After selling a lot of Vocas base plates and other accessories for the Sony PXW-FS7 Vocas is ready for the introduction of the Vocas accessories for the new Sony PXW-FS7 II !
If we have a close look at the new Sony PXW-FS7 II camera we see that the body of the camera hasn’t been changed a lot. Of course the camera itself has. Sony listened to the end-users of the PXW-FS7 and developed the PXW-FS7 II based on those reviews. The specs can be found on the Sony website.
The new Vocas gear for the Sony PXW-FS7 II is great! A closer look at the new base plate (0350-1700) learns that it has a new removable and adjustable shoulder pad. When removing the shoulder pad the way to mount the base plate directly to camera is free. This means the base plate is attached to the camera at 5 separate points, creating an extremely stable connection.
Also new are integrated rail holders at the front and the rear of the plate. At the back of the new base plate you'll find the toolless adjustable VCT-14 mushroom lock which makes play belong to the past.
For the top of the camera Vocas developed a new H-cheese plate (0350-1367) which includes the use of top rails! Now all common Vocas accessories such as a matte box can be mounted on the top rails. Using the Vocas Sliding System will be even easier this way!
In addition the new H-cheese plate can be used as an attachement point for the new PL support bracket (0900-0027). So the new Vocas PL support bracket can be attached to the front of the new H-cheese plate!*
For those who want to use very heavy lenses in combination with the Sony PXW-FS7 II camera Vocas advises to use our USBP-15 MKII base plate in combination with a specially developed camera adapter plate for the Sony PXW-FS7 II (0350-2255).
Combining these items the Sony PXW-FS7 / FS7 II can be a part of the Vocas Sliding System. A dedicated set (0350-2207) for the Sony PXW-FS7 / FS7 II is also available! The big benefit of using the Vocas Sliding System is the ability to transfer the camera from 15 mm, to 19 mm, to a drone or a tripod in seconds!
In summary we can state we have some exciting new products for the new Sony PXW-FS7 / FS7 II camera, with no less than three base plate options depending on your requirements.
All the previous developed Vocas accessories for the Sony PXW-FS7 can be used for the new Sony PXW-FS7 II excluding the adjustable handgrip bracket (0390-0090) and Viewfinder bracket for Sony PXW-FS7 (0700-0060 & 0700-0061).
* The new PL bracket can also be mounted on the former (and still available) H-cheese plate (0350-1365).
