How secure is my camera inside of the ultraCage?

Your Canon C Series Camera is securely latched inside of the ultraCage by four different anchor points. This guarantees your camera will not shift inside of the cage when using even the heaviest of cinema lenses. The points of contact are:
  • Top Bracket Threaded into Integrated ¼”-20 of the Camera
  • 1/4”-20 Thread on the Bottom of the Camera
  • 3/8”-16 Thread on the Bottom of the Camera
  • ”Base-hugging” lip of the baseplate to assure the camera sits straight

    How do I attach the Canon LCD Monitor and Audio unit?

  • The Canon C300 MKII monitor now includes a 1/4-20 mounting point, therefore we can now include the standard microMount with this bundle. There are multiple different ways to attach the Canon LCD Monitor and Audio Unit, however. Take a look at the ultraCage Configuration Page to get a few ideas of where to start with your own setup.

    How do I attach my cage to a tripod?

    The ultraCages for Canon C Series cameras have multiple ¼”-20 and 3/8”-16 on the bottom of the unit, ready to accept any standard tripod or bridge-plate system. You can also utilize the ¼”-20 and 3/8”-16 screws on the bottom of the shoulder pad.

    Can I access all the buttons and features of the camera while it’s in the cage?

    Yes, the ultraCages for C Series cameras do not block any of the ports, buttons, or features of the camera. This includes the Canon Side Grip, which can remain attach to the camera at all times, as well as maintain it’s full range of adjustability.

    Do I need top rails?

  • Top rails are valuable components of any rig. You can attach accessories like a digital motor or monitor and have them travel with you no matter what support you build off of the bottom rails.

    Can I use my existing Redrock Micro gear with this configuration?

  • Yes, the ultraCages for C Series cameras can be used with all of the other Redrock Micro support products like our shoulder mount and matte box. Also, being part of the ultraCage series means it’s compatible with other ultraCage components like the rear chassis.
