ikan STRATUS Complete Cage for Sony a6500

The ikan STRATUS Complete Cage for Sony a6500 is a form-fitted cage that can fully surround a Sony a6500, a6400, a6300, or a6000 mirrorless camera. The cage section of the STRATUS is based on an Arca-Swiss plate, allowing the cage to be secured to any Arca-Swiss compatible tripod. Surrounding the cage are 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes, as well as a shoe mount and an ARRI rosette for securing articulating arms, handles, or other essential accessories.

At the top of the cage is a NATO rail for clamping the top handle. The top handle has a shoe mount and, for improved grip, can accept a bicycle handle grip. Below the cage the included rod clamp holds the included 7.9" 15mm rods at the correct distance from the lens, conforming to the 15mm LWS standard.

ikan STRATUS 15mm Follow Focus with Hard Stops

Get precise focus control and repeatability with the STRATUS 15mm Follow Focus from ikan. Featuring red and blue aluminum focus rings with built-in hard stops, this follow focus unit makes pulling focus easy. Simply tighten the screw of one ring at the desired position, and then do the same with the other ring to set a hard focus range. The stops can be completely removed by detaching the screws or, to avoid losing pieces, by simply disengaging the stop itself and flipping it off the handwheel. The STRATUS comes with a 0.8 pitch lens gear and 13" reusable lens zip gear. Also included are a crank handle for faster, more extended focus pulls, and a 11.5" whip for pulling focus smoothly without shaking the camera.

Note:
Please note that the STRATUS Follow Focus is not compatible with the Nikon D5 DSLR.

ikan STRATUS 15mm Static Lens Support

The ikan STRATUS 15mm Static Lens Support features a snap-on design that enables you to mount the support on your rods without needing to remove other rod-mounted accessories. Interfacing with a non-rotating section of your lens, this support features 0.88" of vertical adjustment.

The lightweight aluminum STRATUS support fastens via a single thumb-screw, and a knurled thumb-wheel provides extra traction when adjusting the lens support shaft. Use this support alone with your 15mm LWS rod system, or as part of a STRATUS camera cage.

Features

  • Y-support interfaces with a non-rotating segment of your lens barrel
  • Adjusts 0.88" vertically
  • A snap-on design enables the support to be mounted without removing other rod-mounted accessories

Will the cage portion of this fit onto a regular Manfrotto tripod plate for mounting with just the cage?
Asked by: Kate
The cage on this system has an Arca-Swiss style plate. If you have a tripod head with an Arca type connection it will work, or you could add a clamp like B&H # SUMAC14 to your tripod head. https://bhpho.to/2b47Qpc
