16x9 Inc. Introduces TurtleX for Lightweight DV Camcorders
16x9 Inc. has introduced TurtleX from Easyrig, the new portable camera support designed especially for DV and HDV camcorders weighing up to 10 lbs (3kg).
Employing an overhead support arm, back support bar and hip belt, the ergonomically designed TurtleX transfers static load from the arms and shoulder muscles down to the hips, where it is more easily supported. The system also provides lightweight camcorders with extra stability for steadier shots, while at the same time offering the speed and mobility of a handheld camera.
The TurtleX' new integral backpack features a segmented cushioned interior for carrying and protecting the camera, batteries and all necessary accessories. Roomy exterior pockets provide additional storage space for extra equipment such as microphones. Assembly and breakdown of the TurtleX is fast and hassle free. The lightweight support arm simply detaches and folds for easy storage in the system backpack.
TurtleX is available exclusively in the U.S. through 16x9 Inc. For a limited time, 16x9 Inc. is offering the TurtleX at the special introductory price of $1175 (Suggested U.S. List Price is $1385).
