Re: Advice on tethering cables for A7RIII

Not really usb, bust just in case someone lands on this thread,

HDMI cables are not created equal for 4K use in external video feed (as I tether both camera control and 4K video feed).

And even 4K cables, after minor use, can out-of-the-blue stop performing at 4K resolution but will function normal at 1080.

So any 4K problems suspect the cable, and don't think just because a cable works in 1080 and even if it once did work in 4K, that it is still good if all the sudden you lose picture.

IMO HDMI cables have too many tiny wires where things can go wrong.
