Redrock Micro launched the new ultraCage DSLR and ultraBase support for video-enabled DSLR cameras. The ultraCage DSLR has been called an essential accessory for converting the DSLR camera body into a movie-making production powerhouse.

Video DSLRs have arrived as legitimate filmmaking tools. Groundbreaking cameras like the Canon 5D MKIII and the new Nikon D800 deliver advanced movie features and outstanding results. However, the form factor of DSLRs severely limits the stability of shots and the ability to adapt accessories that are commonplace for high-quality filmmaking.

Comfortably carry one or two D-SLRs with lens right on your backpack, where you can reach them easily and quickly – that's the ingenious idea behind the BACKPACK STRAP by SUN-SNIPER.

SUN-SNIPER's newest innovation solves the problem common to many hikers, mountain climbers, photo journalists and nature photographers - people who carry a backpack and need to have their camera nearby and ready to go in an instant. Instead of having to carry a backpack and a separate camera strap, owners of the BACKPACK STRAP can simply use their backpacks to transport their ready-to-shoot cameras. The SUN-SNIPER BACKPACK STRAP is fastened directly to the backpack. The backpack strap cushion evenly distributes the weight of the camera and lens, ensuring that your back is treated gently. The integrated SHOCK-ABSORBER – another highly praised SUN-SNIPER specialty – absorbs additional jolts and vibrations, making carrying equipment up to 5 kg a pleasure.
