The new GH5 Cage for Panasonic’s Lumix GH5 camera is a ‘no-cage’ cage – designed to be so lightweight and compact, you wouldn’t know it’s there, allowing full access to the camera’s battery door, hot shoe and full button control.
It screws into the bottom of the camera with a provided ¼-20 screw, and also attaches to the sides of the camera using the GH5’s eyelets neck strap connection with provided screws. It comes with a removable wooden grip with a cold shoe on top, and a hand strap.
The $495 cage includes numerous ¼-20 points for mounting accessories. It also has a built-in Z-Rail for mounting an optional top handle or other accessories (without blocking the GH5’s add-on XLR audio box). The bottom of the cage will take a tripod plate and has a built in dovetail to slide into a VCT Pro baseplate or VCT Pro Dock so you can quickly move your camera from handheld, to shoulder mount, to tripod shooting.
It includes an HDMI cable clamp to hold the full size HDMI cable steady to reduce strain – without blocking the flip-out LCD screen.
