Why are some cameras not supported?

When the Unleashed doesn’t support some cameras it is not because we don’t want to – we would love to support all cameras. However, since we want the Unleashed to sit on the side of the camera, it needs to fit into the camera’s sockets. Even though we are able to build versions for multiple groups of cameras, some cameras have a socket arrangement that is unique so they would need a special version i.e. unique hardware.

For all Canon cameras, except the EOS R5 and R6, you’ll need a Mini-HMDI (HDMI Type C) extension. The Canon EOS R5 and R6 need a Micro HDMI (plug) to Mini HDMI (socket) adapter. Depending on your camera, you’ll need the following USB adapter cables:

  • Canon EOS R, RP, R5, R6: Micro USB socket to USB C plug
  • Canon 1DX: Micro USB socket to Mini USB plug
  • Canon 7D Mk II: Micro USB socket to Micro USB plug ( ie Micro USB extension)
  • Canon 90D: Micro USB socket to Micro USB plug ( ie Micro USB extension)
  • Canon 50D and 70D: Micro USB socket to Mini USB plug
  • Canon 250D: Micro USB socket to Micro USB plug ( ie Micro USB extension)
