I just tested the 4m long cable that comes with the Zed Mini augmented reality camera.
No sound or vibration, but that may be the beta. The video is perfect.
But I wouldn't recommend buying a $449 stereo camera just for a cable. 🙂

It looks like that link got messed up. It should be referring to the 10' version. (The Canada link still does.) It may be an Amazon.com problem, because the 10' version isn't listed there at all. (Maybe it was pulled because it's sold out?)

That's the one I just ordered from Amazon CA. I had it in my cart since Monday, but didn't get paid until today. Yesterday it said they were out of stock until the 24th, Sunday, but when I went to finish my order today, they're now back in stock, and my shipment's expected Saturday.
