by planetMitch4 Comments

Our friends from Cinevate have launched this new ‘Crash Cage' which also has a ton of mounting points.

How do you use your cage? Does yours prevent damage to your camera?

Cinevate has just launched the Crash Cage!

The Cinevate Crash Cage is a solid metal fortress for your camera. Constructed from solid aluminum, the Crash Cage can take a beating so that your camera doesn't have to.

A run and gun shooting style demands the ability to switch setups quickly and securely. The Crash Cage is the foundation for that setup. Easily switch from a tripod to a slider, or go handheld, knowing that you can move your camera safely and quickly, and in time to get your shot. The quick release plate options give you the ability to remove your camera from the cage in a snap.

With over 80 mounting points, the Crash Cage provides a wide variety of options for mounting your microphones, monitors and other key accessories. Optimize your rig by taking advantage of the CNC machined coldshoe mount, the 49 threaded mounting holes and the 31 thru holes. Strategic access points in the cage allow you to feed cables through to your camera, as well as easily lock these cables in place with the addition of Lock Blocks.

The Crash Cage can be as simple as a protective cage, or it can serve as the building block for your full-blown rails system. Additional weights, when added to the Crash Cage, transform it into a perfectly counterbalanced rig for flying your camera on a Steadicam or Glidecam.

  1. This is a much needed device for sure. I’ve had my fair share of problems from not having protection like this. I will probably be purchasing one of these very soon. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. This site rocks!

  2. That is a really good price to start at. I am for sure going to get my hands on one of these for my camera. Seriously though, the starting price alone is enough for me to consider picking one up. ;)

    1. I totally agree, the price alone is getting me to grab this. I don’t really own a lot of good equipment, because to me everything is so expensive, but this is right up my alley, so I am going to pick up one soon. I hope I can start getting famous so I can afford to upgrade to better equipment though.

  3. I got one of these and I will say they are very useful. I have been a fan of Cinevate’s high quality products for some time now, and I think it’s about time I use their services exclusively. They’re just that good!
