A good friend of mine has been working this past year on a really cool solution for unique shooting situations based upon his own experiences as a RED operator on music videos, commercials and etc. The setup allows you to mount a reference shotgun mic in a solid top handle.
Can be used with EPIC, SCARLET or RED ONE.
15 units in stock at an incredible price of only $295 includes top handle, single 3" riser and mic shock-mount holder. This is solid gear.
1. The top handle has the course knurl texture of a pro weightlifting bar to guarantee you get a solid grip on your $60,000 EPIC.
2. The handle is hollow which allows you to mount a shotgun mic inside the handle to be used for reference audio directly into the camera.
3. The riser is stout enough to use a single riser but there are plenty of holes in the handle for a two-riser setup on RED or EPIC/Scarlet with the Adapter Plate.
Additional accessories (some pictured but not included)
He's also made rotating rail mounts, matching side handles, 2" risers and a quick-release LCD mount available upon request for an additional charge. (really affordable).
