    Vidpro CA-S7R reviews

    CA-S7R Aluminum Camera Cage for Sony a7 & a7 II-Series Cameras is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but quirky Overall it's of very high quality and precision machining. Fits my A7II perfectly and everything is accessible. The only issues that I've encountered is the poorly-made cold shoe on the right side of the cage (two other hot shoes are on the handle.) The cold shoe is smaller than standard size, so some of the accessories will not fit, such as Shure VP83 microphone. Don't know if it's a manufacturing defect or a design flaw, but it's bizarre nonetheless. It does fit some accessories (a generic cold-shoe adapter that I use with my H4n)so you may still be able to utilize it. I've also found myself wishing that it had more mounting threads. Both left and right sides are pretty much void of them not counting the non-standard holes for the included port-saver. I even took off the wooden piece hoping to find some extras underneath, but to my dismay the several square inches of perfectly useful space were simply neglected. Not adding any threads to the metal piece that connects the handle to the cage was another missed opportunity. This cage is not perfect and its good looks come at the cost of functionality, but at the same time all the included accessories help make it complete. I would recommend it as a budget custom rig for as long as it continues to remain affordable in comparison to other options. I would not recommend it to someone who plans on using it heavily without the included handle because the abundance of mounting threads required for extensive accessorizing simply isn't there.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good value I picked this cage up on sale and I'm very happy with my purchase. It is very well built, the camera fits in nicely and is engineered very well. I only have a few small issues. The edge of the handle is very sharp and should have finished a little better...I'll do it myself. The hdmi clamp is useless and isn't even large enough for the supplied cable. Other than those issues, the cage is very good value compared to cages 3 to 4 times the price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from not bad for the price I bought this cage for my Sony A7rII because�it was relatively cheap compared to some of the other cages I looked at. It is very well made and it was easy to assemble. The only things I don't like about it is that the wooden handle could use a bit more of a 'grip' shape and the top handle get in the way of looking through the view finder. Minor things. Overall I am very happy with it

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Its a great cage with many options for mounting monitor and LED / sound equipment but i find I have to put the camera down and tighten the screws a few times throughout using it. May need to start putting gaff tape over the screws to make sure it all stays together.
