Dear DPReview-Team, my dear Photographers,

I have a question regarding the Nikon D5200 and the USB-Cable which connects the camera body through its "unique" Nikon-Micro-USB-Slot to an USB-Slot e.g. USB 2.0. on PC/Mac.

(1.)

When I purchased the D5200, the package included a USB-Cable (see below at end of post for the link under 1.1.). The Online-Nikon-Page shows that D5200 Packet includes a UC-E17 USB-Cable and 1.2. shows that UC-E17 is the cable which is compatible with D5200; but it is a very short cable:

  • (see photos E17_01 until E17_10).
  • This UC-E17 from the Nikon Package has also a Ferrite Shield (see E17_02) and a detailed description on the cable itself.

(2.)

I purchased a longer cable at an online-seller who titled the 5 Feet long item with 'USB UC-E6 UC-E16 UC-E17 Data / Photo Transfer Cable Cord Lead Wire For Nikon Camera':

  • (see photos E6,E16,E17_01 until E6,E16,E17_08).
  • This 5 Feet long cable from the online-seller has "NOT" a Ferrite Shield and "NOT" a detailed description on the cable itself (see E6,E16,E17_01) and more connector lines (8 total -> see E6,E16,E17_08) than the short one (5 total -> see E17_09 + E17_10).

> Both cables have differences in the USB connector which goes into the PC/Mac, the Nikon-Micro-USB-Connector which goes into the DSLR body!!!

> PLEASE, DOES ANYBODY KNOW IF THAT E6,E16,E17-CABLE WON'T HARM MY D5200 ??? Please, look at the photos and tell me if the long cable might be harmful.

I haven't tried it out because I am affraid of an over-voltage-pressure by all these differences between the NIKON-Package UC-E17 short cable and the 5 feet long online-seller cable!!!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE FOR THE HELP !!!
