IBC 2018: Vocas Flexible Camera Rig and Director’s Monitor Cage

Popular pro camera accessories manufacturer Vocas came to IBC 2018, which is on their home turf, with their latest kit, some of which had already made an appearance at NAB 2018, but for some of us it was the first time we are seeing it exhibited at a major European trade show. Earlier in the year, Vocas also showed off their Sony VENICE accessories, which we wrote about in this post here, and their kit for the Panasonic AU-EVA1.

Vocas are known for their ergonomic handheld rigs (and their sweet wooden & leather handles), and have now redesigned the range of their shoulder rigs making for a totally multi-functional camera rig. The new flexible camera rig has been designed to support a wide range of cameras ranging from Panasonic GH5, or Sony A7 III compact S35 cameras like the Sony PXW-FS5/II and/or Canon C200/Panasonic EVA1.

There really is no limit to their Flexible Camera Rig, as it is so versatile, so as long as the camera will fit and it does not weigh a ton, you can configure their new Flexible Rig to your preference.

At their IBC 2018 stand, I caught up with my friend Lars from Vocas, who showed me their Flexible Camera Rig and also their new Director’s monitor cage with some accessories.

Their Director’s monitor cage is also adjustable to accommodate either 5-inch or 7-monitors and also has options for back plates for wireless transmitters and/or V-mount or AB power plates. There is an option to buy it with a mounting spigot accessory for a mounting to a light stand and/or with an optional sun hood. The basic kit for the Director’s monitor cage starts at €359, while the Pro Kit is priced at €640 exc. VAT.

The Flexible Rig is priced at €695, excluding the optional top handle. Best to check out Vocas’ website via the link below for the best configuration to suit your needs.

Both of these products are shipping now directly from Vocas or their authorised resellers around the world.
