Biggest Camera Geek at CES 2013

Biggest Camera Geek at CES 2013 Conferences & Trade shows Today I met a cyborg at CES, and his name was Charbax.

While I have seen bigger and more complex camera rigs at CES, including several that complete TV studios, I think the geekiest camera guy was Nicolas Charbonnier (aka Charbax).

Charbax blogs over at, and he mainly posts videos. He wears his camera in an over the shoulder metal rig. The camera itself is on a double jointed arm with a pivot mounted on the end.

The headset includes a small screen so he can watch what he's recording.

He doesn't just record video with this rig; he livestreams it to a Google+ hangout (here, I think). I am surprised he can get a signal while on the show floor; most of the time I can't because of either Wifi or 4G congestion.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Wow, he looks very creepy too. Hopefully he does not show up at a playground with that on.
