lanc extension help

Hey again...

Just trying to find a lanc extension for my 2.5mm remote. Im using a jib and need to be able to zoom from the base. Can this be purchased in Austin, Texas? I know that varizoom is located here. If not, would anyone local be willing to rent it for 1 day for say... the cost of a domestic 6 pack? ill pick up and return.

512-789-3906 for the extra kind souls, for just normal philanthropism, a reply on here will suffice.

Varizoom does have those cables. I would give them a call since you are in Austin.

Clearly...

but not so clearly. You didn't stress an immediate or same day need in your original post.

Radio Shack might have them for future reference. If they don't have the mini cable then you could do what I've done and buy the standard cable extension and then buy adaptors that will adapt each end from standard to mini.

Good tip, James. Have done this myself in the past. I think it's a good idea also to wrap some gaff tape or electrician's black tape around those connections to the adapters at each end.

Aha. Good tip from you Chris. It wouldn't be fun if your cable got stretched and those connections pulled apart. I always make a loop at the connection to prevent that but sometimes that loop mysteriously moves up or down the run away from the connection defeating the safety. You can't go wrong with taping the connections.
