I am trying to get a tethered setup going as long as possible.
The minimum is 25' for my setup. Anything longer would be nice.
Is there a maximum distance for the USB in which it can transmit? If I link multiple cables together, would it start getting a lack of signal? The longest cable I have found so far is 25' mini USB to USB .
Also, what about a netbook with battery life over 8-10 hours? Anyone have any recommendations for one which can also run Canon DPP for tethering? As I understand, DPP requires 768 resolution. Aren't there ways to fake the higher resolution?
I'm looking at the ASUS UL30Vt X1K - Core 2 Duo 1.3 GHz - 13.3″ notebook, as it has 768 and long 10+ hours battery. Is there anything smaller? Or is this as small as I can go with retaining resolution and batter life?
Thanks for any help you can provide!
