Vocas announced it has a package of support accessories for the newly shipping Panasonic AU-EVA1 camera.
Vocas announced the new H-cheese plate (0350-1335) that can be used in combination with the original top handgrip of the camera as well as the Vocas top handgrips. It provides the user many accessory attachment points on the top of the camera.
Also announced is the new handgrip rosette adapter (0390-0180), which makes the original Panasonic handgrip compatible with all standard rosette accessories. The extender cable (0390-0157) can be necessary when relocating the handgrip.
A viewfinder bracket for the new camera is meant to replace the original bracket. It uses a NATO rail system to connect the camera to the viewfinder and prevents the viewfinder from "twisting," which can result in a crooked horizon of the image. This kit includes a combination of a viewfinder bracket and single NATO rail with Sony/Panasonic 8T (110 mm).
The new MFC-3(F) follow focus system is unique because the focus knob and drive gear consist of only one part, so there is no transmission in the new MFC-3(F). The "F" in MFC-3F stands for adjustable friction. Rotating the red knob allows you to fine tune the internal friction of the MFC-3F to your own preference.
The new Vocas Pro rail support provides the Panasonic cameras with front and even rear rails at the same time. In combination with the new shoulder support (0370-0010) it transforms into a shoulder rig.
The possibility of placing the clamping block upside down, allows the rails to go across the top of the shoulder support. This allows users to add additional accessories such as a counter weight behind the shoulder support to get a more balanced setup.
