Hi all.

Am starting on the DSLR video world, and have seen many manufacturers with indecent prices for gear, as you all might have (Zacuto, etc).
I wonder what are the best/affordable manufacturers of gear around, apart from the famous glittering, rainbowny and expensive ones?

I need to start with the MATTE BOX, I'm buying every month or so a Zeiss Prime (not the cinema ones), to use with my new Nikon D7000 (love it), setting up a lovely kit...
So, I wonder what matte boxes/brand would fit well with it, that could have an "universal" adaptor for the lens? As well as the follow focus and other gear, etc.

Believe its easy to choose a brand and stick to it until buy the bits of gear to mount a nice kit.

Thanks,
Flavio

I took a chance and ordered som reasonable priced (but new) gear from e**y. I realize there is much junk out there, but I found a brand that I will try.
Note: I just ordered and have not received it yet.

If you search for "Trusmt" you will find the line of products I am talking about.
