Famous Dutch gear company Vocas also presented a few new products at NAB this year. Bas Ladru’s mother language might not be English, but rig making surely is, as past experience shows: Their handheld DSLR rig, won our editors choice award last year when we tested several handheld rigs.
Bas showed me a very simple lens support unit that could come in very handy if you’re working with longer lenses. It comes with the great Vocas snap-on handle that sits on one side only.
The new rail support works for the Sony F3 and Panasonic AF100 cameras and allows for a quick switch between 15mm and 19mm rods.
The Vocas gear is extremely solid, durable and lightweight, but comes at a price. While the announced products are not yet available, the full DSLR handheld rig costs about $2100.
Bas also mentioned that their modules are designed with versatility in mind and 80% of the dslr gear can be used with other cameras as well.
We have talked about the Vocas gear here and here and here.
Their DSLR rigs are available in the US: here
Or through other retailers listed on their website for the rest of the world.
