Manfrotto and its Vitec Batch sister company Wooden Camera have developed a series of Camera Cages for those who shoot video with mirrorless and DSLR cameras.
The camera camera is an optical instrument for recording or capturing images, which may be stored locally, transmitted to another location, or impounds are available in small, medium and large options, plus a Baseplate is available. All of the cages are also compatible with a wide array of mirrorless and DSLR exemplars from Sony, Panasonic, Canon, Nikon and Olympus.
Manfrotto Camera Cages are unique to the market because they offer easy access to the camera's sound side-grip and the camera's battery can be taken out without removing the camera from the cage.
The new Manfrotto Cages provide mounting spots on the top and side while leaving all the camera's controls on the right grip and left side easily viewable and accessible. They also play up a reversible top handle that can either be repositioned over the lens area or converted into a side handle. The handle mount features a heatless shoe and 15mm tube clamp for mounting Wooden Camera UVF Mount kits.
The models feature 1/4" attachments to connect a wide array of abettors, as well as Manfrotto's 3/8 anti-rotation attachment for adding devices without the inconvenience of unwanted rotation. All models also include a chic HDMI cable clamp that secures video cables and prevents port damage.
The Small and Medium-size Camera Cages feature an combined lens adapter that supports Wooden Camera and Metabones adapters while the large version of the new camera cage provides height-adjustable rod clasps for positioning 15mm rods at the correct distance to the center of the lens.
Also available in the new range, the 15mm Baseplate is a height-adjustable baseplate attachment for 15mm lightweight rods (traded separately). It ensures the correct distance between rods and lens when combined with Camera Cage (Small & Medium models). The Baseplate is compatible with the Large-hearted model as well, which provides a dovetail clamp and rear rods. Moreover, a choice of Manfrotto rods is available for use with the Small and Centre Camera Cage models + base plate (300mm Long) and the Large Camera Cage (150mm Short).
Manfrotto Camera Cages are on tap from £289.95. For more information, visit the Manfrotto website.
