Vocas Delivers for Panasonic AU-EVA1
ocas has new accessories ready to deliver for the
Panasonic AU-EVA1 camera.
Besides all the universal compatible accessories,
Vocas has dedicated items specifically designed for
the Panasonic AU-EVA1 ready to ship.
This new H-cheese plate is specifically designed
for the Panasonic AU-EVA1 and can be used in
combination with the original top handgrip of
the camera as well as the Vocas top handgrips. It
provides the user with many accessory attachment
points on the top of the camera.
Vocas also developed a handgrip rosette adapter
for the Panasonic AU-EVA1. This adapter makes the
original Panasonic handgrip compatible with all
standard rosette accessories. The extender cable can
be necessary when relocating the handgrip.
The viewfinder bracket kit for Panasonic AU-EVA1
is meant to replace the original viewfinder bracket of
this camera. This bracket 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 is a
combination of the following products: a viewfinder
bracket and single NATO rail with Sony/Panasonic 8T
The new MFC-3(F) follow focus system is also
compatible with the AU-EVA1 camera. This 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 is perfect for the
Panasonic AU-EVA1. This compact support provides
cameras with front and even rear rails at the same
time. In combination with the new shoulder support
it transforms in a perfect 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 you to add additional
accessories such as a counterweight behind the
shoulder support to get an even more balanced
setup. For exactly this purpose Vocas developed a
new 15mm counter weight of 1 kg.
The height of the Pro rail support can be adjusted
so it will be suitable for Panasonic AU-EVA1, and also
cameras such as Sony PXW-FS5 and Canon
EOS C200. www.vocas.com
