CamFi has announced their new CamFi Pro Plus which offers wireless tethering for all Sony cameras that support USB tethering. But before you get too excited about the prospects of shooting RAW at 10 FPS RAW and transferring via WiFi consider that tests show the maximum Wi-Fi speed can achieve 10 MB/second.
Guangdong, CHINA—DECEMBER 18, 2018—CamFi, maker of wireless camera controllers, announced the release of CamFi Pro Plus today. This new product adds the wireless tethering feature for 500+ cameras, including Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji, Pentax and more. All DSLR cameras which support USB tethering can be supported by CamFi Pro Plus.
“This is a big step for tethering technology,” said Mark Ma, the CEO of CamFi Limited. “It will improve the productivity for the professional photographers greatly, without any study cost.” With wireless tethering, there is need for a USB cable to connect the camera and computer. CamFi Pro Plus also allows photographers to keep using familiar tools, such as Capture One, Lightroom, EOS utility, Sony Pixel and so forth, directly via WiFi.
CamFi Pro Plus adds the third party tethering service. It can send USB data to the client device directly through a WiFi connection. When a camera is connected with CamFi Pro Plus, the laptop which connects to it will act as if the USB device plugged into it directly. In tests, the maximum Wi-Fi speed can achieve 10M Bytes/second. For a 20M raw photo, for example, this translates into need only about three seconds to transfer with Capture One.
The third party tethering service of CamFi Pro Plus supports Windows and Mac. The price of CamFi Pro Plus is $339. It can be ordered via CamFi web site. All the existing customers of CamFi Pro can order the upgrade service for $40.

would use in strudio, so where i connect my wireless flash transmitter? Not going to use again like the old days flash cable
Connection is USB
But if one shoot with a transmitter attached on the hot shoe…where is it go? Thanks
Sony cameras tether via USB – note the cord in the photo.
I use a Small Rig L bracket, attached a cold shoe to the side or bottom and mount it there, They also sell a bracket, but I find the Small Rig Bracket to be better,
I need help with my MacBook Pro, sony a9/a7riii, and Lightroom with Camfi pro plus – EXTREMELY frustrated – over 100 times I have tried every known combination to get this to work and I am about at my wits end – have you tried this with that combination?
If you’re trying to tether to Lightroom that won’t work. Not with a tether cable and certainly not with Camfi.
You need to set Lightroom to ‘watch’ an import folder. Google how to do that if you’re not familiar with how to set it up.
