Features and Benefits
What DSLRs are compatible with the ultraCage?
Most standard height DSLRs are compatible with the ultraCage, including: Canon 5D MK III, 5D MK II, 7D, 6D, 60D*, Canon Rebel series* (T2i, T3i, T4i) Nikon D90, D300s, D600, D800 Sony A50 series, A60 series, A70 series.
*Battery door is blocked when inside the cage. Suggested use with AC Power adapter.
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 shorter form factor of standard DSLRs. For taller DSLRs or add-on battery grips, consider the lowBase DSLR support plate.
Can I use other cameras with the ultraCage Black DSLR, such as micro four thirds (MFT) 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 Black 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 control buttons and supported cameras.
Do I need Counterbalance?
To keep shoulder rigs balanced, filmmakers often use batteries, weights, or external recorders in the rear of the rig to offset the weight of the camera and monitor. This reduces fatigue on the arms and allows for longer steadier shooting. Consider picking up a microBalance QR 1.8kg Weight Kit.
Can I add a Top Handle?
The ultraCage Top handle adds a convent point of contact for transporting and low mode shooting with any ultraCage rig.
wireLock Locking Mechanism
The wireLock reinforces the HDMI connection with a solid locking mechanism, and converts the mini HDMI connection into a more secure full size HDMI.
For more critical focus pulling, we suggest having a microFollowFocus or microFollowFocus Black Professional Series. By attaching a follow focus to the rig, you add the ability to place repeatable focus marks, as well as allow a camera assistant to pull focus for you with one of our varying sized whips.
