Canon 5D Mark II and Nikon D90: Accessorized for Video

It was only a matter of time until some industrious company stepped in and filled this niche.  Redrock Micro “Redrock Micro designs and sells a line of high quality cinema accessories for independent filmmakers, film educators and students, and budget-conscious moviemakers” and has just upped the ante for the mainstay of DSLR accessory makers that have been resting on their fat laurels.

The above contraption is a video platform designed to the specs and functionalities of our two video-capable DSLRs, the Canon 5D Mark II and the Nikon D90.  So, what’s it do?

Redrock accessories for video DSLRs transform video DSLRs into production-ready cinema solutions by providing:

  • Rock-solid 15mm support system
  • Follow focus for accurate and repeatable focusing
  • Swing-away mattebox for light management and easy access to changing lenses
  • Shoulder mount and handgrips for steady handheld use
  • Support cage for enhanced stability and low angle shot

    @John Wall: You’re kidding right? You don’t look through the viewfinder for video with a dslr since the mirror is in the way. You look at the rear lcd or an external monitor.

    isn’t this a bit overkill? do you really need all those metal tubes? what’s missing is the eyepiece adapter/extender with diopter.

    genius comparable video cameras with large sensors and depth of field accessories will run you $5k+

    in response to roderick’s response, Stupid is not having one of these for cinema!!! Can’t beat it and you can’t go wrong, for the unbelievable cost and effectiveness. but then again if you do want to be stupid and spend more (a lot more!!!!) and shoot cheesy looking videos than thank your lucky stars for living in a free country :)
