The mount adds 18 inches of cable plus two connectors, which may be a problem for your camera. The USB3 signal from your camera is probably too weak to pass thru the extra length and connections. It may take the signal from a robust hub to go thru the mount axis reliably.

Subject: Re: [ap-gto] USB and cold weather
My camera unfortunately doesn't have a built in usb hub so I can't go from camera to hub. I am going to further experiment with this later today but at this point the only solution seems to be to not have through the mount cabling which was one of the factors that steered me towards this mount over its competitors.
I hope I can get this working reliably.
