by planetmitchLeave a Comment

We still have quite a few videos to process from the PhotoCine EXPO from a week ago. There's just so much news lately and we're trying to show it all to you!

Redrock Micro

We met Sage from FilmSourceLA and talked for a few minutes. Here's the result

Some more info on the rig from Sage and FilmSourceLA:

We had a 5D mII inside a powered Viewfactor cage. Hooked into the cage to power the camera and the other accessories is a single Anton Bauer battery. As for the accessories go, we had the Black Magic HDMI to SDI convertor box, two monitors one being the SmallHD monitor. What’s great about the SmallHD is that you can view the image at full screen in preview mode as well as during recording. For sound we had the Zoom H4 recorder. We were using the Arri MMB matte box as well as the Arri MFF-1 follow focus. Also, as lenses go we had one of the Zeiss Compact Prime CP.2's attached.

We’re a boutique camera rental house that specializes in DSLR cameras and lenses. We come from a shooting background so we base our rigs on what a DP might need for any given shoot, large or small. We don’t feel need the need to pressure people into renting exclusively from us, and welcome any questions someone might have on the DSLR systems.

Check them out at and our thanks to Sage for taking a few minutes to chat with us!
