New Products released by Red Rock Micro


This is right off the press, Red Rock Micro updated their offering for DSLR Rigs. In fact, it is such a scoop that they have not updated their website yet! Here is the press release:

Hollywood, CA  (September 17, 2009) — Redrock Micro, the leading provider of cinema accessories for digital filmmakers, today announced a wide range of new accessories to enhance video DSLRs. Collectively these new accessories significantly reduce weight and increase the options available to exactly match customers’ desired features and configuration.

Highlights of products in this release include:

Carbon Fiber rods that cut weight a dramatic 66% – Redrock’s second-generation carbon fiber rods deliver state-of-the-art precision and strength, and are 66% lighter than comparable stainless steel rods. All Redrock DSLR rigs are now shipping with carbon fiber rods.

theEvent DSLR rig for wedding/event and photojournalism – a new DSLR rig that incorporates the microBrace body pad is an affordable quality solution for handheld with maximum stability.

Remote start/stop holder for Canon video DSLRs – a convenient accessory to mount the Canon IR remote for start/stop video recording on Canon DSLRs.

Support for DSLRs with battery grips – the new microLink4 better positions the DSLR body in front of the eye for comfortable viewfinder use. The microLink4 “flat” delivers this support for DSLRs with battery grips or other under-camera accessory.

“The response to video DSLRs and the companion Redrock rigs have been tremendous,” said James Hurd, Chief Revolutionary of Redrock Micro. “Now in our third generation of cinema accessories, we continue to answer our customer’s call for ultra lightweight, and even more options to configure rigs exactly to their specifications.” Redrock video DSLR rigs and accessories are the only products to win the Best of Show Black Diamond Awards handed out at the 2009 NAB Show by DV Magazine.

Redrock DSLR support rigs and accessories enhance video DSLRs (such as the Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 7D, Nikon D90, and Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GH1) with the stability, strength, and features for cinema-style shooting, while maintaining the ultra lightweight, small footprint, and rapid setup of still photography. Redrock’s DSLR hybrid support rigs are perfectly designed for the demands of today’s digital still and motion photographers.

Vanguard DSLR filmmakers using Redrock rigs include Vincent Laforet, Rodney Charters, and most recently Shane Hurlbut (Director of Photography for “Terminator: Salvation”).

The new Redrock Micro DSLR accessories are available for immediate ordering direct from Redrock  and from select Redrock resellers, and are expected to ship in September. Redrock accessories are always affordably priced for personal ownership: specific pricing depends on configuration and options.
