Edelkrone Pocket Rig DSLR Support Mini-Review


Edelkrne Pocket Rig

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.

We put the Pocket Rig on a Canon 5D Mark III and took it for a spin.

Canon Debuts the EOS 6D Full Frame DSLR

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.
