I haven't ever tethered mine either, so I hope you didn't take that as a smart @ss comment.Couldn't find a way to attach to camera case itself so attached to mounting hardware. And mounting hardware broke. So tether and some hardware was still there but no camera in case. I will have to get creative about mounting to the case itself with the new camera. Maybe come up with some kind of permanent attachment (drill a hole add small bolt that would void the warranty anyway) to the camera case.
Anyway, still like the camera and appreciate your telling me about it.
I haven't had any trouble with any of my mounts, but maybe I should start tethering?
