The ultraCage Scout HX from Redrock Micro is a portable, self-contained handheld cage and rig for mirrorless and DSLR cameras. The fully loaded Scout HX features a precision-machined cage, a removable rod system, microRemote electronics, an integrated fingerwheel, and built-in battery power.
The Scout can be configured to fit most handheld cameras, ranging from smaller mirrorless to larger DSLRs, while leaving all camera functions fully accessible. The rig's aluminum frame gives your camera added protection from bumps and scrapes, while its Rhino mount secures the torque motor for slip-free operation, and its integrated cold shoe mount enables you to mount up to two accessories.
The ultraCage Scout's wireless-ready microRemote Fingerwheel System is integrated into the cage to optimize balance and minimize size. The integrated fingerwheel offers smooth electronically controlled focus without your hands leaving the grips, and the added opposite-side handgrip provides balance for handholding shots.
The ultraCage Scout HX has setup options to adapt to different shooting styles. You can use the rig in Expanded mode, which features extended grip for comfortable and balanced handholding, or collapse the rig into Compact mode for a smaller setup designed for use on cine-style rigs, such as studio or shouldermount rigs, or on gimbals. You can also fine-tune between the two modes using four sliders for maximum size and balance adjustments.
