K-Tek Norbert system mounts accessories for SLR, DSLR, HD video cameras
K-Tek has introduced the Norbert Camera Accessory Mounting System for SLR, video-capable DSLR and compact HD video cameras.
Norbert allows users to attach a large array of production tools to a camera without compromising its integral shoe mount. The heart of the system is the Norbert lightweight, black, anodized aluminum frame.
The frame attaches to the camera via a quick-release mechanism. Additional threaded holes on the base accept tripod mounting brackets. The frame’s angled design enables larger, heavier accessories to be centered over the camera's center of gravity, providing a natural, balanced package when used for handheld applications as well as better access to the monitor.
