Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC21 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I highly recommend that you avoid the cheapest cables. Generally speaking, they tend to fail at a much higher rate than cables in the mid to high cost range. The molded plugs crack, the end connectors become intermittent, and the wires inside the cable tend to "open" (come apart) when flexed or stored coiled too tightly. (All cables are best stored straight or, if need be, in a large loop).
Also, cheaper cables quite often have less "conductivity" and may be prone to have less "noise" (interference) suppression.
I assume your use is moderate at most (5-10 hours a week or less) in which case I beleive a mid-price cable--$25 to $35-- will work fine for you. Monster Cable is readily available online and in stores. Other brands usually have a selection of grades for the same length that you may need.
