M2e Overview

The M2 Encore attaches to your existing DV or HD camera without modifications. Once installed and setup, you attach 35mm still photographic (Nikon, Canon, etc.) or motion picture lenses to achieve true film-style footage.

The M2 Encore works with other Redrock accessories including the microMatteBox and microFollowFocus to deliver a complete cinema rig at a fraction the cost of comparable solutions.

Collimating Lens Mount

The M2e comes standard with a collimating lens mount that allows you to easily and precisely set adjust your adapter so your lens distance markings and infinity focus are precise. All new M2 Encore adapters are shipped from the factory pre-collimated.
