  • Anyone interested in angle HDMI clamp kit for SmallRig BMMCC cage?

    Angle adaptors made HDMI port rather shaky on BMMCC. So yesterday i finished DIY hand-made angle HDMI clamp for SmallRig BMMCC. Works perfect. In future i plane to create some quantity in more industrial way with CNC and black anodized finish and sell it as a kit (HDMI clamp with 2 screws + UGREEN angle HDMI adapter + D-sub angle adapter)
    So let's see how many people may need it. Please leave reply or PM me if you are interested.

    Hmmm

    Where's the pressure that keeps the connector in place?

      The metal part just cut out very precisely to the size of angle HDMI adapter. It also holds it very well from the inner side (this can be precisely regulated by slightly shifting the clamp before fixing it on the cage with screws). This prevents angle HDMI adapter and HDMI port itself from shaking. Same time it don't fix it permanently.
      Regarding Cable HDMI connector - it don't fixed in the angle adapter at all because i never had problems with this. Thats how it works.

            I would love one too. It'd be great to free-up the front mounting post on my Micro.

              it is easy to get it in local electronics store or search at ebay for angle VGA adapter http://www.ebay.com/itm/Right-Angle-...IAAOSwEeFVFSJk . Ugreen anle HDMI adapters are also very easy to get in their official store at aliexpress. Bus shipping is very slow.
              I'm still not sure how to manufacture it in small quantity.

                Thanks for the info. Will check it out. For locking the HDMI, I use a locking HDMI cable from B&H, so a cable lock is not needed. When set in, this cable is hard to pull out, and will not come undone from the Micro camera on its own.
                Cheers

                  Seems i find a manufacturer who agree to made it in small quantity for reasonable price.
                  Testing anodizing and serial number extrusion . . .
                  BTW If someone plane to get this clamp very fast it will be way faster to seek for UGREEN angle HDMI adapters in local store right now or preorder from local ebay sellers or other local electronics stores. Same story with angle VGA adapter.
                  First batch will be qty. 20. It will be hand machined at factory at industrial grade milling-machines. Each sample will be extruded with serial number. Hope to see first machined samples this week.
                  Not sure about price yet but hope to keep it in range of other existing HDMI clamps. Also if someone plane use it in high budget cinema world or just want to support this project i will be grateful for additional donation during purchase.

                    The new design!
                    Each element now can be independently moved back and forth for precise position adjustment. In addition front element now protects angle HDMI adaptor from accidental impacts.
                    First test sample will be ready after weekend. Any feedback or suggestions?

                      Front element now changed for better airflow. This also allow to free few more threaded holes.
                      Two M4 grub screws added to Rear element for even better fixing of angle HDMI adapter.

                          And few real life samples shoot on crappy phone camera. Fits perfect, clamp has some space to move in both ways. HDMI adapter is fixed as a tank. Safest clamp ever made.

                            Cool. If you don't mind me asking what is your source for one-off small batch fabrication? Anytime I've looked into it the prices were astronomical.

                              I just lucky to find access to large industrial factory. Also it depends of factory placement. Manufacture prices may differ a lot from one country to another.
                              BTW if someone need any custom crafted stuff i probably can help with manufacture too. It can be done in smaller batch (up to 1pcs) too but in this case the price for unit will be much higher, but still less expensive than from small garage machines.

                              Retail price for this clamp will be $25 + shipping and funds transfer fees.
                              Worldwide shipping will be in small soft packages with tracking number so the shipping cost around Europe probably will be around $5. Shipping to US probably can be slightly more expensive but i need to check those things at the post office for sure. For request probably i can send package with faster but more expensive shipping methods.
                              Also if you plane to use this gear in high budget production and would like to support future development - feel free to make additional donations. I got some future planes to release quality inexpensive ergonomic Aaton-style BMMCC grip with REC/STOP button and few more useful accessories for BMMCC. All stuff will be in limited quantity and done for Micro cameras only.
                              For details send me a private message or contact directly to radioproektor(@)gmail.com

                              The package will include:
                              Front and rear part of HDMI clamp.
                              2pcs 1/4" button head screws.
                              2pcs M4 grub screws.
                              2mm allen wrench hex key.

                              Probably in future i'll add Ugreen angle HDMI adapter to the package but the price may rise to $30.

                              Currently you can order HDMI adapter separately from Ugreen ebay store:
                              http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ugreen-HDMI-...-/152084086682

                              Or from their AliExpress store:
                              https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Ugre...0-d4dc636a535a

                              Or just look for it in your local electronics store.
