    Hi

    I'm sure this happens to loads of people, but I lost my cable for my Panasonic FX-7 digital camera, and am now stuck. Panasonic want £30 for a replacement which is very steep! Does anyone know where I can find a better deal with cables?
    Cheers
    Ben

    When you say cable do you mean the power cable?

    It may well be a standard cable, but they're not all the same standard so best check which kind first. Agree with seany though couple of quid top whack.

    Panasonic online have it here at £4.76 (not due until the 10th of this month) so I don't know where you got the 30quid from.
    BTW I doubt it's a standard USB-USB cable.
    Surely most digital cameras have a proprietary connector at the camera end?

    It is a standard USB miniA to B. The mini A end comes in a few sizes but if you find the right one it will work.

    Call me a pedant if you want, but isn't that a contradiction in terms?

    Yes it is indeed! Since when in computing has a standard actually been the same though!
