The GH5 Cage is Zacuto's "no-cage" cage for the Panasonic GH5 Mirrorless Lumix Camera - Micro Four Thirds (MFT). It is lightweight, compact, and packed with a ton of features.

The top of the GH5 Cage includes numerous 1/4-20 for mounting accessories. It also features a built-in Z-Rail for mounting an optional top handle or other accessories. The bottom of the cage includes (2) 1/4-20 threads and a 3/6-16 thread for a tripod plate. Plus, a built-in dovetail to slide into a VCT Pro shoulder mount baseplate or VCT Pro dock so you can quickly move your camera from handheld, to shoulder mount, or to tripod shooting.

The base of the CH5 cage includes a dovetail. The dovetail connection point is where you will connect your optional 15mm lightweight rod support. This allows you to attach your mattebox, follow focus, motors, etc. It will also slide onto your Zacuto VCT Pro and VCT Pro Dock.

The GH5 Cage screws into the bottom of your camera with a provided 1/4-20 screw. It also attaches to the sides of the camera, using the Panasonic eyelets neck strap connection with provided screws. It includes a Zacuto camera hand strap for a secure and comfortable grip on the camera. The cage ends at the eyelet neck strap connection, allowing you to use the camera's built in handgrip, keeping the cage small and light and have easy access to all camera controls.

Included with the cage is a left wooden handgrip with a built-in cold shoe. It connects to the Z-Rail or NATO rail on the left side of your camera. You can slide it up and down to suit the appropriate position you require. Putting the cold shoe on the left moves it out of the way of your XLR cables used for the optional Panasonic audio module mounted to the camera's hot shoe. 

The cage is designed for full access to the camera's battery door, hot shoe and full button control. There is also an optional Metabones adapter support. For those using an HDMI output, there is an optional Zacuto HDMI cable clamp to hold the full size HDMI cable steady to reduce strain. The cable clamp screws directly into the camera - so you can use it even on days you are not using the GH5 Cage.
