F&V BlackMagic Cinema Camera Cage – BMCC Cage

For those of you shooting with the BlackMagic Design Cinema Camera [or looking into the Production Camera 4K], here's a quick and closer look at F&V's new BMC Cage. Assembly is pretty simple, and the final product fits nicely around the BMCC without obstructing any of the ports, doors, buttons, or screen.

At approx. 1/2" thick frame, the cage is rock solid and thick enough to mount accessories to any of the available 1/4-20" or 3/8" threaded holes over the top and along the sides. The frame can be adjusted to a wider setting if you need additional clearance around the sides. Unfortunately neither the Base or Advanced Kits come with a set of 15mm rails, so you'll need to provide your own.

Although there are cheaper BMCC cages available, I would say the build quality of this new F&V BMC Cage is at a very professional level, could easily match any of the more expensive brand names, yet the F&V BMC Cage Base Unit starts at just $369. More information about the BMC Cage (found here).

    are there 3/8 -16 holes on the sides of the cage? i see markers for the 1/4-20 spots the camera left side but i dont see any for the larger size thread? are the two rounded spots on the right side where the 3/8th threads are? its tough to tell for sure from the pictures.

    @Chris - The cage is locked on top and bottom, so it is anti-twist for the camera. The rails are also locked in place, so there is no shift.

    Hey Emm, thanks for the video!

    I can't tell... does the baseplate have a pin for the BMCC's locking pin hole, in order to keep it from rotating? (ex: like this one does)

    You say above that "the bottom part uses two screws," but I'm not quite sure what you mean.

    @Joroen - The bottom part uses two screws to mount under the camera. I don't know if it will be a nice fit, but with all the mounting options i'm sure you can find another 15mm clamp to add to the top.

  5. I was wondering: If I was to get the basic kit, which does not feature the tophandle nor the top-plate, would I be able to attach the part where the 15mm rods go through to the top of the cage, while attaching a quickreleaseplate directly to the botton of the cage.

    Basically just moving the bottom part with the rod-openings to the top and replacing it with a regular, standard QR plate.

    Will the holes allow that?

    @Chung Dha Lam - At an angle it looks like a solid block, but it has been cut to still allow ventilation.
