Gary Fong Flip Cage overview

  • 1Description

Gary Fong is a lifelong photographer with a knack for innovative solutions in the lighting realm, but also dabbles with other inventions that solve photographers' problems.  The Flip Cage is such a product, and is a great travelling companion for most point and shoot cameras fitting the general "deck of cards" form factor.

The Flip Cage acts as a roll bar, but also allows you to carry your point and shoot around your neck like a regular SLR thanks to its strap eyelets and 3' long included strap.

More importantly, though, the Flip Cage allows both horizontal and vertical compositions with adjustment for your tilt axis just as if you had a tabletop tripod.  Weighing less than ¼ lb and adding little mass to your point and shoot, the Flip Cage is a strong candidate to come along for every vacation or evening out with friends.

Flip Cage can also do light duty as a macro shooting stand, thanks to its slot for the camera screw which allows some fore-and-aft distance adjustment with the camera facing the table and the 'roll bars' oriented as if the camera was shooting a normal vertical composition.

Accommodates any camera with a tripod screw and maximum dimensions of 4.0 x 2.5 x 1.0" (101 x 54 x 26mm) WxHxD
"Bumpers" protect camera's housing
Allows horizontal or vertical compositions, each with tilt adjustment
Doubles as a macro stand by using the vertical orientation and rotating the camera upon the tripod screw to face straight down to the table
Includes matched 36" neck strap

    Gary Fong Flip Cage reviews

    Flip Cage Tabletop Stand for Compact Cameras (Cotton Candy Pink) is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor construction I would give this product negative stars. I returned it immediately. My expectations were not high, but I expected more for the price and description. The item is made from cheap plastic complete with rough edges, poorly fitting parts, and poor tolerances. The device was so flimsy that it limited its ability to be adpatable and useful for even the smallest and lightest camera. I do not know of Gary Fong, but I certainly would not want my name associated with this product. I am pleased that B&H has a good return policy, because it would already be in the garbage can.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth of your money Flip cage table top tripod is another great product by Gary Fong. It protects your compact digital camera, while also it is be able to be used as a tripod. The flaps on the front and back of the tripod is easy to removed. It also helps to take a shot while you are outdoor. Additionally, you can use it as a diffuser when you do a macro shot with your camera. The only thing that I would like to be revised from this product is the lanyard should be able to be removed, not attached permanently.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buying this product I would recommend Carrying a tripod everywhere you go doesn't always work. So I would recommend purchasing one of these. You can set it up, take pictures or video. This fits inside my briefcase and also protects my video Vi8 mini camcorder. You hide inside and carry it with you take less space. You won't go wrong for the money ABIE

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clever Design for Protecting Camera Clever design for protecting newer, thinner pocket digital cameras. Long strap provided to sling tripod with camera folded inside the roll-cage over my shoulder. Compact design for a tabletop tripod. I tried it with a 7-year old bulky pocket digital camera. The camera was too thick for the roll-cage frame; the side panels of the cage judded out at an angle. In a pinch I would use it with the bulky camera. The tripod worked fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from fun to use!!! this tripod actual is fun to use in its way to stand on surfaces that a normal tripod would fall off on...it may be a little bulky but its functional use for me atleast works...and when storing it its like having a roll cage for it when you fold it up...the white glare shields for sun and flash purposes (or its what i use it for) works fine with a little trial and error...overall im happy with it and my friends like it too...win win...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tripod We use this for just that...a way to position our camera how we need it! This tripod comes with the flash diffusers you see in other pictures and a lanyard although they are not advertised as included(bonus!). It works well and can position the camera a lot of ways. It is very portable and sturdy for being so small. We love this accessory.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A clever design Use it with my Panasonic Lumix FX-700. It works well but keep in mind that the FX-700 is one of the thinnest small digitals in the market. The cage seems quite sturdy. Would have preferred that Gary left his name off the strap or at least not put on there multiple times --- no offense. The cage is very steady on all level surfaces.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great to use This is a very useful portable tripod for compact cameras. I can carry it in my pocket and it's easy to use anytime. When I don't want to carry my bulky DSLR around I use a compact Nikon AW100 and this tabletop tripod heps me get stable shots. I can put it on tables, cars, on the ground and many other places.
