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