    Does anyone know if it's possible (and how) to connect multiple USB devices to E-Mount body (a6000 in this particular case)?

    E-mount cameras are awesome, but their tethering capabilities are medieval when compared to canikon.
    To simulate comfort that im getting while tethering EOS camera via a single wire (switched 600D to A6000 mounted on microscope) i need to use HDMI wired to TV for live-view display and then I HAVE TO CHOOSE ONE USB connection between:
    - PC for Remote Camera Controll and saving images directly on HDD without all the fuss of transfering memory card.
    - Sophisticated focus bracket device, which in fact, on camera side is very simple. All it does triggering the shutter via sony USB cable (seems to me that it's just doing short-circuit thing).

    So i figured i could use some kind of USB combiner to get both of those devices connected. Did anyone tried to do that?
