Sony SMAD-P3D Dual channel Multi Interface Shoe (MI Shoe) adaptor for cable-free connection
The 2-channel wireless receiver URX-P03D can be attached to camcorders or interchangeable-lens cameras that have an MI (Multi-Interface) shoe using the 2-channel MI shoe adaptor SMAD-P3D. This eliminates the need for connecting cables. By using the MI shoe adaptor, audio signals can be transmitted from the wireless receiver to a camera. In addition, the wireless receiver can get power from the camera, and the camera can control power ON/OFF, unifying power management.
The SMAD-P3D is applicable to XDCAM Camcorder PXW-X70, PXW-X160, PXW-X180, PXW-X280, PXW-X200*, PXW-Z150**, PXW-FS7, PXW-FS5 and PXW-FS5K, NXCAM Camcorder HXR-NX100, HXR-MC2500, Handycam FDR-AX100 ***, NEX-VG900* ***, & NEX-VG30 ***, plus interchangeable lens digital camera a7* ***, a7R ***, a7S ***, a7 Mark? ***, a7R Mark? ***, a7S Mark? ***, a99 ***, a6000***, a6300 ***, and Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 ***, (as of April 2016).
* PXW-X200 firmware should be upgraded to Ver.2.00 or later for using SMAD-P3D.
** When using with PMW-Z150 operated by AC power, please set a battery on the camera. Without a battery, the power supply function and power ON/OFF control function will not be available. In that case, insert new AA alkaline batteries in the receiver and set the receiver’s power select (PWR SOURCE) menu item to BATT ONLY mode to avoid an unexpected shutdown of the camera or data loss.
