The Movcam Cage Kit for the Panasonic GH5 & GH5s includes the all-magnesium GH5 camera cage and multiple additional accessories that provide for a more complete and flexible workflow. The included twist top handle features a quick release NATO rail mount, rotating grip design, 15mm rod port, front and rear shoe mounts, and 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting threads. The riser rail allows you to attach the handle front-offset to make room for the XLR adapter compatible with the GH5.

The Universal LWS Baseplate accepts Arca-Swiss camera plates and is mountable on ARRI dovetail plates. It offers 15mm LWS rod ports and an adjustable lens support in front for long or heavy lenses. The kit also includes an HDMI bracket and two 8" 15mm rods. Most of these additional accessories are made of magnesium just like the cage itself.

The GH5 Cage Kit also comes ready to support the optional Metabones MFT to EF adapter. There's a spare component on the bottom of the cage that can be removed and screwed directly under the adapter to provide a sturdier support for the adapter.

  • Panasonic GH5 Cage

    The Movcam Panasonic GH5 Cage provides form-fitting protection to your camera and supports mounting accessories without stressing your camera's body. Made from magnesium, the cage is both lightweight and rigid and allows full access to your camera's functions, battery, and SD card compartments. The front of the cage features two small raised tabs that secure your camera and prevents it from twisting inside the cage. It ships with a removable Metabones support attached, a support that interfaces neatly with the Arca-Swiss tripod plate.

    Built into the cage are 26 separate 1/4"-20 threaded accessory mounting points as well as a cold shoe. This allows you to mount a wide variety of accessories to the cage. The Arca-Swiss tripod plate incorporates two 1/4"-20 threaded mounting holes, enabling you to mount the QR tripod plate of your choice. The design of the cage permits the use of the Panasonic XLR audio adapter.

  • Twist Handle for Select Movcam Cages

    The Movcam Twist Handle is a quick-release top handle designed for use with Movcam's GH5 and a7 II-series camera cages, attaching to the cage via an included short NATO rail. Once attached, the handle can be rotated by loosening a top thumbscrew, letting you set the desired grip angle/position. Tightening the screw locks the handle in place. For accessory mounting, the handle features 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded mounting holes, a single 15mm rod port, and two shoe mounts (one in front and one in back of handle).

  • Universal LWS Base Plate with Arca-Swiss QR Mechanism

    This Movcam Universal LWS Base Plate with Arca-Swiss QR Mechanism mounts on ARRI compatible dovetail plates and accepts Arca-Swiss compatible camera plates. It incorporates individual locking levers for the Arca-Swiss and ARRI plates. It features lightweight magnesium construction and 15mm LWS rod clamps. The rod clamps use spring-loaded locking levers, which allow you to tighten or loosen the clamps even when you don't have room to turn the levers to their full rotation.

    The base plate also features an adjustable lens support that helps lessen the stress on your camera's lens mount when using large or heavy lenses. The lens support adjustment allows you to compensate for lenses with different diameters.

  • 15mm Aluminum Rod - 8" Long

    The 15mm Aluminum Rod - 8" (203.2mm) Long from Movcam is a single rod made of aluminum and is 8" (203.2mm) in length.

