Another great product from SmallRig. A well designed and high quality cage for A5000 / A5100 for a very reasonable price. The A5100 is way too small for my hands so this cage makes the camera more substantial without adding too much weight. The cage fits the camera like a glove and has no play. The pop out flash is not obstructed and all the cameras buttons are accessible. You still have access to the SD card slot and other ports. This cage is all metal so the build quality is fantastic.
The only negative from my perspective is I wish SmallRig added in a built in Arca-Swiss plate at the bottom of the cage like on A6500 cage. It is easy to screw in the 2146 Arca-Swiss plate to the bottom of the cage if needed. You can also screw in the 1195 NATO rail on top of the cage if required.
I highly recommend this A5000 / A5100 cage from SmallRig. This is the only A5100 /A5100 cage on the market.
