Vocas at NAB 2018 in Las Vegas
NAB 2018 What’s new?
Vocas is ready for some interesting introductions at this year’s NAB in Las Vegas!
Working in the professional camera market and following this market very closely, we at Vocas develop accessories for the latest cameras and film & video trends. During development we also try to never lose sight of improving the life of the cameraman at work. We have some nice introductions for the run and gun cameraman and even the professional vlogger.
At the Vocas booth you can find our latest products which are ready to ship such as specific accessories for the latest cameras like Sony VENICE, Panasonic AU-EVA 1 and more. In addition, we showcase the latest Vocas follow focus, a matte box support with shoulder pad and a renewed design of the Vocas director's cage!
Vocas latest development, a completely new shoulder rig, will be shown for the first time! You can try it yourself! Other new items at the Vocas booth are a new soft interchangeable shoulder pad for the Vocas Sliding System and a “belly pad” which can be used on all 15 mm supports making life a little more comfortable!
For all Vocas customers the new Vocas webshop will be available at the Vocas booth!
So, visiting the Vocas booth C8238 is a necessity!
Vocas new very flexible camera rig!
After many years Vocas redesigned the range of shoulder rigs. The result is a multifunctional camera rig! The new camera rig will function with all kind of cameras ranging from a Canon EOS 5D, Panasonic AG-UX180 to the Sony PXW-FS5! One for all! All for this one? We hope so!
The shoulder rig is designed in a way that cameras can be operated on top of your shoulder and in an offset position. This flexibility offers shooting options for using both the camera’s external viewfinders and LCD screens. The rig has a 15 mm height adjustable rails support which enables compatibility with almost any camera. The ARCA sliding system offers quickly adjustable balancing options.
The optional top handle enables you to mount any third party VF or LCD screen via the Vocas NATO rail solutions. To the back of the rig, a counterweight or battery can be mounted. Available in kits with or without tophandle, viewfinder bracket, handgrips, counterweight etc.
All with maximum stability in mind for the best steady shot you have ever made without a complex stabilizing system.
The new Vocas director's cage
A light weight one-piece director's cage is new in the market. Vocas listened closely and the result can be tested at the Vocas booth C8238.
The Vocas director's cage comes with leather handgrips and a lot of 1/4” and 3/8” mounting points! Optional accessories are a battery or video receiver plate, tripod plate for light stands and wedge plate for tripods (0400-0001) and an adjustable sunshade.
Monitors up to 7” will fit the Vocas director's cage, of any brand. The leather handgrips provide the director’s cage with a stable base when placed on a table or desk. On both sides of the director’s cage treaded holes are available to mount strap pins (0350-1470) for the use of a carrying strap (0850-0010).
The new Vocas ‘Belly’ support
Simple but so nice to have! The new Vocas 15 mm rubber belly support can be used on any standard 15 mm rails. You can just put this support at the rear or even at the front end of your rig. At the front end it can function as a palm support. At the rear it protects your body from the 15 mm rails when shooting from a hip position or any other position. Perfect for run and gun shooting!
New shoulder pad for USBP MKII base plates
The Vocas base plates of the Vocas Sliding System and in particular the USBP-15 MKII (0350-2200) base plate is very popular! Even the specials built for the Sony PXW-FS7II (0350-2207), Canon EOS C200 (0350-2202) and ARRI Alexa Mini (0350-2201) are big hits!
Improvements? A new softer shoulder pad for the USBP MKII base plates! Some cameramen, using our USBP MKII base plates in combination with heavy lenses and extra battery packs, feel the pressure on their shoulders. Vocas developed a softer shoulder pad especially for you. Come and try it yourself!
