Introducing the Zacuto Pincher—Zacuto’s brand new solution to HDMI video cable support. Did you know that a video camera’s HDMI port can cost over $1000 to repair if it gets damaged? The Zacuto Pincher is a new product developed to help avoid damaging your HDMI cables or HDMI camera ports. The Pincher safely secures your HDMI cable to your DSLR camera, keeping it out of the way and protected from any potentially damaging obstacles in your surrounding environment. The Pincher also keeps your HDMI cable from coming unplugged and losing its signal on the EVF, an all too common problem with DSLR shooting today.
The Pincher was designed to easily attach to a Zacuto DSLR Baseplate or Gorilla Plate with two Allen screws. Once attached, the HDMI cable is held into place with a fully-adjustable rotating clamp or “dog.” Other HDMI cables may work with the Pincher, but we strongly recommend using the Zacuto HDMI Cable for optimal use. This device can be mounted on the new Zacuto EVF Gorilla Plate Bracket and will function with all leading DSLR cameras, including the Canon 5D, 7D, T2i, Nikon D7000, D5100, D3100, D3, Panasonic GH2 and many more.
