KCWtechnica MRK (Modular Rigging Kit) Stage I
I have been getting very interested in shooting video with my 7D but I really want to have all the toys. I want a shoulder mount, two-handed rig, a camera caddy, and everything else so that I can do any type of shot I want. The problem is, buying all of these individual components is horribly expensive, together it can set you back a couple of thousand dollars. I recently ran across a company making an entire new class of video DSLR components. KCWtechnica has a completely modular kit for under $1,000 that can be used to create all many of rigging setups.
The KCWtechnica Rigging System only uses major industry standard connection points. 5/16″, 3/8″, 1/4″, 5° incremental, 15mm & 19mm. KCWtechnica’s exclusive innovative clamps/converters allows using 15mm rods to 19mm to imperial standard rods.

The Stage 1 rigging kit is going on sale soon for $995 but until then they are taking pre-orders at only $845.75. While this may still sound like a lot of money, since it is a modular system, allowing you to build numerous configurations, the kit becomes very affordable instead of buying complete components for all of the different rigging designs.
