Anton/Bauer unveils new mount for Sony EX3 camcorder
Anton/Bauer showed its new QR-EX3 gold mount for the Sony PMW-EX3 video camera at NAB2009.
The new camera mount allows Sony’s PMW-EX3 camcorder to work with Anton/Bauer’s Dionic 90 or Hytron 50 batteries, extending the camera’s run times and improving balance.
In addition, the QR-EX3 comes standard with an Anton/Bauer PowerTap connector, which allows the powering of an on-camera light, wireless receiver or any other 12V accessory. The Dionic 90 battery provides up to 6.5 hours of run time while the Hytron 50 battery offers up to 3.5 hours.
For optimum results, the company recommends a package that includes the QR-EX3 gold mount, the Dionic 90 90Wh 14.4V Li-Ion battery, the Tandem 70 gold mount 70W charger/power supply and the UL2-20 Ultralight 2 camera-mounted light with integral 20in PowerTap cable (optional). Anton/Bauer recommends its QR-EX1 for use with Sony’s PMW-EX1 camera.
