Nikon d5600 shutter release cable

Can anyone point me to a long shutter cable for the d5600?
It's to connect the d5600 to an MGEN guider.

I found a 1 metre cable for the d5200: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...cable_for.html
Do the 5200 and 5600 have the same connector?

TIA

This release has a 3m cable.

You may need to solder a USB plug or whatever's required on the other end.


If that doesn't work, buy a short cable and cut it in the middle and solder in a long extension.

Thanks for the suggestion Joe, though I'm more comfortable with off the shelf electronics.
I got the stereo extension cable today and plugged it into the short camera cable with a 2.5 to 3.5mm adapter and it works.

Now I just need some clear weather.
