HDMI to AV converter board

As title says, an useful device for the AP operators, not only for Sony NEX as advertised, but for any HDMI only output camera.

http://www.goodluckbuy.com/hdmi-to-a...5cm-cable.html

There are already such converters on ebay at about $35, but cased, not so light, and without cable or fitted with 1.5m 300 grams HDMI cables that are Hercules task to cut and resolder to make smaller and lighter.
This board has 25 grams only and is fitted with an appropriate 15cm HDMI cable, and more, one of the cable ends is 90 degrees, making very easy any version positioning of the board against the camera.

I think the setup was thought by a real AP/AV operator, I can't find any flaw.

10 month later edit: Forget the boards from this thread, the new kid on the block is here:

Use this thread only if you have older boards and have questions.

On another forum was posted this cable, longer, but still manageable. And right angle, and cheap...

If using the appropriate plug...
I am not aware about many types of HDMI, so one should fits all.

yes, this camera uses the same cable as the nex5 (HDMI type C). So this converter dosent need power supply, it receives power from the camera thru the hdmi cable? I was wandering how to conect this adapter to the FPV Tx, just sold the Video cable to the Tx.

It is powered by the servo lead (see picture in OP link) using 5V from receiver, no voltage on HDMI.

ohh ok great, and the cable that is included in the converter (the red one, not the servo cable) is for the "coverter to TX" or for the "camera to coverter"

thanks!

The red cable is camera to converter.
Possible the servo lead contains the video for VTx too.
