Broadcast Asia 2013: Zacuto FS700 grip relocator

Broadcast Asia 2013: Zacuto Sony FS700 grip relocator from Dan Chung on Vimeo.

Zacuto have been very busy lately making bits for all the latest cameras, many of which were on show at the Cathay Photo booth at Broadcast Asia 2013. They now offer grip relocators for Sony FS700 and FS100 camcorder, as well as the Canon C100/C300/C500. These move the manufacturer’s original handgrip from the side of the camera to a more comfortable position on your rig. We’ve previously seen the Canon version but the Sony FS700 one is a little cooler. It allows servo zoom control with the grip’s rocker when you use Sony’s 18-200 servo zoom lens. In this configuration the FS700 is probably the closest you can get to a large sensor ENG camera without laying out serious cash for something like the Fujinon Cabrio zoom lens.
