    Well he is partially right. The external cable does replace the 3 pins of the hot shoe if you don't wish to use it. I wouldn't say the the wires don't do anything. They are designed to power the gimbal via the hot shoe if you don't want to use the cable. The hot shoe is a little more convenient but I wouldn't bother with it if the wires broke.

    Hey robmiller1000, I spent a week trying to find the same thing! i finally found them and received them yesterday. they are just plain old cd-rom cables used to attach cdrom drives to the soundcards in the 90's. here is a link to the ones i ordered for dirt cheap. i ordered 6 and they sent me about 10! they said they have been in there warehouse since 2000. you will have to splice the wires or even add the two additional wires to make the camera work. I am using these to attach LED mods and such to the 4 in 1 adapter.
    here is the link:
