Kondor Blue Sony FX3 Cage
The cage allows you to protect and mount a variety of accessories to the camera while still keeping it small and lightweight. The cage has multiple accessory mounting points, including 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16 with ARRI-style anti-twist divots. NATO rails are built into the removable side pieces of the cage, and the NATO rail on top of the cage can be removed, allowing you to use the Sony FX3 XLR top handle.
In addition to the removable top NATO rail, the top of the cage features a cold shoe with a safety pin arrangement designed to prevent your cold shoe-mounted accessory from accidentally falling out. The bottom of the cage features a raised front that helps keep your camera from twisting in the cage, and an integrated Arca-Swiss plate makes it easy to mount your camera/cage directly on a tripod head with an Arca-Swiss QR mechanism.
The built-in Arca Swiss Plate on the bottom of the cage allows compatibility with the new DJI Ronin.

The ARRI-style threads on the top feature pre-inserted 3/8″-16 to 1/4″-20 bushings so you have additional options for mounting your accessories.
