Vocas to Introduce a Range of Camera Accessories at 2017 NAB Show

At the 2017 NAB show, Vocas will introduce a wide range of new accessories for specific brands and video cameras models.

Vocas will show upgraded matte boxes combined with the 15mm top bars which are a standard on the Vocas top handgrip. To these top bars, users can mount a top lens mount support which makes it easier when changing the camera set-up.

In addition, Vocas developed different accessories specifically for the Sony PXW-FS7 and FS7 II. These include base plates, a sliding system and viewfinder brackets. Each of the base plates have their own unique advantages, so users have to choose the right model to fit their requirements.

The Vocas Sliding System adds the ability to transfer the camera from 15mm to 19mm or to a drone or tripod in seconds. A standard body rosette can replace the original Sony body rosette so the original Sony handgrip extender can be rotated 360 degrees. This is especially useful when placing the camera in a camera case or setting it down on a table.

Viewfinder bracket kits replacing the original Sony viewfinder bracket with a Vocas NATO based viewfinder bracket ensures that the horizon stays level. Vocas said this is a must to operate the camera well.

Lens mount adapters from other brands than Vocas, such as Metabones, sometimes require a support in order to avoid strain on the lens mount of the camera. In these cases, the Vocas 15mm top lens mount adapter support can be used.

The Vocas top lens mount adapter support works with any lens mount adapter that has a ¼-inch connection underneath, and prevents damage to the lens mount of the camera, especially when using heavy lenses.
