The Barcelona World Race, a long-awaited sporting event has started just before the end of 2010 and OVIDE has been there providing 6 Canon HDTV zoom stabilizing lens HJ15ex8.5B KRSE-V, and Panasonic P2 format cameras and other accessories, to the organization and TVE.
The Barcelona World Race is the first only double-handed (two-crew) non-stop regatta around the world in three months. It started on December 31st and it will be broadcast daily. These zoom lens are fitted with the stabilizing system VAP-IS (Vari Angle Prism Image-Stabilizer), which makes it ideal to shoot outside since it provides a wide range of absorbed frequencies of exterior vibrations generated by the operator himself while carrying the camera on his shoulder, the tripod, platforms, wind, carriers such as a motorcycles, cars, helicopters or even vessels, due to the fact these lenses provide four different types of stabilizers.
OVIDE is the first spanish company which has them, and we foresee that it will be a revolution because of its excellence and quality.
