View Full Version : pivoted HDMI plug?

The HDMI cable provided with my Z-Finder EVF Pro has a pivoted plug at one end, which makes the connection with a camera or nanoFlash recorder more flexible, and thus safer. But the other end is a regular stiff plug… Now, if you care to take a look at the pictures attached, you will see what I mean: the HDMI-in socket being at the camera side of the EVF unit, it makes it very difficult to position the EVF close enough to the camera, and not stress the plug!

My question is: do HDMI cables with the plug pivoted in the other axis exists, and if so, how can I source one?


PS. Sorry for the quality of the pictures :)

I've only seen these dual pivoting HDMI cables on ebay

thought about getting one, but I got a right angle HMDI adapter instead
