This B&H kit combines a Redrock Micro DSLR Field Cinema Deluxe Bundle v2
, a Porta Brace Universal Shoulder Pad
, a Marshall 7" LCD Monitor

, a PowerTap (male) to XLR (4-pin) cable
and an Anton Bauer QR-DSLR Gold Mount, Dionic 90 Lithium-Ion Battery, and Tandem-70 Battery Charger
. The kit bundles professional monitoring and battery power with a shoulder-mounted 15mm rods system to transform your Canon DSLR from a device that's optimized for still-image capture into a truly professional tool for capturing cinematic high-definition video via handheld operation.
The skeleton of the kit is the Redrock Micro DSLR Field Cinema Deluxe Bundle v2, which is designed to allow the operator to shoot smooth, film-like imagery in a handheld configuration. The three points of contact (shoulder pad and dual handgrips) help eliminate the camera jitter that's a common pitfall of shooting handheld with small cameras. Based on pair of industry-standard 15mm rods, the DSLR Field Cinema Deluxe Bundle v2 hosts at its two ends a shoulder pad with counterbalance weights and the wide-set handgrips that are attached to a third 15mm carbon-fiber rod. The kit's monitor also mounts to this third rod. Mounting on the camera baseplate is the MicroFollowFocus device, which features film-pitch gearing (microLensGears not included). The microBalance counterweight is designed to offset the weight of the front-mounted monitor.
Also included with the kit is a Marshall Electronics V-LCD70XHB-HDMIPT 7" LCD monitor with HDMI, composite, and component inputs, as well as corresponding loop-through outputs. For its analog inputs, there's auto-detection of NTSC or PAL signals. Its resolution is 800 x 480. The monitor's false color and peaking filters are crucial aids for setting exposure and pulling focus accurately.
The kit features a full system for camera and accessory power that was devised specifically for the Canon 5D Mk II, 7D, and 60D DSLR cameras. The Anton Bauer Dionic 90 Li-Ion Battery works with the QR-DSLR Gold Mount and the Canon DR-E6 DC coupler to supply 7.2V to the camera. The PowerTap (male) to XLR (4-pin) cable converts power from the Gold Mount for the monitor. A Tandem-70 charger/AC adapter refills the Dionic 90 battery in under 2 hours.
