This is my third smallrig cage. It’s well thought out but depending on how you use it you might find it slightly frustrating compared to other smallrig cage designs. You need to remove the ring for the camera strap on the right side, this allows you to secure the cage through the eyelet. This might be great for people that leave the cage permanently on, but I take it on and off depending on use, so I prefer previous models for other cameras that didn’t do this. My old cage for my a7s also had a built in arca plate, this one does not, I wish it did. So it’s a good cage, but for me I don’t like it as much as other smallrig cages I have had. I also question if they could have included two cold shoe mounting points, and if they were going to have one maybe they should have just made it a half cage.
Great cage but it seems as if the hdmi clamp. Was not made specifically for this cage. I can’t flip the screen easily. It takes some playing with. Other than that great cage.
