Cage Kit for Panasonic GH5 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
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.
