Video industry technology has radically changed over the past few years, introducing even lighter and more compact cameras. The latest cameras have created a new way of filming, where one person is often able to do the job on their own while a few years ago a full crew was required.

The ergonomic and technical characteristics make these systems the perfect support for the “new” video industry.
