There are a a multitude of reasons to have a cage for your camera:
- Stabilization when carrying around – like a Fig Rig.
- Low carry option (i.e. top handle).
- Multiple mounting points for accessories.
- Ability to easily convert your camera to a serious video option.
- Easily mounts to a compatible tripod.
In this video, I am reviewing a cage put out by a company called SmallRig. It’s the first cage that I have ever purchased and I also show the third party bolt-ons that I added to it as well. Lastly, I talk about a table tripod that the cage easily sits in.
