Redrock Micro released the new ultraCage DSLR and ultraBase support for DSLR cameras. The Redrock Micro ultraCage secures the camera body at three points: screws into the camera base, fastens to the top hot shoe and locks the camera in place with the anti-rotation pin. The ultraCage supports a wide variety of DSLR bodies and has been tested with the Canon 60D, 7D, 5D MKII, 5D MKIII, and Nikon D800/ D800e camera bodies. You will not find a support cage anywhere that is more stable, functional or reliable.
The ultraCage DSLR adds industry-standard 15mm bottom rails for accessories such as a mattebox, follow focus or lens support. The built-in 15mm top rail support is great for adding accessories you want to keep with your camera on every setup, such as camera-top monitors or remote focus motors.
The cage surrounds the camera with 22 mounting holes (standard 1/4” and 3/8”) that are perfect for attaching and positioning virtually any other accessory available. The ultra Series of accessories from Redrock can extend the ultraCage with extended top and bottom rails, triple the mounting points and additional mounting plates for advanced accessories such as external batteries, external recorders, audio units, and remote focusing.
In addition, the powerPack Universal accessory delivers a powered cage option so all camera-top accessories and the camera itself can be powered from a single, long-lasting source using an external battery.
The ultraCage DSLR and ultraBase are ideal for the following types of users:
Professionals using DSLRs for filmmaking
Enthusiasts looking to get better results from video DSLRs
Amateurs who want something they can start simple with and grow
Steadicam, riggers, camera/jib operators needing rock-solid support and stability
