A solid rig starts with a solid foundation. If you're shooting with the Canon EOS C100, C300, or C500 Shape has introduced a new baseplate system. Here's a video overview of their new product along with a new EVF mount.
Made specifically for the Canon EOS C100, C300, C500 cameras, the new Shape baseplate provides a smaller, lighter setup solution expandable to a more elaborate setup.
Features a pair of 15mm rods that are 12” long through the length of the baseplate Attaches underneath the camera with 4 x M4 screws (included) OR with 3/8” 16 and 1/4” 20 screws (included). SHAPE ratchet keys located on the both sides of the BASE PLATE can be tighten of loosen quickly to reposition the 12" 15mm rods.
Can be transformed into a full shoulder rig or can be used as a studio baseplate. Shape recommends the PAPARAZZI I HANDLE ROD BLOC for fixations such as EVF, external monitors, microphone, etc. For more information visit http://www.ShapeWLB.com
The Canon C300 needs no introduction. Initially the $20K number came up somewhere during it's announcement, and it appeared Canon failed to bring a solid camera to market at a decent price point. Now product pages are showing the number is officially just under $16K (body only). [Thanks Omar].
Sure it's not a 4K camera, but hard working fellows can throw a camera like this in to their current workflow and get projects done without fuss. Compared to all the equipment you'll require to get started with a basic RED Scarlet package, that price is a little easier on the eyes. Surprisingly it's the same price whether you choose the EF or PL mount C300. B&HPhotovideo.com is already taking pre-orders following the link (click here).

BTW, there's also two Canon CN-E Lenses available in both EF and PL mounts. A 14.5-60mm and 30-300mm lens that will set you back over $42,000 dollars (each). Here's the good news though, if you opt in for that EF mount, it might just work on your Canon T2i too..(joking guys...joking)
