The SHAPE Cage with 15 mm Lightweight Rod System for Panasonic GH5 includes a form-fitting cage, REVOLT top handle grip, quick release plate, adjustable Rod Bloc system, and a pair of 10″ 15 mm rods. The cage wraps securely around the GH5 camera body, preventing unwanted rotation while providing an abundance of 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16 accessory threads. The camera is fixed to the cage by a 1/4″-20 screw under the unit, and the position is secured with the back and sides of the cage, so it will not move forward when equipped with a heavy lens.
GH5 cage and top handle
The Panasonic GH5 cage from SHAPE is a formfitting, lightweight, robust cage built and designed to protect the Panasonic LUMIX GH5 camera. It wraps securely around the camera body, preventing unwanted rotation while providing an abundance of 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16 threads for accessories. The camera is fixed to the cage by a 1/4″-20 screw under the unit; and the position is secured with the back and sides of the cage, so it will not move forward when equipped with a heavy lens. The cage provides quick and easy access to the lens release button, battery door, and memory card. It features an open access on top for mounting accessories onto the GH5’s electronic hot shoe. A second built-in shoe on the side offers an additional accessory mounting point. The cage for the Panasonic GH5 is designed to be compatible with the full-size HDMI cable protector lock on the side, to secure the use of your HDMI 4K cable. Also, the baseplate section of the cage is designed with a removable Metabones® Support Bracket. When there is no Metabones® adapter, the ¼-20 screw is captive so you don’t have to remove it from the cage and simply slide the bracket from under the cage.
The SHAPE Top Handle Cold Shoe for DSLR Camera is CNC machined from aluminum and features a wooden finger grip made from Canadian maple. The handle mounts onto the shoe of your camera or cage and can be inserted to face forward or rearward. It incorporates a total of (15) 1/4″-20 threaded mounting holes with ARRI anti-twist mounting threads along the length of the handle and (2) cold shoe mounts, one at the front of the handle and one at the back. There is also (1) EVF mount bracket to attach our 15 mm rod clamp (15CTH) or our Push-button arm View Finder Bracket (EVVF).
Quick release baseplate and rod bloc system
The adjustable Rod Bloc system allows for optimal adjustment of your camera’s optical center, matte box and follow focus. Its travel height can be adjusted with the help of an Allen key. The included 10″ rods can be inserted into the Rod Bloc system to attach more equipment. The Quick Release Plate can be used as a table stand or can be attached to a tripod.
