16x9 Inc. Introduces Bebob Box-HVR for Sony HVR-DR60
Posted Aug 17, 2007

16x9 Inc. has introduce Box-HVR from Bebob Engineering, an ingenious new mounting system for adding Sony’s HVR-DR60 portable hard disk recorder. Developed specifically to complement popular Sony camcorders like the HVR-V1U and HDR-FX7, HVR-Z1U and HDR-FX1, and DSR PD150/170, this compact, lightweight cage-style carrier attaches unobtrusively underneath the camera between the baseplate and tripod plate. The system’s smooth-glide drawer is tailored to cradle the HVR-DR60 and hold it firmly in place. Fully extended, it provides fast and easy access to the recorder’s display screen and controls. A convenient quick-lock mechanism anchors the drawer open. When not in use, the drawer simply slides back inside the carrier and automatically locks in position. In addition, the Box-HVR drawer provides space for mounting the camera’s NPF battery, just behind the hard drive recorder. A 7.2V outlet is supplied for use with an external power supply.

To add a mattebox for shading and light control – or Bebob’s Foxi remote focus/iris control – a new Box-15 option is also available, which enables mounting of standard 15mm support rods to the front of any Bebob Box carrier. A conveniently located central thumbscrew allows for quick and easy horizontal/vertical adjustment of the rods to accommodate different camera models. The Box VCT-14 option can be added to allow use of a Sony VCT-14 or Panasonic SHANTM700 tripod adaptor plate, for quick switching between the DV camcorder and a shoulder-held camera.
