this video was shot with the Sony A7r and the kit lens in 1080/24p
The Panasonic GH4 is currently the most powerful video tool you can get in a hybrid camera.

Check out the video for the $29.99 solution and get all the links to the products shown in the video after the break
To protect the cables and connecter I used part of a punctured road tube and home made rubber bands from punctured mountain bike tubes. You can also use velcro to attach the unit, I prefer the rubber bands in case I need to replace something on set.
I got my splitter cable here on ebay from this USA seller.
I got my brackets here on ebay.
