RED book with a vengeance its cameras Epic X, M and Scarlet arrives in January. These pretty boxes image in the hands you will quickly realize that in order to meet all your needs, we'll have to accessorize. So I decided to cause you to my choices, this article will be updated regularly as I am finalizing my choices based on the responses of different camera assistants I meet.
“Charlotte” our first Epic M arrived in June, her younger sister named “Brigitte” He joined us a few weeks.
My selection criteria are mainly based on the value / prices but also the relevance of these accessories.
After following the adventures of Brook Willard, DIT the last Spiderman, I ordered a first “top chease plate” … beautifully machined aluminum plate that you can do laser engraved with your logo.

To return to the RED accessories are often a price positioning not always consistent with the rest of their equipment but it's still good stuff.
The 2 other manufacturers that are must therefore include Wooden Camera home I found lots of interesting little things but I have not yet ordered.
To conclude therefore Element technica recently acquired by 3ality out a full range of accessories for the RED DSMC system (Epic & Scarlet)
Soon the action pictures on the set of “Macadam Baby” which begins next week.
