CAME-TV ZBTL01 overview

  • 1Description

The DSLR Cage Rig from CAME-TV is a universal camera cage designed to fit DSLRs such as the Canon 5D Mark III and 7D, as well as mirrorless cameras such as the Panasonic GH4 and Sony a7 series. A quick release plate is used to attach your camera, making it easy to transition to handheld shooting when a cage isn't required. The plate features a back stop to prevent your camera form twisting while operating, and is secured in place using a push-button safety pin to prevent it from accidentally coming off the cage.

A cutout at the bottom of the cage provides access to the battery compartment of your camera, facilitating easy battery swaps without having to remove the camera from the cage. The cage has built-in 15mm rod clamps at the bottom and includes a pair of 13.8" long rods, useful for mounting optional accessories such as a follow focus, matte box, or external battery solution. For tripod mounting, the entire cage mounts onto an included dovetail plate, giving you sliding range to help balance out front- or rear-heavy rigs.

The aluminum cage features 1/4"-20 accessory mounting threads along the top and sides, with each threaded hole lined with stainless-steel Heli-Coils to prevent the aluminum threads from stripping. The included top handle assembly adds a shoe mount and attaches to the top of the cage for carrying the camera rig.

    CAME-TV ZBTL01 reviews

    DSLR Cage Rig Kit is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great cage for A7s ii I like the functionality of this cage. It's solid and has everything I need. The only issue I had was that the base of the handle assembly had a slight machining error and it wouldn't slide into the groove in the cage. It looked like it got dropped or hit while it was being manufactured so it had a slight protrusion of metal blocking its entry. After taking a rasp to it and smoothing out the bump, it fits fine though. Everything else is machined very precisely. Also, there's an old review video out there saying that the battery compartment door doesn't open on the A7s. However, they addressed this issue in this latest version of the cage.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from For DSLR, its okay My Canon 6D fit well inside the cage, and it's pretty easy to connect everything together. The problem I have with this cage is the cold shoe mount on the top handle is screwed in with 4 tiny screws that can't seem to hold my 7 inch SmallHD monitor. They just keep coming loose and I have to tighten them, but everytime I do they become more and more stripped. Also, it is a bit heavy. I can't imagine going handheld with this long with all my accessories attached. Yes thats without the split-bridge plate. So after over a year of using this, I've decided to upgrade to the Sony A7III and Tilta cage for it. You should too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality/Easy Assembly This guy is my first rig. It's fairly light. Works well with my 5D Mark III as far as accessing the battery. It's a little awkward trying to slip out the door for the SD/CF card slots. Camera easily slides out. The HDMI lock does get in the way of connecting an AUX cable into the mic jack. I use this to record from my Tascam into my 5D. There's very little hassle adjusting any other parts of this. So far so good and looking forward to shooting with it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Usless Item This is a useless item. The camera plate will not screw all the way on a Metabones, nor Sony a7S ii. The screw is larger than standard. Also the rods are 45mm one from the other . . . which makes it useless. I want my money back and B&H has not taken responsability. This is affecting my production.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless Item! The Camera Plate is larger than the standard and will not hold a Sony Alpha nor a Metabones. The distance between the Rods is 45mm which makes it useless since the standard is 60mm. . . . This was a waste of money and BH has not taken responsibility for this. I want my money back and a product I can use.
    Date published: 2017-09-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cage Rig Kit Im elated by the versatility and ease of use of the Cage Rig with my camera and accessories. Mounting my iPhone to remotely view and control the camera functions was simple and effective. The shotgun mic fits on top of the cage. The slider mount is heavy duty and helps to stabilize the rig on the tripod. Now I will add a small LED light for fill-in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product I bought this cage after buying a poorly designed one on Amazon. This cage is everything I needed and it is easy to use. I like the fact there are multiple places to mount all of my accessories. The cage is also built really well and feels sturdy. Very pleased with this purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cage rig I use it with the Sony a7s and love it. Nothing to complain about. Only the HDMI locking mechanism doesn't fit perfectly so I just took it out. Battery door is easily accessible all the time.
