Mod Light and Video Housing from LMI

Light and Motion have released a new compact video housing called the Stingray III for the latest Sony MiniDV cameras HC20, HC30 and HC40. Nearly half the size of the original Stingray the new super compact Stingray III offers all of the same features of the full size model.

Other good news is that the popular Mod Light is back and improved. The Sunray Mod is powered by a rechargeable, memory free, high capacity, lithium ion battery.
