With the impending worldwide releases of Nikon’s two new video capable, full-frame DSLR’s in the D4 and D800, Redrock Micro, the HSDLR rig makers that needs no formal introduction, have acknowledged the company’s advancements in DSLR video and have opted to create rigs of the limited edition variety that compliment the aforementioned cameras.
The three rigs in question, which happen to be Redrock Micro’s most popular, the Captain Stubling the RunningMan; and the Field Cinema Deluxe V2, will remain absolutely identical to their current counterparts, but, as shown above, will be highlighted with Nikon Gold and Midnight Black accent colors instead of the known Redrock blue.
Nikon shooters can begin placing orders immediately on a rig configuration of their choice, starting at $514.00. Full press release after the break:
