What USB cable to use for PictBridge? Is Mini-B to Standard-B cable available?

I'd like to print directly from my Canon DSLR to a Canon printer at an upcoming Christmas / Santa event. My understanding is that the PictBridge standard enables this.

However, I'm baffled on how to actually connect the two devices. The printer has a "Standard-B" USB connector, and the camera has a "Mini-B" USB connector. I've never encountered such a cable.

According to the Wiki sub-section on USB connector types , such a cable is considered non-standard .

Huh?

Would I have to find an adapter cable that could fit between the two cables, so I'd have a total of three cables (or two cables and an adapter)? If it exists?
