The SmallHD Port Protector for Canon 5D Mark III provides both signal integrity and protection for your camera's Mini HDMI port and USB port. It is designed specifically to lock a SmallHD Mini HDMI cable in place and protect the HDMI port from damage caused from bumps and knocks on the connector, as well as hard cable tugs. It also keeps the cable from coming unplugged completely, keeping your monitor from losing signal during a shot. As an added benefit, it can also lock a USB cable in place. A Mini HDMI to HDMI cable comes included.

Featuring a low profile design and weighing less than an ounce, you'll hardly know the Port Protector is there. Using only one screw, the Port Protector enables a secure attachment to the body of the Canon 5D Mark III without blocking access to other ports ot interfering with tripod or hot shoe mount points. No additional hardware is required for installation.

Note: The Port Protector cannot be attached while using a battery grip.

Note: Do not attach the camera neck strap to the Port Protector.

    Port Protector for Canon 5D Mark III is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Option for My Purposes This port protector was about the best compromise for my purposes...shooting video with the 5DM3. The fragile HDMI port on the 5DM3 is one of the main issues with run and gun shooting with this particular camera. While, yes, you do have to remove the neck strap to attach this port protector, if you are shooting video with this camera from a shoulder rig, then it is a non-issue.Let's be honest. The small amount paid for this port protector fair outweighs the repair costs and down time of the camera if the fragile HDMI port is damaged. Why run the risk?One other issue...make sure to use SmallHD HDMI cables. I've had a few cables not work with this port protector because of the locking mechanism.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have! I've tweaked a ton of cables in the super fragile/exposed 5D mini HDMI port. Though replacing the cables is a cheap fix, chances are you're going to eventually break the port itself. THAT would be very expensive to service. This product gives me piece of mind. The only downside is that you have to sacrifice your camera strap (the device uses the camera strap connection to attach to your camera). I feel like it's worth it overall! (also, you get a free cable with the device, so that's pretty neat)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Already received through kickstarter It's very good but not perfect. I've yet to find an HDMI port lock that is. I don't like that I have to remove my Canon strap. Perhaps a clip-on strap. It does do a great job of protecting both your USB and HDMI ports of the 5Dmk3, but they really should have allowed for a battery grip. I shot a video review, you can search YouTube for Damian Dodd or google DSLR NERD.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic and Simple This unit of course is designed to protect your camera's HDMI port as well as the USB port. It does exactly that, and it does it well. The unit comes with an HDMI cable that is designed just perfectly for the units clip. Better to have this item on one's camera than to need to take the camera in for repairs when the port is damaged by accident.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as promised A bit overpriced hence the 4 stars but works as promised and was the only option I could find. Also considering the price to fix a malfunctioning USB or mini HDMI port it is a small price to pay. Easy to put on and easy to use. Highly recommend to any photographer who shoots tethered or video pros who need external monitors.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tired of your HDMI cable popping out?... It gives confidence that the mini-HDMI cable won't pop out. However, the guillotine device isn't universal for the diameter of all cables. Therefore, a little tricky to lock. It's seems very delicate and therefore difficult to detach. Overall it's a good product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from cable port protector I use the product with my Canon 5D M3 camera. The product is useful for securing mini HDMI cable end to Canon 5D M3 port. One down side is the protector only works with small HDMI mini end cables; my other HDMI mini cables do not fit with the lock.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great!! This port protector is a must for anyone monitoring out of the Canon 5D Mark iii. Since implementing this product, I have had no issue with the monitor cutting out during filming. Easy to mount and well made.
