Sony Alpha cage designed for the Sony A7S camera. The cage is designed to give easy access to the control buttons, the side outputs and the battery compartment; which is an important thing when you are shooting. You will not waste any time removing the camera from the cage to access the memory card or to change the battery. An important feature of this cage is the micro-HDMI cable protector lock on the side to secure the use of your HDMI 4K cable. By leaving access open to the hot shoe on top of the camera, you can mount different accessories. This cage is compatible with the Sony XLR-K2M audio unit, so you can have great sound for your videos. There’s also another hot shoe on the top of the cage available for accessory attachments.
The cage is easy to assemble and disassemble and you don’t need to remove any parts of it when you want to install the camera. The camera is fixed with a ¼-20 screw with the threaded hole under it, and the position is secured with the back and the sides of the cage so it will not move forward when equipped with a heavier lens. You can also attach a delta adapter plate underneath the cage to mount the cage on a quick release and easily change from a tripod to a handheld setup. In addition to having access to all camera controls, you also have easy access to the lens release button. The support between the lens and the camera grip is designed to anticipate a clearing for the fingers when the camera is handheld, for an ergonomic grip. The cage features several ¼-20 and 3/8-16 threaded holes for attachments and is made from CNC machined aluminum.
The Black Liquorice Candy DSLR Handle from SHAPE is a compact, ergonomic top handle that can be attached to any camera with a standard cold shoe mount. It is made of CNC aluminum and features left and right angle adjustment. It also ffers 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16 threaded accessory mounting threads.
This pair of SHAPE 15 mm Aluminum Rods (10″) connect into your camera rig, extend it, and let you add various SHAPE and third-party accessories compatible with 15 mm rods. With these two rods and with a few fundamental accessories, you can most certainly even begin building your own rig from scratch. The rods are each 15 mm in diameter, 10 inches long, hollow, non-threaded, and made of reliable aluminum coated with a clear finish.
Quick Release Rod Base System
The cage is connected to its base via the new SHAPE Quick Release Rod Base System using a specifically designed 15 mm rod bloc system for the optical center of the Sony A7R III camera. It allows quick mounting and dismounting of the camera and the cage can easily snap in and be quickly removed from its 15 mm LW base by pressing the release button at the rear of the mount for handheld shooting.
