The Manfrotto 522SCA is an available option for the 322RS electronic shutter release for the 322RC2 grip action ball head, and also a replacement remote control for the 521, 522, & 523 remote controllers.  It is a standard coiled subminiphone male (2.5mm) to subminiphone male cable, 9.8" (25 cm) in length normally and expanding to 19.7" (50 cm) when uncoiled.

This is the 'stereo' version of the subminiphone cable; some 2.5mm devices don't need the 'stereo' function of the plug, but it would likely still function normally with them.  There are quite a number of various products on the photographic market which employ this 2.5mm subminiphone connection.

        Spoke to the sales staff who took the time to explain what pieces of equipment were needed to trigger my monitor / recorder to simultaneously activate when I press my record button of the camera. Have always received this type of service whenever I've purchased equipment from B & H.

            I use this cable to trigger the recording of my camera from my Atomos Ninja recorder to make a copy of my recording. It is the solution I was looking for.

                  While I do not understand why Canon change from the 3 prong connect to this for the Canon 70D. This product worked great to connect the camera to the 322RS mounted on a 322RC2 tripod head. Great for nature photography.

                    We use the remote trigger this cable is for every day. When a cable failed on one of the remotes 2 weeks ago, I thought we were screwed. Thankfully, B&H had these ins tock and got them out to us in a couple days. Really saved our butts.

                      I bought this as a replacement for my LANC zoom controller for my Canon XH-A1. THe cable is sturdy and durable with the coil extension. Works great! I appreciate the 90 degree connector on each end. You can always expect pro quality from Manfrotto. B&H shipped quickly!

                        My original cable which came with Libec lanc controller for my sony camcorder, eventually wore out in 4 years, i had to replace it. BH suggested this cable. the best thing about it is coiled so it stretches only how much u require. 19.7 inches is good enough.

                          This is a really good cord. I like the fact that is retractable and is easy to keep in place. With so many other cables on my camera it helps to make it look clean!

                            Used as an extension for a camera remote. After a while I ended up using it as a replacement part. I broke a cable on my tripod and just cut this one in half and spliced the wires together and it worked great to get me through a jam.

                            It recoils well and stays small so it is easy to store and doesn't get all tangled up with everything else.

                                Pros: length, visibility, ease of connection
                                Cons: none

                                I feel these are so much better than the tiny LANC cables that are sold with most zoom controllers. My crew will often pack camera bags and either lose or forget to pack these 3" LANC cables, and it's frustrating. I love these because I can store them in the camera bags and know exactly where they are every time.

                                      Works fine with my Vivitar remote control.

                                        I've only played around with my remote a couple times, but the cable is the perfect length and works great!

                                                  Hardly much to review here. I purchased a wireless shutter release, and vivitar didn't supply the right cable for my camera. After talking to their tech support, it was more hassle to try to return the items [...] so I figured out the specs for the cable and purchased this. It works great on my Canon 60D.

                                                    When I bought the Zoom Control for DV Cameras by Libec. BH suggested this, I'm glad I got it. The cord gave me that extra length that I needed and it has angled plugs which keep the cords more contoured to the cam and not be easy to bump into and break. For the price you can go wrong!

                                                      I use this with my zoom control on a Sony PD150. It works great. I used the coil wire to replace a straight cord that always caught on the tripod. Gets the job done and doesn't affect panning, or tilting.
