CAME-TV CAME-GH4-3KIT Overview

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.
A plethora 1/4"-20 threaded mounting holes allow mounting of accessories without stressing your camera's body.
The removable top handle incorporates a cold shoe with a 1/4"-20 threaded mounting hole for additional accessory-mounting options. Additionally, the top handle features three 3/8"-16 and three 1/4"-20 threaded mounting holes.
The cage slides into the baseplate for toolless attachment. The baseplate incorporates 15mm LWS rod clamps and provides the correct rod-to-lens-port center height for working with standard rod-mounted lens accessories.
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.

CAME-TV CAME-GH4-3KIT Reviews

Sturdy design, but not practical for easy use.

I purchased this rig in hopes of updating my recording capabilities for an upcoming shoot. Although I loved the weight and feel of this setup (especially the GH4 cage and top handle), it took me hours of experimenting to figure out if it was impractical or simply user error making it difficult to use. The rods tighten only one at a time to the base plate; inserting both rods and tightening at the same time in theory should work, but it would only secure one side, leaving me baffled. I fumbled with this issue for hours before giving up. Sometimes I would get lucky and have them both secured at the same time, but this only happened a handful of times, and not on purpose. The follow-focus adapters don't work well with my GH4 kit lens, despite being advertised for the GH4. Using the focus was loud and the gears would slip, making the ring slide off very easily. The matte box nearly works, however it was not flush to my camera & would dirty the frame on the top of my footage since the lens could not be centered in the matte box properly My package also did not come with directions/manual or the small red adjustment rods that insert to the matte box. Overall very upset due to the inconvenience of having to return this right before it was needed.
