    I've just purchased the Sony DCR-HC40 camera and am waiting for a bullet-cam to be delivered from rfconcepts

    http://www.rfconcepts.co.uk/helmet_cameras.htm

    so I can get some footage when I go snowboarding.

    My only problem is the supplied A/V lead when connected makes the camera body very wide. I'm concerned that any pressure (ie. a fall :) ) is going to put a lot of pressure on the socket and break it. Ideally if there were a right-angle jack I could use, this would solve the problem, but so far a web search hasn't come up with anything .

    The socket is a kind of semi-circle and then flat, with I think 5x2 connectors horizontally. I assume this is some kind of sony proprietary socket? Note, it's not the standard 3.5mm jack sadly.

    Does anyone know where I could get this kind of connector, or if there would be anywhere I could contact to get something like this made up? Ideally I want to put the camcorder in a bag around my waist, but this jack makes the whole thing stick out about another inch.

    Thanks, Bryan.
