Hot/cold shoe requirements (Blender + EX3)

This is a question I really should already know the answer to...

I have a Sony EX3 and am considering the purchase of a Lowel Blender.

To attach this to the camera's accessory shoe, will I need to get one of these?

WindTech CM-57 Hot Shoe Adapter (Brass) CM-57 - B&H Photo Video

I'm not sure if this is the right size, etc - seems pretty simple, but I don't know what I need....

Thanks!

From the Lowel website, on the Blender page (lowel.com/blender), under the link "Uses These Stands & Mounts" -

To use the 1/4-20 hole on top of the camera, and for the lowest mounting, replace the stand adaptor with Low-link (code ViP-37)

The Cam-link and Stud-link (Code: ViP-41S) uses the light's stand adaptor for a little height to get over a long lens or matte box, and for easy transfers to and from light stands.

The Low-link with a Cam- link (Code: ViP-41L ) allows a lower mount utilizing the accessory shoe.
