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 (California Poppy Red) is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 7.
    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 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 win...

    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 1 out of 5 by from Not a favorite of mine decent but not great tripod, and not a good case for the camera.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Opt for the Manfrotto 797 Modo instead I can't see how this product improves on the Manfrotto 797 Modo which works brilliantly, plus sells for less here on B&H. The Modo actually fits into a slim camera case whereas this beast looks like you'll need to purchase the next size larger camera case to get it all in. The few extra inches of height gained with the Flip Cage are all I can see as an advantage, but based on how I use the Modo, I do not find it relevant.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cool gadget, not as useful as I'd hoped I wanted to use this to stablize the camera to take doll clothes pictures for my mom's website. But it just didn't work well. Couldn't change the height of the camera.
