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-3505, without requiring additional cable connections. The HDLA-3505 can be also used with the portable lens on the system camera by removing the front plate of the large lens support.
Note that the saddle mount-type viewfinder does require a cable connection.
