If you're not familiar with the CagePro, it's a new GoPro Hero3 Accessory Cage that houses a Canon LP-E6 battery used to power up your GoPro Hero3 for over 5 hours of continuous run time. It started out as merely a concept with working prototypes but was quickly 'Bumped' right into production on it's first day.

    we'll be purchasing a few immediately when available.


    1 - looks like they are supplying power through the usb in.

    2 - to do this AND have it be weather/waterproof will drive the cost up, so they should release the first design so they can try and hit their target of around $100

    3 - if $100 is too much for the cage as is, you probably don't need it.

    Not sure if you have finalized the design, but would it be possible to use a picatinny rail (the same one being used by NATO, Zacuto, etc.)? That way the top hand would be adjustable and much quicker to mount?

  3. this might make me get a go pro hero 3...i hope the final product is not more expensive than the camera itself...because this really seems to be a game changing peripheral for those who rely on these great little cameras...might make them less destructible...

    @Apostolos - Thanks, I think i've seen this video a million times. Perhaps this chicken brain was used to program the FreeFly MOVI gimbal.
