Hess Goes All Norbert Sport for Extreme Shooting
“Norbert Sport is perfect for the smaller cameras like the Canon 5D and 7D as well as the Nikon equivalent. I put it to the test immediately, using my Canon 5D Mark II to shoot the skateboarding and snowboarding action at the Ultimate Boarder competition at Mammoth Mountain. I added a microphone and a monitor onto the frame, and instead of hanging onto the camera and getting ‘jiggle video’, the kind you get seasick watching, I was able to get extremely stable and exciting shots. I could even dip down into the bowl as the boarders hit the low point in their ride, and keep a greater balance than with any other camera stabilizing system out there.
The multi-award winning patent pending K-Tek’s Norbert Sport is a unique camera mounting system that features height adjustable carbon fiber side handles with foam covers, a top plate made of anodized aluminum with numerous shoe mounts, as well as 1/4 x 20 and 3/8 x 16 threaded holes. Its lightweight base frame can be used to mount everything from external viewfinders and monitors to strobes/flashes, audio/video recorders, microphones and more. The versatile Norbert system has mounting options for both tripod and handheld use, making it a rock-solid foundation for the latest generation of video-capable DSLRs and compact high-definition cameras.
