    Hi guys,
    Just wondering if any of the sports togs on here tether their cameras to their laptops? Why or why not?
    Thanks guys.

    I believe some do this but I've never seen it at any games I've attended. Sometimes you need to jump up and move fairly quickly so tethered would just hinder you.

    I have done and it can be extremely effective. However, if your camera goes to sleep it can take a few moments to re-establish the connection to the computer when you wake it up by pressing the shutter, meaning you cant take the shot you want (talking Canon 1D4). So you risk losing an important shot, but gain the faster workflow. It also takes up a USB port which you might need, and uses quite a lot of battery on the laptop which might otherwise be in standby.
