rods ...

So here we have the first accessory line that truly unanswers the bell for the indie producer looking for a turnkey bundle of proprietary goodies that are not in the aftermarket. A new spec for the diameter and spacing will only accept their matte box, filters and flags. Tiffen would be more than happy to private label that one. At a relatively low production run, the aftermarket will be slow if not uninterested in development.

Toyota are masters at this. Try finding Echo parts in the public domain. It's their little experiment to thwart the white box producers. Profit, not cashflow, funds innovation.

Well, I put money down on one...does that tell you?

As info is leaking out slowly, I have yet to find issue with anything...no deal killers.

Nice work, Murad!

By the way for those interested, I really don't think those are built-in rails at the lower front of the camera body. I'm betting those are sliders for the shoulder support -- it can probably be adjusted forward and backward by an inch or two or three. -->>>

They are just rods for blanceing the camera.

Focus Assist exagerates the detail in the viewfinder.

The rods prevent the camera from leaning over on to the lens. Yes the camera is slightly front heavy, but not enough to be trouble some for your wrist.

rods again

well, if another things are photoshoped, maybe is possible to "suggest" to JVC also longer rods, in that case - real follow focus will fit easily.
is someone cappable to extract the lenght of pictured rods? and maybe to put follow focus also?
hm...

Okay, now I get it -- kind of like a kickstand for a motorcycle.

Follow focuses and matteboxes

At the AVR show I asked about a QR plate ala VCT-U14 with a Chroizel 401-55 kinda thing. JVC didn't have any immediate plans to incorporate a rod mount, though I feel an accessory of this type will be popular. Right now, the bottom of the camcorder has only a 1/4in thread mount and a VHS alignment spud (subject to change). With all the stuff I anticipate hanging on this guy (Anton/Bauer gold mount adapter, extended viewfinder, ff, mattebox, 6in TransVideo on a dogbone, a couple of wireless, a coffee maker, etc.) I hope some NC maven comes to market with a heavy duty support system. Titanium, please.
