Objects - Aero Tether table

Tethering your camera to a laptop is a great way to review and store your images as you shoot but it does cause some logistical problems. For one, where do you put your laptop? On the floor? That's a bit dangerous. On a folding chair? Tacky. A company called Tether Tools has come up with a simple but useful solution to this dilemma: an adjustable, lightweight table to rest your computer on.

While the Tether Table Aero may not look like much more than a glorified music stand, the beauty is in the details. Constructed from tough T6 Aerospace Aluminum, the Aero easily attaches to any light stand or tripod via a patented bracket system. Just place your notebook computer on the table, tether it to your camera and you're good to go. Because the table is lightweight and durable, you can also use it outside of the studio. It breaks down into a compact size and is stored in its own custom case for travel.

Available in black or silver in several sizes, you can also customize your table with a range of accessories to expand usage. We liked the Manfrotto Accessory arm and camera tripod ($145) and the JerkStopper Tethering Kit and USB cable ($22) which are both shown in the photo here. Sure, those accessories add to the price a bit but they create a nice all-in-one solution for your next studio shoot.

Cost: $200
