    Comments about SHAPE Cage for Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera:

    The Shape cage fits perfectly. It has a sleek industrial feel that offers many different options for moutning and connecting.

    Most of all it portects the compact pocket camera!

    Comments about SHAPE Cage for Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera:

    This cage looks great in the photo doesn't it?
    Unfortunately there are a lot of quirks that keep this cage from becoming useful.
    Pros:
    +More 1/4" mounting options than you can imagine plus the shoe is included on it.
    +Secure and solid with a plate to lock in the camera.
    Cons:
    - The plate in the back will not close if you have a magnetic strip for viewfinders around the screen of the cam. This is a biggie.
    - The metal is coated in a strange gloss that sticks to the hands. It's a very uncomfortable texture that is hard to describe.
    - The perfect prism shape is not actually that beneficial as the whole thing feels awkward in my hands.
    Overall, few people that held the camera in this cage liked it. I eventually had to exchange it for another similar product.
