It's been several weeks, but the new P&C GearBox is now available at The name 'GearBox' was submitted by David during a June contest, so congrats David, will be sending one of these GearBox cages your way.

There are many High End, Super Heavy, Robust video cages available for the Professional market, but we found a lack of more affordable options for smaller style video cameras such as the Sony NEX-7 or Popular GH2. The P&C GearBox is designed to be simple, lightweight, modular, and of course - affordable.


The GearBox has a solid metal bottom and top bracket with several 1/4-20 mounting options for your accessories such as an LED video light, Portable Recorder, HDMI LCD Monitor, Microphone, Wireless Receivers, etc. To take up minimal space in a bag when packing up or traveling, the GearBox can easily be disassembled with a single Hex driver.


The GearBox will support a quick release plate underneath if you want to mount the rig onto a Tripod. Extension adapters are provided to support taller cameras, or if you want to add a quick release system into the cage unit allowing you easy removal of your camera body. The rubber coated side handles provide a non-slip comfortable grip and are spaced further apart to add stability for hand-held shooting styles. Interested in a Rail System? Soon to be released is the 15mm Rod adapter (sneak peek here).

As a new item, there is an Introductory Price of just $79.99 over at (Click Here).

    @Emm, can you use this cage sans top bracket, in a U configuration to support taller cameras like the 5D3 with grip, or would it not be sturdy?

    @Dean - The knob is adjustable and spring-loaded so once you tighten it up you could reposition it.

    Can the Gearbox Cage take a Canon 5D Mark III in portrait mode via an L Plate and quick release plate? Specs indicate one pair of extenders would be a very tight fit with no space above. Is it possible to use two pairs of extenders? Thanks.

    Thank you. Please could you list the weights of the P&C GearBox DSLR Cage Video Accessory Bracket, the 7-inch and the 11-inch Friction arms?

    The battery door of my 600D can not be opened when mounted to the Gearbox Cage. Quite disappointing since you mentioned that it will work with canon DSLR's. The unit has a great build quality though.

    @Lynne Hall - A 5DM3 is a tall camera, and it will not work without the extenders. A 717 Quick release plate is not compatible with any other tripod but a 717. The Custom Quick Release baseplate sold on P&C can mount to any standard 1/4-20.

    Would a Canon 5D MkIII plus Custom Fancier 717 QRP fit inside the Gearbox without the extenders?

    Also can you confirm that the 717 QRP is compatible with any make tripod or monopod and especially with the CVP SM1 shoulder mount?

    Anyone any idea on approx. customs charges (%) to the UK?
    Thank you.

    Aye Guys--Great Cage!..BUT Im having an incredibly difficult time finding a quick release plate for the GH2 that will allow the battery door to fully swing open... ANY luck or sugestions that actually work... everything I buy including the smaller: Manfrotto 323 RC2 Rapid Connect Adapter is just too wide..
    Thanks in advance!

    @Dave Navarro - Yes a Canon T4i will fit with a battery grip. The GearBox has an optional 15mm rail clamp that can be worked into a rail system.

  10. what kind of hot shoe adapters or mounts should I purchase to attach my rode video mic (1st kind) to the gearbox. the gearbox looks tight... I'm just trying to figure out what exact mounts to purchase! Please list the links here* so I can start mounting stuff on my cam!

    @QKit - It's not designed to fit with any specific handle, but it does have a bunch of 1/4" inch threaded mounts on the top plate.

    @Jonas Bendsen - Yes, we will be listing extra extensions on the website soon. Right now some of the products are out of stock.

  14. So the 7D and a battery grip is 6.25" tall. Add the quick release plate and it's even taller. Any idea when the extra stackable extenders would be available, and how tall they will be? Obviously I don't want to make a purchase if I'm not sure that I'll have the parts available to me that make shooting with the battery grip and base plate possible. Thanks for your communication via this channel!
