Recently I’ve used the RedRock DSLR Field Cinema Deluxe Bundle for a lot of my work, and it into my demonstrations for the Canon DSLR 5D & 7D Boot Camp. This particular rig is a shoulder-mount which allows you capture a steady video. This is designed to be able to be used with an external monitor, and with this rig, a follow focus is included.
Why I would recommend this rig:
-This particular Canon DSLR 5D rig is extremely well balanced and is quite comfortable. Not only is it easily put together but it can be mounted very quickly as well.
-This rig is extremely durable! It is made out of machined aluminum and is very strong. So far I haven’t encountered any problems with any of the parts breaking off. I would highly recommend it for a video production crew because of how sturdy it is.
-Another great feature this particular rig has is that it is extremely adaptable. Not only does the rod system work with various manufacturers’ products, but you don’t have to worry about buying a new follow focus. The one that is on-board works perfectly fine.
-Jerry rigging and customization is also another awesome aspect that this rig provides. For example we swapped out counterweights on the rig and mounted an Anton Bauer. A Marshall 7 inch screen is hooked up to this battery pack, which allows for long lasting life and gets rid of the necessity for a battery pack on the back of the monitor.
If you’d like to get practical experience using this rig with the Canon DSLR 5D or 7D, be sure to sign up for the next Canon Camera Class.
