You've probably heard the news and seen the images, but here's a closer video look at putting together the new Shape Cage for the BlackMagic Pocket Camera. The BMPC simply drops into the Shape Cage and is locked in place by a rear sliding metal cover. So even if your system is completely rigged up, the camera can be removed from the cage.

Access to all buttons, menus, battery door / SD card, and ports are easily accessible. A very solid cold shoe above the Shape BMPC Cage can be used to mount heavy accessories (monitors, evf, audio) or to add a Shape Candy Handle. The SHAPE Cage for Blackmagic Pocket Camera can be purchased with or without the bottom 15mm rail adapter.

Just a tip in case BMPC shooters out there are looking for a very short HDMI cable to work with the BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera. I found this 1.5 foot Micro HDMI to HDMI online and took a chance. The cable has been working fine across a few different monitors and EVFs I have. The short cable keeps things tidy with my SmallHD DP4 EVF on the BMPC.


Amazon reviews are a mixed bag, but overall it's still 4 out of 5 stars. If you're looking for a shorty micro HDMI for the BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera, I can safely say this one works great on my setup.
