Hello all,

I know that through times there has been a plethora of offerings concerned weight cages and/or plates.
I was just wondering what is available these days and if anybody has some good advice. I used to only fly big cameras, but it seems like they are either going giant (3D comes to mind) or tiny (7D, HDVs), and I have been getting calls lately for the little guys so it's time to get one of them cages.
Please help me out! :)

Just a few months ago, I bought a weight cage from Janice Arthur. Very happy with it!

I believe she makes 6.5, 11 and 15 lb plates with a choice of long or short rods to put them together. They are great to have. I got the 6.5/11/long rod combo and it's about 19 lbs. I think she has some lighter plates available now (2.5 alum?).

I recently did my first dslr shoot with Charles Papert. He had everything mounted to a 6.5 lb plate via redrock bracketry...so the "camera" was a 20 lbs total.

All interchangeable, any two plates and any four rods $385. One single plate $210.

Let me know what you have questions about.

Thanks a lot.

Janice's weight cage is simple to set up and fantastic to use. In that price bracket there was nothing I could find that came close.
