Introducing the New Zacuto Pincher

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Sep 28, 2011) - A DSLR camera's HDMI port can cost over $1000 to repair if it gets damaged. That's almost as much as the cost of a camera itself. Thanks to the new Zacuto Pincher, an HDMI cable restraint, your camera's HDMI ports are now more protected than ever.

"This is one badass accessory that everyone should have in their kit," says Hollywood based cinematographer, Jared Abrams. "The days of dealing with HDMI cables becoming disconnected are over! Not sure how much this bad boy costs, but it is worth it."

The Pincher safely secures your HDMI cable to your DSLR camera, keeping it out of the way and protected from any potentially damaging obstacles in your surrounding environments. This device will function with all leading DSLR cameras, including the Canon 5D, 7D, T2i, Nikon D7000, D5100, D3100, D3, Panasonic GH2 and many more. The Pincher also keeps your HDMI cable from coming unplugged and losing its signal to the EVF, an all too common problem with DSLR shooting today.

The Pincher was designed to easily attach to a Zacuto DSLR Baseplate or Gorilla Plate. Once attached, the HDMI cable is held into place with a fully-adjustable rotating clamp. Other HDMI cables may work with the Pincher, but we strongly recommend using the Zacuto HDMI Cable for optimal use.

"The Zacuto Pincher solves one of the most obvious problems of using HDMI as a professional connector to a monitor," says Austrian Filmmaker, Nino Leitner. "It perfectly protects the tiny HDMI plug from breaking, which has happened to many people before, including myself. HDMI was never thought of as a professional connector, but Zacuto managed to make it pro with the Pincher, which is compatible with virtually any DSLR!"

The Zacuto Pincher retails for $130. Contact your local authorized Zacuto reseller or click here to order yours today.
