Solid,light and strong get in SHAPE

It's like a well built glove for my BMCC. The BMCC is kind of an awkward camera as far as weight distribution goes and not the easiest camera to hang on to firmly. The SHAPE BMCC Cage puts camera in a shell that not only protects, but makes it simple to carry when on the move between shots. Great access to all the cable ports and the drive port along with lightness and strength overall. The adjustability of the rigs' support rods,hearty handle and numerous and varied mounting holes make this a great and important tool for use with the BMCC.

A good value for money solution

This cage provides plenty of mounting points for accessories, and the dual rails expand on that further. Whilst I have never really been in a situation where I need to instantly rotate the handle, anything that works faster is ok with me. The only con, and it is a minor one, is that the rails it ships with can't be joined, so unless you already have rails you sort of have to choose between mounting a battery on the back, or a follow focus on the front (on the bottom row, I use the top row to mount a monitor). However rails that DO screw together aren't expensive and it's all universally compatible anyway.

Unfortunately don't have the Blackmagic CC yet that it's built for. That's a bummer, but no reflection on the Shape rig.

It's a tank!

Shape did a great job of designing this little guy here. Let's get right to it... Strong, sturdy, well balanced and love the dual rail system. Those rails come in handy when you have a fully built up rig. It also has a nice glossy finish to it. Small details like that are always nice if you like that sort of thing. A cage is essential with the BMCC and I researched, reviewed and asked other BMCC users their thoughts on the rails they chose. I chose this one mainly because the handle at the top is a great feature. Having the ability to rotate it is great. You don't even realize you'd need this until you have it and you wonder how other systems don't have this. Good number of mounting points too. The price is reasonable. Not too expensive but it's not cheap either. Overall this thing is worth the cost.

This cage is insanely sturdy, way better build that the pictures would lead you to believe.
