The Movcam Cage Kit for Sony a7S provides the added protection, stability, and mounting options needed to get your a7S camera ready from video production use. The kit consists of a form-fitting camera cage with top handle, a riser block, and an LWS 15mm rod baseplate. All of the kit components are machined from aluminum for strength and durability.

The cage leaves access open to vital video recording functions and ports, including the multi-interface shoe. 1/4"-20 threaded holes along the top and sides of the cage are provided for attaching camera accessories. The top of the cage features a removable top handle, providing a convenient means of carrying your carry rig, while providing additional threaded accessory holes and an integrated cold shoe. A second cold shoe is found on top of the camera grip-side of the cage.

At the bottom of the cage is a rail for sliding on/off the included riser block. The riser block attaches the camera to the LWS 15mm rod support baseplate, while elevating the camera to the proper lens height for use with optional rod-based accessories such as a matte box or follow focus. The baseplate features ports for adding optional 15mm rods and is compatible with Movcam's Universal LWS Baseplate System.

Movcam Cage Kit for Sony a7S is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way better then expected I was a bit worried this cage wouldn't be solid enough with one screw point at the bottom of the camera but its very solid. The cage fits the camera very snug. Build quality is good yet very light. I recommend the black version, it compliments the camera very nice. This kit came with the lens adapter support screw so no need buying extra parts. Movcam went up a little in my book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel's like a new camera I use this cage to not only protect my Sony A7s, but to attach accessories. I used a generic cage before, but the Movcam cage works much better for my personal needs. I used this cage with the A7s for a documentary in NYC, and it worked brilliantly. It allowed me to stay light and portable, while protecting and enhancing my A7s. It feels extremely solid in my hands. The shutter button is a bit hard to reach, but once I got used to it, it really wasn't a problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid but Not Perfect For context: I use my Sony A7s for personal photography stuff (family, friends, keep it in my bag everywhere I go). And then maybe once a month for video work. But when I say video work, I mean a solid 2-3 days of shooting commercial work. The first thing I noticed is it was well packed and feels & looks premium. Which it is. Then I quickly went to disassembling it to stick my camera in it. That's when I realized how much of a pain this will be for me to prep my camera each time I want to cage it. Probably a 5 min process, which isn't horrible, but makes me think, How important is it for this pick-up shot that I cage this thing. Once I had it assembled around the camera (which is exactly what you do - don't think for a second you can slip or wedge your camera into this thing) I found it to be a really nice and tight fit. Love that. And it feels good holding the camera like a camera, as opposed to carrying a cage around. I put the top handle on and then quickly found that, even without a lens attached, you're not going to be sitting the cage down standing up, because the footprint is so shallow that it barely stands. In fact, it doesn't stand upright with the handle attached. That's probably my main gripe, as I set my camera down a lot on my cart when changing lenses, re-rigging, etc. But install a couple 6 rails and it'll lay nicely on those. Also, while the handle is attached to a small rail system, it still requires a flathead screwdriver to take it off. Would be nice if that had a thumbscrew or something instead. Other than that, this cage is performing well and really offers everything I'd want in a cage while in use. I find the base block that holds the rails to be a little block-ish and odd to use, but it works. I can tell you that if they'd thicken the bottom of the cage and throw an arca-compatible dovetail on it, I'd probably never take my camera out. All-in-all, I like the product and give it 4 stars. Would give it 5 if it had a more stable bottom-side to stand on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cage I have just gotten this cage and I am extremely happy with it. I primarily shoot single-camera narrative, using matte box and follow focus rig.This cage fits the a7s perfectly, is very well built, and has a locking screw for HDMI out. I'm using mine with the Sony XLR-K1M Adapter and Microphone Kit and couldn't be happier.I am very impressed with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Cage The cage is everything you need an A7s cage to be. Pros: -Conforms to the body of the A7s tightly -Adds robustness without adding too much weight -SOLID Build -Anti twisting design -Gives you a slew of 1/4-20 and 3/8 screw holes all over -Leaves room to comfortably access common controls -Has great included cable clamps -Includes a handle! -Solid rods mounting system -TWO cold shoe mounts for those pesky shoe accessories. Cons: -Is not particularly fast to put on and take off, so expect to have it live on your A7s for the shoot. -The rods mount is very narrow, which is great for adding accessories in front and behind, but doesn't allow adjustments for rig balance -The lens support rod doesn't reach lens adapter bodies. I think you can just buy your own though. -On the pricier side, but at the same time a decent middle of the road rig. The cons are very very minor. We're really enjoying the rig and how it adds robustness!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Cage! Great cage, really nice! Everything is perfect except that I wish the handle was quicker to attach and remove, but that really doesn't stop me from highly recommending this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not thrilled... Looks great, feels great, but then again it's not Arri stuff. The very first time I put it on my new A7s the bottom screw would not bite. Crummy
