Basically a simple “micro-usb” connection option.... This cable is actually quite flimsy. The wires are extremely thin and the plug that connects to the gimbal is really small and fragile. The whole setup feels very delicate compared with the “mini-usb” and “usb-c” cables that shipped with the GP-Pro (for the Hero 3/4, and 5/6/7 respectively). This cable gets the job done. I just don’t anticipate it lasting long, especially if you use multiple cams in your gimbal and have to unplug and replug it often, as I do.
