NAB Report


Well, NAB 2011 has come and gone and the show was, as always, a whirlwind of activity and interesting news. We had many happy iDC customers pop in for a visit and made lots of new friends. I spoke in the Canon booth to Standing Room Only crowds. All-in- all a great show.

Ace French Director and European Champion of all Things iDC, Sébastien Devaud, joined us for a fine sushi dinner on Sunday evening then stopped by the booth to make a nice little video report on the action.

In Production: Full iDC Support of the Panasonic GH2

After a seemingly-endless struggle to acquire a fitment sample, we are now in production of a custom-tailored camera plate for the very popular Panasonic GH2. This modular billet-aluminum camera plate will work with both the ultra-compact iDC SYSTEM ZERO and the Big Boy Pants iDC SYSTEM ONE. No pictures to share at this time but we are cranking as fast as we can. This neat little package will be well worth the wait for GH2 filmmakers of all levels...

Introducing SYSTEM ONE for the Panasonic AG-AF100


Check out the ultra-sexy, affordable, versatile, and totally New Skool SYSTEM ONE for the Panasonic AG-AF100. It’s finished, fabulous, and will be available for shipping very soon. This production sample was snatched from our assembly line for a few snapshots and it works perfectly. As with all of our iDC products it features a custom fit and not a generic adaptation. Currently we are at the NAB show in Las Vegas where you can see and handle this nifty new set-up in person. Find us, and our latest gear offerings, in booth C7148!
