Video-capable DSLRs have forever changed the video and filmmaking landscape. Cameras such as the Canon 5D MKII/III, Canon 7D, and Nikon D800 produce beautifully organic images, thanks to their huge sensors, extreme lowlight capabilities, and wide choice of superb lenses. However, the classic DSLR body – while great for still images – is inadequate for high quality video.
Redrock Micro was the first to recognize the DSLR revolution’s need for modular support gear and cinema style accessories. Now, after years of designing, field testing, and refining, we’ve used all that we’ve learned to bring you ultraCage Black: the ultimate support system for your DSLR.
ultraCage itself delivers the protection, accessory mounting, and form-fitting design, while Redrock's other accessories such as the powerPack, rails, follow focus, and mattebox, deliver a complete solution for everything you need in a camera package.
ultraCage is a thing of beauty. The vertical supports stretch from the ultraBase platform and wrap around the camera to meet the upper support clamp. At top and bottom are 15mm rod
supports, with 1/4"-20
mounting holes along the entire surface of the cage. All buttons and functions are fully accessible
within ultraCage, so there’s no reason to ever take the camera out. LEARN MORE
Wrapped in mounting points, ultraCage opens up your rig to limitless peripheral arrangements. It also acts as a roll bar, should your camera be dropped or hit. And since it leaves the camera clear, you can swap cards or batteries or attach cables in the middle of a shoot, all with the camera safe and secure within ultraCage.
The ultraCage Black keeps all your DSLR camera ports, doors, and buttons completely clear so you can swap cards and batteries or attach cables in the middle of a shoot, all while keeping the camera safe within ultraCage. The wireLock accessory keeps your HDMI connection secure and converts to a full-sized HDMI port.
Like all models of ultraCage, the cage system for DSLRs is modular: make your rig or cage as small or large as you need, in just minutes. And it works with all other Redrock gear, including cinema tools like the microFollowFocus, microRemote system, microMattebox powerPack, and many more.
If you've been holding off trying a cage system, we hear you. You've wanted a cage that isn't needlessly large, heavy, bulky and cumbersome. You've wanted one that's uniquely suited for your camera, that never gets in the way of camera function, no matter how your rig is configured. One that's a utilitarian extension of your camera's own design.
There has never been a better time to convert to a cage system because there's never been a better cage. ultraCage is the new permanent home for your DSLR camera and is as minimal as you need or as colossally accessorized as you want. ultraCage is limitless solutions to unimaginable creativity. All at a revolutionary price!
The backPack accessory for ultraCage delivers a convenient and extremely helpful rear plate on which to attach camera-top accessories. The backPack attaches to the ultraCage rear chassis to keep accessories clear of camera operation while still providing solid and stable mounting.
The powerPack Universal gives you a single point of power for your entire rig. Plug in your standard p-tap power source (not included) and the powerPack delivers power to your camera and up to two additional camera-top accessories. It also delivers power regulation, conversion, and monitoring.
The optional wireLock accessory solves one of the biggest problems with DSLRs: Keeping the HDMI cable connected and safe. The wireLock secures your camera’s HDMI cable and converts it into a full-sized HDMI port. HDMI cable matching, pullouts, and fails are a thing of the past.
