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

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:

Thomas O  I can't see the underside of this cage. Can I attach my tripod wedge plate to the bottom of the cage? Thanks so much.
JUSTIN C  Most likely it will. It comes with 1/4-20 threading on the cage's bottom. In addition, it comes with rail adapter that attaches to the cage bottom allowing both 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 threading.
Noah O  Can I mount a quick release plate to the bottom of this to use on a tripod? Also, I assume it does, but does it work with a GH2 (sans swivel screen)??
RICHARD C  I bought an iKan camera rig / cage from Adorama and it works pretty well even though it's heavy with a camera mounted on it. I also got a Giottos quick release plate /adapter online and it works Ok. I don't have the Hollywood rig shown. I use mine with a Sony a99 and it's not bad if I need the rig to add cold shoe mounts for audio gear.
Shopper  Does the black magic camera fit in this and if so, is the access to the ports and ssd easy?
JUSTIN C  The Black Magic 2.5k and 4k camera won't fit inside this cage. The BM camera body is about the same size as the cage. The BM pocket camera might fit in this.
