HILVERSUM, The Netherlands—Vocas Systems, European manufacturer of innovative, professional-calibre camera accessories, today announces several new products developed expressly for Canon’s ECS C200 digital cinema camera. They include a C200 viewfinder bracket, a top cheese plate, a camera adapter plate for the Vocas Sliding System, a special C200 cage and a handgrip relocator.

Introduced by Canon in June, the EOS C200 has become a popular option among camera professionals seeking to capture 4K video, and the new Vocas accessories make it easier to use and more stable in a variety of production applications. “Our new C200 accessories address some of the limitations of the standard accessories and make using the camera a little easier,” said.  Vocas Manager of Business Development Lars Verlinden. “We believe they will become must-have tools for committed C200 users.”

The new Viewfinder Bracket represents a complete C200 viewfinder solution. Based on NATO rail, the bracket overcomes the limitation of the standard Canon viewfinder bracket, which is not adjustable in a forward or backward direction as required when using the camera on the shoulder. The 15mm viewfinder adapter fits the original C200 top handle directly, and provides a 15mm horizontal rod to mount any NATO accessory. The result is a rigid and stable mounting solution for the C200 LCD that prevents the LCD from twisting, which can result in a crooked image horizon. An adjustable friction mechanism is integrated to tilt the LCD up and down.

The Top Cheese Plate features integrated holes for 15mm rails and allows the mounting of either the original C200 handgrip or the new Vocas top handgrip low. A top handgrip kit for the Canon EOS C200 including the top cheese plate, top handgrip low and viewfinder adapter is also available.

The new, dedicated C200 Camera Adaptor Plate includes four attachment points for greater camera stability and makes it possible to use the camera in tandem with the Vocas Sliding System.  It makes the C200 compatible with 15mm and 19mm setups, drones and gimbals.

The new, lightweight C200 Cage provides added steadiness and stability with heavy set-ups. The Cage connects to the Vocas Top Cheese Plate and the Vocas Adaptor Plate on both sides of the camera. On the operator side, a standard rosette is integrated into the Cage.

The Handgrip Relocator allows the C200 handgrip to be relocated to accommodate shooting from the shoulder. While the original C200 handgrip is fitted with a standard rosette, the Vocas handgrip extenders allows the handgrip to be positioned in any place the operator chooses.

The new Vocas accessories for the Canon EOS C200 camera are available now. Vocas will show the new C200 accessories at the IBC show in Amsterdam, 15 – 19 September, Stand 12.D56.
