I know it's not the newest thread here but... "USB Hubs are not advised". Uhm... so it is not advised to use a Mac Notebook either then - there are no old usb ports anymore, just usb-c. Does anyone found a solution for Mac users to shoot tethered? Does anyone know if there's an adapter that works to connect the old cable with usb-c-ports? Appreciate any tipp :-)


Welcome to the forum. 

Need to read the whole paragraph above. 

Yes, you can get a USB-C to USB-A adapter from Amazon. 


John & swisselle, my Dell XPS 17 only has USB C Thunderbolt ports (4), so I bought the Belkin brand USB type C to type A adapters from Amazon. They work well for all of my cameras and other USB type A (2 & 3) devices that I have, like external drives.

Re: EOS 5D MarkIV won't connect to laptop via USB port

I was an early adopter and have the Nonda varient. They are most likely all made in the same plant. Work great. I leave them in my cables and remove if I am plugging into a USB-A device.

I also use a female USB-C to make USB- adapter to connect my 1DX III to my older PC since the 1D cable is USB-C on both ends.

Unlike USB-A hubs, many USB-C hubs are powered because the USB-C ports are power delivery ports.

Thank you @FloridaDrafter  and @jrhoffman75. I tried it with an adapter and it worked like a charm. My notebook bag is full of these little adapters and I somehow forgot about them, because all I need to work at home since 18 month (...) is the usb-hub.
