Question: How can I get the greatest USB cable for a camera for transmitting images?
There are a lot of standards for transmitting images from a digital camera to a computer, among which are the FireWire and USB. In relatively more advanced cameras, they have the capability to send the images via wireless networks. However, until now, the USB cable has been the most popular device for transmitting images.
One important thing that you should not forget while using a USB cable is that some camera models requires the USB cables to work with a mini-USB connector or other kinds of USB connecting devices that don’t follow any standard. You need to have the proper connector to a USB cable when you buy a digital camera. In case that you want to substitute a USB cable, be careful in buying the correct device which has the right connectors.
For images of the high resolution which are produced by a digital SLR, the transmitting rate of your camera also needs to be high. This high transmitting rate is often found in some of the following devices: USB 2.0 (with the maximum rate of 60 megabytes per one second), USB 3.0 (with the maximum rate of 625 megabytes per one second) and the FireWire (with the maximum rate of 100 megabytes per one second). The FireWire is often not available in point and shoot cameras.
