Product Highlights
  • Form-Fitting Cage and Baseplate
  • 15mm Rod Support on Top and Bottom
  • Secures C100 from Top and Bottom by 1/4"
  • Includes Double-Tap Bottom Plate
  • Supports Optional 19mm Rod Plates

Redrock Micro's ultraCage Black for Canon C100 is a form-fitting cage and baseplate with 15mm rod support on the top and bottom. It features a 1/4" screw on the bottom of the top plate, so it secures the camera from both the top and bottom. A Double-Tap plate is included to replace the bottom plate that comes standard with the C100. The Double-Tap plate offers two mounting threads for attaching the camera to the cage, whereas the C100's plate provides only one.

The cage covers only the front portion of the camera, leaving all controls and ports free for use. Its design allows the camera to sit firmly and withstand torque and weight. The baseplate features 1/4" and 3/8" tripod-mount threads and is also threaded on the bottom to support optional third-party plates for mounting 19mm rods. The baseplate already has the correct height and mounting points for both 15mm and 19mm rods. The cage sides have 1/4" and 3/8" mounting threads, and the top plate features 1/4" threads for optional top handles and other accessories.

    Comments about Redrock Micro ultraCage Black for Canon C100:

    I have an abundance of Redrockmicro tinker toys. That is pretty much what they are. You can configure just about any kind of rig you need with their stuff. It is flexible, affordable, and professional. I bought the ultra cage for my newly purchase C100 and it is pretty nice. I also bought the adapter to mount my Canon accessory handle. My major gripe is that it blocks the mic connector if you want to put a Rode Videomic on it. The external connector is fine if you use the top handle with the built in mic or need the xlr connectors. It is pretty heavy in my opinion, but rugged. It also gives you some places to mount monitors, a Ninja, or whatever you might want. I wouldn't call it an essential item, but if you want a steadier hand held rig, shoulder rig, or follow focus rig it it pretty handy if pricey, but not totally necessary.

    Comments about Redrock Micro ultraCage Black for Canon C100:

    I got this thing in nice hopes of giving my C100 some top and bottom rails. I thought the form fitting nature would be perfect for me since I wanted to go from a rails system for studio work, to still having a plethora of mounting options when going handheld. What I ended up with was a $ paperweight.First, when I got the unit, parts were missing. The part to attach the top of the camera to the top of the cage simply wasn't there. I called B&H to get it sorted out, but they said it was an optional component. How could that be? I started thinking it needed a part from my camera itself, so I start unscrewing things from the top handle that came with the C100. That wasn't it. And when I go to screw it back...well let's just say I ended up ruining my C100 top handle. I guess that's my fault in retrospect.Regardless, I contacted Red Rock directly and they admitted parts were missing on a few shipments. So they sent me the part for free. That was nice. Plus one star.For studio work, it was fine. That is until one of the rod clamps snapped. I don't understand how this was possible. I wasn't over tightening or anything. The top right rod clamp just snapped. As in the plastic (yes, there's plastic) the clamp screws in to just shattered. So now the top right rod slot is useless. I can't tighten anything down anymore. I just don't know how this could've happened except for either bad luck or poor craftsmanship.And handheld work? The unit by itself is pretty light, but somehow when you put the camera and this together...I guess it strains the wrist too much or something. That's before even mounting anything. I don't know. But I feel like I'm carrying a boulder now. Supported by my wrist. It's very uncomfortable. So while those mount points may be tempting, doing so just isn't practical. Maybe if you have arms of steel (sadly, I don't), or gunstock rig of sorts it will work better.I'm honestly surprised this thing didn't work out. Red Rock has always surpassed my expectations. Maybe it was just the missing parts, ruining of my equipment as a result, and the fragility of the plastics that left a bad taste in my mouth which made me dislike everything about this thing. And now I can't even return it because it broke on me, without so much as a simple twist of a thumb screw. The only saving grace is that customer support (Red Rock's support, not B&H who misled me) sent me the missing part. But now? I have a $500 paperweight.
