i made that one for filming with the D90.

The rods and baseplate are leftovers from our Letus
the sideparts are made by a friend of mine.

works pretty well and you can use it with any DSLR's without the Battery grip.
Sorry for the Big pictures

uh... they're actually my own design, i was looking for a cheap alternative to the RedRock Rig and so i sketched these up and made some CAD plans.
A friend of mine has connections to a CNC Cutter and so i got them for 800 bucks. Lightweight aluminium.
Everything else are leftover Letus Rods and baseplates.

pm me and i can send you the PDF's if you want.

Great looking cage, Here is another great cage setup that is for the DSLR filmakers. My brother makes these and his products are always better than the big players like Red Rock, Red and others. Check out these pics and let me know what you think. There are also links to more pics here I have a cage setup ordered for myself.

Some very nice set-ups, guys! Just one question for Cody; Do those two bars at the side of the rig interfere with accessing the controls at all?

Hi, The two rails on the side of the cage could hinder access to some of the controls on the left side of the camera but usually the side rails are shortys that run from the front spacer just 3 or six inches to hold a matte box. Same with the rear side rial mounts, Use them for a monitor holder, beer holder uhhhh I mean cold beverage holder, or other items. Watch Easom Optics for those items. message me for availability of demo units for sale. Cody
