A compact alternative to a full-scale DSLR video rig, our Flashpoint Frame-Up HD-DSLR Video Cage is a precision-machined, black-anodized aluminum framework designed to surround your camera, allowing you to mount a variety of accessories. Along with increasing video versatility, this takes the stress off your camera's hot shoe. Designed for Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon EOS 7D, and other full-sized HD Video-capable DSLRs, it features numerous ¼-20 threaded sockets that let you add video lights, microphones, an on-camera monitor, support arms for flags, and so forth.

Holes are also drilled throughout the Frame-Up for lighter weight and easy cable threading; there's also a built-in HDMI cable protector. Cut-outs provide access to the camera's controls, top-deck LCD screen, CompactFlash slots, and battery compartment. A hand grip on top allows both comfortable carrying and low-angle shooting; a supplied bracket can be attached to the cage's base to hold two supplied 15-millimeter rods, which are needed to mount a matte box or follow-focus system.

Well built & wide compatability

By

from North Lima, OH  -  Semi-Pro Photographer

This cage works with not only the 7D, 5D MKII and 5D MKIII, it also works with swivel screen models such as the 60D and T3i models. If you mount the camera farther back on the cage thread, you can open and rotate the screen without removing it from the cage. However, the design of the cage only allows you to view the screen in the same position as the 5D (below the viewfinder facing outwards) not extended from the camera. The cage has a superior build and is quite sturdy. You can easily mount a heavy screen, mic, and audio mixer to it. A small problem in cage design makes it hard to access SD cards from a 60D.

Questions about this item:

Silas E  Will a black magic cinema camera fit in this? Also is there an area to mount a shotgun microphone?
Andrew R  Unfortunately I believe that the Black Magic Cinema camera may be a tight squeeze (it's about a 1/2" wider than the Canon 5D). While the unit is not supplied with an external mount for things such as shotgun mics, there are several 1/4"-20 threaded sockets that could be used to attach an external mount.
DANIEL L  DANIEL L. can this be used with a Nikon D800?
BRADFORD Y  yes
JORDAN L  where is the hdmi cable protector that is mentioned, i dont see it in any of the pictures?
ALEX K  I am not sure if such a thing exists with the basic package you are looking at. Maybe it's an optional thing ... But there's a slot in the housing corresponding with the HDMI input on the camera and just that kind of serves as a protector by preventing anything to bend or hit the cable plug while its in the socket ... Cheers
