Extension for camera cable?

Hi,
Does anyone know where I can get an extension for the cable that plugs into the back of the camera? The camera mount broke, so I designed a new one that moves the camera out about 5 inches further forward. Unfortunately, the cable is too short to reach the new position. I'd like to just get a female to male extension cable for that connector type. Cutting and splicing a section of wire in just looks so messy.

Can anyone confirm what connector type the camera cable uses? It appears to be a JST 5 pin. Is it 1 mm or 1.25 mm or 1.5 mm pitch? It's so small, I'm thinking it's probably 1.0, but would like confirmation before I buy connectors to make my own extension. Anyone?
