« on: August 24, 2012, 09:22:12 AM »

Part I - Ergonomics and Connections

Part 2 - Lenses and Filters

Part 3 - Matte boxes and Follow Focus

Part 4 - Audio Gear

Part 5 - External Monitors, Viewfinders and Power Supplies

Part 6 - Baseplates, Rods and Cages

Part 7 - Tripods, Heads and Other Support

Part 8 - Handheld and Steadycam Rigs

Part 9 - Other Specialized Rigs, LANC Controllers and Miscellaneous Tools

Part 10 - Bags, Cases and Straps

Hope this helps.

From part 1 "itís perfect for displacing video-only cameras for work such as sporting events,"

That sentence alone demonstrates that whoever is trying to sell this box hasn't a clue about the requirements of the market.
