Sony SMAD-P3 Multi-Interface Shoe Adapter-Cable Free Connection
The wireless receiver of the UWP-D Series can be attached to camcorders or interchangeable-lens cameras that have an MI (Multi-Interface) shoe using the MI shoe adaptor SMAD-P3. This eliminates the need for connecting cables. By using the MI shoe adaptor, audio signals can be transmitted from the wireless receiver to a camera. In addition, the wireless receiver can get power from the camera, and the camera can control power ON/OFF, unifying power management.
The SMAD-P3 is applicable to XDCAM Camcorder PXW-X180/ PXW-X160, interchangeable lens digital camera α7/ α7R/ α7S/ α99, Handycam / NEX-VG900/ NEX-VG30, and Cyber-shot DSC-RX10.
No need for separate XLR cable
Using an MI Shoe connection, the audio signal from a UWP-D11 or UWP-D12 wireless microphone package can be input from the wireless microphone receiver to the camera without an XLR cable.
Power can be supplied by camera
Power can be switched on and off from the camera/camcorder.
