LANC cable extension

Can anyone direct me to where I can get a cable to extend a LANC remote switch?

Thanks

You'de best off if you contacted your actuall LANC controller manufacturer; for instance Manfrotto (whose supplied cords are notoriusly too short) has different extension cables in their offer.

Thanks Piotr, guess I better call Sony. What I have is fine for a tripod,but Im mount an HC-7 on top of my wakeboard tower. The current length allows me to attach to my sun cover (bimini) but I want to control it from the captains seat.

I THINK you could probably use a standard miniplug extension cable - seems like a Radio Shack item offhand? Not sure if there's a length at which it would become ineffective, but presume it's just a simple signal that shouldn't degrade too much over distance.

I bought mine from Markertek, about $20 for 12 feet - it works great on a small jib!

The least expensive solution is, as Dave says, to buy a miniplug extension cable from Radio Shack. That's what I did and the inexpensive cable carries the signal fine.
