Protective bracket for Micro HDMI and microphone cables
2

I use an Olympus E-M5iii body with an L bracket/grip for video on a tripod.  I also use an external monitor and a tripod in the field.  This arrangement is fragile in many ways, but the one I have always been concerned about it the HDMI connection at the camera body.  I modified a small angle bracket from the local hardware store to cover the connection and to provide a way to tie wrap a short micro HDMI to standard HDMI cable to minimize chances of damaging the camera if and when the cable is jerked.  The bracket also covers an angled mic cable to minimize chances of pulling it out accidentally.

The craftsmanship here is not pretty, I did the best I could with what I had.  But the brackets are functional.  At a minimum, perhaps it will give others an idea for their own simple bracket design.
