The Tehkron Cage Pro Powered Cage for GoPro HERO3/HERO3+ from XP PhotoGear is a camera cage that incorporates a powering system based on LP-E6 type batteries. The cage not only helps protect the camera, it provides a top handle to give you a wider range of hand-held shooting options. A series of 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded mounting points allow you to attach many standard video accessories directly to the cage, and a 62mm filter thread allows you to add on standard filters, such as polarizers and NDs.
The cage is designed to fit either the GoPro HERO3 or the HERO3+ and requires either camera be placed in the "original" HERO3 Skeleton Housing to ensure full compatibility.
- LP-E6-Based Power System
- Thanks to a battery compartment incorporated into the cage, you can use an LP-E6 type battery--the same battery used on many Canon DSLRs--to extend the battery life of your GoPro. Each LP-E6 type battery allows the camera to run for up to five hours per charge
- 62mm Filter Threading
- One limitation of standard GoPro housings is that special adapters are required to add filters. The Cage Pro features a 62mm filter thread allowing you to attach a wide range of standard photographic and video filters, including ND, polarizer, and effects filters. 1
- Top Handle
- Designed to make it easier to capture hand-held shots that would be difficult otherwise because of the nature of the GoPro housing, especially low-angle shots or shots that require the camera to be close to the ground. In addition, 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 holes tapped into the top and sides of the handle allow you to mount a variety of add-on accessories and can also be used for securing the camera to tripods, camera support equipment, or other structures
