About Redrock Micro

When Canon made the decision to enter the digital cinema camera market, they turned to Redrock to deliver the support gear they knew would make the grade for features, quality,and affordability.

The ultraCage is the first support cage designed specifically for the Canon EOS C100 digital cinema camera, and has been called the essential accessory for transforming these phenomenal standalone cameras into phenomenal production cameras. The ultraCage delivers all the needed pieces for mounting, accessory support, stability, and modularity to fulfill the promise of the C100. As with all Redrock products, the ultraCage delivers professional quality and features at revolutionary prices.

The ultraCage can be configured in both studio and handheld setups (check out the other Redrock offerings for bundled C100 solutions that incorporate on the ultraCage). The ultraCage is light enough and form fitting to be completely unobtrusive so all camera features can be accessed without interference. The C100 removable handgrip can even be attached without removing the ultraCage.

Among its many unique features is the ability to add the powerPack and create an advanced cage that powers not only the C100 camera, but up to 2 additional camera-top accessories such as monitor, wireless follow focus, external recorders, and audio systems.

The ultraCage blue is made in the USA of precision machined aluminum.

Redrock Micro Features

  • Completes the Canon EOS C100 camera: by providing the necessary baseplate and cage in a high quality affordable package.
  • Fits the C100 like a glove: can stay permanently on the C100 even while accessing any of the camera's features or attaching accessories like the C100 removable handgrip.
  • Mounting points everywhere: to attach and configure your rig in any way you want with dozens of mounting points on the bottom, sides, and top of the camera.
  • Robust support and stability: The ultraCage's unique top and bottom camera mounting system means the C100 stays put to withstand the most grueling torque and weight you can throw at it.
  • More than just a baseplate: in addition to the baseplate for 15mm rail support you'd expect, the cage delivers more mounting points and exceptional camera stability by mounting the top of the camera directly into the cage. This is accomplished without getting in the way of accessing all the camera's features.
  • Infinitely expandable: simple and compact, or full featured and ready for the fischer dolly, studio or handheld. Redrock's solutions have your C100 covered, and you can quickly and easily switch between configurations, or add pieces without spending a fortune.
  • Ready to go for large lenses: ultraCage baseplate already has the correct height and mounting points for adding 15mm studio or 19mm rails to support big cinema lenses from Canon, Cooke, and others.
  • Powered cage option: powers the camera and camera-top accessories with the exquisitely designed powerPack that attaches directly to the cage for centralized power conversion, regulation, distribution, and monitoring.
  • Professional grade: As part of Redrock's blue line of accessories, the ultraCage has precision machined aluminum construction and a lifetime warranty.
  • Profoundly affordable: the ultraCage for C100 including cage and baseplate is a fraction the cost of comparable solutions.

In concept, an exquisitely designed cage for the Canon C100. I was drawn to the form-fitting design to the camera body and access to all controls and cable ports. In practice it has left a bit to be desired. The cage fits so close to the body that in some instances there's not enough room to fit short 1/4-20 screws from the inside of the cage. The notch to access the camera's two audio inputs from that abomination of an audio/handle on the C100 is not aligned well. It's difficult to unplug the large audio connector and there's not even enough room to plug in the mini stereo connector. I'll have to remove the camera from the cage to plug it in. The biggest disappointment was the cold-shoe adapter that Redrock sells separately to fit the top of the cage. When I attached the C100's audio/handle to the adapter there was a HUGE amount of wiggle horizontally and vertically. It just wouldn't tighten down properly. Redrock's customer support said they were aware of the problem and would send me another when they had it corrected. Nice effort but not exactly the quality I expected. Another disappointment was their padded shoulder mount and carbon fiber rods. Again, a nice looking piece that lacked execution. One side of the shoulder mount was too tight to insert the CF rod without a lot of twisting and pushing. I just sent that combo back for a refund. I did decide to keep the ultraCage. I still think it's a nice solution but lacks in execution which I'll work around. After the experience, however, I did decide to go with Zacuto for the rest of my rig.
