BUMP!

Actually, I was curious Brian,

Can the redrock body be raised up from the rail clamps? I own a mattebox and rods and would love to be able to mount it on those 15mm rods (Cavision Matte box).

Is it possible to take the M2 off the clamp, maybe put some shims under it and raise it up a few mm's?

Hey Matt

Yes, we sell a shim kit that allows you to adjust the adapter vertically - however, it's a standard 15mm/60mm center to center, so all your normal rod-mounted gear should already work fine. We have lots of cavision matte box users, chorosziel matte box/ff, etc.

Hey Brian,

That is great to hear. Since I can get away with only buying the adapter, and not rods, makes me much more likely to buy it! HOORAY!

Still wish I could shouldermount (Darn image flip... I wish someone would make a view-finder flipper... hint hint wink wink nudge nudge say no more say no more)

OK...

so let me get this right...

I have a Canon XL2. What would I need to get up and running to get this film look?

EF Adaptor for XL2?
Micro35?
what else? I have a fairly inexpensive tripod ($200 Davis & Sanford FM 18 Fluid Head) and I also have a DV Rig Pro from Veri-Zoom for the XL2)

would the above be all I need and just use my 20X lens or do I need to get another lens? If so, which one will give me a beautiful look and where can I get it?

I am gearing up to begin shooting my third short film in a month. Is there a steap learning curve on this thing or is it a matter of being good at having a steady shot and knowing how to manually focus the lens?

also, do I need another moniter for this or is the viewfinder on the XL-2 anough? I know these questions may seem dumb but I am brand new to this technology and want to make sure this is the right thing for me to sink my $$$ into.

You do not need the EF adapter,

only to make it smaller for hand held work...
