    Comments about SHAPE Cage for Blackmagic Pocket Camera with Handle and Baseplate:

    I was pretty happy with this product in general. The only flaws are that the backplate screws get in the way of easliy removing the camera. also the screw which secures the rods feels a little bit flimsy. Other than that it provides great protection and stability.

    Comments about SHAPE Cage for Blackmagic Pocket Camera with Handle and Baseplate:

    For anyone using the BM Pocket Cinema Camera, you know how small and fragile the camera can feel. Overall, this is a great, solid, professional product that integrates easily with other 15mm rod rigs and accessories. The dozens of threaded mounts give you tons of options for adding additional components.

    Using this cage immediately adds some heft, but not too much weight, and it's full design boxes in the entire camera (offering a lot more protection than some of the other models that only enclose half the camera.

    It's easy to use but requires that you remove the lens whenever inserting or extracting the camera. The camera is held firmly in place by a sliding plate that you screw in to tighten. In general, you have access to plugs, battery and card, but making a bulky rig makes it much harder to get the battery hatch open.

    One issue I had was with the space given on the left side — there is not very much room for plugs that are not extremely small. I personally struggled to plug in my Sony headphones, which have a little bit of flared rubber and a threaded plate for screwing into 1/4" adapters. I was able to work around this by making sure not to tighten the left screw entirely.
