LockCircle Introduces LockPort A7 and LockPort GH4

by Hugh Brownstone1 Comment

Ever get annoyed and anxious as the mini-HDMI or mini-USB port on your camera becomes looser and looser – and you just KNOW the connection is going to become unreliable sometime very soon?

Me too.

Good to know, then, that the team over at LockCircle offers LockPort, a simple and what appears to be robust solution to the problem.

With a 90 degree angled connector integrated with base plate to truly lock the connection in place, LockPort is available  for a limited number of specific cameras like the Canon 5D Mk III or Nikon D800 — and now the Sony A7s and Panasonic GH4  (check their web site). You can order it with the connector facing forward, backward or both; for USB alone, or USB and HDMI (dual) – but you cannot mount the mini HDMI and mini USB at the same time, as there isn’t enough space between the ports.

LockPort is shipping now. Visit the site at www.lockcircle.com/lockport and get  your LockPort A7 and LockPort GH4.

The LockPort A7 and LockPort GH4 safely secures a 90° REAR micro HDMI to full-size HDMI adapter, protecting forever the “expensive to repair” micro HDMI port on your expensive 4K cameras.

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.
