Redrock Micro Enhanced Rig Upgrades
 
From RedRock Micro:
 
DSLR, Digital Cinema and Video Camera Rigs Get Softer Pad, Tool-less Counterweights, Other Improvements
 
Hollywood, CA and Dallas, TX - Redrock Micro, the recognized leader in affordable professional-grade cinema accessories, announced today the immediate availability of enhanced camera support rigs that improve performance, comfort and reliability for camera operators. Among these upgrades are the microShoulderPad with FieldTech™, tool-less microBalance QR counterweights, and improved hand grips. The new improvements now come standard on all Redrock rigs, and are available as upgrades to existing customers.
 
New microShoulderPad with FieldTech Molds to Shape of Shoulder
 
The completely redesigned camera shoulder pad improves comfort and balance, critical requirements for long shooting days. The new microShoulderPad uses super-tough Cordura® and breathable 3D mesh, and is filled with soft free-forming microPoly beads that actively adapt to each shoulder's shape and slope. The microShoulderPad promotes proper alignment and better stability with this uniquely balanced pressure distribution, and ensures a new level of comfort and support.
 
microBalance QR Delivers Tool-Less Counterweights and Battery Mount
 
Building on the success of Redrock's microBalance weights, the newly designed microBalance QR rig counterweight speeds rig balance and stability with one-of-a-kind features.
 
Weights can be added or removed just by pushing a button, and without any tools. Multiple weights can be added or removed at once. Battery mounting patterns on each weight enable brick batteries (such as Anton Bauer, Switronix, Sony, etc.) to be attached directly to the microBalance QR, making the battery mount quick release as well.
 
microBalance QR can be set up horizontally or vertically, and can be adjusted for left-right balance in the vertical setup, a capability unique to Redrock. These features result in the fastest, full-featured camera counterbalance system available today.
 
Enhanced Handgrips Improve Grip, Add Features
 
Redrock's rig hand grips have also been updated with improved design and features. The new diamond pattern reduces potential for moisture build-up while the soft rubber surface keeps things comfortable. The added double-lock on each grip end offers an additional option for adding mounting points or rig extensions. A popular use of this feature is attaching the microRemote fingerwheel to the grip when grips are inverted, such as on the ManCam rig.
 
Pricing and Availability
 
The new components are shipping now and are available on all Redrock Micro rigs at no additional cost. Redrock also offers components individually so customers can update their existing Redrock rigs to the latest features. All upgrades are available standalone or in upgrade bundles. As with all Redrock products, customers can purchase direct from Redrock Micro's website at redrockmicro.com, or from any Redrock worldwide authorized reseller.
 
B&H carries Redrock Micro products.

EXCERIA PRO™ will position Toshiba to meet the demands of the high-end DSLR market, including high resolution image capture, sustained continuous shooting, HD video recording and high speed data transfers to other devices.
 
The EXCERIA PRO™ CF cards integrate Toshiba's high performance NAND flash memory and specially developed dedicated firmware. They achieve a read speed of 160MB/s and write speed of 150MB/s4, the highest level yet reported.
