Run and Gun Kit for Canon EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 7D

Keeping with the DSLR revolution, we’ve consistently seen new innovations in support for cameras like the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and Canon EOS 7D throughout the past year.  Recently released, the iDC Run & Gun Kit has quickly become one of our favorite new DSLR accessories. Bruce Dorn, engineer/creator behind many of iDC’s inventions, explains: “over-sized and overly-complex focusing systems might look butch but they effectively waste the stealthy advantages of a compact capture device like the Canon 5D.”  While elaborate rigs like the Redrock DSLR Cinema Bundle offer robust camera support the iDC Run & Gun Kit features a stripped down, compact design that highlights the relatively tiny size of DSLR cameras. The primary elements of the iDC Run & Gun Kit are the Hoodman 3.0 Loupe and iDC Follow Focus.  Fully attachable to the camera in less than a minute, separate designs fit specifically to the different body styles of the Canon 5D and Canon 7D. The iDC Follow Focus fits snugly against the DSLR focus ring.  Rotate the friction wheel counter clockwise to move towards infinity, clockwise to bring the focus plane towards the camera.  Witness marks are also included to improve the functionality of this sleek design whether you’re shooting solo or employing the skills of a camera assistant. These small additions make a massive difference in the functionality of DLSR shooting.  Quickly mounting and detaching from standard tripods, a camera operator can switch to handheld shooting in a moment’s notice. The iDC Run & Gun Kit is a great reminder of the shooting versatility available with DSLR cameras.  Independent filmmakers now have more opportunities than ever to capture spectacular images on a tight budget.  Rent the iDC Run & Gun Kit, now available at Moving Picture!

Blackmagic Design HDMI to SDI Mini Converter

Blackmagic Design’s HDMI to SDI Mini Converter makes HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) workflow easier than ever.  Popular DSLR cameras like the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and Canon EOS 7D feature HDMI ports that allow for seamless integration with the latest audio/video devices.  This relatively new digital alternative to analog connections has added to camera versatility but also limited options for video playback.  The Blackmagic HDMI to SDI converter widens the possibilities for DSLR cameras, creating SDI outputs from an HDMI source.  This gives DSLR users the opportunity to connect to SD-SDI equipment without any headaches. The Blackmagic HDMI to SDI Mini Converter fits easily on top of a camera with the hot shoe adapter.  Moreover, you can also Velcro the Mini Converter to a Zacuto or Redrock Rig when full mobility is needed. The beauty of converting HDMI with the Blackmagic Mini Converter is that the only cable coming from camera is HD-SDI.  This allows for a full video assist setup that features Panasonic BT-LH1700 17” LCD monitors, among others, integrated seamlessly into a DSLR workflow.  A package like this is perfect if you have a client (advertising agency, perhaps) who needs to see what’s being shot. In order to add mobility and function to the Blackmagic converter, we include with every rental a Nebtek battery adapter that uses standard Sony L-Batteries.  This avoids all the issues that come with depending on an AC power source when in the field.  The Blackmagic HDMI to SDI Mini Converter is available for rent with Moving Picture, your answer for DSLR cameras and accessories!

The Redrock DSLR Cinema Bundle

The Redrock DSLR Cinema Bundle enables cinema-style shooting with cameras that are otherwise limited due to size and design.  DSLR cameras such as the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and Canon 7D boast a number of benefits (excellent image quality, low light shooting, etc) but are less than ideal for handheld shooting.  The Redrock DSLR rig solves this problem. The Redrock Cinema Bundle features a protective and stabilizing microSupport cage built from carbon fiber rods (easily disassembled for storage).  A padded shoulder mount, including front handgrips, increases mobility.  Rounding out the Redrock system is the microFollowFocus, which attaches seamlessly and enables fully functional focus pulling. The Redrock camera support package also includes a number of options that make life easy for camera operators.  With a cheeseplate and rod clamp included, the entire system can go from handheld to tripod in a matter of seconds.  Additional add-ons such as the Hoodman Viewfinder Cinema Kit and Marshall V-LCD70P-HDMI Lightweight Monitor can be integrated into the system to meet your specific needs.
