Rate & Review

The Zacuto Half Cage creates a solid, adjustable, universal cage structure around the side and top of your camera rig. This will be the last cage you need to buy! It is adjustable to work with all cameras, sizes and shapes. It creates great stability, especially when shooting with DSLR's, giving your camera a sturdy side grip and the ability to add a top grip. The Half Cage is rod mounted so it works independently of your actual baseplate allowing you to adjust its position. It can be positioned and locked via an Allen onto 15mm lightweight rods. The Half Cage features a special magnetic indentation along the side for storing the included Allen key.

The side handle and most of the cheese plate holes are set to work on the right hand side of the camera but can be reversed if a left hand cage grip is desired for 2 handed operation. The Half Cage can mount just in front of your baseplate over the lens or behind your camera on rear rods depending on the balance point of your rig and where you want to add accessories.

At its most compact height, the Half Cage has a clearance of 5.5". Expand the cage via four Allen screws in the handle side and the maximum clearance grows to 9". This range will accommodate most any camera size and accessories. The handle side has two rows of ΒΌ 20 tapped screw holes to attach accessories such as a Zacuto Zud, for Zacuto quick release parts, or threaded accessories like a standard articulating arm or sound recorder etc.. At the top of the handle is a 15mm rod port to attach a Zacuto Zamerican articulating arm Zud or rods. The handle itself is hand tooled, fine, three quarter maple.

The top portion of the Half Cage is double sided Z-Rail. It gives the ability to attach a top handle EVF Axis Mount or other Zacuto Z-Rail accessories like the Slide Mount (giving you top rods), cold shoe mount or Z-Rail Z-Mount. There are also four threaded 1/4 20 screw holes for threaded accessories. The Z-rail is double sided so accessories can be mounted up top or under slung.
