I had this cage made.

It consists of the following:

- 2 bottom parts (one for attaching dovetail to cage and for attaching camera to cage)
- 3 top plates (weighing in at 1.890kg/4.1lbs each)
- 6 different attachment holes for camera

The cage when fully assembled weighs 10kg/22lbs. You will need at least one top plate, so at its lowest it can weigh 6.22kg/13.71lbs. Its third weight can be 8.11kg/17.87lbs.

It will fit most cameras in the 1/3" and 1/2" range. Tried it with a XDCAM-EX1 yesterday.

The technician that made it will make more upon request. I paid €500.


If interested in buying one:

please contact Michael Hofmann at Hofmann Teknikk in Sweden, mail: m(at)hofmann.se
The machinist who makes them is called Per and works for Hofmann. His mail is per(at)hofmann.se

Can Hofmann Teknikk also make an anti-weight cage that would take weight off? Leave the inertia, that's fine. :rolleyes:
