The Movcam Cage Kit for Panasonic GH5 includes a lightweight formfitting magnesium cage and a PL mount adapter for your Panasonic GH5. This combination offers protection for your camera, as well as accessory mounting points and the choice of using PL mount lenses on your camera. The cage features numerous threaded 1/4"-20 threaded mounting points, which allow you to add accessories to your camera without stressing its body. The included top handle mounts onto the cage via an included NATO rail, and once attached you can easily change its orientation without using tools.
The cage includes a riser with LWS 15mm rod clamps and rods, allowing you to use cine-standard, rod-mounted lens accessories. It also features an Arca-Swiss QR plate, which is compatible with many tripod heads. The PL mount adapter attaches to your camera, allowing you to use standard cine-style PL-mounted lenses on your GH5. It provides for flange focus distance adjustment for the sharpest images and includes a 15mm rod support to shift the weight of the adapter and lens off of your camera's lens mount and onto the 15mm rods.
Movcam 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.
Movcam 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).
Movcam 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.
