Its middle cost system and I think its compromise between quality and price. But as always there are many other combinations from another producers, the choose is big...

* The Gini DLSR RIG K1 (more info at http://magic-spider.0675.or.kr ) or find it on ebay
* ProAim Matte Box with french flags - everywhere on ebay
* D|Focus - follow focus ( more info at http://www.dfocussystem.com )
* HDMI input monitor 669HB - Lilliput 7" 669GL-70NP/CH - on ebay too
* ZOOM H1 for optional sound recording (not using always)

No problems with matte box...2 frames for 4x4 filters, french flags seems to be OK, and quality is OK. I know its not as good as shoot35 matte box or other expensive matte boxes ... but its twice cheaper.

i've been looking at the ProAim stuff as well... Seems great for the price.

It's not. It's poor junk from overseas with horrible quality metals. Purchase locally from somebody like express35 or something.

Personally, I'd mount the monitor on the hotshoe and use that massive articulating arm to get the Zoom recorder infront of the camera more. Seems like it'd pick up a lot of your focusing noises where it is.
