DSLR Cage

The rumors are true. I've heard through the grapevine that a cheaper DSLR cage would be made before the year ended. This appears to be that cage. [Thanks Serge]. This particular cage works mainly on Canon DSLR cameras giving access to the card slot and battery door. Not tall enough to support a battery grip.

It's a fair option to add a bracket around your camera to help mount additional accessories, but i'm a bit sketchy on the way the seperate parts are mated together. Doesn't look like the best method to use when joining two parts that thin - dare I say 'flimsy'? I personally think the starting price is also too high, especially when you could get a better stabilizer out of the Alzo cage found here: https://cheesycam.com/alzo-dslr-accessory-cage/.

We'll have to wait to hear more and see some reviews, but this particular new Canon DSLR cage can already be found via eBay (click here).

We finally get to see a video review of the ALZO Transformer DSLR Rig Accessory Cage. If you've collected quite a bit of external accessories, a cage is a simple way to keep things together while moving your about. Vimeo member Brian Russell shows how it's in use with a JuicedLink DT454 and an external Monitor. The handles of a cage aid in stabilization when going hand held, and not seen in the video could be the optional top handle from Alzo if you need to shoot low. The Alzo cages are available on Amazon (click here).
