Hi all,

Topic didn't appear to exactly fit anywhere else so apologies.

Can anyone recommend a friendly, experienced cable maker based in the UK? I'm talking for all the little adaptors and bits that end up on the camera, whether video or power or both.

I was going to get Black Box video to do a load but having phoned them earlier it appears they've finally bitten the bullet - the answerphone message said they've officially retired as of August 22nd.

Cheers,

Hi,

In UK I would suggest to ask directly to Lemo UK, I had a pack of cables made by them and the quality is perfect and none of them were faulty.

As a side note I would like to say that I had a very unpleasant experience with a US based company that used to advertise on this forum, not only almost half of the cables I ordered were badly soldered (the ARRI 24V was connected to the 12V pins, the Scorpio MDR cable had the 12V and 24V pins connected together !?!...) but the overall quality was sub-par and when I contacted the cable maker/company owner about the problems not only he didn't apologize or offered any help but he was even extremely rude.

I spoke with two others fellow operators who had the very same problems with cables' quality and the guy's rudeness towards non US customers.

So go and try Lemo UK

Cheers,

K.
