SmallRig has announced the “Black Mamba” Kit for Canon EOS R5 and R6. I am not sure about the name as the only real ‘Black Mamba’s’ are the snake and KB #24.
- Form-fitting cage for R5 and R6 cameras
- Maintains full access to the camera’s controls
- Comes with an HDMI cable clamp
- Weighs 313g
- Multiple accessory mounts
- Comes with a lightweight ARRI top handle
The SmallRig “Black Mamba” Kit for EOS R5 & R6 includes an ARRI top handle, a full cage, and an HDMI cable clamp.
There is also a built-in Arca quick release plate so you can transition between a tripod and say a gimbal quickly.
The cage not only provides protection for the camera but also includes and multiple 1/4″-20 & 3/8″-16 threaded holes for attaching accessories
The kit weighs in at 313g (shooting gloves are not included ;).
What is interesting to see is that Chinese manufacturers are now putting up patented design warnings with their products. For this cage SmallRig states: ‘This kit has applied for utility and design patents. Any infringement action shall be subject to legal liabilities.’
