I heard the Nikon D40 and D60 don't come with an A/V cable and their reviews here say that, also. Why is that? Where is a good place to get an A/V cable for them? A friend is considering buying a D40 or D60 but wants a cable.

What cable do you need? I have one of these if you want, not sure if it is what your looking for. It does not list the newer cams.

Just checked, its the one Jeff lists for the D40 and the D60. I can help your friend out.

Thanks but your link says the cable is out of stock and it's for the D50, D70, and higher models, not the D40/D60.

is there one for the D40/D60? I would think most owners would want one so was expecting an easy answer.

There's something. I can't remember what, as I've never used it, and I'm away from my box, so I can't tell you.

Have you actually gone to your local camera retailer and asked?
I suspect that very few D40/D60 owners would want such a cable but any decent retailer should have a list of options and will probably have a suitable cable in stock.

That model (Nikon EG-D100 Video Cable) will work for the D40. I have picked one up for a friend as the D40 doesn't come with one. The D80 cable will also work although you won't need to hook up the audio part.

I see thanks for the help. They are just shopping and looking at other SLR's so don't need a cable yet. But thanks for the offer.

Yes I did check with my local camera co and they said search the web. It's strange that the online sellers of the EG-D100 Video Cable are all out of stock. Nikon should just include an A/V cable with the SLR.
