Are you sure ?.

My mate just bought himself a new Samsung camera with a connector that looks like MicroUSB, except about twice as wide. Y'know. Just to be annoying. Grr.

found it on ebay when i searched for lumix cable, i think these leads can be used to connect to pcs, and i think to connect to tvs?

I thought recently a lot of companies had volunteered to just use microUSB as a standard.

Some of those in the pictures look crazy!!
