8 pin USB Micro plug?
I have two cameras and several charging cables that use what sort of LOOKS like a Micro USB B plug. On closer examination, the plug is shaped similarly to the USB Micro B, but it's smaller. On even closer examination, this smaller plug has 8 pins in it instead of the 5 that the Micro USB B has. Any idea what these are? I don't seem to find any reference to it anywhere. I did find a reference to the USB Micro A plug, but the specs say it's the same size as the USB Micro B and has 5 pins. So I don't think this is a Micro USB A, since this one is definitely smaller and has 8 pins.
I've uploaded a picture. On the right is the standard USB Micro B plug that is used by almost all phones and tablets. On the left is this smaller plug that seems to be used mostly for cameras.
