Mid49 has a prototype upper cage ready to go for the new full-frame Blackmagic Cinema Camera 6K camera that was announced at IBC 2023. The cage is designed to help add functionality without getting in the way.
The Upper Cage is a form-fitting cage with 1/4-20, 3/8-16 with ARRI accessory pins, and M4x20mm ARRI-spaced threaded holes in several places.
Included 15mm accessory rods provide threaded holes, a shoe mount, and a special recess for the Audio Breakout AB-6 (Blackmagic Pocket 6K), which is available as an add-on and converts the camera’s two mini XLRs to two standard, full-size XLRs.
On the side is an HDMI and USB protector that clamps cables securely, and front lens support mount attaches to 3rd party lens adapters.
Lower ARCA Swiss dovetail attaches to our Baseline 15mm Baseplate to provide rods at the correct lens height and is also available separately.
