I’m looking to pick up a new batch of THIN 75 ohm BNC cables in various lengths (2’, 10’, and 15’) for jumper cables as well as shorter cables for the sled.  I have purchased from Markertek in the past, but I’m having a hard time selecting what I need on their website (too many options and I’m illiterate with the techno-speak).  Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations on where to look or what cable/connector I should look for in pre-made cables?  Thank you in advance.

If you're in Los Angeles area (I know Brooks is, roughly, so I meant for anyone else reading this thread), Andrew Ansnick makes spaghetti thin BNC cables. He can be reached through the forum, or I'll give out his phone number (as long as you prank him occasionally with heavy breathing).

What can I get if I don't need any cables but already call him with heavy breathing?

Hi all;

I used to use these thin ones but got tired of ends being pulled off and much higher price and for 5-6 oz of weight ??

I had a very knowledgeable friend point out that the difference between the spagetti Bnc and reg short Bnc but the price is about $50-200 extra

I buy 2' -4 ' ft reg Bnc for about $6 each

Up to u but they last forever also unlike the spagetti ones and cost a fraction of the cost

HAVE video sells them in colors too and they are harder to loose.

Hi Brooks,

 

I'd also suggest Andrew.  He does great work.  He made all of mine for me last year and I haven't had any problems.  His prices are also VERY reasonable for what you get.  He also labels the length of each cable so it's quick and easy to choose the one you need.

I have some of Andrew's cables and they're very well made.  Alex White just wired up our two new Teradek Bolt wireless directors monitors and cages with them and they make a nice clean professional package.

 

Will, the next time you prank me at least block your number else it ruins the fun.

I second Janice.

You won't save much weight by using thin BNC.

Not all thin BNC cables are well shielded.

Signal might be interfered if walkie-talkie is used near by.

 

Cheers,

 

Ken Nguyen.

Janice, it's not about weight, it's about crossing the gimbal when you are hard wired

 

Brooks, I can help you out if you can't find any, I have all the correct tool to build them

I can't stand the spaghetti cables...

 

...unless they are al dente.

 

That is all.
