Having an Arca Swiss compatible base plate would be great.
A remote button for starting recordings, as well as an indicator light for knowing when we are recording would also be helpful.
If it is possible, having the ability to tilt the handle would also be very useful.
There should also be some form of notch, or gap, in the base plate for the cable from the dummy battery to run through.
This is something lacking in many cages, and I can definitely see damage on my cables from constantly resting the cage on the cable when placing on a table.
I am definitely looking forward to seeing this product being released.
That's be great if you could had a way to plug the battery to the camera through USB-C, this way, you don't have to use a dummy battery.
Would love for it to be able to sit much closer to the body so the width profile isn’t so wide.
It would be great to control not only the start/stop record in video mode, but to have a proper shutter button, with half pressed position for focus control (video and stills) and shutter control for stills.
Second set of batteries should be bundled
Would it be possible to use the battery to power an external viewfinder? Most EVF need power and do not have a battery attachment. Having the battery in the handle would be very helpful, especially when shooting handheld .
The on/off switch could be a shutter lease button (via USB or other connection) instead.
Please add a light indicating when the camera is recording or not
Would be fantastic if it could be used on either the left or right side of the camera!
