The Sony Multiport Connector, also called the
Multi Terminal Connector, has a soldering tab for access to all 15 pins.
There is a pinout for the Sony Multiport connector below.
The Sony Multiport connection is also called the Multi/Micro USB Terminal or the Sony Multi Terminal and is found on newer Camcorders, Cybershot Cameras and Sony DSLR and AX series of cameras.
The Sony Multiport Connector is great for DIY projects for your Sony Camera or Camcorder.
You will need a very fine point soldering tip and start with low heat levels. The circuit board is 5/16" wide, which is approximately the width of the Sony Multiport Connector. All of the pins are labeled making it easy to select which pin you want to connect too. Please see the photos below.
The Sony Multiport Connector are sold by the individual piece.
Please understand, there is NO refunds or exchanges once you have soldered the connector.

You can NOT control the camera with a wired remoted control while providing video/audio output using the Multi USB terminal. You have to use the HDMI output when you are connected to a wired remote control. This is just the way Sony has designed the multiport or multi terminal to work.
