  • Do I need a cage?
  •   Maybe. Depends what you are doing and your setup

I’m using one so I can attach more things to mine. In my case I want to attach a battery plate and monitor and microphone to my setup.

I also like having a nice handle. And most importantly I like having an hdmi lock.

I accepted no paid endoresment of this product.
