Every videographer needs a complete collection of HDMI cables for all type of devices. Tether Tools recommends a collection of the HDMI (A-A), Mini-HDMI (A-C), Micro-HDMI (A-D) and the HDMI Swivel Adapter. With this collection of cables videographers are prepared to record with any device. With the included HDMI Swivel Adapter, one can mount a TV against a wall and no longer worry about the bend in the HDMI cable. The HDMI Swivel Adapter allows for a 90-degree connection removing that tension from both the port on your TV as well as your HDMI cable.
