Hi, I have a problem with battery grip I boutgh couple months ago. The shutter cable wich connects the grips shutter release and camera body has a connection problem and I cant find new cable anywhere. Does anyone know is it even possible to get new one without buying new grip?

Grip is Phottix bg-1100D (external link).

You'll be able to get one off Ebay very cheaply, just search for 1100D cable release.

Most I see are 1 meter (3 feet). How short do you desire?

The cable that came with the package is around 10cm (~ 0.3 ft.) long.

You likely will have to deal with the original vendor of the grip. However, if a replacement cable is available in the length you desire, keep in mind you already have a failure. I think I would go with a 1-meter cable, carefully bundle up the excess and wrap with some tape or a cable tie, and then live with the situation.
