Re: Extension Cable for C300 grip

Just back from a three day shoot with the C300 and the Zacuto Grip. Very nice having the hand in the proper positions. Worked perfect with my Movcam rig.

Re: Extension Cable for C300 grip

Did anyone ever find a source for an extension cable for the grip? I just purchased the Shape grip relocater and the shape handles only to find it doesn't come with an extension cable.. frustrating.

Or does anyone know the pin layout so I can get the cable custom made?

otherwise i'll be returning both items to my dealer and having to buy Zacuto..

Re: Extension Cable for C300 grip

Joe,
The only one I could find to buy was Zacuto. Works well and they replaced it with the updated cable with 90 degree plug at the camera since the straight one shorted out. Expensive but it works.

Re: Extension Cable for C300 grip

Hey Paul cheers for that.

I am going to ask my dealer if they are able to get the cable specs from Canon.. see if we can make it ourselves.. Zacuto obviously can.

Re: Extension Cable for C300 grip

Are you guys sure it's a special cable? I always assumed it was just a lanc connection which means you can use any old cheap lanc cable...

According to B&H all that is needed is a 4 conductor miniphone cable.....

Re: Extension Cable for C300 grip

Hi Jon,

Have you tried it with the cable?

I enjoyed the "Light Inside" on your site.

Re: Extension Cable for C300 grip

Paul - Thanks on the video.

I haven't tried the cable myself. B&H has a series of Cinema EOS videos on Vimeo and it's mentioned by the host there:
It's @ ~08:40 in. It's the first mention of the type of cable needed that I have heard.

I tend to use my C300 on sticks, monopod, or handheld so haven't had a need for the cable just yet.

He mentions the cable from around 2.40. It sounds too simple... who's willing to give it a try?

Re: Extension Cable for C300 grip

Vocas makes a extension cable for the Eos C range:

Remote cable for Canon EOS C100 / C300 / C500 | Vocas Systems

Edit: apologies, I've realised it's for their wooden grip.
