This 20 foot cable was designed for use with ImagesPlus Imaging Software. For downloading images, ImagesPlus software connects to the camera via the USB cable that came with the camera, allowing you to set capture mode, ISO settings, etc. However the camera's USB control is limited to 30 second long (or less) exposures. While the camera has a "bulb" setting for unlimited manual shutter control, it is only accessible through the camera's remote shutter control port. This port is intended for connection of external timers and switches that simulate a cable shutter release in a conventional film camera. This is where this special cable is required between a PC and the camera. ImagesPlus supports control of the camera through a PC's serial or parallel port. But what do you do if you don't have either? This cable is the answer. Load the included driver and you'll have complete control of your camera's shutter to take long exposures using ImagesPlus' Bulb Capture capabilities.
