SmallHD launches its highly anticipated $49 Canon 5D Mark II Port Protector designed to protect the popular DSLR camera from damage to its mini-HDMI port, saving users over $1000 in potential repair fees. Additionally, it keeps the connector from becoming unplugged—an easy mistake which causes the camera to automatically stop recording, ruining a shot.
Its true capability is captured in a video demonstration featuring various real-world stress tests including a 2ft drop from only the mini-HDMI cable.
“Unlike most products, it flawlessly performs both critical tasks for the 5D—port protection and port locking,” says Weston Phillips, SmallHD’s CEO. “And at only $49, it’s less than half the cost of any other solution. It is the best value for money on the market by a long shot—it even comes with a mini-HDMI cable.”
The Canon 5D Mark II Port Protector provides extreme protection and durability without adding significant weight (only 1 oz.). No tools are required for installation, which can be performed in just a few seconds. Its sleek design leaves the Mark II’s tripod mounting thread untouched and keeps all Canon 5D Mark II branding intact, seamlessly blending in with the camera.
“It may seem we’re a little late to the game with our camera choice, but we started with the 5D Mark II because there are still hundreds of thousands of them out there,” comments Phillips. “That said, we’re currently taking suggestions from our website visitors on which camera we should base our next Port Protector around.”
Founded in 2009, SmallHD has made its name as the leading innovator of on-camera monitoring solutions for the professional cinematographer, videographer and photographer. More information about SmallHD and the Canon 5D Mark II Port Protector can be found at SmallHD.com
