Shape A7sII A7rII Cage Rig

The Sony A7sII and Sony A7rII cameras have been really taking a big market share in the small mirrorless video market. But like most hybrid cameras, you may want to mount additional accessories for shooting video. This will require a rig of some sort, or at least a surrounding cage. With that in mind, here's a closer look at SHAPE's latest Cage system for the Sony A7sII / A7rII cameras with Top Handle and 15mm Base.

SHAPE Product Overview
Designed for the Alpha series from Sony: Sony A7SII, Sony A7R II and Sony A7 II.

The cage is designed to give easy access to the control buttons, the side outputs and the battery compartment; which is an important thing when you are shooting. You will not waste any time removing the camera from the cage to access the memory card or to change the battery. An important feature of this cage is the micro-HDMI cable protector lock on the side to secure the use of your HDMI 4K cable.

By leaving access open to the hot shoe on top of the camera, you can mount different accessories. This cage is compatible with the Sony XLR-K2M audio unit, so you can have great sound for your videos. To install it, simply turn the top handle towards the front of the cage.

Integrated in the cage, we designed a Metabones® adapter support bracket. When there is no Metabones® adapter, the ¼-20 screw is captive so you don’t have to remove it from the cage and simply slide the bracket from under the cage.

The SHAPE Cage is easy to assemble and disassemble; you don’t need to remove any parts of it when you want to install the camera, it’s easy and fast. The camera is fixed with a ¼-20 screw with the threaded hole under it, and the position is secured with the back and the sides of the cage so it will not move forward when equipped with a heavier lens.

In addition to having access to all camera controls, you also have easy access to the lens release button. The support between the lens and the camera grip is designed to anticipate a clearing for the fingers when the camera is handheld, for an ergonomic grip. The cage features several ¼-20 and 3/8-16 threaded holes for attachments and is made from CNC machined aluminium.

As with all our other products, we also included in the design our red push button technology with 360 degree rotation where you can make adjustments by one press of your thumb. The simplest way to adjust handle! When you release the button, the handle locks in place. It’s solid and durable. You can remove the top handle from the cage to reveal a hot shoe adapter for other accessory attachments.

We proudly make our products in Canada, and we offer a lifetime warranty on all CNC machined parts. Our products are solid and durable.

    Hey Emm,
    Does the lens need to be a certain minimum length for this entire setup to work? I have the Sony 35mm 2.8 and it's fairly short so just not sure if the matte box & follow focus would fit properly. (I've also got the Sony 70-200 f4.)

  2. @David - I used a small tool to pry it out. The covers have a small piece that is stuck in the camera body. At the end of that small piece is a rubber arrow. If you can squeeze that arrow and pull it out without damaging it, and you should be able to put it back in if you want.

    Hi Emm,
    How did you remove the plastic covers for the hdmi & audio ports as they are strapped into the camera body ? is there a release for the strap or do you have to cut the strap?

    Thanks in advance.

    @Jay s - Hmm good question. Haven't thought about moving the plate over to a different cage system, but I don't think so. There's two screws that are setup perfectly for the SHAPE, and I don't think it will align with the Zeus.

    Hi Emm, is there any easy monitor solution. I bought the WINBOOK you recommended for the gimbal. I downloaded the app from Sony site, but doesn't seem to work together. Is there a way to use the winbook as monitor for the Sony A7s Mark II???
