The CBK-55BK enables one-person operation of Sony’s PMW-F55 and PMW-F5 4K cameras, integrating a shoulder mount and easy-access camera controls critical to suit the fast paced shooting style required by teams with a limited crew and a lone camera operator.

Further developments to live over IP production
