As you may have seen on Videomaker.com, we recently got our hands on the Pocket Rig by Edelkrone. At Videomaker, we're strong believers that if you're shooting on a DSLR, support is essential. Since the bodies are so small, these are cameras where the center of gravity is often in the lens. Combine that with the fact that the grip is vertical rather than horizontal, and you have yourself a recipe for wobbly video if you choose to shoot hand-held. We put the Pocket Rig on a Canon 5D Mark III and took it for a spin.

'Tis the season for camera announcements! Follow along if you can. Canon debuted the EOS 6D at Photokina today, and for video shooters, this may or may not be terribly exciting news. The good news is the EOS 6D is Canon's smallest, and most affordable full frame camera yet. It appears to have most of the video features found in the 5D Mark III, including 1080p at 30fps h.264 footage, all for $1,400 less money. While you can attach an external microphone, it appears to be lacking the option to connect headphones for live audio monitoring.

I run an educational program that teaches beginning video production among other things, and we'd like to get an external microphone for our Canon DSLR. Something incredibly versatile would benecessary. We record bands as well as interviews, indoor and outdoor.
Here's a link to a concert we did. I was pleased with the actual footage, I'd like to upgrade the sound quality. Usually a feed out of the sound system isn't an option.
We are seaking DSLR video cameraman who are active on this forum to test ALZO special DSLR rig HDMI and stereo audio short cords. Please respond to email@example.com if you are interested in testing and reporting results.
