Hacking Peak Design's Anchor as JerkStopper when Shooting Tethered

I really like shooting tethered directly to a computer whenever I have a chance because it's very easy to see on a big screen what needs to be corrected and which light needs to be moved. Unfortunately, tethering has its drawbacks and there are at least 3 nightmare scenarios that can happen when you pull the tethering cable by coincidence: (1) the camera will be pulled as well causing it to fall on the floor (the worst sound ever!); (2) the cable will get disconnected from the camera; (3) the tension caused by the cable and the connection will cause the socket/terminal in the camera to malfunction. There are 2 ways to fix the first problem: either get a really stable tripod or get a wifi connection for your camera. The other 2 problems can be easily fixed either with DIY twist ties as jerkstoppers (check out the video I posted long time ago here) or if you already use one of Peak Design products, their anchors.

I love Peak Design products and I have their anchors almost on every camera I own. I was recently shooting tethered and I was about to take the anchors off the camera when I realized that I can use the loop in the anchor for securely attaching my tethering cable, just like the jerkstopper products do. This will prevent the cable from being accidentally pulled out of the camera's terminal and it will reduce the tension put on the in-camera terminal. Here is a short video where I explain how you can make use of Peak Design's anchor for tethering.

[VIDEO] My Passion: Ride

Many people have passions for something, a hobby that s/he spends countless hours on learning, creating and perfecting. But a passion doesn’t have to be a hobby, it can be your work, an activity, a thing or a collection of things; as long as you put your heart and soul into it. I’ve been always fascinated with other people’s passion and I love to listen to their stories. Therefore, I have decided to start producing short videos - the series titled ‘My Passion’. 

This is the first video about Kevin, a guy living in the mid-south of the USA. Every weekend he wakes up before the sunrise to pursue his passion - to ride.
