This camera cable works well and brings a lot of capability to the RPi. A word of caution - the ends of the cable are not cut square. I was seating them in the connectors by pushing them all the way in until they were seated solid to the connector header, and the camera was giving intermittent results - dark picture, lines, pixelation. Because the ends weren't square, the circuits were touching multiple contacts. I pulled the cable out, made sure they were straight in and out of the connectors, clamped the connectors closed, and now it works reliably.
This allows the camera module to be mounted a ways from the RPi 3. It would be nicer if it was a round cable with the proper ends to connect to the board, but it will do.
What can I say, it's a long cable. I user it for octopi to film my 3d prints. The long cable allowed me to attach my pi camera top the printer bed. It works perfect for my application.
