Panasonic Lumix GH6 Cage (GH6CAGE)
Made of CNC-machined aluminum, the cage is specifically designed for the Panasonic Lumix GH6 camera. The camera is mounted to the cage using a 1/4-20 screw. The cage is designed with several 1/4-20 threaded holes and seven 3/8″-16 threaded holes with anti-rotating Arri hole patterns. The design of the cage also allows easy access to all control buttons, side outputs, the memory card, the battery compartment, the lens release button and the camera hot shoe for the audio unit system. All doors and locks are fully usable when the camera is in the cage and its intelligent design allows you to operate the camera without having to remove the cable doors. In addition, the strap hooks can remain attached to the camera while being inserted into the cage. A detachable lock system to secure and hold in place your 4K FULL HDMI cable is included with the cage. The bottom of the cage has three 1/4-20 threaded holes to mount a quick release tripod plate to switch from a tripod to a shoulder configuration. The aluminum top handle included with the cage offers cold shoe mounting options for additional accessories. A second top handle can be added and attached on the sides of the cage for vertical shoots.
A 15mm LW rod baseplate system is included and attached underneath the cage with four M4 screws. A height adjustable Metabones® bracket is included at the front of the baseplate for additional support. The bottom of the baseplate has three threaded holes to attach quick-release tripod plates.
The SHAPE Quick handle rod bloc is a professional video stabilization accessory with 2 camera handle grips, each providing an individual rotation angle of 360°. You can attach the handle to the camera platform using a simple screw knob. A simple Push-Button located at the articulation allows easy attachment and removal. Combined with the anodized aluminum rod bloc, the quick handle offers composite camera support for all 15 mm rods. You can achieve precise positioning by sliding the Quick Handle along the rods and tightening the small red knob located on the Rod Bloc. The rod bloc is designed with 2 screw-threaded holes allowing the mounting of the Quick Handle.
SHAPE is well known for its patented Push-button handle, now used by so many professionals in the industry. The technology was developped to give filmakers quick and easy adjustment. By simply pressing the button, you are allowed a 360-degree rotation to place the handle in the best position for your use. Push, adjust, release, and then its lock.

It is designed with a 15 mm rod block on top allowing to hold 15 mm rods for camera and accessories to be attached. The screw knob allows to attach SHAPE counter-weight (PAD1, PADCW1). By adding extra male-female rods at the back, you can also attach a counter-weight behind the same rods. This way, your body can easily supports the weight of the camera and its accessories. The shoulder pad is also the perfect solution for switching rapidly from shoulder to tripod without having to remove the shoulder pad. It can remain on the camera rig permanently.

Use the compact SHAPE Follow Focus Kit with Single 15 mm Rod Clamp with your camera setup to make focus pulling easy. The modular design allows you to add and remove any of the components without screws or tools, and its small profile allows the addition of a matte box or accessories around your lens. At the core of the kit is a rubber, anti-slip follow focus wheels attached to a single aluminum 15 mm rod clamp. The clamp rotates to adjust to most lens sizes, and it's tightened by a locking lever. The clamp's rotation also allows the focus wheel to easily swing out of the way when changing lenses. Five drive gears are included to fit a variety of lens sizes: 0.5 MOD/78T, 0.6 MOD/64T, 0.8 MOD/38T, 0.8 MOD/43T, and 0.8 MOD/78T. The gears can be flipped from front to back to facilitate different lens configurations. A 49 mm rubber friction wheel is also included for the 0.5 MOD/78T gear which is most commonly used with DSLR lenses. For alternate fine-focus configurations, use the included speed crank or 11" whip, both of which attach to the center point of the knob. Four magnetic marking disks are included to attach to the focus wheel.
At the center of the knob, an ARRI-standard accessory port for attaching separately available accessories such as a whip or a speed crank;
All gears can be flipped to the front or back position which is helpful for compact lens configurations;
Two rotation points (one on the rod and one on the body) allowing you to get the follow focus perfectly aligned vertically on the side of the camera body;
Swing Arm Design allows you to simply pull the follow focus away from the lens for a quick lens change then you can push it back into place when you're ready;
A compact design takes little space, so you can still attach a matte box to the front;
Use the swing arm to properly align the follow focus and then you can tighten the thumbscrew on the bottom to keep it in place.
