The SHAPE Panasonic Lumix S1R/S1 cage is targeted at filmmakers, videographers and photographers who want a simple, hassle-free and ergonomic cage design that really works. Specifically designed for the Panasonic Lumix S1R/S1 cameras, the form-fitting cage offers additional protection and securely locks the camera to the cage. It also provides easy access to all controls and ports as well as multiple attachment points for accessories.
The SHAPE Panasonic Lumix S1R/S1 Cage enables easy access to all the camera’s features such as the control buttons, the side outputs, the memory card, the battery compartment and the lens release button, allowing you to save time while shooting. Further, the support between the lens and the camera grip is designed to anticipate a clearing for the fingers when the camera is handheld, allowing an ergonomic grip. You can install the camera in the cage with a ¼-20 screw integrated into the cage, with the ¼-20 Allen key secured under the cage with magnets. The bottom of the cage provides the user with (4) ¼-20 and (1) 3/8-16 threaded holes for quick release tripod plate attachment. The position is secured to the back and sides of the cage, so it doesn’t move forward when equipped with a heavier lens. You can also attach a delta plate adapter underneath the cage to mount it on a quick release plate to rapidly switch from a tripod to a handheld setup.
Additionally, all the doors and latches are fully operable when the camera is in the cage. Its easy-to-use and clever design enables you to operate the camera without having to remove the cable doors, and the strap hooks can remain attached to the camera while inserted in the cage. It is also equipped with an effective cable retainer system for all three of the left side cables to secure their use. The cage is also compatible with a full-sized HDMI cable protector lock to secure the use of your HDMI 4K cable. By leaving an open access to the hot shoe on top of the camera, you can install the Panasonic audio unit. You can mount many accessories using several mounting options including (1) cold shoe mount located on the top of the cage as well as (2) Arri Standard 3/8″-16 anti-rotating hole pattern and ¼-20 threaded mounting holes. Made from CNC machined aluminum, the cage allows the camera to be held securely in place and restricts it from rotating by being attached with two anti-rotating tabs at the front.
