Redrock Micro Unveils ultraCage | Blue
If you were paying attention during the Canon EOS announcements, you might have noticed there was more than just new cameras. There was new gear as well from Redrock Micro. There’s been a lot of new camera support gear of late, but it was Redrock that brought their ultraCage to the party.
Boasting that it’s the first cage designed specifically for the just-announced Canon EOS C300, the ultraCage has all the needed pieces for accommodating any rig no matter what accessories you use. Not having seen the rig, I can say it appears to be a great compliment to not only the C300 but also your current DSLR. It’s been reported that Redrock Micro was selected by Canon ti be available for the production teams making videos for the C300 release. You can clearly see these rigs in the BTS video and stills.
Redrock Micro’s James Hurd had this to about their new line of rigs:
“When Canon approached us to create a cage that would ‘finish’ the C300 into a supremely functional production camera, we wanted to do something more than just create a square cage. We felt it was important to mirror C300’s compactness and beautiful lines without increasing the camera’s footprint. Customers want to retain the camera’s feel and ergonomics, and add the support, security, and features of the ultraCage.”

I thought my team had covered the Redrock Micro booth on Sunday but apparently I missed something there. I know this device has been around for some time, but if you haven’t seen this then you should see it now: The “redrockmicro microRemote”
Brian must have found a way to do time travelling. I assume that he got this wireless follow focus lcs device from the future. For all people on a no-budget the Jag35 remote is a great deal (!) and for the low-budget people the microRemote is still a bargain at $2200.
We’ll hold our breath until June 15th to see if this thing is as sexy in use as it looks on paper. Redrock Micro has introduced some very good products (follow focus and baseplate come to mind among others) and seems to be improving their quality every year.
Cheers on this product.
10 Questions with Red Rock Microâ€™s Brian Valente.
1. How did Red Rock Micro begin?
RRM was started approx 7 years ago. We were a group of avid indie filmmakers disappointed by the cost of quality production equipment, and appalled at the quality of low cost equipment. We felt there must be a better solution for people who don’t want to compromise on quality but can’t afford to spend more on accessories than they did on their camera. As a result our mission has been to create quality cinema accessories that are affordable for normal human beings to own.
