Shape is a small canadian company who’s VDSLR accessories I tend to use often. Their products are high-quality, reliable, built well but tend to be a bit heavy. The Canon 1DC cage is no exception. It’s robust, has a lot of accessory attachment holes and I like the 360 degree push button adjustable top handle. Unfortunately I can’t sugar-coat everything about it. The biggest drawback of this cage? It’s a great one until you run out of battery, then you’ll face a problem. There is no way to replace the battery while the camera is attached to the cage. The only solution I found is to swivel the camera a bit to the left and then take it out, which then leads to the second obstacle: Swivelling will loosen the screw and the access to tighten it up again is almost impossible to obtain while being on the run. it’s a very lengthy, time-consuming process. Hopefully a future similar product will be improved. Music: The music bed, Beautiful Day – Instrumental by Joshua RadinRead more
