Studio Rig for DSLR Cameras

The ultraCage Cinema Bundle for studio-style productions is the ultimate rig for when most of the shots have the DSLR camera on a tripod, dolly, or steadicam. Reconfigure the system like the top handle from single, single with double-clamp, and double top handle to strike that perfect balance between strength and light weight.

Industry Standard Support

15mm top and bottom rod clamps and fantastic stability for your full suite of camera-top accessories and monitors. Front rails support follow focus and matte box; rear rails support external recorders, batteries, and other accessories. The top rods can also be extended over the lens for use with wireless follow focus motors or traditional follow focuses that can be top-rail mounted.

Key Features

  • Core baseplate and camera cage so that it maximizes stability, adds top and bottom rails, tripod attachment, and multiple points for accessory mounting.
  • The rear chassis cage creates a robust top- and bottom-rail setup and 48 additional mounting points, so all your camera-top accessories have a secure and convenient home on your rig.

Tech Specs

  • powerPack Option- Power the cage by attaching the powerPack directly for a complete power solution for all your camera-top devices.
  • backPack Option- Outfit the cage with the backPack mounting plate kit for adding camera-top accessories to the rear of the rig for improved balance, and taps for Anton Bauer, V-mount, and PAG battery plates

What DSLRs are compatible with the ultraCage?

Most standard height DSLRs are compatible with the ultraCage, including: Canon 5D MK III, 5D MK II, 7D, 6D, 60D*, Canon Rebel series* (T2i, T3i, T4i) Nikon D90, D300s, D600, D800 Sony A50 series, A60 series, A70 series. *Battery door is blocked when inside the cage. Suggested use with AC Power adapter.

Does the ultraCage work with taller cameras such as the 1D X or Nikon D4, or ones that have an add-on battery grip?

No - the ultraCage DSLR fits the shorter form factor of standard DSLRs. For taller DSLRs or add-on battery grips, consider the lowBase DSLR support plate.

Can I use other cameras with the ultraCage Black DSLR, such as micro four thirds (MFT) cameras?

Yes these cameras are compatible with the ultraCage, but they are smaller, so all features of the ultraCage may not work exactly the same (for example, the bottom battery door is covered on the smaller MFT cameras, and the cage won't be as form-fitting).

Can I add other ultraCage components, such as the rear cage?

Yes you can add virtually any other ultraCage Black accessory. For a powered cage, use the powerPack Universal edition.

Do I still have access to the battery door or other ports?

Yes - the ultraCage maintains access to the battery door, memory card door, HDMI output ports, and control buttons and supported cameras.

What does the wireLock Locking Mechanism do

The wireLock reinforces the HDMI connection with a solid locking mechanism, and converts the mini HDMI connection into a more secure full size HDMI.
