I'm looking into accessories for a future DVX. Cavision sent me this list. I think I would forego the options. Any more brand suggestions? Alternatives? Thoughts on the subject? Maybe I'll rent. Just don't want to.

Needed:
MB413B-2 - 4x4 bellows matte box - 445.00
RS-15IIM - Rods support system - 190.00
ARR1385 - Rubber adapter ring - 10.00
AR85-72 - Conical ring - 35.00
MBF-5P - French flag - 50.00

Optional Accessories:
MBF-4S - Side flags - 30.00 each
RS15HD - Dual handgrips - 89.00
RFF-15B - Follow focus - 998.00
RS15SP3 - Shoulder pad - 120.00

Thanks!

Siders are nice to have. Frankly, all that stuff would be nice to have if you can afford it.
The follow focus is more worth getting because although it's not marked, the DVX focus ring is calibrated and repeatable.

Hi,

I don't think most of those things would save you quality, so much as time and convenience. Nothing there does what can't be done with a low cost clip on mattebox, some blackwrap, and the inbuilt focus ring. It just allows you to work more quickly, which might in itself give you more time to concentrate on the more artistic concerns of the shot.

But yes, have it all if you want to splurge.
