World Premier of Norbert Sport Camera/Accessory Mount
By Dorian Gentry | April 22, 2011
K-Tek expands its Norbert line of camera support products with the introduction of the Norbert Sport. Perfect for filmmakers wanting a solid, versatile camera mount for handheld shooting, Norbert Sport provides DSLR and small-format high-definition video cameras with comfortable hand-holding and accessory mounting options.
The Norbert Sport uses two, lightweight, foam-covered carbon-fiber hand grips and aluminum top and bottom mounting plates to securely mount select production accessories such as digital recorders, microphone mounts, or small LED lights. Weighing roughly 1.5 pounds, the carbon fiber side handles have comfortable and grippy foam covers. Handles have adjustable height and use a secure collar/collet system. The top bar offers nine shoe mounts, six 3/8 x 16 threaded mounts, and five 1/4 x 20 mounts. The bottom bar comes with a quick release/tripod mount and can use standard 15mm rods with K-Tek's iris rod adapter.
Norbert Sport adds to the successful Norbert line of camera supports. The original Norbert frame, which is also available is perfect for more comprehensive setups because of its near-limitless combination of shoe mounts and threaded adapters.
Suggested list price is $285.00. For further information, contact: K-Tek, 1384-F Poinsettia Ave., Vista, CA 92081; Ph. 760-727-0593; Fax 760-727-0693; www.ktekbooms.com
