The HDLA-1500 allows operation of the HDC-1500 HD portable camera or HDC-3300 SuperMotion camera together with large studio/OB lenses and 7" viewfinders. Unlike traditional lens "build-up kits", the HDLA-1500 provides a very simple one-touch cable-free mounting of the camera so that it can be quickly and easily converted from hand-held to tripod configuration.
The HDLA-1500 is finished in a pale grey body colour, the same as the HDC-1000 studio camera. If required, a dark coloured version, HDLA-1500/B is also available.
One-touch instant docking mechanism
The camera can be fitted quickly and easily into the adaptor. This unique mechanism allows the HDC-1500 to be attached and detached without removing the large lens.
Quick mounting for portable camera head
To provide efficient operation in studio or OB environments, the large lens adaptor has a unique design which allows the camera to be converted from hand-held to large lens configuration in just a few seconds.
Cable-free operation with all connections contained in "hot shoe" mounting
Utilizing a newly developed interlocking mechanism, power, video, and control signals are passed on directly from the HDC-1500 to the HDLA-1500, without requiring additional cable connections
Built-in teleprompter power supply
Utility power (200-240V AC) is available from the large lens adaptor, when used in conjunction with the HDCU-1000 camera control unit
Same handling characteristic as full size camera
All the control features and functionality traditionally associated with full size cameras are provided in this efficient operational package. The HDLA-1500 also has a viewfinder position which is notably lower than the comparable models. This low-profile design significantly improves the operator's view, as well as minimizes the parallax between the optical axis of the camera head and viewfinder.
