Wooden Camera 182600 overview

  • 1Description

Carry your director's monitor with you using the Wooden Camera Director's Monitor Cage. The cage is based on a universal plate system that secures to your monitor using its 1/4"-20 mounting points. In addition to holding your monitor, the cage allows for the mounting of a separately available V-mount or Gold-mount plate for battery power, and it also leaves plenty of room for wireless equipment, so you can remain untethered on set. Comfortable foam handgrips attach to the sides of the cage, great for carrying around and checking shot composition from anywhere. The front of the monitor is unimpeded, so you can mount sunhoods or other accessories. When not in use, or if you want to keep your setup in the same place, you can secure the cage on an available C-stand (baby pin).

    Director's Monitor Cage is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from GARBAGE! The worst portable monitor cage out there! Wooden camera should be embarrassed by this product and after one use it's obvious this product was never really tested in the field at all. In a professional environment this thing doesn't hold up for more than 2 minutes and I'm not exaggerating. When a director starts running around set this thing collapses into a brutal mess because all of the screws loosen with any bit of interaction. I bought lock washers and put them on every screw and it still didn't help. I've now relegated this things for spare parts. I'll definitely think twice before buying any of their products again. STAY AWAY!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Monitor cage on the market You can't go wrong with Wooden Camera and this cage is again the proof of the adage. This will fit most monitors and wireless systems on the market. It is a bit hard to configure and may need to be disassembled to change monitor, but still better than the other solutions out there. This feels super robust and director proof

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cage for the price! I don't understand the hate on this thing? The screws can come loose, but if you tighten down like a man and throw some Loctite on there, they won't come undone. And you can easily throw it on a C-Stand. Works on my 5 and 7 monitor with room for wireless receiver and V-Mount plate. Final thought: Sturdy feel, don't be scared to tighten it down, C-Stand functionality is great.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from the worst I love wooden camera products.... accept this one! Stay away! As soon as one screw gets loose (which happens very easily) the entire unit collapses in on itself... Over and over again. I can even use this product. Horribly flimsy and unreliable. Just spent $$on a wireless unit just to look like a jerk on set.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty Good But... Not bad but I think that a couple of things need to be changed. 1. Like some folks mentioned, the screws do twist loose but an easy fix is not to use the washers that come with it and either blue locktite or a star washer like we did and its solid. 2. The black foam bike grips are very loose and flimsy so we replaced them with a stiffer foam grip that has a woodgrain appearance and they are AWESOME!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile I like this cage because it's a versatile one. It can fit various size monitors and I like that I can put the wireless receiver between the battery plate and the monitor, protecting it a bit. With a little setup it works great. I do find that this, as with other Wooden Camera products can benefit from a drop of LocTite on the screws.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wonky. Unreliable. Amateur. As mentioned in other reviews the screws that hold the rig together REQUIRE loctite. To me this is poor design. It should work out of the box and be adjustable without adding glue. Also, the c-stand mount has the monitor sitting on the c-stand loosely and often at an angle. Busch league. This is not a good product. Embarrassing to have on set.
