The Aptaris Universal XL Adjustable DSLR Cage from walimex is a height-adjustable camera cage for DSLR cameras. It protects the camera while providing multiple attachment points for included accessories such as a cold shoe and a handle, as well as available accessories. The cage is made from anodized aluminum for a smooth, corrosion resistant finish.
The cage features over two inches of height adjustment allowing you to use it with a variety of available DSLR cameras. Your camera mounts to the cage via a 1/4"-20 captive mounting screw, and two included stoppers can be mounted to the base to prevent your camera from twisting on the base. If your camera's hot shoe is vertically aligned with its mounting screw you can use the included hot shoe stabilizer to lock your camera to the cage using your cameras hot shoe, providing a second attachment point. The cage protects the camera body from the stress of attaching accessories directly to the camera. The included two-part handle attaches to the cage via rails, which can be positioned in many different configurations on the cage. The included cold-shoe adapter is likewise positionable in many different positions on the cage, providing you a wide range of flexibility in attaching accessories.
- The cage attaches securely to your camera with a 1/4"-20 threaded screw to the base of the unit, which features a rubberized mounting surface.
- The mounting screw rides in a channel, which provides you forward and back adjustment on the base. This allows you to adjust camera so that it presses against the removable stoppers and prevent the camera twisting on the base.
- The included hot shoe stabilizer allows you to attach the cage to your camera, using your cameras hot shoe for additional stability. Your camera must have a hot shoe that vertically lines up with the threaded mounting screw on your camera's base.
- The cage features multiple 1/4"-20 threaded mounting holes for attaching available accessories. Attaching accessories to to the cage instead of the camera body itself protects your camera body from stress caused by the weight of the accessories.
- A 3/8"-16 threaded mounting hole is included on the base of the cage, so you can attach it to a camera plate, tripod head, or the included rod module plate.
- The rod module plate allows the Universal XL to interface with available Aptaris accessories that allow you to mount 15m LWS rods, follow focus units, shoulder support rigs, and matte boxes.
