The MaxXmove C1 Camera Cage is designed to surround your camera and allow you to mount a variety of accessories. Intended for full-sized video DSLRs, it features numerous 1/4"-20 threaded sockets that let you add video lights, microphones, an on-camera monitor, support arms for flags, and other accessories. Cutouts provide access to the camera's controls, top-deck LCD screen, compact flash slots, and battery compartment. A hand grip on top allows both comfortable carrying and low-angle shooting. The included bracket can be attached to the cage's base to hold two 15mm rods that can be used to mount a matte box or follow focus system.
