New support cages launched for Panasonic GH5, Canon EOS C700 and Panasonic VariCam LT
The Chinese camera accessory manufacturer Movcam has bolstered its range of camera cages with the announcement of new cages to support recently released digital cameras from Panasonic, including the 4K GH5 model, and Canon.
The Movcam cage for the Panasonic LUMIX GH5 offers protection for the camera’s body while adding multiple points for mounting both shoe-mount and threaded accessories. The main cage element is comprised of a single piece of magnesium to provide “the ultimate in strength”, whilst being “incredibly lightweight”. The kit also includes a top handle, a riser block and a baseplate with support for 15mm LWS rods.
Pro cinema camera cages
Continuing the company’s range of accessories for professional cinema cameras, Movcam has also announced fully-featured camera cage kits for both the Canon EOS C700 and Panasonic VariCam LT Super 35mm format cinema cameras. All three of the new cages have been designed with the core focus being on remaining lightweight and compact so they can augment the features and capabilities of each camera without providing any kind of obstruction to operation.
The Movcam line-up of cages also includes support cages for cameras such as the Sony a7 range and the Blackmagic Design’s Cinema and Pocket cameras.
