The rugged aluminum Axler Professional Cage for Sony a7 and a7 II Series Cameras adds stability and protection to your camera, while providing a 15mm rod baseplate and numerous 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting points for attaching optional accessories. The cage features a rosewood grip for comfortable handheld shooting and a bolt-on top handle for easy rig handling and carrying on set. For additional accessory mounting, the top handle features two shoe mounts, with a third shoe mount integrated into the top of the cage on the grip side.

Compatible with Sony a7 series and a7 II series cameras, the form-fitting cage maintains access to all camera controls and functionality, including the battery compartment and Multi-Interface Shoe. An HDMI cable clamp ensures that your cable doesn't accidentally come loose while shooting, cutting off the feed to your external monitor or recorder. It also helps prevent damage to the HDMI port, which is further bolstered by an included micro-HDMI to full-size HDMI adapter cable.

The cage attaches to the included 15mm LWS baseplate using a sliding quick release system, allowing you to remove the camera from the rods when a compact, handheld form is desired. When mounting the cage onto the baseplate, it is secured in place using a rear thumbscrew. For tripod mounting the entire rig, the baseplate features 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes. A pair of 11.75" long 15mm rods are included to support an optional follow focus, matte box, or other rod-mounted accessories.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Color isgreenish grey Bought this cage on sale, overall sturdy construction, well built and meet my need. The only drawback is the color is a greenish military grey... quite different from the photo.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far... Great! I haven't used it in the field yet, but one review here on B&H says the top handle wiggled a lot.� That is because it was assembled wrong.� It did that for me too... until I read the assembly instructions and got the correct screws in place.� It's a good looking cage, very sturdy feeling, and I love the HDMI adaptor that comes with it.� Excited to use it (I will update this review if anything odd comes up).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very sturdy and well made It's very sturdy and well made. It's also a lot heavier than I expected which should at least help in moments that I have to go handheld otherwise additional rigs (shoulder, etc) might prove necessary. The only downside is that the the 1/4 and 3/8 mount holes are kind of cramped making it difficult to mount everything I need without additional extended articulating mount arms.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Awesome cage I used this with my a7rii and it fits perfectly, the total rig with the rods is pretty tall, but the tophandle is solid enough to carry it. Its high quality and sturdy. I wish I could attach a different quick release to the bottom so I can put the cage on the rods or on a tripod without having to take the camera out of the cage.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Minor adjustments The rods stand very high so if you want to attach a follow focus, it has to have hight adjustment. Once the handle is attached it's difficult to look through the viewfinder. Built is great and it looks pretty cool!Fits sony a7sii

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great slim cage. Excellent price, lightweight, and very slim (does not block any ports/doors/etc.). The wooden handle isn't spectacular, but with the various mounting points another could be added.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and Well Constructed I use this for my A7s and it fits great. It is very sturdy construction and easy to assemble. No complaints so far.
