Vocas Introduces New Camera Accessories at IBC 2017

At IBC, Vocas unveiled camera accessories for new model high-end cinema cameras from Sony, Panasonic and Canon.

Vocas said its Pro rail support 15 mm type P allows the height to be adjusted so it will be suitable for cameras such as Sony PXW-FS5, Panasonic AU-EVA1 and Canon EOS C200.

For the Panasonic model, Vocas announced a new follow focus system, the MFC-3, the new top hand grip Pro, a modular system with many possibilities and a new base plate suitable for compact and medium cameras.

For the Canon EOS C200, Vocas is providing a C200 viewfinder solution based on NATO rail which will replace the original Canon viewfinder bracket. The 15 mm viewfinder adapter, which fits the original C200 top handle directly, provides a 15 mm horizontal rod to mount any NATO accessory.

The Vocas viewfinder bracket which provides a rigid and stable mounting solution for the C200 LCD prevents the LCD from twisting. Twisting of the LCD can result in a crooked horizon of the image. An adjustable friction mechanism is integrated to tilt the LCD up and down.



For the smaller camera bodies, Vocas has developed the new follow focus MFC-3. Because the focus knob and drive gear consist of only one part, there is no transmission in the new MFC-3. This is a direct drive, and because of the elimination of internal gears, there can never be any difference in the motion going in and going out, making it 100-percent playless. 



Vocas’ Handgrip Pro is designed for people who like to have a closed handle so that a sense of extra security and safety is achieved, especially when using a heavy set-up. In addition to the added security and safety, the handle has many mounting options for ¼-inch and cold-shoe accessories.

The core of the system is the closed handle itself. There is a choice when mounting on smaller cameras.
