Cables and Adapters for Sony Camera
Cables and adapters for Sony cameras are an essential piece of photography equipment when wishing to transfer data/photographs from your Sony digital camera to a PC or other device. Universal, generic and Sony branded cables will all do the same task, but prices may vary depending on your requirements.
Choosing cables and adapters for Sony cameras
The first thing to consider when buying replacement cables and adapters for your Sony camera is compatibility with the camera and the type of cable required. An extensive range of cables and adapters are available, all offering different functions and compatibilities.
A VMC 15MR2 AV Cable allows for audio left/right and video output functionality to TV/VCR/DVR etc, and is a universal cable compatible with many Sony cameras. This is an essential cable for connecting the camera to a screen in order to view recordings.
To link and sync a Sony camera to the PC for transferring photos to desktop folders, a USB cable is required. Unbranded mini USB to USB 2.0 cables are available at the lower end of the price spectrum, and feature much the same functionality as branded products.
A USB cable links your Sony camera directly to the PC, USB dock, or photo printer, for either data transfer or up to rates of 480Mbps, or direct printing. This cable can also be used to charge your Sony camera whilst it's interfacing with the PC.
Micro HDMI to HDMI cables are an essential purchase for linking Sony cameras with HDMI compatibility to devices including TV and PC for high definition data transfer of your photo collection and videos.
These cables are compatible with Sony cameras and HandyCams with micro HDMI port and are available at competitive prices at the lower end of the price spectrum for unbranded cables.
As with all electrical cables, always check compatibility with your particular Sony camera before purchase.
