Comments about Dot Line GearBox 2 Accessory Cage:

This is the second review about the Dot Line Gear Cage. I am writing about it because I love this device as much as I love video taping the events I get to tape. Audio, Lights, Camera...if you want to get another call from the client you better have it all. Today there is so much equipment in the inventory, and needless to say, we want it all; but, where do I put it, some of it is too heave for the hot shoe devices out there, oh well I guest I'lll have to do without it, can't afford a cage that the professionals use...Well, Dot Line did it!! See the attached picture I took on 11.11.2014---Also, I'm writing this because I help others from my own experiences, that you become better videographers and photographers!!

        Comments about Dot Line GearBox 2 Accessory Cage:

        I purchased my Dot-Line Accessory Cage after almost tearing off the hot shot on my video camera with additional equipment. First it tipped the camera forward with too much weight, then the 'Y' adapter changed the center of gravity with the additional light and audio transmitter. Reading several video magazines I then noticed this device called a 'cage'. However, after pricing cages across the board they were too much for my pocket. Then I came to the Dot-Line accessory cage, in expensive, well made and just want I needed. There was one point and I over came that with the purchase of two Impact Short Adapter Spigots, I did not like the frame resting on the camera and wanted more room for the movement of my figures.Dot-Line has produced a piece of equipment that I am very seriously considering the purchase of two of them for the price. This cage works with either the DSLR or a video camera; I've added more hot shoes and everyone who passes my camera stops and ask questions or adds comments about my professional equipment...

          Finally there's a well built cage that's affordable and sturdy. I'm primarily a run and gunner and after switching form a camcorder to DLSR, I needed a rig that I could add all my\h accessories to without breaking the bank or that looked cheesy. This rig is pretty solid, customization and is the foundation for my entire rig system now.

          They don't specify this in the details, but it comes with 2 15 inch rods and the adapter. That means you can attach a follow focus, matte box or anything else your heart desires.. Plenty of screw up top as well. One of my best all-time purchases.
