Motion9 are showing off their new “Cube Shogun” a versatile cage for the Atomos Shogun that protects and enhances the disk recorder’s outer shell. Motion9 is a company we’ve been following that has so far been distributing within Korea. Only this year they started entering the international market with a few very interesting products, one of them being a great cage for the Sony Alpha a7S. At NAB 2015 motion 9 showed us their prototype of the motion9 Shogun Cage which offers protection for all the out- and inputs on the device. This is especially good for those people who want to protect some of the ports, like the power connector that some people have reported can become loose. Furthermore the cage offers director’s handles and an optional battery solution for increased running time. With the release of the GH4 firmware update that will soon offer Vlog anamorphic and the Shogun’s support for a wide range of new cameras like Arri, AJA, Canon and Sony for RAW, this might be a product that many are looking forward to.

We’ve reported about the Teradek cube before. It’s almost a “cube” with a hotshoe below it so you can mount it on your camera and stream hdmi directly to your iPad or another network capable device. In this video the Cube people show how it works as a directors wireless field monitor. Great, and at $1199 a great affordable deal. However there is a lag, so you should be careful about using it as a monitoring device to control focus or your camera. With the new firmware update the device now won’t cause trouble on hdmi switching cameras like the 5D or T2i. This is the model you want to use with your iPad, but there are several other models which you can see here or on the Teradek Cube website itself. via Vincent’s blogRead more
