A digital camera USB cable is one of the easiest way of transferring pictures from your digital camera to your computer. Most cameras come with one by default, but sometimes, it gets broken or misplaced and needs to be replaced. USB cables for digital cameras have one USB connection and a digital connection that will vary, depending on the camera model. This article details out where to buy a digital camera USB cable.
Depending on your camera model, the easiest way of finding a spare USB cable is going online.
Your camera manufacturer

Shopping in person
If you don't want to wait for your cable to be delivered, you can also buy it in person in many High Street electronic shops.

This retailer is specialised in photography products and if they don't have the exact cable for your model, they may be able to offer you a white label alternative or order it for you from the store. They don't stock many low-end cameras, which may be an issue if yours is not from a major manufacturer. Currys
Currys is a major electronics retailer and its shops often stock adaptors and card readers, even for picture capable phones. If they don't have what you need, you can take a look at their website, and order to collect it in their store in person.
