By associate editor Elliot Smith:
Motion9 were showing some nicely-machined products at IBC this year, including a Sony a7R II / a7s II camera cage and a very compact lightweight slider. The Cube cage features a well thought-through quick release handle that can be adjusted for balance and repositioned on the cage body; and an HDMI port protector that doubles as an extra handle and can be locked and unlocked via a thumbscrew.
The production version will also feature a record button on the exterior of the cage (it’s in a slightly awkward position on the camera itself).The cage will be shipping on the first Friday of October for $330 US.
The Single Linecam slider is a very rigid, very slim design that can be supported on a small tripod head and used with cameras like the Sony a7 series or a Panasonic GH4. It also features some very neat integrated legs that fold away when not in use and are locked in place by thumbscrews. It will be available in 60cm ($185 US) and 80cm ($245 US) lengths at the end of October.
