Build up your DSLR or mirrorless camera for professional video and cinema production with the medium Manfrotto Camera Cage. The cage itself surrounds your camera on three sides, adding a measure of protection to DSLR cameras like Canon's 5D, 6D, and 7D series, as well as Nikon's D300, D500, and D800 series. 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes line the top and sides of the cage for securing accessories such as articulating arms. The top of the cage leaves the space above the camera's accessory shoe unobstructed for mounting audio accessories, such as XLR adapters. An HDMI cable clamp is integrated with the cage's vertical post to protect the camera's HDMI port from cable snags, as well as all necessary mounting screws and an articulating wooden top handle.
Reversible Top Handle
Included with the cage, the reversible top handle has a wooden handgrip which provides additional ways to comfortably handhold your camera. A cold shoe at the top can be used to mount a microphone, monitor, or other camera-top accessories. The handle folds down when packing your bag and can be alternately secured onto the left vertical rod for a secondary grip.
Manfrotto Quick Release Compatibility
The base of the cage is a Manfrotto quick release dovetail which can directly secure your camera to Manfrotto standard quick release plates and tripod heads. Quick release functionality works the same as existing Manfrotto plates. Simply turn the thumbscrew and depress the release pin to slide the plate backwards out of the base.
Built-In Lens Adapter Support
A built-in lens adapter support system is integrated into the base. This provides extra security when attaching lens adapters with 1/4"-20 threads on the bottom, like the separately available Wooden Camera PL adapters and most Metabones adapters.
15mm LWS Rod Support
With the seamless addition of Wooden Camera's Unified DSLR 15mm Baseplate, you can add 15mm LWS rods for accessorizing your DSLR or mirrorless camera. Additionally, the Baseplate adds ARRI dovetail compatibility while maintaining all quick release functionality of the DSLR cage itself.
