenarios.
