Extra Long RCA adapters?

Where does one get an extra long adapter that goes from the video output on the camcorder to the 3 banana plugs, preferably male, not female, all as an extension wire-set from the videocam on the end of a crane to the remote monitor?

I don't understand why you would want to go to banana plugs. Why not just stay RCA? Monoprice has a lot of triple RCA cables with male plugs at both ends. You can get couplers that can connect male to male. Video Cable - <b>RCA Composite</b>

It's relatively easy to make your own,

and you can then have them to just the length you need.

I've seen some sites that have them in lengths from abut 3 ft to 50 ft.

Check almost any cable supplier on the web.

You said banana plug, which is this: http://www.made-in-china.com/image/2...s-Set-Four.jpg
It's used for connecting speakers usually.
You want an RCA to RCA cable. You can get up to 50' RCA cables from monoprice.com for only $13.52. (see link in previous post.)

Re: Extra Long RCA adapters?

If you are like me, then you usually don't throw out old cables. I had a TON of unused RCA cords raning from 3ft to 5ft when I got a cheap monitor for my Kessler crane. A quick trip to Radio Shack and for about $4 I got a couple packs of RCA unions. It's basically just a double female and it's a quick easy solution for connecting my camera to my monitor, now I can see what my camera is pointed at.

Visit your local Radio Shack, they should be able to set you up with whatever you need. I've got everything from 3 foot to 50 feet with connectors to patch cable together to make give me about 200 feet. Not that I would ever do that but I could if I had. Almost all came from RS.
