SmallRig designers closely analyzed the camera body to make sure the "Black Mamba" cage followed its contours, while ensuring that access was available to all controls and ports. The rugged, lightweight aluminum alloy frame provides protection and offers multiple mounting points for attaching accessories like top handle, side grip, monitor mount, video light, microphone, power supply, and more.

The features that make a difference

  • Access to All Controls – all buttons, levers and ports are unobstructed
  • Full Flexibility – multiple 1/4"-20 threaded holes, Arri positioning holes, cold shoes, NATO rails, and 3/8"-16 threaded holes, provide compatibility with SmallRig’s complete product ecosystem
  • HDMI & USB-C Cable Clamp – the hand-tightened cable clamp ensures the cables stay securely attached for safe transfer of data and sound
  • Ergonomically Designed Grip – the smooth shape and compact design makes handling fast and comfortable
  • Quickly Switch Platforms – the built-in Arca-Swiss quick release plate lets you instantly switch from handheld to tripod to gimbal shooting

Exclusive innovations include: 

1) A detachable extended baseplate that not only improves balance and stability by allowing you to move the camera further back on the platform, it also serves as a riser plate for increased clearance when attaching a bottom rail

2) Multiple Power Supply Solution kits that offer increased recording time whether you’re shooting handheld or tripod, shoulder rig, or stabilizer mounted
