Sony SMAD-P3 overview

  • 1Description

The SMAD-P3 Multi-Interface Shoe Adapter by Sony is for connecting the UWP-D series wireless receiver directly to a camera. It can be used to eliminate the need for connecting cables in applications using Sony cameras and camcorders. Using a multi-interface shoe connection eliminates the need for an XLR output cable. Power can also be supplied by the camera, and the camera can control power on/off, unifying power management.

The SMAD-P3 is applicable to XDCAM Camcorders PXW-X70, PXW-X160, PXW-X180, PXW-X280, PXW-X200 and PXW-FS7, Handycam HXR-MC2500, FDR-AX100, NEX-VG900 & NEX-VG30, plus interchangeable lens digital cameras Alpha a7, a7R, a7S, a99, a7S pro, and Cyber-shot DSC-RX10.

    Sony SMAD-P3 reviews

    SMAD-P3 Multi-Interface Shoe Adapter for Cable-Free Connection is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product failed to function I purchased this at the NYC superstore and used it in subsequent shoots. It failed within 6 weeks. I take very good care of my gear, this thing is a plastic piece of junk. List of problems- 1) Screw tightener failed - fully tightened and the entire adapter will still move while in the hotshoe. 2) Loss of tension - the mini USB port failed to retain plug tension - the wireless receiver would come unplugged simply by tilting the camera forward and applying light pressure. 3) Compromising audio quality - produced bad audio on set, had to figure out what was causing it and narrowed it down to this junky thing. In the future I will not be buying new plastic items from Sony.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Forced Auto Gain Control Sometimes I don't understand Sony's thinking. I bought this to simplify shooting with my A7RII (second camera) with my Sony UDP11 wireless lav. Seems perfect for Run n Gun interviews. However, you lose audio level control on the camera. The option in menu becomes greyed out. So now your audio is using some form of AGC. The only thing you can do is alter the output of the receiver. ( +/- 12dB) This still doesn't change the nature of what AGC does to your audio signal though. I don't understand why they would do this. The camera has audio level control, so why circumvent it? The only work around is to plug the output cable into the camera. However if you do this while it's attached to the introduces noise to the audio signal. SIGH So if you want manual control of your audio, on a 7 series camera at least, stay away from this unit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Plastic shoe can break easily This is a great little connector. I used on FS7, but it broke easily when I left it on top of the camera with the microphone receiver while carrying from one location to another. Obviously, you wouldn't travel the camera with the shoe still on top, but it did crack at the shoe base easier than one might think. The electronics still work, but is balancing precariously on the broken plastic. I'm buying a replacement and being more careful with the new one.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Reliable, compact but limiting for audio MI Shoe interface can be a very convenient thing IF you're running a very compact, simple rig. Great for using one lav mic, but if you need a lav and a boom, or multiple lavs, then this adapter is sort of a dead end. I bought it to use with a Sony PXW-X70, only to realize that the MI shoe was underneath the removable handle. So I had to give up the pro-audio xlr inputs for just one MI audio input. Sony seems to create these sort of functional cul-de-sacs in their equipment, I don't know why. But, it works fine for what it offers, just think about whether you're going to wish you had more audio options.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works...but BE CAREFUL. This product works, and is definitely convenient for adding Sony's wireless pack to the FS7. BUT...If you use this with the GPS active on the camera, it creates a pulsing sound that ends up being recorded to your audio. Turn off GPS to avoid this!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As advertised but very unwieldy This does its job, but I imagine purchasing it to remove the hassle of having an XLR cable to attach to my FS5. However, I am now left to wonder if I am just creating another hassle by having to find a way to protect this flimsy item. It doesn't have a shape that readily fits in small cutouts for travel and is too awkward if left on the camera .. would break off for sure. Technically, the sound does not seem to lose anything compared to standard XLR input

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would not buy this again. I was looking forward to pairing this with Sony's UTX-P03 wireless receiver and my fs7 for totally wireless operation. Sadly, it doesn't deliver on its promise. I found it to be unacceptably noisy.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Noise with the Sony FS7 I wanted to love this, I really did, until it became obvious there is a MUCH higher noise floor when using this instead of using an XLR input into my FS7. I even sent two receiver units back to Sony, and they couldn't find the noise floor in their did Sony *really* test these on an FS7? No, I don't think so. So, while great in idea, something is wrong with these on a Sony FS7.
