Image of the following product: SMAD-P5


The SMAD-P5 Multi Interface (MI) Shoe Adaptor allows convenient, cable-free connection of the URX-P40 wireless receiver to compatible camcorders or interchangeable-lens cameras featuring an MI (Multi Interface) shoe. Audio signals are transmitted directly from the wireless receiver to the camera with no need for connecting cables. The adaptor also supports direct digital audio recording with compatible camcorders, bypassing A/D and D/A conversion stages to deliver high sound quality with low noise. The SMAD-P5 allows the wireless receiver to draw power from the camcorder via the MI shoe, while receiver power ON/OFF can be controlled directly from the camera.

The SMAD-P5 is applicable to XDCAM Camcorder PXW-Z280/Z190, PXW-X180/X160, PXW-X280/X200*, PXW-Z150**, PXW-FX9, PXW-FS7, PXW-FS7II, PXW-FS5, PXW-FS5II, PXW-Z90, and PXW-X70, NXCAM Camcorder HXR-NX5R**, HXR-NX80, HXR-MC2500, and HXR-MC88, Cinema Line Cameras IMLE-FX6V and ILME-FX3, Handycam FDR-AX60, FDR-AX45, and NEX-VG30, interchangeable lens digital camera α7II, α7III, α7RII, α7RIII, α7RIV, α7S, α7SII, α7SIII, α7C, α9, α9II, α1, α6600, and α99II with analog output setting.

*PXW-X200 firmware should be upgraded to Ver.2.00 or later for using SMAD-P5.
**When using with PXW-Z150 or HXR-NX5R operated by AC power, please set a battery on the camera. Without a battery, we do not guarantee the power supply function or power ON/OFF control function. In that case, insert new AA alkaline batteries in the receiver and set the receiver's power select (PWR SOURCE) menu item to BATT ONLY mode to avoid an unexpected shutdown of the camera or data loss.
***PXW-Z280/Z190 firmware should be upgraded to Ver.3.00 or later.
