:help: I need to film a live event and need to know what cables I need to buy to connect my cameras to my Tricaster studio. I have a sony HDR-FX1 Digital HD video camcorder and canon Zr800s. Currently I am just using RCA cables, but I need cables at least 50' to film this event. Will you please tell me what I need and where to buy?

Thanks

By your post I assume you are currently using composite via a single RCA cable?
If your camera has Component video out, I would use that.
After that I would use S-Video or YC cables if your cameras have that.

If you are going 50' or more it's more important to use top quality cables. You can buy them at any decent video or sound store. Depending on your timeframe you can also buy them on line. We have used Markertek several times.
