The Cage for Blackmagic Pocket Camera with Handle and Baseplate from SHAPE gives filmmakers and videographers the added stability, protection, and connectivity needed to get their Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera ready for video production use. It features a cage, Black Liquorice Candy DSLR Handle, baseplate, and two 8" 15mm rods. All parts are constructed from CNC machined aluminum, providing durability while remaining lightweight at only 1.6 pounds.
The cage offers additional protection for your Blackmagic Pocket Camera and provides a shoe mount and several 1/4"-20 threaded holes along the top and sides of the cage for attaching an electronic viewfinder, monitor, or other accessories. To insert the camera in the cage, simply unscrew the two black knobs in the rear of the cage to release the sliding backdoor. The camera then slots snuggly inside. The Pocket Camera's battery door remains unobstructed when in the Pocket Cage, allowing for easy SD card and battery changes.
Once in the cage, the camera attaches to the baseplate via a 1/4"-20 thumb screw. The baseplate provides support for 15mm rod pairs, which are locked and adjusted using the ratcheted knob on the side of the baseplate. This allows you to use a follow focus, matte box, or other 15mm rod accessories. A 1/4"-20 threaded hole on the bottom of the baseplate lets you attach a tripod plate.
Shape's Black Liquorice Candy DSLR Handle attaches to the shoe mount on the top of the cage and gives you a solid top handle for operating and transporting the camera. It features left and right angle-adjustment and additional 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads.
