Your Camera. Your Software. Wireless.

The Air Direct wirelessly transfers RAW and JPG images to your software as if you were shooting with a cable. Connect supported Fujifilm, Sony, Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, and other DSLR, Mirrorless and Medium Format cameras direct to a computer running compatible tethering software. Air Direct’s USB-C protocol and 802.11AC dual band Wi-Fi delivers fast, reliable image transfer and enables all camera control features native to the tethering software – such as live view, loupe, barcoding, bracketing, focus-stacking and countless other features native to tethering software.


Your Camera. Your Workflow. Wireless with Air Direct.

Air Direct brings you a tethered workflow shooting experience that frees you to be mobile as you shoot. Air Direct’s utility software makes a virtual PTP connection so you can wirelessly control your camera and transfer files to your software. Compatible with Capture One, Smart Shooter, Lightroom, DarkRoom & many other tethering software programs.

Air Direct utilizes its own power source and will not drain the camera’s battery. For longer shoots, use large external USB batteries or AC wall power via the supplied DC cable. Air Direct offers the flexibility to swap power sources without ever shutting down, so you can power and shoot simultaneously.


Mac and PC Compatibility:

- The Air Direct Utility (ADU) creates a wireless PTP communication between camera and tethering software on MacOS or Windows.

- Compatible with Canon, Fuji, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Panasonic LUMIX, Phase One, Hasselblad, Leica models with USB tether. Not designed for non-supported camera models.

- For cameras with extremely large files, shooting tethered with a cable may be a better option.

- Tethering software of your choice such as Capture One, Smart Shooter, Lightroom, DarkRoom, & many other tethering software programs. (Required for Mac and PC)
