Several E-Bay sites are selling HDMI cables for $7.99 + 4.99 shipping. Bought one (beats the $40-65 inn Camera and electronics stores) they work fantastic! Nothing like seeing your photos on a 52 inch HD screen

No matter how slow the film, Spirit always stands still long enough for the photographer It has chosen.

CNET.com says this about inexpensive HDMI cables in their series about HDTV.

"Expensive cables aren't worth it

"If you walk into your typical electronics store to buy an HDMI cable, you're likely to see prices upward of $50 with promises of better performance and faster speeds. Do you really need to spend that much money on a single HDMI cable?

"Absolutely not--those cables are a rip-off. You should never pay more than $10 for a standard six-foot HDMI cable."

Thanks.

They are just wires.

Your link has some extra characters in it. It happens to me some times too.

Here is the working link, Quick Guide: HDMI and HDMI cables
