Working off the tripod is no problem but when working the studio with a trailing cord to the laptop I guess there is always the risk that one day I may tread on the cable and strain the camera USB port?
Thanks for that. The Olympus cable remote may actually come with a Velcro strap, but if not they are available at discount, hardware & electrical/electronic stores & would help save a damaged connector (I stuffed my E520 by fitting the remote plug the wrong way round in the dark) & it would be a good idea to keep one attached to the USB camera cable too (to wrap around the tripod leg).
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
