(New York--February 2, 2011) Digital media firm WaCru announces the WaCru DSLR Cage™, a camera accessory gear support and stabilization platform for the new breed of still camera-HD video hybrids.
The WaCru DSLR Cage™ is a simple and elegant design, strong yet lightweight, that allows cinematographers to easily attach DSLR accessories such as Audio Recorders, Wireless Microphone Receivers, Shock Mounts and on-camera lights, with 1/4” or 3/8” screws and bolts readily available in hardware stores. The WaCru DSLR Cage™ can be mounted on a Tripod or Monopod or used hand-held as a run’n’gun camera stabilization device.
Located in New York City, WaCru is the freelance “brand” of filmmaker/musician/instructional technologist David A. Ludwig. “In searching for a device that would allow me to mount accessories to use with my DSLR, I found the marketplace filled with rigs that were too complicated, too expensive, or both. And the DIY rigs looked, well, DIY. So I designed my own. I have the top and bottom bars fabricated by a company in Michigan, and I get the foam grips from a supplier in Washington state. The handles are made from hardware store parts, 100% Made in USA, by a filmmaker for filmmakers!”
The product sells for $239 and is available now at Amazon.com.
