It mounts to the camera's tripod socket with a 1/4’’-20 screw, with anti-twist design and rubber cushion on the base plate to prevent twisting. It comes with multiple 1/4’’-20 and 3/8’’-16 threaded holes allowing mount of accessories. For example you can mount SmallRig Top Handle 1984 and SmallRig Wooden Side Handle 2093 for hand-held shooting; mount SmallRig Ball Head Magic Arm 2070 or 2212 to attach monitors; attach SmallRig Cable Clamp 1822 to protect the HDMI cable and port. ARRI locating holes on the top and both sides are perfect for SmallRig ARRI Locating Handle 2165 and SmallRig Ball Head Magic Arm 2115. The cage features built-in Arca Swiss QR plate on the bottom which is super convenient to mount on SmallRig 15mm LWS System 2145 or SmallRig Arca Swiss Base 2143. The cage does not block buttons and ports of the camera.

Nice piece of kit.
Ever since I caged my Canon EOS R with this product - I have never taken it off.
To take full advantage of the EOS R’s video capabilities, this was my first and most important acquisition in transforming the camera into a multi-functional media tool. The cage adds slightly more bulk to the EOS R, however the fact that there are so many options to customise the unit makes it easily the most versatile accessory on my camera. I now have the choice of stabilizing my video by adding one or more side handles, a top handle, a video monitor and light as well as a microphone if needed.
I also attach a Manfrotto style plate which allows me to easily switch it from handheld, to monopod and even onto my DJI Ronin S gimbal.
The fact that this cage has not interfered with any of my camera controls, cables, battery or SD card inserts proves that Smallrig have put a lot of thought into crafting this product. The steady but sleek styling doesn’t take away from the EOS R’s aesthetics either. It sort of inspires me to use the camera more often.
As a result of all this, I don’t think I would use any camera again without a Smallrig cage.
