Default Tethered Shooting 40D in the studio

I want to have a go at tethered shooting in the studio. I tried at home and it's working fine in EOS Utility. Problem is, the USB cable is quite short...

Any problems with using extensions, or are there proper alternatives out there...longer, curly, or whatever? What do you use?

Cheers

I've used a 10m USB extension cable with no problems at all when shooting tethered. Mine is a straight cable, not sure I'd want a curly one as it might pull back a bit.

Thanks. I have a 5m one on order, very cheap, just to try it.

Cheers
