K-Tek, a producer of audio and video equipment, unveils the Norbert Sport, a versatile camera mount that is designed for handheld shooting, the company says in a written statement.
The Norbert Sport provides digital single lens reflex (DSLR) and small-format high-definition video cameras with hand use and accessory mounting options, K-Tek says.
The camera mount 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, allows for more comprehensive setups because of its near-limitless combination of shoe mounts and threaded adapters.
