Form-fitting to the Sony a7 II series of mirrorless cameras, this Cage from Shape will help you transform your camera into a more capable video-making tool without compromising access to critical controls, ports, and slots, such as the lens release button, battery, and memory card slot. It wraps securely around the camera body, preventing unwanted rotation while providing an abundance of 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads for easily adding accessories. Furthermore, a cold shoe placed on the top allows for select shoe-mounted arms and tools to be utilized with ease. For those looking to mount this cage on a support system, a 1/4"-20 thread is available on the base, along with a place for a 1/4"-20 screw to secure the cage to the camera.
Not content to just provide mounts, this cage also offers numerous features, including an HDMI cable protector lock to prevent loss of connection during a critical shot. Another unique addition to this cage is a dedicated support bracket for users of an optional Metabones Canon EF to Sony E adapter. This ensures the weight of heavy adapted lenses is properly supported, and the bracket has a captive screw that stays out of the way when not in use. Users looking for higher audio quality will benefit from a design that permits use of the separately available Sony XLR-K2M XLR Adapter without issue. Finally, it has an ergonomic grip that allows for comfortable handheld operation.
