Any experience with OTG and MHL cables for samsung s3 ?
Im looking to use a OTG cable connected to a camera , with a app to control the camera on s3 .
Been looking all over the net for OGT cable for s3 , but not sure which one is good/safe to use.

Was wondering , will a MHL , do the same thing as a OTG , or is it just for hdmi to tv ?

MHL is only for HDMI out from the device. Always buy Samsung genuine cables like these for 100% worry free use. I bought a cheap MHL adapter for my Galaxy Note 2 & had nothing but problems, it would work intermittently. Then I went out and bought a genuine Samsung MHL Cable & it works flawlessly & connects each & every time.
