Walimex Pro has added to its Aptaris series of camera cages with a version tailored to the Blackmagic Cinema 4K and 2.5K cameras. The unit comes with two removable 15mm stainless steel rod modules (of 200mm and 250mm in length) at the top and bottom, which provide sufficient space for follow focus, matte box and other accessories (such as a light or microphone).
The modular aluminium system can also be extended to become a lightweight shoulder rig, using a handle and shoulder module.
The cage also comes with a handle that can be fastened at any side and which is particularly useful for ground level filming. The Aptaris system can also be fitted with such accessories as a lens support, a monitor carrier and the convenient cable protection.
