I've owned a BMPCC since 2014, yet held off on buying a cage because every one that was out either was too small, lazily designed, so minimally designed it barely added any reason to buy it, and was not protective enough. Then, in 2017 this cage comes in and blows every bit of the competition out of the water! The second I saw this cage was officially a design in production I bought it as fast as I possibly could.
Here I am, owning it for just under 5 months and it has lived up to everything I expected it to be. This is the part that made me a loyal SmallRig customer.
This cage has:
-TONS of 1/4"-20 and a couple 3/8"-16 screw holes
-A well-designed, single piece, machined body
-A double screw lock for holding the HDMI port in place
-A perfectly designed grip that lets me hold my entire shoulder rig by just the grip.
-A NATO rail that runs along the entire right side, AMAZING!
-A built in port on top for holding a clamp-down cold shoe accessory
-Plenty of room to access top buttons
-Perfect cut-out to open the battery door so that it is never in the way
-A built in Arca Swiss clampable base built in to the cage.
-It also has strap holders if you wanted to hold this photo camera style
Coming from someone who has looked at every single BMPCC cage put to market, this not only has the most features, but is one of the most reasonably priced. For the amount of features-to-price ratio, this is absolutely the best option.
This even blows the famous Contineo cage out of the water.
I've since built an entire optimized, condensed, small and incredibly sturdy SmallRig custom shoulder rig for the BMPCC.
In conclusion, I did all the research and trial for you, so trust me as a loyal 3 year BMPCC shooter when I say this is the best. So glad I found this company.
