The HDLA-1500 allows operation of the HDC-1500 HD portable camera or HDC-3300 SuperMotion camera together with large studio/OB lenses and 7" viewfinders. Unlike traditional lens "build-up kits", the HDLA-1500 provides a very simple one-touch cable-free mounting of the camera so that it can be quickly and easily converted from hand-held to tripod configuration.
The HDLA-1500 is finished in a pale grey body colour, the same as the HDC-1000 studio camera. If required, a dark coloured version, HDLA-1500/B is also available.
The camera can be fitted quickly and easily into the adaptor. This unique mechanism allows the HDC-1500 to be attached and detached without removing the large lens.
To provide efficient operation in studio or OB environments, the large lens adaptor has a unique design which allows the camera to be converted from hand-held to large lens configuration in just a few seconds.
Utilizing a newly developed interlocking mechanism, power, video, and control signals are passed on directly from the HDC-1500 to the HDLA-1500, without requiring additional cable connections
Utility power (200-240V AC) is available from the large lens adaptor, when used in conjunction with the HDCU-1000 camera control unit
All the control features and functionality traditionally associated with full size cameras are provided in this efficient operational package. The HDLA-1500 also has a viewfinder position which is notably lower than the comparable models. This low-profile design significantly improves the operator's view, as well as minimizes the parallax between the optical axis of the camera head and viewfinder.
