CAME-TV CAME-GH4-5KIT Overview

There are multiple 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads for mounting monitors, microphones, and other accessories.

This rig further enhances your production by providing you with a follow focus system and four gear rings.

Also included are five sponge lens donuts, three rubber lens adapters, and an aluminum donut to fit a variety of lenses.

CAME-TV Protective Cage for GH4 with 15mm LWS Rods, Matte Box, & Follow Focus

The Came-TV Protective Cage Bundle combines a cage for your Panasonic GH4 with a variety of accessories to make a fully fitted shooting package. Included with the cage are a removable top handle, a base plate with integrated 15mm LWS rod clamps, 15mm rods, and snap-on follow focus unit with hard stops as well as a 4x4 swing-away matte box with flags, anti-reflection rings, and removable lens gears.

The form-fitting cage helps protect your camera from the rigors of production and provides accessory-mounting points. The cage slides into the baseplate and locks securely in place. The baseplate incorporates 15mm rod clamps set at the LWS standard and also incorporates 1/4"-20 accessory-mounting points. The snap-on follow focus unit features two hardstops, making it suitable for setting up blind focus pulls and for use with endlessly rotating lenses. The 4x4 swing-away matte box includes two filter trays and removable top and side flags. Also included are anti-reflection donuts and removable lens gear rings.

Once you mount your camera into the cage, the rig can be assembled without tools.

The cage incorporates cable locks that help secure cables to your camera.
Included anti-reflection donuts help prevent light from behind the camera from flaring any filters and degrading your image.
Removable lens gears that you can mount on lenses without gearing allow you to use your follow focus unit with non-cinema-style lenses.

Bang for Your Buck Kit

The good - we've been using this cage system for a few months now, and I haven't run into any hardware failures or serious technical issue. The hardware met my expectations for the price. The cage hugs the GH4 nice and snug, and the handle is sturdy. Handle and cage assembly is quick & easy. The 2 stage matte box is well design with versatility in mind. Both filter trays are rotatable (together or independently). The French flags are metal and adjustable. Follow focus is smooth and seriously articulated for full calibration. The A-to-B hard stop screws have been very useful. Hand grips and shoulder support are well designed for just about any user to adjust for the right fit. The support pads have a stiff-covered-foam feel to it. I saw this is a bonus, because I was excepting a solid plastic pad for the price. Full assembly with rods, camera, lens, matte box and filters will get heavy. So if you're new to the game - consider a tripod with a good load capacity to balance out. I guess my only complaints would be - If you don't use an external video source, the GH4's monitor won't extend to its full position. It's not a huge burden. You can still see the monitor just fine, but the slight angle is noticeable. It would also be really helpful if it came with instructions for assembly. Doesn't have to be in-depth, just some simple fold-out would be sufficient. I'm happy with my purchase. The whole system meets my expectations and more for a good price.
