Dallas, TX and Hollywood, CA - Redrock Micro, the recognized leader in affordable professional cinema accessories, is now taking pre-orders for Eclipse. Eclipse is the new generation of equipment for small crews and solo operators to get the great shots that often requires larger crews and deeper expertise.
Achieving the shots of Big Crew Productions
"Whatever the crew size, everyone wants to create compelling stories and have high production values," said James Hurd, Chief Revolutionist for Redrock Micro. "If you have limited people, things like keeping your subject focus or being able to frame accurately on tricky angles end up ruining shots or delaying production. The Eclipse product family solves these top camera operating challenges and more. The results is less focus on the gear and more on the shot."
Unlocking the Small Crew Potential
The Eclipse products focus on solving common everyday issues for camera operators, and make shoots not only more productive but also more enjoyable:
• Hālo Solo - Automatically keep your subject in focus at all times while maintaining creative focus control
• Orbit monitor positioning system - Automatically positions your monitor to face you in real-time. Comfortably frame shots at any angle, especially when using gimbal stabilizers
• Atlas Motors - Precision control of focus, iris, and zoom with a system compact enough to keep on your camera all the time
• Navigator 7-in-1 Command Module - Control gimbal, camera, lens, and more from one hand without ever needing to set down your rig
The first ever drone-ready lens control motors
Eclipse products are also the first to fully incorporate s.bus for use in aerial cinematography. Operators can now make on-the-fly adjustments to camera and lens settings without landing the drone, with minimal added weight, and with the full range of their RC transmitter.
"Quadrocopter has been delivering aerial cinematography solutions for over 6 years," said Karsten Carlson, COO for Quadrocopter LLC based in Montana. "We are really excited about Redrocks new products. These simple, streamlined and light weight systems will make it easier to operate and get better footage, particularly adding camera and lens controls while in flight. We look forward to educating customers and offering integrated solutions that include Redrock."
EclipseNet: The first complete view of your camera rig and accessories
All Eclipse products work on EclipseNet: a network of new technologies and communications that propel camera production into the future. Products connect and communicate to each other to share resources like power, show real-time status and alerts, and have configurable controls rather than hard-coded buttons. EclipseNet supports and translates between the most important protcols including WiFI, RF, Bluetooth, s.bus, PWM/PPM, and CAN.
