NEWS: Manfrotto announce their new range of cages!

The Manfrotto Camera Cage is a brand-new product in the Manfrotto video range that has been developed together with Wooden Camera®. Created to meet the needs of independent content creators, it offers the possibility to combine a wide range of accessories with mirrorless or DSLR cameras.

Key Benefits:

Lightweight and minimalist design.

Gives you mounting points on the top and side while leaving all of the camera's vital controls easily viewable and accessible.

Solid and well-constructed.

Keeps your camera safely in place while shooting.

Adjustable structure.

Enables to connect different types of mirrorless and DSLR cameras by simply repositioning the top plate at the correct height.

Reversible top handle.

Can be repositioned over the lens area or converted into a side handle.

1/4 and 3/8 attachments.

Connect a wide range of Manfrotto and Wooden Camera accessories to create your desired camera rig. 3/8 attachments are compatible with Manfrotto anti-rotation arms and Arri standard mounting points.

HDMI cable clamp.

Secures video cables and prevents port damage.

The cage will be available in three sizes:

- Small, for mirrorless cameras and small DSLRs such as the Sony a7r III, and Canon EOS 750D

- Medium, for cameras such as the Canon EOS 5D IV and Nikon D850

- Large, for cameras such as the Canon EOS 1DX II and the Nikon D5

We can’t wait to get our hands on these new cages from Manfrotto to see how they compare with the likes of Movcam, but for now, we’ll just have to make do with Manfrotto's video in conjunction with cinematographer Matt Workman below:
