With the explosion of HDSLR production, more and more productions are renting our Canon 5D and 7D cameras, which has excited our team and led us to some interesting solutions to setting up these cameras for professional use. The desire for shallow depth of field requires matte boxes for ND filters, and follow focus systems for precise focus. Making the focus repeatable requires proper lenses that have manual focus rings. Operating and monitoring requires special adapters. For all of this, we supply equipment from Chrosziel, RedRock Micro, Zacuto, 16×9, Marshall, and more to help you make awesome images with the Canon HDSLRs, whether yours or ours.
One of the most important problems to solve has been how to power the camera and all of the accessories that now go with it. The answer has arrived, courtesy of Viewfactor. We now have cages that surround the camera, give you a place to attach things to it, and power both the camera and accessories from a bigger battery than Canon can supply. Hurray!
