LockCircle: Lock in for HDMI camera ports13 September 2014
DSLRs typically have less than robust HDMI connections, which are easily pulled out or damaged. To counter this, LockCircle developed the LockPort, which protects the fragile output on the camera from abuse thanks to a solid universal clamp and a smart micro to full-size HDMI adapter (which allows you to use stronger standard cables).
The full-size HDMI 90° output can be used in the front or rear positions (there are two different adapters) to provide the best cable routing for the rig set up.
It is already available for the Canon 5D and 7D, Nikon D 800 and Blackmagic Pocket cameras, and now the Sony A7S and Panasonic’s popular Lumix GH4 models have been added to the list. The camera plate takes seconds to fit, and costs e129. The LockPort GH4 weighs 100 grams, while the LockPort A7comes in at one hundred and twenty grams.
