The X-Cage was designed to increase the versatility of the Fujifilm GFX100s, while not adding much additional weight or size to the camera.
LockCircle wanted to include enough features with the X-Cage so that GFX100s could be used in productions where a lot of additional components and rigging is required.
The X-Cage offers 150 1/4-20″ and 7x 3/8-16″ threads for adding accessories such as viewfinders, HDMI Recorders, and monitors.
The X-Cage integrates with the CineBlock mount which allows shooters to use the original GX-PL Mount if you need to use PL glass on the camera.
The cage also features MultiPort HDMI / USB 3.0 / Audio connector port protection.
The camera baseplate provides secure mounting (no twisting) with 1/4-20″ and 3/8-16″ threads.
The cage tips the scales at 245g / 8.6 o.z, and it has several threads to mount an (AC) tape measurement hook.
There is also an ultra-lightweight MicroMega-M baseplate for standard 15mm rods and an Arri BP-8 Baseplate Adapter for use with ARRI 19mm rods.
