Serial cable pinout for digital cameras

Female DB9

1/8" (3.5 mm) Stereo plug. Click for larger picture.

Radio Shack Catalog Numbers:
Female DB9 276-1538 D-sub Hood (cover) 276-1539
1/8" Stereo Plug 274-284
Wire (this is just one choice, any 3 conductor cable will work).
20 f t. 278-514 You only need about 6 feet.

Another thing you can do to build this cable is to buy a 6 foot mini-stereo cable. It has two 1/8" mini-stereo plugs, cut one end off and install a female DB9 and hood. Use one of the following connections.

Serial Cable pinout
Connector cable pinout (9 pin female RS-232 to 2.5mm stereo plug (or the size that fits your camera) )
Only a few serial digital cameras use this connection.
DB9 pin 2 to tip
DB9 pin 3 to base 
DB9 pin 5 to middle


If the above does not work use this instead:  
Relisys Dimera 2000 and 3500 Uses this Connection.

I have two cameras that use this connection.
