The wireless tethering options available on the market haven’t been many over the years; but the new Tether Tools Case Air dongle is looking to change that and do it at an affordable price. Where you’d pay an arm and a leg for a Nikon or Canon accessory (or in some cases use the company’s software with something like a Canon 6D), Tether Tools is looking to do it all at your computer, from your phone, or from a tablet while also saving the battery power in your camera.

If you’re a serious studio shooter, the new Tether Tools Case Air will most likely be one of the more important things to pay attention to.

Not because Canon flew me and a bunch of other journalists out to the Hot Air Balloon festival in New Mexico, but because when it was first announced I was honestly intrigued. The lens is billed as being completely and totally rectilinear–and when bringing the images into Adobe Lightroom, Adobe’s algorithms seemed to agree.