Cage Kit for Panasonic GH5 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fine piece of very functional sculpture! I looked for quite a while before settling on the Movcam cage, it is by far the sleekest, most functional cage I could find for my GH5. Not that the weight savings of being made of magnesium (same material as body of GH's) over aluminum is significant, it is still a wonderful nod to the whole concept of MFT cameras. Although this is a complete rigging framework with rails and top handle which is very well thought out, the basic cage lives on my camera, I never remove it. The request for this review came after my purchase of a second one for my brand new GH5s. Cannot praise this well engineered and beautiful piece of kit too highly!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Cage, Great Quality! I did a lot of research when looking for a cage to use with my GH5 and found the Movecam to be the best fit for my needs. I wanted something that I could leave attached to the camera at all times to go between handheld and video tripod, this was the best choice for me. It is light weight, well made and includes 15mm rods for mounting a mattbox or follow focus. I am very pleases with the product, great value for what you get!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but not perfect. Very light weight. Camera + cage feels good in hand. Not all controls are easily accessible by my medium size hands. Main photo dial and on/off switch are a bit tight to access with my fingers. Must contort and squeeze for access. If one were to add XLR unit to gh5 hotshoe the Movcam handle would be very off balance. Riser/rods mount also nice but I'm not hip with Arri dovetail mount. Considering returning for the much more inexpensive (aluminum)new Smallrig which looks to have copied this exact cage but adds some functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two weeks in and it only gets better I'll admit it - I had quite the buyers remorse when the box showed up - I have multiple gimbal options for the gh5 and felt like this may just be a redundancy i just simple don't need, but two weeks all forms of remorse have disappeared. The build quality is phenomenal and the matching finish of the material with the gh5 is a very nice touch.� If you are looking for a cage for the gh5, you cannot go wrong with this product

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Lightweight Cage, a few flaws, watch for missing parts Pros: Construction and weight is great, fits snug to the camera , comfortable to handle. HDMI attachment improves upon the one that is given to you by Panasonic, great extras such as the rod holder base, and rods. Cons: My cage was missing a vital part!!!, the small metabones support that fits at the bottom of the cage is missing, please make sure that you have all parts when buying the cage kit. When you put the GH5 XLR adapter on top of the camera and want to connect an XLR mic to it you cant put the mic on the right hand side cold shoe because there is not enough room for the XLR attachment. You have to get a right angled XLR attachment to make this work or extend the cold shoe. I used a ballhead with a coldshoe that attaches to the handle to solve this. Dove tail mount Im not a fan of. Better if it was a Manfrotto or Archa swiss baseplate No left handside cold shoe, I used a small 15mm rod that threads through the handle and bought a separate cold shoe that mounts to it providing you with this. No instructions on how to mount the cage to the camera, Movcam's limited website does not have this information either. Very limited information from the manafacturer about this product even on this B&H page.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extremely Light, All Around Good Value As many reviewers and YouTubers have said - the cage is made from a very similar magnesium alloy that the GH5 itself is made from - which makes it both pleasing aesthetically and astonishingly light. There is a small adapter at the bottom of the cage that can be removed, relocated to the bottom front and made to serve as a stabilizer reinforcement for Metabones adapters. This really comes in handy as the Speedbooster I have has a touch of play once mounted. The rail mount is a nice addition and a pleasant surprise given the cost of the kit - it is no throwaway however as it is constructed solidly with a decent mount/locking mechanism to easily remove the cage. The bottom of the rail mount is a standard dovetail so can be used with those systems or simply screwed into a standard tripod, etc. The handle is good save for one small issue - the screw knobs that tighten the EVF rail mount and the handle itself are a bit too close together and it can be challenging to adjust one without adjusting the other. My only other gripe is that the screws that come with the cage are susceptible to stripping unless you use a proper flathead (small multi-tools and coins need not apply). Overall a very good value - I would've gladly paid $200 for the cage itself, getting the other accessories for a mere $70 is icing on the cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely LOVE this cage. I have had tow other cages for my GH5, the 8Sinn and Small Rig. This one was by fare the best designed and gave the best access to handle buttons. It's quality is superb and it's design is about perfect. It's rail system is beautiful and the handle feels perfect too. This is my second MovCam cage. I also have their A7S-II cage and from now on, I'm only buying MovCam.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from solid and generally works well I have not used the rods that come with the kit, but have set up the rest though on a GH5s with xlr audio attachment.� There were no assembly instructions, but I figured it out OK.� The pictures helped.� Battery door is just barely accessible, but it does work with the cage on.� An input for remote control of servo zoom lens does not work with my controller because of an L-shaped bend on it's cord's plug.� If I push really hard, I can make it partially work only some of the time.� I guess that another cord is the answer.
