A week ago, I happened to be in San Luis Obispo, California. I was happily surprised to find out that SLO is home to Photo & Video accessory maker Really Right Stuff. I had a contact from NAB, called them up, and they were nice enough to invite me down to have a look at their facility.
RRS is very well known in the Photographic world, but they’ve been making Video specific products for a few years now too. As you’ll see in the video, they are now expanding into the Cinema accessories world. They are making a “mini dovetail” system that builds on their Photographic mounts and clamps. Does the world need another standard to join the ARRI dovetail and 3 different rod standards? I think there is a possible niche there for smaller rigs, and they undeniably make beautiful
gear stuff. I’ll let you be the judge.
On a side note, these are the kind of reports that I hope to do more of for this blog. I thank Holly, Joe and the rest of the crew at RRS for the access.
