Back when the “Megalodon” – FOX Sports’ wireless sideline camera rig built from a Sony mirrorless camera and Ronin gimbal – first burst onto the scene in December, the network promised that it would work it into as many other of its sports properties as they could.
Since then, the device has been seen in the pits at the Daytona 500 and, now, on the pitch of Mexico’s top flight soccer league, Liga MX.
The rig is the same that was used by FOX during the NFL season: a Sony a7R IV, a Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM lens, a Ronin-S handheld gimbal, and custom transmission solutions from CP Communications.
