New Vocas Spider System Camera Support

Vocas has announced their new Spider System; a versatile camera support system which is modular and adaptable depending on your filming needs.

Vocas has focused on a number of features in the Spider System to make it as flexible as possible for filming. The center piece of the system is a new camera base plate which sits in line with the shoulder support and extendable hand grip. It can connect up to four extendable arms for stable points of contact using the new rubbarized hand grip and shoulder brace, keeping the camera steady.


The base plate accessories also include a ‘Spider tube’ which is an additional base side for attaching a second extendable arm, and a tube for potentially mounting EVF’s or monitors.

The system is also tool-less, meaning it is flexible to change the arm positions or setup in the field, this has the advantage over rigs or supports that need keys or screwdrivers to adjust the setup. Including extendable arms is a thumbs up for multiple camera users, while running and gunning or using the cameras eyepiece.


The arm itself can rotate 360 degrees and includes a standard Rosette mount for adding other accessories or camera controls such.

lightweight and not that expensiv. Go with 15mm rails, handles for 100 Dollar. Or carve yourself a thing from wood… like Philip Bloom did.

Very similar to the Marauder from Zacuto. Only difference is that you can change the length of the arm, the other systems offers a better quick release setup.

I’m sorry… I watched all that for 795 euro??? $900 US. I just screamed out laughing… I’ve always wanted to get one of the Zacuto products that frankly look FAR stronger and offer both an eyepiece AND tripod mount option. FOR LESS. At least I think so?

I don’t feel comfortable putting thousands of dollars of camera/lens on that – maybe a Rebel or 70D/80D and if it were $250 tops.

Had the Zacuto Marauder for 2 shoots. After the 2nd shoot I gave up… these rigs can’t defy gravity, you WILL GET very tired quickly. In fact, in the images above you see the model with his elbow out – no good, most of the weigh is still supported by your shoulder/bicep muscles and it will become tiring quickly (I don’t care how much CrossFit you do, LOL). I ended up using a super simple and lightweight arm that allows me to have both shoulders pressed against my body, one of the levers against my chest for a stable 3 point contact system that can be used for hours on end. These rigs are more of a gimmick at these prices…

oops, i meant both elbows ;)

Do you have an image or an amazon link… to your setup. I`m interested.

Sure, here you go… can’t figure out how to post images here, but here are a couple of links on DPR where I’ve shared my setup in the past:

One of the things you’ll notice is that I use a tiny ball head from RRS on my rig which allows me complete freedom with leveling the camera – BIG DEAL for comfort and usability, this way I’m not locked into some crazy setup if I need to sit, stand, crouch, etc.

One other note, is that handle on the Zacuto’s Marauder has a ball joint and the grip is rubberized and rather comfortable. Having that ball joint is absolutely essential imho, for anyone using the rigs like this new one from Vocas because most of our bodies aren’t shaped with geometric 90 degree angles and having the ability to lock it in almost any position is key for wrist comfort. It’s obvious that the Vocas system is still a prototype with emphasis on small size and weight (Zacuto is a heavy piece in contrast), but at the price they quoted in the video it needs to be better, much better.
