Redrock Micro is releasing a new line of configurations on it's website called 'nano DSLR Rigs', targeted for lightweight support DSLR rigs. Still a bit too expensive for something as simple as a handle or two, but these parts are designed to be compatible with more Redrock gear as you grow. Information from their website is posted below, you can find their storefront for the Redrock Micro nano DSLR rigs here.
Product Description: nano DSLR rigs are compact, economical rigs designed for maximum value and discreet shooting. These rigs are a great value for photojournalism, travel, and documentary style HDSLR shooting, or as a great entry level rig, easily upgradeable to additional features found in our DSLR handheld, shouldermount, and studio configurations.
Brendan Cusker over at ENDmedia caught a few posts on Cheesycam about the new Express35 rigs showing up in DSLR world. In the description of Brendan's video he states he needed a run and gun type stabilizer that will allow him to shoot in clubs along with support for a Follow Focus system. Working with owner Chris over at Express35, here's the configuration they came up with to suit his shooting style. It looks like handles off to the sides provide principles of a Fig Rig stabilizer while keeping things quite compact. Bottom rails on the rig are there to support the 'future' Follow Focus system. This looks to resemble the popular Redrock Micro Captain Stubling DSLR bundle, except that even after a Follow Focus system this custom ENDmedia / Express35 rig will only be about 1/3 the price.

Nice config guys, and excellent demo of the unit, looks pretty stable. Feel free to contact Express35 and make sure to put in a good word about Cheesycam and ENDmedia.
[Update] This rig is now offered with a shoulder pad, upgraded HD Handles, upgraded knobs, and optional counterweight.
If you're wondering if the above video is legit, it sure seems like it. The manufacturer is found at this website at https://www.plcelectronicsolutions.com. If you're thinking about getting something like this, get ready to dish out over $1500.00 for just the Receiver. Which means you still need the lens gears, the motor, and of course iPhone not included. I think everyone might be better off going with the the new RedRock Wireless Follow Focus seen at NAB.
