16x9 unveils Bebob Box-FS
16x9 has introduced the Bebob Box-FS mounting system for adding a FireStore FS-4 or FS-100 to the Panasonic HVX-200 and other HDV/DV camcorders.
Previously, FireStore portable HD recorders had to be attached directly to the camera or clipped to an operator's belt. Bebob's new system provides a smart way to fit the FireStore under the camera, keeping it close for handheld or tripod use. The Box-FS sits securely and unobtrusively underneath, with no obstruction to the camcorder.
Combining an outer shell of heavy gauge black anodized aluminum with components made of shock-resistant polymer, the lightweight, rugged Bebob Box-FS functions as a cage-style carrier. Attaching between the camera baseplate and the tripod plate, the Box-FS holds and protects the HD recorder. It also securely reinforces the underside of the camcorder itself.
