Tether Tools has built up a great reputation amongst pro photographers offering a range of cables and contraptions that take out all the stress of tethering your camera to a laptop. You can barely go into a professional studio without seeing the bright orange wires that are the Tether Tools trademark.

But now Tether Tools are offering to cut the wires, and let you shoot cable free with the launch of the Air Direct. Originally shown last year, the Tether Tools Air Direct accessory connects your camera to your laptop over its own wifi network  - allowing you to upload your RAW and JPEG files direct to your computer as you shoot them.
