Default USB cable C-720

Where can I find/buy a USB download cable for C-720 at a resonable price.

Unfortunately USB cables for digital cameras are not cheap as they aren't standard (it's funny that my $50 JamCam uses a standard USB cable). The Olympus online store sells the cable (CB-USB4 that's for the C-720) for $44US.

An alternative is to get a card reader.

You may want to try asking in the C-700 Yahoo Group (also for 720 and 730 users), http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Oly_C-700/

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the C-720 use a standard mini-B USB connector like the C-730, and most other digital cameras for that matter?

If so, I can get 2m USB A to mini-B cables for 2.95 ($4.74) each here in the UK so I'm sure you can find some over the pond if you do a Google search for "mini-b usb cable", or look on E-Bay.

I think the 720 cable is different than 700 one...a friend of mine who has a C-2100 is mad because her D-Series requires a different cable so can't use one cable for both.

I bought my wife a D520 for christmas and noticed that the connector is slightly different than my C700. What genius at Olympus thought this up? Did they never consider someone might buy two Olympus cameras? I use an external reader, so both cables are in the desk drawer for now, but if I wanted to hook them up to the back USB ports and leave them connected, I would have to buy a hub.
