[AG-TECH] S-video cables

On doing some research into s-video cables, I've noticed that there seem to
be a wide variety of options, e.g. plated copper alloy  for the lead, gold
plated contacts, etc. To go with this, there are a wide variety of prices!
I've also been told that the mid-priced leads can't really be used over more
than 5m. I know that we can spend a few hundreds of pounds to get very high
quality stuff.

Can anyone provide any recommendations/guidance on this subject? E.g should
I just go for the cheapest and limit the distance between PC and cameras? Or
are these no good anyway?

Thanks in advance.
