The Unified Cage (Alexa Mini + LW) from Wooden Camera is a form fitting cage plus a 15mm lightweight baseplate for the ARRI Alexa Mini. It attaches securely by four M4 screws on top and four M4 screws on the bottom. The M4 hole pattern found on the camera body is present on the cage top plate. This allows for attachment of ARRI brand handles and accessories. It features arrays of 1/4-20” holes in standard spacing and multiple 3/8-16” holes for accessories.
The cage also has a lightweight 15mm support baseplate that allows for 15mm pass-through rods. The bottom of the baseplate is comprised of the Lower Quick Dovetail which has 1/4-20” and 3/8-16” threaded holes for attaching to a tripod plate or ARRI standard bridgeplate such as Unified Bridgeplate (19mm or 15mm Studio, sold separately). To remove the camera from the included Lower Quick Dovetail and take the 15mm lightweight rods with you, unlock the left thumbscrew, slide the baseplate backwards a short distance, and lift up. This action exposes an integrated ARRI dovetail slot on the bottom which can attach directly to any 2060 dovetails, safety dovetails, or shoulder rigs.
The cage side pieces feature NATO standard accessory rails with spring-loaded safety pins on each end to prevent accidental removal. The NATO rails also feature 1/4-20” and 3/8-16” holes. Clamped to the side rails are two NATO Rosettes (ARRI) which adapt an ARRI standard rosette to a quick-release NATO rail. Furthermore, this Unified Cage can be attached to the Unified VCT Wedge Plate, providing easy counterbalance ability while on the shoulder. This could then be attached to the Unified VCT-14 Tripod Plate which would be attached to the tripod head.
