PROAT - bottom loading adapter for professional tripods

$ 49.99 - $ 53.99

This bottom loading adapter features an adapter mount bar and has a convenient thumbscrew for quickly removing the camera from the adapter for easy packing or run and gun shooting.

The accessory mount bar is a place to mount accessories with a 1/4”-20 type screw that would otherwise attach to the tripod mount point on the camcorder. Adapters known to be compatible with this mount bar are: Bescor VB-50, DM-Accessories SAB series mounts, Canon SA-1 universal shoe mount, Sony HVL-20DMA dual light, Sony HVL-IRM Night Shot Video Light and Sony VCT-S30L Cold Shoe Adapter.

The second picture shows the PROAT with an HC1 camcorder and a folding shoe adapter. The third picture shoes the PROAT with an HVR-A1 camcorder and complete audio and light rigging, as shown at the NAB 2006 expo. The fourth picture shows that the PROAT is a perfect match for Beachtek’s DXA-2S XLR adapter. The camcorder and other accessories are not included with the PROAT.
