Toronto, Ontario November 21, 2008. VFGadgets is pleased to launch the: “EX3 Heavy Duty Base Plate System” from PCI Canada. The EX3 Heavy Duty Base Plate System makes a rock-solid connection between your fluid head and the Sony EX3 camera base. Designed to be a professional replacement to the threaded 1/4-20 stock mount, this solid plate fastens to the base of the camera at 3 points. With the heavy duty base plate you can use a v-wedge toe piece for the Sony VCT-24 and VCT-U14, or any quick release camera plate with 1/4″-20 or 3/8″ threads to mount the camera solidly to a fluid head.
The accessory Back Plate of the EX3 Heavy Duty Base Plate System acts as a solid mounting point for larger popular battery packs and other accessories. This configuration also improves shoulder balance, providing more comfort for the handheld camera operator.
The EX3 Heavy Duty Base Plate System was developed for rental house use to handle every day abuse in the field. It’s machined from solid aircraft aluminum and anodized with a protective black finish.
The 15mm rod adaptor accessory (60mm spacing) for matte boxes, and lens support bracket for heavier lenses are also available to add more flexibility to your EX3 camera.
