AC Power cord
When will Sony learn?
I guess I don't learn, either. Tired of proprietary connectors on their cameras (can't just hook up/charge with miniUSB). I was going to buy this since I misplaced the charger - thinking that it would be useful to me even once I found the charger - but to my shock - it does not charge the camera!
You make great products, but still manage to muck it up with boxing the consumer in and making stupid accessories. Why not just use mini-usb and charge via that?
Still irritated with you creating *another* memory card standard long ago - as if there weren't already enough...

Useless to charge battery
This cable is advertised as being able to charge the battery without having to remove it from the camera. That is false, even if you buy a 2nd cable $40 ($80 total) it will still NOT charge the battery. Instead, you have to take the battery out of the flimsy door. That is just silly. My Casio which is 7 years old has ONE cable that plus into the wall. Simple. I do like my Sony camera but I have serious doubts about the thought process of the Sony Engineers. Buy a different camera with less headaches.

Extra VMC-MD1 Cable Not Always Required
The new DSC-TX7 comes with a multi-output stand
to which this adapter can connect making it unnecessary
to buy a multi-use terminal cable, at least for that
incredible model. Determine what is included, or not, with your camera.
