The new BirdCage PRO-S is an innovative professional cage designed to fit like a glove around the latest mirrorless Sony A7RII and A7SII cameras featuring the exclusive LockCircle “Asymmetrical Design Approach” for right hand camera grabbing and control with the original camera ergonomic feeling. Designed for comfortable grip and action, leaving on the left side of the camera all the production tools and accessories mounting: a still and film camera without the limitations of other cages.
The BirdCage PRO-S (S for Sound) is designed for filmmakers using the original Sony sound capture accessories using the (Mi) Multi-Interface Hot Shoe Compatible System.
The BirdCage PRO-S integrates the new LockPort Flex, and a system of mounting plates and Positive-Lock Mounts for universal cine-style lens mounting offering precise professional follow-focus work.
The innovative LockPort Flex protects definitely the fragile micro-HDMI output on your Sony A7RII and Sony A7SII from tough production abuse.
The LockPort Flex System design introduces new concepts to the original LockPort project adding the freedom to benefit the full-size HDMI output in every direction /position on the BirdCage (cables with drones and gimbals needs special care when setting up to avoid undesired camera movements).
The Lockport Flex has three different length cables in kit to reach several output positions and directions.
The BirdCage PRO-S baseplate has a mounting “receiver”for the Meta Block (adjustable), designed for a Metabones “state of the art” mounting/locking, and a IMS-Block for high grade professional Positive-Lock Mounts (PL, Canon EF, Nikon F, Panavision, Leica and M).
Vertical mount of the camera is available and compatible with the LockPort Flex System, and all along the Focal-Plane there are several threads for the (AC) tape measurement hook mounting.
The baseplate has two camera mounting threads (1/4“ and 3/8” with 1/4“ adapter) for heavy-duty safety mounting.
Incredible lightweight, only 200 grams (7 oz.).
