New Camera Cages from Manfrotto


The B&H Photo Video SuperStore is pleased to announce a trio of camera cages from industry mainstay Manfrotto. Catering to the growing number of videographers who capture footage using a DSLR or mirrorless camera, the cages are available in small, medium, and large options. While “cage” has become the go-to term describing these items, they function more as a staging truss does—as a base structure on which to attach accessory components. The cages also provide a protective exoskeleton around three sides of your valuable camera. All your camera's key controls on the right grip and on the left side remain easily viewable and accessible when using a Manfrotto Cage. Access to your camera’s battery remains unimpeded, as well, saving time when swapping out batteries.

Each Manfrotto Cage can accommodate several types of mirrorless and DSLR cameras—simply reposition the top plate at the correct height. Attach the cage’s quick-release plate to a sliding plate for rapid, easy mounting on Manfrotto baseplates and tripod heads. For the small and medium cages, a separately available 15mm Baseplate enables you to position a pair of 15mm rods at the suitable distance to the center of your lens. The Large Cage incorporates a height-adjustable rod clamp, but can also be used with the 15mm Baseplate for attaching a second, rear-mounted rod pair for an external battery slide, etc.

An HDMI cable clamp minimizes the chance of your HDMI cable being yanked out inadvertently while recording, and lessens the possibility of damage to the HDMI port. Multiple 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes are compatible with Manfrotto anti-rotation arms and ARRI standard mounting points, preventing accessory arms from rotating out of position. For comfortable operating, the Manfrotto Cage’s reversible top handle can also function as a left side grip. Each cage thumbscrew is adjustable, pulling out and rotating to your preferred positon.

Itching to improve your DSLR or mirrorless camera’s audio capture? The top of the Manfrotto Cage leaves the space above the camera's accessory shoe unobstructed for mounting audio accessories, such as an XLR adapter. Compatible Manfrotto accessory items include 15mm rods (12"), the CROMA2 and Lumimuse 8 on-camera LED lights, and the 244 Mini and 244 Micro articulated accessory support arms.
