Finding my thin hdsdi cables I use on my sled aren't cutting it for some cameras and I'm not able to get a signal. What hdsdi bnc cable do you use and where can I buy it? I bought some that work but they are way too thick. Thanks

I've had some great success with cables made of Belden 9221 for HD-SDI that's spaghetti thin:


Some websites even sell those with a female BNC on one end and male BNC on the other end. Makes for quick, easy disconnect or connect, and one less link in the chain that might malfunction (eliminates the need for female to female BNC barrel).

This I found pretty useful since I'm looking at run a thin cable down my flyer's post. This looks pretty good.

I make these RG-179 cables using Belden Video Brilliance cable. I also have some Canare L-3C2VS cable, which is super flexible.

Bought some of these 3ft cables.  They've been super sturdy, very flexible, well insulated.  They're not spaghetti thin, just the next step up.
