How to connect the Sony Nex5n to a Immersion transmitter

As the the headline says, I want to connect my Sony Nex5n to my Immersion transmitter so I can send the videosignal to the fatshark googles. How do I do that?

you use a HDMI to Composite converter.

this one is about $99 off ebay and then you strip it, solder some wires to it....

or use a FPV CCD camera mounted on the camera to frame with


lots of threads here and at APLanding about it....

Exactly the same product, Ģ35 delivered:

I've just received mine and it works perfectly. I'm now in the process of stripping it down

Wow that is a thin cable!

I bought two of these and stripped one down last night to see how light I could make it.

http://www.cinegearpro.com/hdmi-cabl...dmi-cable.html

Unfortunately when I was designing my camera mount I hadn't considered how large the mini HDMI connector would be (at that point I was still planning on using a separate FPV camera), so I was also trying to see how tightly I could bend the cable as it comes out of the mini HDMI connector. Despite my best efforts I couldn't get the radius small enough so I've had to re-think my camera tray design ...

By stripping the insulation off the cable and the thick plastic housing off the plugs, I still managed to halve the cable's weight from 18g to 9g which isn't too bad. The wires are all potted in some kind of silicon so it's still waterproof / dustproof with the plastic plug housings removed ...

I want to know where DJI got their right-angle mini HDMI ribbon cable from ... look around 2m40s:

DJI Spreading Wings S800 English closeup demo/interview (GPS stabilization) (6 min 42 sec)


That might even work with my current camera tray, but after searching for many hours the best I could find was the CineGearPro cable I linked to above ... oh well, c'est la via

Cheers

Fast question. I see that there is 1000 models of this "HDMI to Composite" and with a lot of difference in prices. What are the differences? Weight? Delay?

I'm asking because I'm in Brazil and I don't have many options here, so if I buy it here I want to know what to expect.
