The Wooden Camera BMPCC 4K cage is a form fitting rig for Blackmagic’s hotly anticipated Pocket Cinema Camera 4K.
The Wooden Camera cage leaves the camera’s integrated grip uncovered and features a folding handle that you can reposition on the side of the cage to use as a grip there via a 15mm rod connection.
There are plenty of 1/4″20 and 3/8 mounting holes on the top and side of the cage, an HDMI protector (including a right-angle adapter) and a quick release based on the Manfrotto video dovetail. This means you can slot it straight into a compatible Manfrotto tripod if you want to.
Build it and they will come (to admire your rig)
If you’re after a more built-out rig as seen in Erik’s video above you can dock it with Wooden Camera’s DSLR Baseplate, which will let you add 15mm rods for a follow focus or other accessories. Those might include a power solution that offers more juice than the camera’s own battery – Blackmagic’s previous Pocket Cinema Camera was quite power hungry and the new model apparently continues this tradition.
There’s also a lens adapter support included so if you’re using a Metabones adapter with the BMPCC 4K you can tie into the 1/4″20 on the bottom and avoid any wiggle from the lens mount.
