SmallRig was showing its new Mobile Video Cage for iPhone 15 Pro Max at Inter BEE 2023 in Japan.
The cage is made out of aluminum alloy and it supports MagSafe wireless charging. It also features plenty of options when it comes to mounting accessories.
- For iPhone 15 Pro Max
- Multiple Cold Shoe Mounts
- Multiple 1/4″-20 Threaded Holes
- Hand Strap Hole
- Compatible with M-Mount Lenses
- Swappable Lens Backplate
- Allows Access to All Buttons and Ports
- Built-In Pads
- Horizontal and Vertical Shooting
There are ten 1/4”-20 threaded holes, and two cold shoe mounts.
The one-piece design and compact design allow for quick setup. The cage also uses SmallRig’s “One-Click” locking system. As the cage features a hollowed design it gives users full access to the phone’s buttons.
SmallRig’s Quick Release Ecosystem also allows tool-free installation, so you can attach or remove the convertible side-to-top handles.
There are also three locating holes on the body of the cage.
On one of the handles, there is also a Bluetooth start/stop recording button.
You can use an optional Universal SSD Mounting bracket to attach an external drive. I asked SmallRig if they were looking into other options so that you could mount an SSD to the back of the cage and they told me that was something they were looking into. I think the reason they didn’t do it is so that you could still run a MagSafe battery on the back of the phone.
In addition to the three lenses on the iPhone 15 Max Pro, the cage lets you attach M-Mount lenses (17mm/37mm threaded lenses and T-series lenses with optional backplates) and magnetic filters (VND, CPL, Star Cross, and ¼ Black Mist).
