The GH5/GH5S Cage is Zacuto's “no-cage” cage for the Panasonic GH5 and GH5s - lightweight and compact, it packs in a ton of features. The GH5 Cage screws into the bottom of the camera with a provided ¼ 20 screw. It also attaches to the sides of the camera, using the Panasonic eyelets neck strap connection with provided screws. It includes a Zacuto camera hand strap for a secure and comfortable grip on the camera. The cage ends at the eyelet neck strap connection, allowing you to use the camera's built in handgrip, keeping the cage small and light and have easy access to all camera controls.
The top of the cage includes numerous ¼ 20 for mounting accessories. It also has a built in Z-Rail for mounting an optional top handle or other accessories. The bottom of the cage has 2 ¼" 20 threads and a 3/8" 16 thread for a tripod plate and a built in dovetail to slide into a VCT Pro shoulder mount baseplate or VCT Pro dock so you can quickly move your camera from handheld, to shoulder mount, to tripod shooting. The dovetail connection point is also where you will connect the optional 15mm lightweight rod support for attaching matte boxes, follow focuses, motors, etc. It will also slide onto our VCT Pro and VCT Pro Dock.
The cage is designed for full access to the camera’s battery door, hotshoe and full button control. There is also an optional Metabones adapter support. Included with the cage is a left wooden handgrip with a built in cold shoe. Putting the coldshoe on the left gets it out of the way of the XLR cables for the optional Panasonic audio module mounted to the camera’s hotshoe. For those using the HDMI output, the cage includes an HDMI cable clamp to hold the full size HDMI cable steady to reduce strain. The cable clamp screws directly into the camera - so you can use it without the cage!
