    Solid Build

    By Mike

    Comments about Wooden Camera Quick Kit for Medium DSLR Camera:

    The quality of this cage is phenomenal. Solid build and the weight helps the sensor peform better when running handheld. Plenty of holes for attachments. You can't go wrong with this one.

      Comments about Wooden Camera Quick Kit for Medium DSLR Camera:

      this product is great! It holds the camera very well. The only criticism I have for it, is that the directions are not very clear and it takes a while to put together. It also is hard to interchange parts sometimes. To me the fact that it holds my camera safely is more important than risking a loose point for the sacrifice of convenient interchangeability.

          This cage, while not a full "cage" fits beautifully on my Canon 6D and Canon 60D. I have full and easy access to the battery compartment and to the SD card slots.
          I like the fact that I can quickly remove the camera from my rails component without having to remove the rig itself. Plenty of 1/4-20 holes ready for accessories!

          Yes, this cage kit is expensive, but you get what you pay for. And in this case you get a very solid, very well built cage. I use it with a 5D mkiii and it has functioned beautifully.

            This is an extremely practical accessory for DSLR shooting. It protects the camera body and speeds up my workflow on set. The quick release plate is genius, there are multiple points to attach other accessories like monitors and having a handle to carry the camera is a pleasure!

              Comments about Wooden Camera Quick Kit for Medium DSLR Camera:

              I really like this camera cage and quick release. It fits my Nikon D800 perfectly. I have this D800 as a dedicated video camera so I never take it out of it's cage. I use it with the Atomos Ninja 2. I film a lot with this setup and so far have had no problems at all. The build quality is excellent. I had a few questions and Ryan at Wooden camera answered my emails within a few minutes. I gave it four stars because of cost. If it was a little cheaper I would have given it five star.
