Your cat may like them, and if you have a touch of OCD you might enjoy unraveling a nice ball of wires to calm your nerves. However, disconnect a power cable on a light or your HDMI cable during a shoot and it could cost you a shot which could cost you a job.Especially for the HDSLR shooters, the myriad of wired accessories continues to grow and so do the chances of you getting tied up knots. Electric tape or grip tape work, but they aren’t very dependable, and they make your cables and rig sticky. There’s the velcro ties, but they’re like socks that some how vanish without a trace. So what’s the solution? Enter Redrock Micro’s microTies.
microTies can be used on any standard 15mm rod and has inside and outside channels for wrangling three or more cables. microTies work with almost all cables (video, audio, power, data) and reduces the chance of snags, accidental disconnects or cable fatigue due to bending or repeated insertions. The microTie also has an added special channel to hold a grease pencil for a follow focus.
microTies are made of ultra lightweight aerospace composites that add virtually no weight and do not scratch other surfaces. microTies can be quickly attached, repositioned, and removed to speed rig changes.
