Cine Gear 2016: The Redrock Micro Scout, The Ultimate Camera Multi Tool

As we’ve come to expect from Redrock Micro, they’ve released another defining piece of camera equipment that will be useful to many shooters in the industry with their new Scout camera multi-tool. We spoke with Redrock’s Brian Valente for more on the Scout, as well as their new adjustable lens ring.

First of its Kind

The Scout is first of its kind ultra-portable camera multi-tool. It’s a universal cage and rig in one featuring a built-in microRemote Fingerwheel System that’s wireless ready. The Scout has a rail system when you need a cinema rig, or detach it for a super compact handheld setup. Quick-Change between rigs quickly (with the quick release system), even your gimbal. Integrated power keeps everything tight and self-contained.

Load-and-go, run-and-gun, point-and-shoot right out of the box. Scout is the ultimate self-contained rig for handheld mirrorless camera and DSLR video.

Features and Benefits

  • Protect your camera with the precision-machined aluminum cage
  • Enjoy exceptional stability and torque resistance
  • Easy balancing with built-in multi-axis balance adjustments
  • Wireless-ready – enables second person to pull focus remotely (just add the wireless handheld remote, sold separately)
  • Create cinema-style 15mm rail-based rigs with the optional rail mount block
  • Add a standard microRemote fingerwheel – with the built-in fingerwheel port, you can still use the onboard motor with a standard Redrock fingerwheel for cinema-style rigs like shouldermount or jib/crane use (external fingerwheel purchased separately)
  • Switch quickly to your gimbal – the Scout dovetail is compatible with DJI Ronin-M™ gimbal, just slide it in and you’re ready to go
  • Unique Expanded and Compact modes for better handheld and cine-style rigs
  • Keep it simple with integrated battery for powering the microRemote using Canon LP-E6 and compatible batteries
  • Accessorize your rig with 2 included cold shoe mounts

 

There are two different bundles for the Scout, both of which are discounted for a limited time during their pre-order:

Scout – HS – $799 $595
