The Wooden Camera Director's Monitor Cage v2 accepts virtually any 9" LCD on-camera monitor, allowing it to be securely held and carried by a director or anyone who needs to have a personal monitor during a shoot. Featuring wooden handgrips, a padded neck strap, and a swing-away design for easy access to the back, this cage makes carrying a small monitor both simple and comfortable. Based on a universal plate system that mounts your monitor using 1/4"-20 mounting points on the side, top, or bottom of your monitor. In addition to holding your monitor, the cage allows for the mounting of a separately available V-mount or Gold mount plate for battery power, and it also leaves plenty of room for wireless equipment, so you can remain untethered on set.

This is version two of the Wooden Camera Director's Monitor Cage, which features mounting capability for the Convergent Design 7Q Odyssey or Apollo monitor/recorder and comes with a collapsible sunshade. When mounted in the cage access to your monitor's front panel controls remain unimpeded. A built-in baby-pin receiver makes for easy mounting to a C-stand. Optional V-mount and Gold mount battery plates are available. An optional adapter kit enables you to mount two Director's Cages side-by-side.

The Wooden handgrips fold for easy storage, while the included sunshade can be used as a protective cover.
The included sunshade adapts to most monitors and attaches directly to the cage, so it does not interfere with your monitor's front panel controls.
An optional adapter kit allows you to mount two Director's Cages v2 together.

    Director's Monitor Cage v2 is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid piece of gear (so far) I was looking a a couple director's monitor cages....the first generation wooden camera, the Proaim version and a couple others. I ended up getting this wooden camera version 2 with the battery plate. I've been using it for about 2 weeks now and so far it has been a solid product. Well thought out...and seems much better built than the first generation cage. The sunhood doubles as a monitor screen protector (check the wooden camera product video on youtube) . Such a simple concept but it really works and has been SO convenient on set between set ups and for travelling. Combined with the battery plate it's a bit pricey but you soon forget that once you are using it and see how it can improve your on set experience.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Product, but not as robust as I was hoping I'm reminded of the line in snatch Heavy is good. Heavy is reliable.; this product is very light and not as robust as I thought it would be. It doesn't feel cheap, but because it is so light my reaction is that it's not going to be able to take the rigors of production life as a director's monitor without constant readjustment and tightening of the moving pieces, and that it won't protect my monitors as there is no cage around the monitor itself . That said, so far I've had no problems, and the weight of it is nice! Just gotta make sure to be a little careful with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So well thought out! I really love this thing! It's so well thought out. I have my Shogun, wireless video, and a v-mount set-up all rigged, and it is wonderful. I especially like the fact that almost everything swings for out easy access. The addition of all the extra mounting hardware, cable ties, sun hood, dual strap for going hands-free (really great for an AC pulling focus remotely or right from the camera!), and C-stand mount make this a must buy!!! Couldn't be happier — especially since I got it for 33% off at a B&H midnight sale. Thanks, guys!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect ac or dir cage Im a steadicam Op and this is probably one of the best investments I've made sofar... I usually have my 702 on set for my AC and being able to mount wireless and an AB brick into this one compact build is a life saver! I love this thing and the ACs love it too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Directors Cage We'll made! I installed an Atomos Ninja Inferno with a Bolt 500 on the plate behind the screen, and finally put an Anton Bauer Gold Mount wit double D-Taps on the rear of the cage. It's very strong and is a great Directors monitor. And with the light stand mount on the cage, it will make a perfect video Village! Very happy with this purchase!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST once you use it once Great setup, versatile. The only think I wish it has was clips for the neckstrap to quickly clip in and out. Other than that I find it a perfect tool to hand to the director and see what I'm shooting or clip it to a stand and 1AC can use it for follow focus. Awesome product as usual WC.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Directors Monitor Cage. This is a great improvement on the 1st generation. I have a lot of WC gear, have had on my Red Epic, then Red Dragon and now my Alexa Mini kit. It's very modular, and very durable. Great price point, can't complain.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Director Perfect I purchased the SmallHD 702 bright and added an AB Gold mount with Teradek receiver. The WC is well built, ingenious in its design and impeccably outfitted with well labeled hardware.
