SmallRig NATO Cheese Handle 1688 is clamped onto a NATO-compatible rail and features 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting holes for connecting accessories, as well as a single 15mm rod port. Moreover, the integrated shoe mounts at both ends are attached with shoe mount style accessories, such as LED lights, microphones, etc. The handle comes with the hole pattern for ARRI accessory mount pins. Meanwhile, the exquisite design with an array of mounting points makes the grip convenient. Except for sliding forwards and backward on the NATO rail to keep your camera balance, the handle could be adjusted back and forth for the balanced position of your rigs. This handle is ideal for low-mode shooting and your camera.

I am using this superb product on the left side of my SmallRig GH5 cage, when shooting handheld using the built-in monitor, with the right hand on the camera's handgrip. When needed, I can mount an LED light, a radio receiver etc. on top, and a 15mm rod for follow focus at the bottom. It would certainly be strong enough for heavy cameras like C300, FS7 or even RED and AMIRA, and it will attach to many other cages with NATO rails, also!
This implementation of the cheese handle is brilliant - with this on the left hand side of my cage and a ThumbsUp in the cold shoe on the right it gives the most stable arrangement I've found so far for hand-held shooting. 10/10 to SmallRig for product development, and 11/10 for customer service!
