Redrock Micro Delivers Another First: The New ultraCage | blue for Canon EOS C100
First Support Cage for C100 Builds on Canon/ Redrock EOS Cinema Heritage
Hollywood, CA and Dallas, TX - Redrock Micro, the recognized leader in affordable professional-level cinema accessories, announced today the new ultraCage | blue for the Canon EOS C100. Built in partnership with Canon for the premiere at IBC 2012, the ultraCage C100's form-fitting design matches the ergonomics and size of the C100, adds needed support and mounting features, and minimizes bulk and weight.
Canon and Redrock Do It Again
When the revolutionary EOS C300 was introduced in November 2011, Canon selected Redrock as the exclusive rig provider for the launch including featured films from Vincent Laforet DGA, Sam Nicholson ASC, Richard Crudo ASC and Felix Alcala/Larry Carroll.
Building on this success and Redrock's recognized heritage of innovation and design, Canon has again tapped Redrock to deliver a support cage uniquely created for the C100 for the camera's worldwide preview at IBC 2012.
"Recognizing the integral role of support equipment and Redrock for the C300 launch, Canon approached us to create a support system that would match the form, style and pricing level of the EOS C100," said James Hurd, Chief Revolutionary of Redrock Micro. "We felt it was important to mirror the C100's beautiful design without increasing the camera's footprint. The ultraCage C100 retains the camera's feel and ergonomics, and adds the support, stability and features customers want for this phenomenal camera. Redrock's revolutionary prices are also a great match to the C100's new entry level price for Canon EOS Cinema."
