A client wants to use a small Sony camera like the FS7 or Pxw-z280 for a shoot and wants to live feed it to a screen with a 50 meter (164ft ). I remember had problems doing this before with a Sony EX1 cause the signal was not strong enough from the camera, and we ended up getting a bigger Sony camera. What would you say is the maximum length of an SDI cable from those small cameras? I realize it depends on quality of the cable, etc but if you have any general idea, it would be helpful. thx.

I heard it was only 50-100ft period. I have no clue how you're getting 164ft.

 

Also I might be thinking of audio cables...

Took me 2 sec too google it n find out its 100m. I got 164ft by converting 50m to feet. Yes I think you're thinking about some other cable...
