Testing by multiple prototype users resulted in an optimal size and grip diameter for any hand size

Demand is growing for more efficient ways to produce high quality videos in the field of 4K digital content production for large events such as the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and the FIFA World Cup. In response, a project was launched to develop accessories for compact, lightweight portable cameras with two specific needs. First, for a focus function that leverages digital control to resolve the details in 4K ultra HD videos and accurately capture the most subtle focusing peak, and second, for an easy-to-operate zoom function that allows users to concentrate on zooming for the accurate capture of desired images. Camera crews from domestic broadcast and production companies, as well as international users, tested the prototypes. Grip size, product weight, and the positions of buttons were adjusted based on feedback to ensure optimal operability and design.
