Description

This is a open box item. It may have scratches, dents, small blemishes or other cosmetic defects but is still in complete working condition. This item still holds our lifetime repair warranty.

The Zacuto Half Cage creates a solid, adjustable, universal cage structure around the side and top of your camera rig. This will be the last cage you need to buy! It is adjustable to work with all cameras, sizes and shapes. It creates great stability, especially when shooting with DSLR’s, giving your camera a sturdy side grip and the ability to add a top grip. The Half Cage is rod mounted so it works independently of your actual baseplate allowing you to adjust its position. It can be positioned and locked via an Allen onto 15mm lightweight rods. The Half Cage features a special magnetic indentation along the side for storing the included Allen key.

The side handle and most of the cheese plate holes are set to work on the right hand side of the camera but can be reversed if a left hand cage grip is desired for 2 handed operation. The Half Cage can mount just in front of your baseplate over the lens or behind your camera on rear rods depending on the balance point of your rig and where you want to add accessories.

At its most compact height, the Half Cage has a clearance of 5.5”. Expand the cage via four Allen screws in the handle side and the maximum clearance grows to 9”. This range will accommodate most any camera size and accessories. The handle side has two rows of ¼ 20 tapped screw holes to attach accessories such as a Zacuto Zud, for Zacuto quick release parts, or threaded accessories like a standard articulating arm or sound recorder etc.. At the top of the handle is a 15mm rod port to attach a Zacuto Zamerican articulating arm , Zud or rods . The handle itself is hand tooled, fine, three quarter maple.

The top portion of the Half Cage is double sided Z-Rail. It gives the ability to attach a top handle, EVF Axis Mount or other Zacuto Z-Rail accessories like the Slide Mount (giving you top rods), cold shoe mount or Z-Rail Z-Mount. There are also four threaded ¼ 20 screw holes for threaded accessories. The Z-rail is double sided so accessories can be mounted up top or under slung.

Zacuto Z-Rail accessories are compatible with NATO, SWAT, RED, PICATINNY, and WOODEN CAMERA type rails.

Very Versatile Cage
There are so many different ways this cage can be configured and I love the way it can fit around whatever camera I am using. The NATO rail that runs along the top provides so many possibilities, which range from providing an adjustable mounting point for a top handle to a highly adjustable mounting point for an EVF. The build of this cage is amazing. Everything feels very solid and the levers lock down tight. I cannot recommend this cage highly enough to anyone looking for a piece of gear that can accommodate many different setups.

Perfect for the range of Canon & Sony DSLR's I use!
I needed a versatile cage that can swap between any Canon or Sony DSLR system and incprporates NATO rails, 14/20 and 3/8 mounting points. This 1/2 cage is a great value and very useful to me.

HALF CAGE
Love this thing. Very comfortable with lots of options to connect what I nee without things getting in the way. Like everything Zacuto makes it's very well thought out and built like a tank.

Great cage at a great price
Even though this is not a complete cage system it's a really versatile cage and works on every camera.

I'm personally not a huge fan of the cage system because it makes the rig heavier and sometimes gets in the way of buttons and menus. The Zacuto version is perfect because it's rock steady and functionally does what it claims, gives additional mounting options and handles. The integrated z-rails are great too.

An extra benefit on the rod based half cage is that if you're using it with the run and gun plates you can lock the rods with the cage so the rods don't unlock and turn with your z-focus and grips.
