USB Cable IFC-200U

[ Edited ]

Just purchased a 6d Mark ll and it does not come with interface cable to transfer images from camera to computer/MacBook Pro. When checking on Canon website it shows this interface cable  USB Cable IFC -200 U but  does not list 6d Mark ll as compatible. What kind and where do I buy  cable that works?

B&H sells high-quality USB cables that aren't very expensive.

Hello!

 

This is just a standard USB Type A to Mini B cable. The kind that most of our cameras, and most older cell phones used to used to use. It was the standard for quite a while, and should be fairly easy to find. 

 

This is what the camera end should look like:

That cable should work ...

... although an IFC-400U is the listed accessory. My 6D2 works with all of my cables that work with the 6D.

Just my .02 cents...

 

How about $5 (Err, $4.79) [link disabled per forum guidelines]

I do not see what cable you are refering to on Canon site, the one cable on that site is a ifc 400cpu which is out of stock and does not list the 6d or 6d mark ll as compatible. I wonder why this camera does not come with the interface cable

That surprises me too. I believe all my Canon cameras have come with the appropriate cable, including my wife's 7D2, which uses micro-USB 3.

Take another look at the page.  It is the "Accessories" page for the 6D Mark II.  

Why Canon would not include a cable with the camera is beyond my understanding.  It is not like the cost of the cable would have a major impact on the cost, as it would with the Point and Shoot market.

 

[EDIT]  I just took another look, and the IFC-200 cable is listed.  You have to scroll on the right side of the page to see it.
