DSLR Cinema Kits

The DSLR Cinema Bundle is a custom configuration put together by the team at Pittsburghlenses that turns any DSLR into a full-featured cinema camera.  In it’s base configuration it also includes a complete shoulder rig making it useable on a tripod as well as in a hand held configuration.
