    Digital Camera Samsung PL70 - HDMI Question

    Hi all. Anyone got the above Samsung PL70 Digital camera and know how to connect to an HDMI TV?
    The manual mentions an HDMI adaptor you can buy, but doesnt say where and I cant find any online.
    I phoned Samsung technical help and they are hopeless.
    1st phone call - they gave me a phone number for parts - the number didnt exist.
    2nd phone call - Hadnt heard of the adaptor - suggested using a "suitable" cable.
    3rd phone call - told me to but a Mini HDMI to HDMI cable - I bought 1 from play.com but it didn't fit.
    Thank you very much if anyone can assist !

    It's in your manual pages 64-5 mate:

    You need an optional hdmi adaptor and cable.

    Yes, cheers, I already saw the manual mentions this HDMI adapter but nowhere tells you where to get one from. Samsung tech support don't even know !

    What kinda connection is there on the camera for video out?

    Is it a DVI?

    There is only 1 connection on the camera - presumably a connection only samsung use of similar (but not same) size as a Mini HDMI
    A supplied cable connects this to the battery charger or the PC
    Another supplied cable connects from this connection, has 2 jacks - yellow and white at the other end. This can connect to my HDMI TV, but it is not HD !
    No other cables supplied

    Cheers

    Found it on Samsung's website:

    that looks like it
    at least i know it exists now
    U would think it would be easier to get hold of 1 / or better still supplied with the camera when u buy it.
    I just phoned Samsung support again - closed !
    Will try again next when it opens.
    Thanks again

    I had a good look about to see if anyone sells it - but couldn't - I guess Samsung must sell it - if only they knew how!

    :thumbsup:

    I have just bought a Samsung WB1000 camera; it looks as though it has the same connector. I have same results as you from Samsung. I have put an inquiry by e-mail to them.
    There are leads on Ebay which claim to be compatible, but I am sure from the photos that they won't fit. I have sent questions to those suppliers.
    The photo that you show doesn't convince me. That rectangular piece doesn't show a connector, What is it???
    I have recently bought Samsung 40" TV, J70 phone and this camera, but this is a black mark for Samsung!
    If anyone finds the answer, I'd like to know.
