Any A/V or car audio guys that can help identify this camera connector?

Need to get a cable with two female ends or a coupler but I don't know what the cable is called. It is for a car rearview camera. Any help would be appreciated.

What are you trying to do, are you trying to extend one of those wires or connecting more than 2?

One wire has the wrong connector. I have 3 male connections and 1 female connector. I need to join the two male ends so I need a Coupler or cable with two female ends. I don't want to cut and solder to keep the ability to quickly disconnect them.

Here is the other end where I have the issue, I included the pic with both to make it easier to identify.

thicker is probably due to shielding since its a video cable.

Cut and solder and put different connectors one. Problem solved.

We are talking about very thin wires here, while I'm sure I could solder them i'd rather buy the proper adapter instead of using two different ones.

Well the problem is that you have 3 males and 1 females... So that alone is already out of proportion... And then you're talking about combining 2 males... Ugh what's wrong with you?!?!
