New LockPort for Fujifilm XT3 Helps You Avoid an HDMI Crisis

LockPort for Fujifilm XT3
There is nothing more frustrating than fussing with an output when you want to be focused on what you're filming. 

HDMI ports are notoriously fragile. Though convenient, these delicate connectors are a weak point, even in controlled environments.

And mirrorless cameras are designed to be flexible and used anywhere. 

One mistakea yank on the cableand you not only have to divert your attention but if it causes damage, it could delay the shoot. Not to mention you'd be out a significant amount of money for repairs.

Supporting filmmakers for years with its products designed to take the hit for your camera, LockCircle has released the LockPort XT3, an HDMI port saver adapter clamp aimed at the Fujifilm X-T3 micro HDMI camera port.

It safely attaches to the bottom of the camera and secures a 90° rear micro HDMI to full-size HDMI adapter. It attaches in seconds, protecting the camera ports from damage. The full-size HDMI port allows you to use sturdier HDMI cables. Plus, the LockPort won't block your battery access, which is always a nice feature.

Tech Specs

  • 90° REAR output.
  • Gold plated contacts. CNC machined from billet aluminum, high-grade anodizing.
  • 4K tested.
  • Ultra-low camera baseplate, works on every plate, head, sliding plate, rig, support.
