Component cable for FX1

Hi! I'm looking for a Component video cable for my Sony FX1. It must be 10 meters (or more) long. Do you know where I can find something like that? Thank you very much.

My first thought would be to cobble one up with female RCA's connecting to the stock Sony cable on one end, and makle Rca's on the other... What I don't know is what issues you will face with signal fade, degradation, interference on long runs like that... anyone here know the specs for maximum cable runs?

Wiring up the cable is nothing, whether it will work properly is another!

I've seen this stuff: what do you think?

Hosa RCA Adapter: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...CA_to_RCA.html

So the Sony component cable provided with my FX1 + Hosa RCA adapter + Hosa Component Cable

Yes, the cable plus adapter will work or see if you can find male to female instead of male to male cable and eliminate the adapter.
