Optimizing the Sony PXW-FS7 with a new ENG-style build-up kit

Sony shows at NAB 2019 its solution to further optimize the popular PXW-FS7 and PXW-FS7M2 XDCAM camcorders for news gathering, through the use of a new ENG-style build-up kit and a new B4 lens to E-mount adapter.

The new build-up kit, CBK-FS7BK,  debuting at NAB 2019, enables extended shoulder mount usage, making the camcorders ideal for news production, interviews, documentaries and reality television shooting. Combined with a new lens mount adapter, the LA-EB1, not only E mount but also B4 lens assets can be used on an FS7 or FS7 II, allowing users to capture images with deep and shallow DoF – all with a single camera.

The CBK-FS7BK build-up kit includes: an extension unit with a wireless audio receiver slot and built-in network capability, providing advanced network operation for broadcast usage; a viewfinder and a cheese plate with enhanced robustness; and an adjustable shoulder plate designed to achieve optimal weight balance. Streaming and file transfers are possible via a wireless LAN or a 4G/LTE connection. QoS performance streaming is provided through the camcorder’s Dual Link connection, which enables the multiplexing of two cellular networks.

Hey, Typo in the first sentence, “camcorders for new gathering” . I believe that should be “news gathering”.

Also, please the the webmaster that there are other captcha systems that don’t involve Google tracking us.
