Not a fail on your part, These type of "special" connectors are a serious problem in the industry, You take a standard connection system and fit a non standard plug and socket on your product, thus creating an exclusive after-market for spares.

A lot of the traditional camera manufacturers did it often, in the early days, with the excuse that they had to find a socket that fitted their product design, that is only acceptable as long as you do not advertise the connection as the standard

Ahh, I see. I hate propriety cables. Should be banned at conception IMHO.

I've dug a bit further and and got a copy of the manual for this particular camera. Do you think it's a propriety cable?

It looks like a standard mini type b cable will work with that camera.
It looks like they made the port on the camera so that the supplied cable will only work with that camera.

I have plenty of those types of cables with my external hard drives. They 100% do not fit. They're too large. In fact, everything about them isn't the same...
