The U-Boat Direct Mount Canon 5D MKII from iDC Photo Video is a dedicated video cage for the Canon 5D MKII camera. It delivers a simple, elegant way to shoot HDSLR footage for photojournalists, documentary filmmakers, skiers, snowboarders--anyone looking for a quick, lightweight way to use an HDSLR rig. The baseplate allows immediate access to the battery door for fast battery changes without taking the camera from the video cage.

If you want to use the Canon battery grip with this set-up, optional 7" handles are available. An optional viewfinder is available which attaches directly to the U-Boat baseplate. The viewfinder is only compatible with this product, and the viewfinder may not be used when using the camera's battery grip.

The top Bridge Plate with the Tall Cold Shoe and Handle make low-angle video capture a snap. You can also add the optional adjustable-length iDC U-Boat Shoulder Brace for hand-held work. The arm functions as a pan-handle when the U-Boat cage is mounted to your tripod.

This cage is ideal for attaching accessories to your video-capable DSLR camera and makes a terrific second-camera cage. Mount the U-Boat to a Tripod via any Quick-Release Adapter Plate which accepts industry standard 1/4"-20 mounting options. This video cage quickly disassembles for very compact packing. Made in the USA.
