Monoprice ALWAYS means "better-than-heavy-duty" QUALITY, and this adapter is no exception. Industrial-grade construction, superior components and flawless performance. You'll find so many applications for your video set-up, you'll buy multiples! Highly recommended!
I needed this to allow people having their pictures made see the still shot on a monitor. Worked fine converting the mini HDMI to the standard HDMI so I could plug in a regular cable. I now have several of them for spares.
This is indeed a male-mini HDMI to male standard HDMI adaptor. It does function in that role.
But it's not effective in what I needed: adapting the output port (mini-HDMI) on a video camera to a monitor (standard HDMI) because the strain on the cable from gravity pulled the adaptor loose from the camera. I ended up using gaffers tape to tie the cable to the control arm on the tripod head to keep it steady while the camera moved. I'm going to replace these with swivel adaptors (available elsewhere, not stocked @MP).
