This is very cool. Everything you need in order to start shooting and capturing video - selected, pre-packaged and fitted inside a custom backpack. What more could you want?

This is perfect for shooting internet video, video journalists, commercial and business video production

According to Sony, the new VJBK1T Turnkey Field Acquisition Backpack is an affordable, turn-key solution package ideal for use by professionals and up-and-coming video journalists. Packaged in a backpack designed for maximum protection and storage of your gear, the kit comes equipped with a compact professional recorder, full wireless microphone system, pro headphones, Xperia tablet, tripod, LED light kit, as well as cables and accessories -- all the tools necessary for capturing high-quality video, audio, lighting and even teleprompting.

  • HXR-NX30 compact professional camcorder.

  • UWPV1/3032 full wireless microphone system including body pack "lavaliere" microphone.

  • F-112 hand-held microphone that can be used in either a wired or wireless configuration.

  • MDR-7506 pro headphones for critical listening of your audio sources.

  • Included in the package is Sony's latest Xperia tablet PC which can be used for playback of clips in the field, or alternately as a teleprompter. It can also be used for watching videos you've just shot, as well as for researching information on any of the items included in this kit!

  • A video tripod essential for keeping the camera steady during interview shots, allowing for making smooth pans and tilts. This tripod also has a remote control built in that will help in capturing smooth shots with your NX30 camera.

  • The kit also contains an "on-camera" LED video light. Having proper lighting on your subject can make a big difference in the quality of your video. This light is dimmable and can be set to match both indoor and outdoor lighting conditions, and is even cool to the touch. It also uses the same rechargeable batteries that the camera uses, or AA batteries.

  • All the cables, batteries and charger, lens cleaning kit, additional memory card, and other accessory items that you'll need to take full advantage of this portable camera production package are included.

  • The backpack is designed for maximum protection of your gear, and includes a rain cover and a work mat to lie out your gear, as well as providing a lightweight and easily portable storage solution for the equipment list provided.

  • Included in the package is Sony Creative Software's latest version of Vegas (TM) Pro Software. Vegas pro is perfect for editing the clips just captured and for adding that finished look to video creations.
