Redrock Micro have launched a great little accessory that I have been wishing they would build for a long time. It’s called the DSLR Mini tripod platform and it attaches to the company’s DSLR baseplate system to create a super compact way to mount a camera onto a rails system and still have it fit onto a tripod.
If you have The Event rig or Captain Stubling then the DSLR Mini tripod platform is an essential in my book. Before this came out the only other way to do this with Redrock Micro was with a large and heavy tripod platform. The DSLR Mini tripod platform costs $59.
Cinevate have launched the Simplis line of DSLR rigs designed to be simple and yet adjustable. They use a Manfrotto style mounitng system as the core which allows you to bolt on ball jointed components that can be positioned in almost any directions. The rigs can be built up into various configurations and even be made into a shoulder rig with the right accessories.
