I'll post more tomorrow.

Dan,
first: I am your BIG fan!
Your short stories are amazing... I have been following them since you posted a first one done with 5D MKII on Vimeo...
I do have Genus wide angle matte box. I got it dirt cheap (1/2 regular price) on eBay last fall for my EX1 set up. I loved the small size and lightweight.
Than I got 5D in January and I started using it with Genus matte box. I also added Vanguard Tru-grip at the bottom for hand holding it. It works great. Only issue is that once I got follow focus (eventually) I will have to add Manfrotto 357 sliding plate to offset camera body position on the base in order to mount follow focus when using very small Nikkor AIS prime lenses lenses.
If there is interest, I can post the image of the "rig"...

Cheers from Toronto.

I hear you Derek. I placed mine a few weeks ago and haven't heard a word on shipping. I also inquired this morning because it has been very challenging to find what I believe to be the correct parts to work with my 5D. I believe I bought an extra part and asked if I could substitute something of equal value for this part I don't need and was told that I would probably need that part in the future and it was good to have. No option for getting what I actually need. This company is a little crazy.

Steven,

Thanks for the compliment. I've started a new thread on the Genus here http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/canon-eos...tebox-rig.html so as not to confuse this Redrock thread any more. I'd love to see pix of your rig, that grip looks interesting.

Jon,

I think there are some minor improvements for the Redrock in the works that might be why your order is a little delayed. What did you order. I noticed their new v2 follow focus is ow available and I'm glad I waited to order.

Thanks for the info Dan. I must say that I am a huge fan as well and seeing some of your video helped push me in the direction of the 5D. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing some new material from you in the near future.

Any word on the new Beachtek for the 5D?
