Looking for some advice about Sony MPK DVF5M housing...

Recommended Posts

Hi gang,

 

Looking for some advice about Sony video housings

 

I own a Sony MPK DVF5M housing. Its a grand old beast, rated to 75m, with a built in monitor in the rear half of the case. This monitor is plugged into TRV style camcoders with a 3.5mm 4 pole jack.

 

I want to try out the possibility of HDV, and have settled on an HVR A1E since it has the requisite LANC and plug in mike sockets, and its the right size to fit in the housing. The problem is the video output socket, which is no longer 3.5mm 4 pole but is instead, it seems, Sony's own proprietary socket.

 

I am wondering if anyone knows if there is a workaround for this. Can I rewire the monitor jack, or is there a cable available (that would be the Sony Component video jack at one end, with a female 4 pole 3.5mm socket on the other?

 

Many thanks for any advice

 

Dave

Yes there is a solution for this, are you handy with a soldring iron?

I'm not - but I found a man who was!

 

I'm all sorted now with a small adapter cable with 3xRCA sockets on one end and a 3.5mm 4 pole jack socket on the other, working fine, HD video here I come!
