usb connector A300 camera

I need a new USB cable for an a300 camera. In the manula it describes it as 'usb jack'. Which seems a very outdated concept. Looking online for all types of USB doesn't come up with a match. I found one on Amazon that claims to be compatible but it's hard to be sure.


Is this a propriatory Sony USB connection? What type of USB lead should I search for? How will I identify the right one?

The A300 uses a non-standard 8 pin UC-E6 USB connector, so you must use a USB cable with a UC-E6 connector on one end. This particular connector has been used by a number of digital camera manufacturers in the past. Searching for a Sony specific cable isn't necessary, as the one specified for Nikon, which is more common, will work as it has the same pin-outs.
