Question E5-->USB cable 5m long - where can I buy one?

Hi all
I need to buy a rather long USB cable to use for tethering images directly to my PC using the imagecraft software. The longest I have found is 3m but that is not long enough. The PC is a tower so very cumbersome to move.

Has anybody seen a 5m USB cable from an online shop Don't mind if it's not official cable, so long as it works.

thx
DK
PS: I bought a 10m USB repeater cable from amazon but it didn't work at all (with any device I used with it).

Re: E5-->USB cable 5m long - where can I buy one?

I bought a 10m USB extension cable from Amazon recently. It uses the standard camera to PC cable but fits between the PC and cable. Apparently it is necessary to fit amplifiers to a USB cable of this length and these are included in the cable, being driven off the USB power supply. I can not remember exactly how much I paid but it was about £10.

I am afraid I used it to tether a Canon camera, but I see no reason why it should not work perfectly on an E5.

Roger

Edit: it was £7.99

thanks to both for your replies. I think I'll try the 7day shop first, have also found a 5m cable myself now but it's out of stock.

thx to all, unfortunately the active USB repeater thing didn't work for me so I will go for a 5m cable (found one from amazon and have just ordered it) and see what happens.
