Wooden Camera Monitor Cage Overview

The Director's Monitor Cage v3 from Wooden Camera accepts virtually any LCD on-camera monitor up to 9", allowing it to be securely held and carried by a director or anyone who needs to have a personal monitor during a shoot. Featuring dual carbon fiber handgrips, aluminum rods, a padded neck strap, and a swing-away design for easy access to the back, this cage makes carrying a small monitor both simple and comfortable.

The cage is based on a universal plate system that mounts your monitor using 1/4"-20 mounting points on the side, top, or bottom of your monitor. In addition to holding your monitor, the cage allows for the mounting of a separately available V-mount or Gold mount plate for battery power, and it also leaves plenty of room for wireless equipment, so you can remain untethered on set.

This is the third version of the Wooden Camera Director's Monitor Cage, which features mounting capability for the Convergent Design Odyssey or Apollo monitor/recorder and comes with a collapsible sun hood. When mounted in the cage, access to your monitor's front panel controls remain unimpeded. A built-in Baby pin receiver makes for easy mounting onto a C-stand.

Mount up to two optional wireless receivers or optional V-mount or Gold mount battery plates

Ordered the cage for my SmallHD Bright 702 and Hollylands 400S Pro, was able to setup with ease. The quality and build is amazing. The carbon fiber handles adds a nice touch to the cage.

DOES NOT FIT SHOGUN

This product does not fit the shogun inferno. Instantly when I put it together I found that there is no way you can attatach BNC input to the monitor. Horrible Design. Do not buy this if you have a Shogun!!!!

Definitely not worth the pricetag

I am not impressed with this cage, especially for the price it's at. I like that a lot of pieces were included, that shows that Wooden thought about that. However the material is aluminum, which is great for weight, but overall feels very cheap. I would've expected something that felt more rugged for this cost. My biggest issue when actually using the cage is that the tightening thumbscrews for the monitor handled must be bolted Very tight to hold the handles securely to the rods. even then, they sometimes move. I had to put a thin piece of tape on the rod so there was enough grip for the handle.

NOT GOOD

I cant believe this is the industry standard. For my cine7, there's a single mount point and the frame doesn't protect at all. Most egregious, with a Goldmount plate ON the monitor you cant use the mounting spud. Oh... and the sunshade is only has top snaps meaning it's floppy (aka junky). As an added bonus, one of my snaps came crushed so I cant mount it properly if I wanted to. This is one of the few regret purchases I've made. For the cine7, I'd strongly recommend the SmallHD handles.

Perfect cage for portability

Perfect cage with all options available. Scerews for all configurations follow, making the whole ordeal so much easier. Only negative from my side is the sun shade is flimsy, and don't sit properly around the monitor. But for me this is a non issue

Not a fan

Maybe it should be called a cage for SmallHD 702, because I threw 3 different monitors at it and they either didn't fit or were a poor fit. Right out of the gate, Atomos Ninja Inferno doesn't fit at all. The side rods are too short to extend it to accommodate the height. Ninja V is an awkward size for it, and lastly Feelworld 7 monitor barely fits but it wiggles side-to-side. The included screws are large so they don't fit the top and bottom mounting points on the monitor. The carbon grips are slippery and you'll need a hex wrench to make adjustments to pretty much every structural point of the cage, save for the handles and the swing-away back mounting plate. All in all, if you're not using it with SmallHD 702 or equivalent, you're going to have a bad time. The cage is feather light, but that's the only thing going for it. Once you attach a Teradek/Hollyland and/or a V-Lock battery,, the whole point of the cage being light is negated. It doesn't even come with a V-Mount plate at this price.

Does anyone know if its feasible to mount two Teradek bolt receivers to this cage so that you can multiview two cams on one monitor like the odyssey 7Q+??
Asked by: Theodore
Yes you should be able to mount two RX to the Wooden Camera Director's Monitor Cage v3 with Dual Carbon Fiber Handgrips. As long as the Receivers are set two channels apart they should not interfere with the other transmission signal.

I think the cage would fit. You can adjust the height/ mounting points. Not sure about the sun shade. I think that's for a 7 in. It would be loose.

Can I fir the Liliput 7in monitor on it ?
Asked by: Martin
Hi Martin. It appears that the Lilliput 7 inch monitor has a 1/4-20 thread at the bottom, which can be used to attach the Offset Bracket of the Director's Monitor Cage v2 to the monitor. You would then adjust the upper main bracket to be flush against the top of the monitor. Ultimately, this setup is similar to that of a SmallHD display.

Is there any difference between this and 'v3 with Carbon Fiber Handgrips' model? (other than the grips themselves, of course)
Asked by: Michael
Yes, the swing out cage has two points of contact (U shaped fixture) where as the V2 only has the swing out cage from one side. I own the v2 cage and love it but having that extra point of contact will make it easier to use on a shoot without cranking down the tightening screw on the V2 to keep it from getting loose. I'd get the V3 if I were looking for another unit. Wooden handgrips are more comfortable but heavier. If you're looking to pull focus on this as well, I highly recommend the rosette adapter https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1449041-REG/wooden_camera_266000_wooden_camera_director_s.html This makes the cage more versatile when used by one person pulling focus.
