          Comments about Dot Line Habbycam DSLR Accessories Cage:

          Using it for amending the regular aluminum gear to keep the overall rig weight down. It's "tough enough", hoped the plastic was a little more "high impact" but considering the price really can't complain. Really, the only minor complaint is that the cheese plate nuts aren't captive (none of the nuts used by the knobs, etc, are) - I put some tape on them to keep them from falling out when they're not in use. Again, no complaints considering the price. A major discount from the prices elsewhere for the same product. Would certainly not pay more for this product than I did. Perfectly happy with it.

            I bought this product to experiment with dslr tripod based video recording. I use it to mount my camera, follow focus, digital recorder and lighting.It works as advertised and comes with a surprising amount of hardware. It took less than a half an hour to assemble.This for sure a lighter duty half cage but I expect it to be on my gear list for a long time.

                I ordered two of these systems. I could not get past step one to assemble. One of the systems did not include the (4) screws to put together two pieces. The other system included the (4) screws, but they were not the correct size. They quality control for this company is not good for a professional product.
                For two systems to not be complete, the cage itself might not be the best quality. I will pay more and get something better. I wanted this to work, for the price looked to be a good deal. But, the age old saying... "You get what you pay for."
