Zacuto Z-G5C overview

  • 1Description

Zacuto touts their GH5 Cage as a "no-cage" cage, although it provides protection and support for accessories via 1/4"-20 threaded mounting holes and otherwise meets the criteria for what people generally refer to as a cage. Lightweight, but maintaining the robust build quality Zacuto is known for, the cage features anodized aluminum construction with a front plate, the accessory mounting holes, and a removable handgrip on the camera left side. The cage is form-fitting and is designed to use your camera's neck strap eyelets, in conjunction with the 1/4"-20 mounting screw, to keep your camera secure.

The design of the cage allows access to all the camera's functions, battery, and SD card compartments, as well as leaving your camera's hot shoe unobstructed. In addition, the design permits you to grasp your camera with your right hand as if the cage were not there, while the included strap keeps your hand snug against the camera. The top plate incorporates numerous 1/4"-20 threaded mounting holes, with the cage itself featuring a total of 46. The bottom of the cage is machined into a dovetail compatible with an optional VCT Pro or VCT Pro Dock, but it also features two 1/4"-20 and one 3/8"-16 threaded mounting holes for mounting a tripod plate. An optional top handle and Metabones support expand the functionality of the cage.

Built-In
  • Anodized aluminum construction
  • 46 total 1/4"-20 threaded accessory mounting holes
  • Built-in Z-Rail for top handle (or other accessory) mounting

    Zacuto Z-G5C reviews

    GH5 Cage is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better than others but should be the best at this price I have enjoyed using Zacuto products over the years and was not happy with my Varavon Zeus cage so I bought this Zacuto cage thinking it would be the end-all in cages for the GH5. Well, not so much. Zacuto played it up in their videos and it has a lot of nice features but some serious question marks in the design. Like another user stated the one of the front buttons next to the lens mount is inaccessible with this cage, I had it set to stabilizer so now I have to reconfigure button mappings. My main gripe is with the built in dovetail that they claim can be used directly with the VCT dock. It is way to tight to get on and off and therefore should not be claimed as a legitimate feature. So I have to send back the VCT dock I ordered with this cage and have yet to decide if I will keep the cage itself. Going to try it on a couple of productions and decide if it is worth keeping.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't work with metabones speedbooster Quality looks great and was really excited to use it but to my dismay I quickly found out there's no way to make the GH5 fit with the Metabones Speedbooster. How they forgot to build it for this, I don't know.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a great cage! If you do as much stills as you do video this may not be the one for you. This is a cinema cage. Its VERY well made and (for me) perfect ergonomically. I like that you can slide the handle up and down or even use it as a top handle if you want. As a filmmaker the only reason you would ever need to remove the cage would be to fly the camera on a gimbal. It comes with a metal HDMI cable clamp too. With the Panasonic stabilization and this cage, you don't need a tripod nearly as much. Just a very solid piece.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent GH5 Cage! I used this cage for hand help photo and video shoot. The cage is very well made. It's 3 anchor points make the camera secured and firm, no twisting. The right side of the cage does not have a metal bar like many of its competition but has an adjustable hand strap. This is a clever idea for small hands like mine. I can easily reach all the top buttons and dial without getting my fingers or thumb pinched. It come with a very well made handle on the right side of the cage. The handle has a cold shoe on where I mount my Rode Videomic Pro. The handle is easily removed tooless. The strap and handle provide excellent stability and control when shooting hand held. The cage comes with a hdmi clamp and a right angle hdmi adapter that I find it very useful to prevent stress on the hdmi port. Easy access to battery and sd cards. It has plenty of 1/4 20 and 3/8 threaded holes to mount arms, etc. I have only two negatives on this cage: 1. It is pricey. But I know I m buying a Zacuto and it is USA made!!. 2. fn button next to the lens base is inaccessible even with my small pinky. I have to use a pen tip to access that fn button. I hope zacuto has a fix to this issue for the premium price I paid for. Could have given it a 5 star, if fn button access next to lens base is not an issue.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cage Frame Blocks Access to TC In/Out Socket With Zacuto GH5 cage attached to the camera, the Panasonic BNC Conversion Cable (TC In/Out) cannot be attached to the flash synchro socket, as the cage frame blocks access.
    Date published: 2018-11-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome - super high quality cage This thing is great for the GH5.� Super stable, super high quality machining, exactly what I was looking for.� Easy to build out as well.
