The flexible new Walimex Pro Aptaris Universal Frame cage system can be combined with almost any DSLR, mirrorless camera or small form-factor camcorder as it is adjustable in height and width.
The cage allows easy mounting of accessory monitors and recorders, such as the Atomos Shogun, and is the first Aptaris cage allowing for adjustment not only in height (from 78mm to 130mm), but also in width (160-252mm). An optional Aptaris Universal XXL Adapter can then provide a further extension of 25mm.
The €479 Universal Frame weighs 500g and has numerous 1/4-inch and 3/8-inch threaded holes on both its Top Plate and Side Supports, allowing considerable flexibility in mounting such accessories as lights or microphones. The Frame also has a bubble level, while precisely machined interfaces on the Top Plate allow for the simultaneous use of up to two optional Aptaris L Brackets, and a new integrated Quick-Release interface on the Base Plate provides simple attachment to the Aptaris Rod Module.
All important camera operational points, such as memory card slot, battery compartment and connector sockets, remain free and accessible. The included Aptaris Large Handgrip can be mounted via Minirail either on the Top Plate or Side Supports – the Handgrip provides additional 1/4-inch and 3/8-inch threaded mounting points.
