The Manfrotto Camera Cage has a robust design that protects your camera while providing multiple attachment points to add accessories like monitors, microphones, sound recorders for video production. The cage provides access to camera dials, buttons, ports and the hot-shoe for complete control with incredible flexibility. The large cage features height-adjustable 15mm rod clamps at the front to support follow focus units. A 15mm baseplate is available separately for the medium and small cages to add this functionality and all three cages support Manfrotto quick release heads and plate systems.
Available in Three Different Sizes
With a height adjustable design, the cages are available in three different sizes and can accommodate a range of different cameras from small mirrorless units like the Sony A6000 series all the way up to much larger DSLR’s like the Canon 1DC. Check the specifications tabs for more specific details.
The Manfrotto Camera Cage is available in the following sizes:
* Manfrotto Camera Cage – Small * Manfrotto Camera Cage – Medium * Manfrotto Camera Cage – Large
Folding and Reversible Top Handle
The cage includes a versatile and comfortable wooden handle that provides an additional way to hold your camera and can be setup to make low angle shooting easier. The handle can be positioned to face backward as well as forward, has a cold shoe for attaching additional accessories, and can be mounted on the side using the 15mm vertical rod of the cage. It even has a 15mm tube clamp to attach EVF’s or external monitors to your rig.
Multiple Mounting Points
Boasting several industry standard 1/4-inch and 3/8-inch threaded holes spaced out on the top, side and base of the cage allow you to mount a wide range of accessories to your rig. The top plate supports mounting accessories like the Manfrotto 244 Micro Arm with two anti-rotation attachment points.
Full Access to Camera Controls and HDMI Clamp
The half-cage design wraps around the left, top and bottom of your camera, leaving the right-hand side completely open to provide full access to the handgrip, controls, and memory cards slots of your camera. A height adjustable HDMI cable clamp mounted to the vertical rod ensures the HDMI cable stays connected while also protecting the port from damage.
Quick Release Dovetail Plate
The quick release on the base of the cage slides into the included dovetail receiver plate. This allows for rapid and easy mounting on Manfrotto standard quick release plates and tripod heads.
15mm Rod Support for Follow Focus
The Large Manfrotto Camera Cage has two 15mm front rod clamps with a height adjustable design that allows you to add a follow focus or matte box to the front of your rig. The Medium and Small Manfrotto Camera Cages can also support 15mm rod accessories with the optional 15mm Base Plate available separately.
