After getting one for my 5D2 things got a lot better.
The LockPort 800 is a new product developed to help avoid damaging your D800 mini HDMI camera port.
The LockPort 800 protects definitely the fragile output on your camera from tough production abuse with a rock solid
universal clamp and a smart mini to full-size HDMI adapter.
The LockPort 800 camera plate is designed to fit easily every head, baseplate, sliding plate, support out there
using the original camera screws already there. Ready in 10 seconds!
The LockPort 800 safely secures a 90° FRONT/REAR mini HDMI to full-size HDMI adapter, protecting forever the “expensive to repair”
mini HDMI port on your expensive HDSLR camera.
The Adapter has gold plated contacts and the full-size female output allows you to use stronger standard HDMI cables, you can purchase everywhere!
Standard size HDMI plugs locks securely in the socket – no signal loose, and if somebody walks over your cable, the plug still can pop-out
saving your camera from falling on the ground.
The full-size HDMI 90° output can be used in FRONT or REAR position (2 different adapters) to reach the
best cable ergonomics solution on your rig set-up!
The LockPort 800 adapters are availbale in FRONT and REAR editions, also available in kit or sold separately to upgrade the kits or like spare parts!
Instant reverse output direction set-up.
