Shooting hockey tethered?

Has anyone tried this with much success? I have an upcoming hockey tournament where I will potentially be photographing 19 games in 7 days. Shooting commercial and portraits tethered has been wonderful so I am wondering if that same convenience can be used shooting sports.

Those that have done this, is it worth it? Do you find it was easier than just offloading cards in between games?

Thanks all.

In my opinion it would only be worth it if you have an assistant culling the shots and doing basic adjustments while you are shooting the game. If you are shooting by yourself, you would not gain much.

Does the TF actually know about the soda cans and PVC pipe from 30 years ago?

Thanks, that's kind of what I thought. I think I might try it for a game or two to see what its like but I don't think I'll rely on it for this tournament.

I do lots of cards and unload. if you are not busy between periods its enough time to unload a card or 2. Not much else of course but you could get it going that way. Pre make your folders for all the games and periods and copy over. Rename later.

airbutchie - Joe was definitely right about adding contrast...

Are you talking about shooting actual games? Wouldn't it dramatically slow down the speed you can shoot at? Also you would have to have the computer next to you with a cable to the camera, which limits movement... unless you tether wirelessly which would be even slower.

And what would be the benefit? Unless you have an assistant sorting/culling the images they are just going to sit on the computer.

Gear Canon 5DIII + Fuji X-T2 + lenses + a plastic widget I found in the camera box.

I imagine the benefits of shooting tethered would be lost if you were using LR to tether with. Capture One would be much better but I think it's still not fast enough if you burst shots.
