Anton/Bauer Unveils QR-EX3 Gold Mount For Sony PMW-EX3 Camera At IBC 2008
Anton/Bauer, a brand of The Vitec Group, and the world’s premier provider of professional camera batteries, chargers, lighting and other mobile power systems, introduced its new QR-EX3 Gold Mount® for the Sony PMW-EX3 video camera at this year’s IBC 2008.
The QR-EX3 on-camera Gold Mount allows Sony’s PMW-EX3 model 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.
"Anton/Bauer continues its mission to provide reliable power supplies for the high-end video camera market," says Michael Accardi, president of Anton/Bauer. "The new QR-EX3 Gold Mount provides the critical interface between our battery products and Sony’s EX3 camera that is both ergonomic and flexible in its options."
For optimum results, the ideal package from Anton/Bauer includes the QR-EX3 Gold Mount, the Dionic 90 - 90Wh 14.4v Lithium Ion battery, the Tandem 70 Gold Mount 70 watt charger/power supply, and the UL2-20 Ultralight 2 camera mounted light with integral 20" PowerTap cable (optional). Note: Anton/Bauer recommends its QR-EX1 for use with Sony’s PMW-EX1 camera.
