Its a bit more complicated than I thought it was but its hard to get a full feel when
your watching video demo's versus having the piece parts in your hands and putting
the rig together for your needs...

Looks like a very nice setup,modular and adaptable as you go...

You have to really commit to using this style of camera for the price...

One of the good things is DSLR bodies dont' change much in size so this
type of system should be adaptable to any future DSLR cameras coming
down the pipe.. so the investment can at least be used for years to come.

That's correct -- their new mini rig is not yet added to their website, (Redrock's beautiful but not too useful website ;^)

Yes, the video site I listed is for the original kit.... I put it here because it shows
how the cage is built and the top handle setup...

They do have the DSLR 2.0 on the site but I don't think its all there yet as they
have mentioned a holder for the hoodman will be available and its not on the site
yet...

Redrock added this rig yesterday to the web site...

Ultraport DSLR Bundle

I don't see any cheap solutions coming... just different setups

When I look through Redrock's catalog, I can't help thinking that something, sooner or later, has to change price-wise before those Indian manufacturers take over completely.

Seriously what is up with those press releases? It's very deceiving and will end up turning some people away from them.

Peer, you mention the indian made setups but have you tried out any of them to check out the quality?

Maybe it is just me but all of these products seem grossly over priced.
Seem like very good products, but why so much?

I bought this small jib arm crane from the Indian guys on eBay as I couldn't resist the incredibly cheap price. Cine Movie Camera Jib Crane for hvx200 VX2100 VX2000 ! - eBay (item 130291478585 end time Mar-11-09 04:40:20 PDT) It's rugged & industrial of mostly steel construction & very heavy. I had to get them send me new parts as the weight rod & part it fits into hadn't been machined to the correct size. The finishing isn't great but for the price I am not really complaining. Having seen the quality of this item & a cheap shoulder mount I would think twice about buying something that needed to be precision made like a follow focus or DOF adaptor.

It might be the same (bad) quality, but that's a different company than the Cine City -- the guys you were dealing with, Digital Video Product, mostly sell tripod & jigs.

Peer, can you let us know as soon as you can mate? I'm about to order from The Cine City the Pro shoulder support and follow focus (and probably the uFlycam) so any experienced advice would be most helpful. The prices are great and the gear Looks OK.

Thanks in advance!

It's the same company. They list on eBay under a couple of guises. I know that they are the same company as they offered me a discount on a future purchase after I was mucked around with parts not fiting on the jib arm. When I enquired about a matte box they sent me a link to the Cine City web site The CineCity*::*DV accessories for Canon 5D markII camera

I had my suspicions that this was the case. Thanks for the heads up.
