The essential DSLR accessory for Gimbal Rigs 

Transform your DSLR into a video production powerhouse with the Gimbal Kit from Redrock Micro. 

The foundation of this kit is the ultraCage for DSLR, a precision milled aluminium camera support cage that starts by adding just enough camera base height to use the gimbal's bottom rails.  Cage sides and top feature multiple mounting points for attaching accessories exactly where you need them for balance and functionality. This ultraCage Gimbal Kit is compatible with most video DSLRs today from Canon, Nikon, and many others.

The ultraCage top mount adds ultra lightweight carbon fibre top rails, perfect for your remote focus motor and controller. With minimal weight and size, the cage and carbon rails fit right in to your gimbal setup. 

And when you're not using your gimbal, the ultraCage can be expanded into any number of DSLR rigs, including handheld, shoulder, and studio styles. 

When you want to make the most of your DSLR and gimbal, you need the Gimbal Kit from Redrock Micro.

Unmatched Camera Security and Support

The ultraCage Black for DSLRs secures the camera with four individual points of contact. This prevents the camera from moving or shifting in the cage along any axis under even the most rigorous conditions. The security and support provided by the ultraCage is unmatched by any other cage, and joins the camera and cage together as were one.

The Features You Want on the Camera You Have

The Redrock Micro ultraCage Black Professional Series for DSLR provides filmmakers with features for your DSLR that you'd expect from a high-end camera, including: 

  •     Sleek Form-fitting design that wraps your camera for security and stability
  •     Top Rail Clamps for attaching any accessories or building rigs
  •     Built-in bottom tap for attaching and mounting directly to your gimbal plate or tripod
  •     added camera height in baseplate so gimbal rails become useful
  •     24 threaded cage mounting points to attach and position camera-top accessories and support brackets
  •     Universal design supports virtually all popular video DSLR cameras from Canon, Nikon, and others

One of the key features of the ultraCage DSLR is the Universal Compatibility. With the unique design and universal shoe clamp, the ultraCage DSLR is the first cage to function like a camera specific cage, but work with the wide range of DSLR camera bodies, saving you money in the long run.

Foundation for building any rig

With integrated top rail clams (and optional bottom rail clamp), the ultraCage is the ideal starting point for building any rig. Whether it's for gimbals, the studio, handheld, or shoulder mount work, the ultraCage Black for DSLR does not disappoint. The top rails are ideal for mounting accessories like a monitor, wireless focus motor, and wireless video transmitter; while the optional bottom rails are a great mounting point for a shoulder mount, chest brace, or hand grips. Surrounding the camera with 24 mounting points, the ultraCage Black is also the ideal solution for mounting cameras to other camera movement tools like steadicams, cars, and cranes.

Best in Class

The perfect balance of cage and baseplate, the ultraCage Black for DSLR does the job of two different tools in one innovative package.

The ultraCage Black for DSLR is the only cage to provide:

  •     Integrated Top Rail Clamp and optional bottom rail clamp for ultimate expandability.
  •     Sleek Form fitting design takes up as little space as possible
  •     Compatibility with the rest of the ultraCage line of products
  •     4 points of contact between the camera and cage for security
  •     optional wireLock for protecting camera's HDMI Port
  •     Lift and Lock Thumbscrews for ultimate adjustment
  •     Compatibility with over 10 cameras
  •     100% Made in America
  •     Lifetime Warranty Protection

Buying Guide

What DSLRs are compatible with the ultraCage?

Most standard height DSLRs are compatible with the ultraCage, including: Canon T2i, T3i, 60D, 7D, 5D MKII, 5D MKIII Nikon D90, D300s, D800 Sony A50 series, A60 series, A70 series

Many Nikon and Canon cameras have an additional anti-rotation locking pin for added support. While not required, it provides an extra level of security.

Does the ultraCage work with taller cameras such as the 1D X or Nikon D4, or ones that have an add-on battery grip?

No -  the ultraCage DSLR fits the standard form factor of standard DSLRs. For taller DSLRs or add-on battery grips, consider the ultraBase DSLR support plate.

Can I use other cameras with the ultraCage DSLR, such as mirrorless cameras?

Yes these cameras are compatible with the ultraCage, but they are smaller, so all features of the ultraCage may not work exactly the same (for example, the bottom battery door is covered on the smaller MFT cameras, and the cage won't be as form-fitting).

Can I add other ultraCage components, such as the rear cage?

Yes you can add virtually any other ultraCage accessory. For a powered cage, use the powerPack Universal edition.

Do I still have access to the battery door or other ports?

Yes - the ultraCage maintains access to the battery door, memory card door, HDMI output ports, and camera control buttons.

Can I use ultraCage with wireLock HDMI lock?

Yes, the optional wireLock attaches to the ultraCage and delivers a secure connection for your HDMI cable.
