Unified Cage (Alexa Mini + LW)
DISCONTINUED This item has been discontinued and is no longer stocked.
Unified Cage (Alexa Mini + LW) is a form fitting cage plus 15mm lightweight baseplate for the ARRI Alexa Mini. It attaches by four M4 screws on top and four M4 screws on the bottom making it extremely secure. The same M4 hole pattern found on the camera body is present on the cage top plate. This allows for attachment of ARRI brand handles and accessories. Arrays of 1/4-20 holes in standard spacing and multiple 3/8-16 holes for large accessories. ARRI accessory mount also available in several places (3/8-16 screw hole with locating pins adjacent).
The cage side pieces feature NATO standard accessory rails with spring loaded safety pins on each end to prevent accidental removal. The NATO rails also feature 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 holes. Clamped to the side rails are two NATO Rosette (ARRI) which adapt an ARRI standard rosette to quick release NATO rail.
Unified Cage (Alexa Mini + LW) also includes a lightweight 15mm support baseplate that allows for 15mm pass through rods. The bottom of the baseplate is comprised of the Lower Quick Dovetail which has 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 threaded holes for attaching to tripod plate or ARRI standard bridgeplate such as Unified Bridgeplate (19mm) or Unified Bridgeplate (15mm Studio) . To remove the camera from the included Lower Quick Dovetail and take the 15mm lightweight rods with you, unlock the left thumbscrew, slide the baseplate backwards a short distance, and lift up. This action exposes an integrated ARRI dovetail slot on the bottom which can attach directly to 2060 Dovetails, Safety Dovetails, or Shoulder Rigs.
For VCT-14 compatible mounting options, the Unified Cage can be attached to the Unified VCT Wedge Plate, providing easy counterbalance ability while on the shoulder. This could then be attached to the Unified VCT-14 Tripod Plate which would be attached to the tripod head.
Additional Unified Lower Quick Dovetails can be puchased to mount to gimbals, jibs, cranes, etc, making for quick and repeatable camera transitions.
** The Unified Baseplate is backwards compatible with our original Quick Dovetail (Standard) and Quick Dovetail (DSLR, Large) **
