Sony A7R3 cage 15 mm rod system (A73ROD)

Top Handle

The ergonomic and removable SHAPE Top Handle was designed to provide the required space for mounting the Sony XLR-K2M audio unit. It offers a comfortable and secure wooden grip for carrying your camera and securing accessories. It also features the SHAPE Push-Button Technology, enabling you to balance the weight and rotate the handle in the position you need on a 360° axis.This nicely crafted Top Handle provides multiple mounting options, including ARRI Standard 3/8″-16 anti-rotating hole patterns on the top, SHAPE Standard 1/4″-20 anti-rotating hole patterns on the top and side, cold shoe mounts, and a 3/8″-16 UNC threaded hole at the front. It also features the SHAPE Rod Clamp Holder positioning system at the front, allowing you to directly mount a 15mm rod onto the handle.

Quick Release Rod Base System and Metabones® Adapter

The cage is connected to its base via the new SHAPE Quick Release Rod Base System using a specifically designed 15 mm rod bloc system for the optical center of the Sony A7R III camera. It allows quick mounting and dismounting of the camera and the cage can easily snap in and be quickly removed from its 15 mm LW base by pressing the release button at the rear of the mount for handheld shooting.

Changing the objective or adding a Metabones® Adapter can be done easily while keeping the camera in the cage. SHAPE created a removable Metabones® Adapter Support Bracket specifically designed for the Sony A7R III camera that is integrated in the cage. Fixed with 2 screws, the bracket’s height is easily adjustable and provides 15 mm of vertical adjustment. It supports the weight and reduces the stress on the camera lens mount. When there is no Metabones® Adapter, simply unscrew the 1/4″-20 screw to quickly remove the bracket.

Sony A7R3 cage (A73CAGE)

Sony A7R III, A7 III camera cage

The SHAPE Sony A7R III Cage is targeted at filmmakers, videographers and photographers who want a simple, hassle-free and ergonomic cage design that really works.  Specifically designed for the Sony A7R III and A7 III cameras, the form-fitting cage offers additional protection and securely locks the camera to the cage. It also provides easy access to all controls and ports as well as multiple attachment points for accessories. For handheld shooting, the side 15 mm rod clamps, located at the back of the cage, are designed for quickly securing the new ergonomic Mini Push-Button Wooden Side Handles with Padded Straps using a single ratchet knob on each side (A73CHH).

The SHAPE Sony A7R III Cage enables easy access to all of the camera’s features such as the control buttons, the side outputs, the memory card, the battery compartment and the lens release button, allowing you to save time while shooting. Further, the support between the lens and the camera grip is designed to anticipate a clearing for the fingers when the camera is handheld, allowing an ergonomic grip. This ergonomic cage is easy to assemble and disassemble and the components don’t need to be removed to install the camera that is fixed with a 1/4″-20 captive slotted base screw integrated into the cage, using the threaded hole underneath it. The position is secured to the back and sides of the cage, so it doesn’t moves forward when equipped with a heavier lens. You can also attach a delta adapter plate underneath the cage to mount it on a quick release plate to rapidly switch from a tripod to a handheld setup.

Additionally, all the doors and latches are fully operable when the camera is in the cage. Its easy-to-use and clever design enables you to operate the camera without having to remove the cable doors, and the strap hooks can remain attached to the camera while inserted in the cage. It is also equipped with an effective cable retainer system for all three of the left side cables to secure their use. The cage is also compatible with a full-sized HDMI cable protector lock to secure the use of your HDMI 4K cable. By leaving an open access to the hot shoe on top of the camera, you can mount many accessories using several mounting options including two cold shoe mounts located on the top of the cage as well as many SHAPE Standard 1/4″-20 anti-rotating hole patterns, Arri Standard 3/8″-16 anti-rotating hole patterns and 3/8″-16 threaded mounting holes. Made from CNC machined aluminum, the cage allows the camera to be held securely in place and restricts it from rotating by being attached with two anti-rotating tabs at the front. Furthermore, the cage is compatible with the Sony XLR-K2M audio unit, thus providing great sound for your videos. It also features an ARRI Standard Rosette that can be mounted in four different locations.
