I recently bought the FGM-EX1 Gold Mount to attach to my EX3 camcorder. I had to make up a bracket to fit it, and it worked great. The camera is now balanced over my shoulder the way it should be, and I can now make use of the D tap for lighting. It also allowed me to shoot all day and night on the one battery. The cable running into the camcorder could not be better, as it locks in. The power running from the battery to the camcorder is native. Meaning that the voltage is not 12V, it shows up on screen showing exactly how much charge is left in your battery just like full size cameras do. Because of the extra weight, the camcorder now operates much better on tripod. This is a must have peice to have.
