    Cavision RS-15IIM-200 reviews

    RS-15IIM Rod Support System for Mini DV Camcorders is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value - & a DSLR user suggestion Got this to attach follow focus/etc to my DVX and D90.The good: very tough and very lightweight, simple to use.The so-so: After a few hours of setting up & fiddling with it, finish is already coming off the knobs & latches.Works very well with the DVX; however, for a DSLR, you should get the Cavision reversed version (currently $ at B&H). With this one, it's hard to get a FF close enough to an SLR body. Overall it's a great value - it's tough and lightweight, and available in 200mm and 250mm rod sizes - and of course it'll take any other 15mm rods you have or purchase.Still, I was thinking of exchanging this for the reversed one, but the finish issues may cause some hassle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a solid first rail system I bought this system to support an hv40 with lens adapter. While the matte box support piece isn't necessarily designed as a lens support it does help steady such an extended lens. While the rails aren't the longest they are just long enough to be able to attach a cine arm or two and even a follow focus. For the price this is a great support for any mid to smaller sized camera. Only negative is that while the matte box support does work as a lens support, it would be great to have it designed for such (or have an option of it instead of the matte box). I feel much more comfortable with my camera on these rails. Great quality for teh price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great Just got it a few days ago. I wanted to have support for my Jag35pro 35mm adapter with my Canon Vixia HF M300. I did not know if it would work but it did. the back plate can move side to side, also up and down. also where the thread for the tripod is can be move forward and back. also the front small support thingy can be adjusted height wise and also can move back and forth. one thing I found was is if the front plate is down too much I have trouble putting it on the tripod. the plate on my tripod slides in, so it hits a lip in the front. but its not too bad, i still get it through. Definitely has a sturdy construction to it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, great design! The Cavision RS-15IIM Rod Support System is a great product! It is lightweight, the carbon fiber rails are sturdy, and the overall ease of use and construction is excellent. It easily mounts on a tripod, and easily supports my Panasonic HVX with the Letus Extreme Lens Adaptor. I couldn't be happier! Don't let the price get you down, this is a great product and is very versatile. It also has many accessories that you can buy separately such as a shoulder mount, or hand grips. It is the most affordable rod support system especially for those of us who don't have ... to spend on the more expensive rail systems out there.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beware of camera plate mounting bolt!!! These Cavision rod systems have a horrible design flaw that renders them dangerous to your camera. The plate that the camera mounts to is held on by a SINGLE allen bolt. What's worse, a nearby hole for a tripod screw directly intersects the hole for this one allen screw. ARE THEY NUTS?!! It leaves an EIGHTH-INCH of functional threads keeping that one allen screw in place. When it breaks, (it WILL break) I hope you catch your camera before it hits the floor. Anyway, there is a point to this rant! To fix the allen bolt issue, I put a wafer of lead into the big tripod screw hole so it's lying on the exposed threads of the all-important screw. Then I put a set screw from the hardware store into the tripod mount hole and tighten down so that it's pressing the soft lead against the screw threads. Much more solid now! If anyone has this abhorrent piece of equipment (Cavision RS 15IIM), I HIGHLY recommend this preventative measure. Wish I could post photos to make this more clear, but you'll understand once you have the unit in your hands.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid construction I really love this rods support. It is solidly constructed and versatile. The camera plate can be configured as pictured or reversed, plus it has vertical and horizontal adjustment. I use the front mount for Cavision's 3x3 matte box and the rods support comes with the screws to attach it as well as the two Allen wrenches you need to make the various adjustments. As with most Cavision products I've bought, this comes packed in foam with the aforementioned hardware and tools - no manuals, no documentation of any kind. Just be aware of that.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well built Product, Easily Assembled I use this product with my HV30 Digital Camcorder and a Letus35 Mini DOF adapter. The lens support structure at the end of the rods doesn't support Letus DOF adapters, so I had to buy an alternative from @, however I expected this. The rods are carbon fiber, and the camera mount supports any camera. I highly recommend this product because of the price compared to other carbon fiber support systems. The only cons I can think of is that it would have been much easier if some parts of the interface had knobs instead of hex bolts - especially the tightening system. Overall, great product. 4/5
