The Movcam Cage Kit for Sony a7 II, a7R II and a7S II provides the added protection, stability, and mounting options needed to get your camera ready from video production use.
The kit consists of a form-fitting camera cage, HDMI bracket adapter, top handle, quick-release riser block, and an LWS 15mm rod baseplate.
Serving as the foundation point of the rig, the cage adds a durable aluminum frame around your A7 II, A7R II, or A7S II camera while adding multiple 1/4'-20 threaded holes for attaching various camera accessories.
The cage maintains access to control buttons, battery and SD card compartments and I/O connectors, as well as the Multi Interface Shoe to accommodate optional accessories, such as Sony's XLR adapters. The included top handle provides a convenient way to carry the rig and features additional threaded accessory holes and an integrated shoe mount. A second shoe mount is found on the side of the cage itself.
At the bottom of the cage is a rail for sliding on/off the included riser block. The riser block enables attachment to LWS 15mm rod baseplate and elevates the camera to the proper lens height for use with a matte box and follow focus. The baseplate features ports for adding optional 15mm rods and is compatible with Movcam's Universal Quick Release Baseplate system.
The Movcam Cage for Sony A7 II, A7R II, and A7S II is designed to serve as the foundation point for your camera rig. Compatible with Sony's A7 II, A7R II, and A7S II, the cage adds a durable aluminum frame around the camera while maintaining access to control buttons, battery and SD card compartments, I/O connectors and the Multi Interface Shoe. An integrated plate at the bottom of the cage allows you to attach an optional Riser Block, which enables further attachment to Movcam's 15mm LWS Baseplate to expand your camera rig.
For accessory attachment, 1/4'-20 threaded holes are provided on the top and sides of the cage. Because the camera's Multi Interface Shoe remains accessible, the cage is fully compatible with Sony's optional XLR-K2M XLR Adapter and other MIS accessories. Thanks to its top shoe mount, the cage is also compatible with Sony's XLR-K1M XLR Adapter. Included with the cage is an HDMI cable bracket to help prevent your HDMI cable from accidentally coming unplugged during your shoot.
The Top Handle serves as a lightweight handle for carrying the camera rig between setups and offering additional 1/4'-20 and 3/8'-16 accessory mounting holes. The handle also features a shoe mount in the front of the handle and a 15mm rod port, oriented horizontally, which is useful for supporting optional accessories, such as an external monitor or EVF.
