where to find short stereo XLR Y-cable? AT835ST stereo shotgun mic on XH A1 or V1U

I'm either getting a Canon XH A1 or the Sony V1U.

The mic that I plan to get is the Audio-Technica AT835ST stereo shotgun mic.

According to AT, this mic comes with a 24-inch cable, 5-pin XLRF to two standard 3-pin XLRM connectors.

Does anybody know where I can find the same type of cable, except in 10" or 12" ? What is the ideal minimun length for my intended use?

Thanks a lot!

Edit: come to think of it, does the AT835ST even fit on the mic mount of either those camcorders? Thanks!

Closest I could find is 18 feet:

The usual approach is to attach two 3-pin female to 3-pin male cable for the run to you your camera position. Those are available in many lengths.

Another option is a 5-pin male to 5-pin female extentsion.

You need a shock mount for mounting the AT835ST to a camera, as with most external mics.

Try Sound Professionals

Try Sound Professionals - they carry 5 pin XLRF to dual 3 pin SLRM Cable adaptors wired for standard stereo and comes standard as 12" length - perfect for on-camera use.

Also consider the Edirol CS-50 Stereo shotgun. It's shorter and would fit nicer on those cameras. It also has a switch so you can go from "Focus" to "Wide ST"

A quick comparison of the physical characteristics of the CS-50 to an AT-897 tells me that Audio Technica may OEM the CS-50 to Edirol. And it's less expensive :)

The 835ST is 9"
CS-50 7.6"

They're exactly the same diameter.

The CS-50 includes a 10' cable

Cheaper is not always a deal.

There frequently are differences in OEM and Original gear. The Party for whom the gear is made asks for certain specs to make price points.

The SHure version of the Sound Devices mixer lacks transformers, for example.
