You have very interesting pages. Especially thanks for "Olympus C-2500L Serial Cable Pin-Out". Now spending only 50c for 2.5mm jack + using a 'dead' mouse, I've got a serial cable which costs $30-$40.
By the way, you can add to your page that this Cable Pin-Out works with Olympus 3030 too. Testsd!

Hi! I looked at your page and I found your pinout. After some try, I found the pinout for the Samsung Digimax 800k.... The part C of your diagram plugs in the pin #5 (Ground) The part B goes with the pin # 3 then part A goes with pin #2 Thanks a lot! your web site has made me save 80$!

This is also well working for the C3000 model. It is ... how you say ... magnifique to not be screwed out of $40.

Your cable works great with my Olympus D-450 Zoom and this freeware software:
Epson PhotoPC Software for Unix/Linux, Windows, and MS-DOS
I use this under GNU/Linux with the D-450

This connector looks similar to what is used with the cheap Kodak digital cameras (320 and 640 models). Do you know if this cable will work with an Olympus C-2100 UZ? Thanks
Fri Aug 3 10:42:33 PDT 2001
Sorry, that should have been the cheap cameras from Polaroid rather than Kodak. Will the cable from the Polaroid PDC-640 work? Thanks

Please let me know if this setup works with my Camedia D-360L i really need this cable and they don't ship this ouside US and Canada.
Thank you in advance.

The serial cable wiring you explain for Olympus C2500 works fine with my C2100 UZ! Thanks!

I have seen someone selling a serial cable that works with the following digital cameras: D-220L, D-320L, D-340L/R, D-360, D-400, D-450, D-460, D-500L, D-600L, D-620L, C-2000,C-2100, C-2020, C 3000, and C-3030Z.
Since some of you are so kind to point out that this serial hack will work with the D-450 and C-2100 UZ. I suspect this hack will work with all of the models mentioned in the previous paragraph.

Thanks for the info. You saved me some bucks and helped me make points with my girlfriend. It works fine with the D220.

This cable will work with the Agfa ePhoto 780c digital camera.

Your cable works with an Olympus C860L (communication using photopc under linux). Thanks a lot for your page: I have forgotten my cable at home and really needed to transfer these images today.

Info + question: All parts for this are available from Mouser Electronics, who will supply you a free catalog, 800-346-6873, including the 6' 3-conductor cable with molded 2.5mm 3-conductor plug. (This is much better than adapting a 3.5mm plug to 2.5mm.) You'll have to order all parts for the serial receptor plug separately, including pins. My good cables from Olympus measure shorted across some of the other pins. Is it necessary to short these with jumpers fro proper operation?
Sat Dec 15 05:45:07 PST 2001
I had not shorted those pins that you were talking about and the cable has worked fine for me.

This cable works with my C-3000 and Macintosh. I used Radio Shack #274-298 for the plug ($1.99). On the Mac serial cable, A goes to Pin 5, B goes to Pin 4, C goes to Pin 3.

Thanks for the great site! I bought a refurbished Olympus camera that did not come with any cables, and so had to build a serial transfer cable following the instructions on your site, and it works great!
I purchased the stereo submini phone plug (fits 3/32" jack) at Radio Shack (# 274-244), and took an old 6 foot length of 4 wire telephone cord that I had laying around, and used that as the cable. However, I had to trim down plastic around the phone plug so it would plug snugly down into my camera jack. But having done that, it works great!
I did want to ask if anyone had the specifications (plug type/size and wiring) for each end of the NTSC cable that comes with the Olympus digital cameras (I have the D-460 Zoom). If you wouldn't mind posting it here or emailing it to me, I would appreciate it.
Thanks again for a great site!

That's a good idea, Jkaos. The digital camera to video cable should be fairly straight-forward. Look for an article covering that pin-out on here soon.
Fri Feb 22 17:28:18 PST 2002
This pin out works fine with D-360L cameras. The stereo plug has to be 1,5 mm (not 2,8 mm).

2-12-2005 - Thanks much! Your information on the Olympus C-2500L serial pin-outs saved me $50.00 USD.

I believe this serial cabel layout works with all Olympus cameras with serial datatransfere
Thu, 29 Mar 2007 13:27:36 -0800
It works! The cord for the C2500L at work is lost, and I couldn't find a replacement, but I found your web site. A head set that I never use, which came with my cordless phone, an old serial cable from work, my trusty soldering iron, and 5 minutes later that puppy's ready to hunt. Thanks.
