Following the introductions at Photokina of the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and Nikon D90, the first two DSLRs with high-definition video capture abilities, a cinema accessory maker has developed a new line of accessories that convert these cameras into full-fledged, production-ready cinema solutions for filmmakers. Redrock Micro's video DSLR Bundle is a modular system that adds a shoulder mount, support system, follow focus, swing-away mattebox, handgrips and a support cage to the DSLR of your choice. The system comes in three configurations depending on usage.

Redrock Micro to Transform Canon EOS 5D Mark II and Nikon D90 Intro Production Ready Cinema Solutions

October 30, 2008 -- Redrock Micro, a company started in 2004 that sells a line of high quality cinema accessories for independent filmmakers, film educators and students, and budget-conscious moviemakers, has announced new accessories that bring the needed cinema form factor, support, and features to video DSLRs like the Nikon D90 and Canon EOS 5D Mark II.

Video Digital SLRs (35mm digital still cameras) now produce amazing high quality HD video and deliver the advantages of 35mm lenses, but remain awkward for use in video and movie production. To meet the needs of filmmakers who are taking advantage of this cutting edge approach, Redrock will be releasing accessories for video DSLRs that transform them 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
