The Walimex Pro Aptaris Lightweight Cage for Sony a6000 and a6300 Cameras is a formfitting camera cage designed for the Sony Alpha a6000, and a6300 cameras. It protects your camera while providing multiple attachment points for included accessories such as the cold shoe and handle, as well as separately available accessories. The cage is made from anodized aluminum for a smooth, corrosion resistant, durable cage that weighs just 10.5 ounces.

The cage design allows you to access all functions of the camera while protecting its body from the stress of attached accessories. 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 can also be positioned in different locations, providing you with a wide range of flexibility in attaching accessories.

Formfitting Design
The cage works with the Sony a6000 and a6300 cameras, and it attaches securely to your camera with a 1/4"-20 threaded screw to the base of the unit, which features a rubberized mounting surface.
Tripod Mounting
A 3/8"-16 threaded mounting hole is included on the base of the cage, so you can attach it to a camera plate or tripod head.
Mounting Points
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.
Included Accessories
The cage includes a cold shoe, two mini rails, a two-piece handle, two eyelets, and seven 1/4"-20 tie-down screws. You can mount the cold shoe to any of the accessory mounting holes, and the two mini rails can also be mounted along the cage. The handle riser slides onto the mini rails, using a lever lock to secure it in position. The two mini rails allow you to preset your handle position, and then quickly move the handle from one position to another while maintaining a secure grip. The included eyelets allow you to attach available neck straps, so the whole rig can hang on your neck as if the cage wasn't there.

question

Is this cage compatible with the sony xlr-k1m shotgun mic that connects via the hotshoe and requires a cold shoe as well?
Asked by: Miguel M.
Yes it is. Sony XLR-K1M Adapter and Microphone Kit has a cabled multi-interface shoe connection to connect the audio to the camera and a standard cold shoe connection for a physical connection to a rig. You should be able to mount B&H # SOXLRK1M to this cage when using a Sony A6300.

question

Does this cage have an hdmi lock
Asked by: shaun l.
I am afraid that this cage does not have an HDMI lock. With the A6300 just being released this is the only cage we currently offer for it that is form fitting. If it possible though that a cage will be released down the line for the A6300 with an HDMI Lock. Please keep an eye on our website for product updates and new releases.

question

This cage when tightened causes the lens to point up slightly...is this a mistake?
Asked by: Anonymous
I did find it a tight fit but a 10mm washer inside the cage between the bottom of the camera seems to give it a better 'sit'.

question

Does this cage allow for access to the hotshot? I want to add the sony XLR audio unit, which connects via the hot shoe.
Asked by: Colin C.
The short answer is that there is clearance for the hotshoe, BUT as you can see there is an outlining surrounding area. so it depends on the girth and/or width of the hardware you put on. i just put a nikon sb28 on it and it got on with some force. tried it with a pocket wizard 3 and it went on with no problem whatsoever.
