Zacuto Joins Pro Video Scene for Nikon D90 and Canon 5D Mark II

Zacuto is another (remember Redrock?) video accessory maker that has joined the trend of pimping out your DSLR for video use.  By the way, did you see the latest Canon videos?  The Reverie video is back, as well as a wedding video – both with the 5D Mark II.

Zacuto has got kits designed specifically for the new Canon 5D Mark II and Nikon D90.  Don’t expect them to go for the price of a nice tripod though (no prices listed yet for the DSLR mounts).  One of the other base model kits, the DOF Docu Baseplate Kit, goes for a meager $1216.  Granted, that may be a bargain in video world, but pulling in traditional photographers at those prices may be a tough sell.

It’ll be interesting to see how well these accessories are received among photographers (or budding videographers).  What do you think?  Is there a Zacuto mount on your Christmas list now?

I am filmmaker/videographer. Now I have more reason to buy the Canon 5d MKII and use for video projects using this bracket.
