The Lanparte Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera Cage outfits your camera with the fundamental components needed to build a complete video production rig. It consists of a 15mm rod baseplate, half-cage, top handle, and a pair of 11.87″ long 15mm rods to support optional accessories such as a matte box, follow focus, shoulder pad, and hand grips. Also included is a shorter 7.87″ 15mm rod that attaches to the top of the cage, and a rod-mount 1/4″-20 screw adapter for attaching an EVF, monitor, recorder, or other accessory. The design of the cage provides unobstructed access to all camera controls, ports, and the battery/SD card compartment.
The Pocket Cinema Camera is secured in the cage via top and bottom 1/4″-20 screws. A custom dovetail design fits around the bottom of the camera to prevent unwanted twisting or while operating. The half-cage offers 1/4″-20 mounting threads along the left-sided support arm, while leaving the right side of the camera open. The top handle is multi-functional, featuring a cold shoe, a perpendicularly oriented 15mm rod port, and a push-button that lets you rotate the handle 180°. By rotating the top handle the forward position, you can better balance front-heavy loads. The single 7.87″ 15mm rod slot into the top handle’s rod port, allowing for additional accessory attachment, as well as the included rod-mount 1/4″-20 screw adapter.
