walimex Pro 19884 Overview

The Aptaris Universal XL Adjustable DSLR Cage from walimex is a height-adjustable camera cage for DSLR cameras. It protects the camera while providing multiple attachment points for included accessories such as a cold shoe and a handle, as well as available accessories. The cage is made from anodized aluminum for a smooth, corrosion resistant finish.

The cage features over two inches of height adjustment allowing you to use it with a variety of available DSLR cameras. Your camera mounts to the cage via a 1/4"-20 captive mounting screw, and two included stoppers can be mounted to the base to prevent your camera from twisting on the base. If your cameras hot shoe is vertically aligned with its mounting screw you can use the included hot shoe stabilizer to lock your camera to the cage using your cameras hot shoe, providing a second attachment point. The cage protects the camera body from the stress of attaching accessories directly to the camera. The included two-part handle attaches to the cage via rails, which can be positioned in many different configurations on the cage. The included cold-shoe adapter is likewise positionable in many different positions on the cage, providing you a wide range of flexibility in attaching accessories.

The cage attaches securely to your camera with a 1/4"-20 threaded screw to the base of the unit, which features a rubberized mounting surface.
The mounting screw rides in a channel, which provides you forward and back adjustment on the base. This allows you to adjust camera so that it presses against the removable stoppers and prevent the camera twisting on the base.
The included hot shoe stabilizer allows you to attach the cage to your camera, using your cameras hot shoe for additional stability. Your camera must have a hot shoe that vertically lines up with the threaded mounting screw on your camera's base.
The cage features multiple 1/4"-20 threaded mounting holes for attaching available accessories. Attaching accessories to the cage instead of the camera body itself protects your camera body from stress caused by the weight of the accessories.
A 3/8"-16 threaded mounting hole is included on the base of the cage, so you can attach it to a camera plate, tripod head, or the included rod module plate.
The rod module plate allows the Universal XL to interface with available Aptaris accessories that allow you to mount 15mm LWS rods, follow focus units, shoulder support rigs, and matte boxes.

question

Will this work with the Sirui VA-5 and Ty-70 mounting plates? Are the mounting plates at the bottom removeable so I can replace it with the Sirui Ty70?
Asked by: Henry Z.
Great Cage, light & minimal, treads spaceing is not compatible with Wooden camera or Small rigg, so make sure you get universal accessories from these brands if you want to add Nato Rails or need to have more than one 1/4 inch screw attached to the the cage. Asside from that I actually bought a second one for my B camera as I love it so much.

question

Do I need any additional accessories to make this compatible with my Manfrotto MVH500AH tripod head?
Asked by: Adam
All tripod heads have the 1/4 screw that goes into the camera's native tripod mount. This is the same size as the cheese grater style holes all over the Aptaris cage. You can mount any release plate, Manfrotto or Arca Swiss, to the bottom of the Aptaris cage. It'll sit above the tripod head regardless of size.

question

Will this cage work with the Sony A7SII +VG-C2EM ?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, this should work fine. The A7SII is about 2.7 inches high and the battery grip adds 2 inches to the unit, making it under 5 inches with the battery grip. The Walimex Aptaris Universal XL Adjustable DSLR Cage has a maximum interior of 5.27 , which means you'll have enough room for the A7SII and Battery Grip.

question

Will this work with Olympus EM-5 Mark II? I also have the HLD-8G camera grip attached for the earphones jack to monitor audio during video recording.
Asked by: King Chai W.
We see no reason that the camera and grip combination you have would not work with the Aptaris. The Aptaris is one two known cages that is height adjustable so this should be very easy. (The other is by Chroszeil.)
