I know about RedRock's products, but there MUST be competitors out there that I'm unaware of, right?

I don't know, redrock stuff is pretty cheap. Any cheaper made and it'll come flatpacked and you'll have to build it yourself out of cardboard.

Shoot35: High quality British company, superior to redrock but in the same price range.

DFocus: Very affordable follow focus with zero play. Stiff and simple but never fails.

Camera Motion Research: makers of a stabilizer that outperforms the Steadicam merlin in every way. Easy setup and flawless motion stabilization for running up stairs, chase sequences etc.

Video Innovators: very cheap, very well made shoulder rest with firm thick pad that makes Zacuto look laughably inadequate. Make sure you get the bigger one with the foldable handle; without the handle to lock into your chest, it's worthless scrap.

CPM Film Tools: strong, lightweight, affordable rail systems.

There you have it. Oh, and the LCD VF is excellent as well.
