Image of the following product: HDLA-3501


The HDLA-3501 allows operation of the HDC cameras together with large studio/OB lenses and viewfinders. It provides a very simple one-touch cable-free mounting of the camera head so that it can be quickly and easily converted from hand-held to tripod configuration. This is an affordable and lighter model with its simple features while allowing you to utilize the rear panel operations on the combined camera head by the wider open area of HDLA-3501 mechanical exterior design.


Quick mounting of portable camera head by one-touch instant docking mechanism

The camera can be fitted quickly and easily into the adaptor. This unique mechanism allows the Sony camera to be attached and detached without removing the large lens. To provide efficient operation in studio or OB environments, the large lens adaptor has a unique design that allows the camera to be converted from hand-held to large-lens configuration in just a few seconds. This is available by cable-free operation with all connections contained in "hot shoe" mounting. Utilizing the interlocking mechanism, power, video, and control signals are passed on directly from the camera head to the HDLA-3501, without requiring additional cable connections.

Compatible with HDVF viewfinders

The HDLA-3501 is specifically designed to allow the Sony HDVF viewfinders to be mounted on the rear of the camera body.

Note that the saddle mount type viewfinder cannot be combined with.

USB connector

The type-A USB connector is provided on the inside panel for power supply to the appliance gadget, such as a tablet PC.
