Shaun you are wise beyond your years...As I always say "I would never walk on a deck I built myself, and I would never use cables I soldered with (and burned) my own two hands" I have had a lot of success with a local A/V shop. They can make custom cables in a couple of days, and they always talk me out of trying to do something when I come to them with a new crazy idea!

Who you calling a wise guy?

I have (literally) 3000+ feet of video cable here in various lengths with BNC ends mounted by me and I would suggest I trust less than 10 of them implicitly. Sooner or later I decided my reputation was worth more than the money I "saved" by making my own. Having said that, I'm looking seriously at getting a compression tool and going to compression fittings instead of crimp on.

I've heard good things, might get one myself. The last station I worked at we would literally take every cable of the truck, cut the connectors off and replace them after every season. It seemed a bit extreme but we rarely had issues with a bad cable on air. I have several (full) garbage cans of BNC cables of various lengths in my garage, and one day...when I get really bored.. I'm going to cut all of those connectors off a replace them... I've been stalling for some type of Wi-Fi/ IP cabling solution, but as that still seems a bit Jetsons at this point, I'll pull those cables out of the garage one day soon.

You're better off buying ones from a company like Markertek (or better yet buy their adapter kit) The ones from them are slightly larger and have a more positive grip on the rca plug on your camera, and are less like to slip off...
Thanks for the heads up. Went to Le Shack and they wanted $6.99 for Male BNC to female RCA adapters. Marketek wanted $1.99.

Be aware that there are good and bad adapters.
I stopped using them and made proper cables instead, as these are giving you the first bad contact during a live-event.
