Really nice build quality.

I have a 7 inch monitor on a magic arm, a zoom recorder, matte-box, follow-focus, and there is still plenty of room to spare.

As for this particular cage, I think it is a great value.

**Update: I wanted to update this older review since I have had a chance to use it more. I now have a full shoulder rig and almost sold this since I wasn't really using it much...but then I purchased a V-mount battery plate and put it on the back half of the rails to see how it worked. I was pleasantly surprised by how useful it was. I traded out the rods for a black set and striped it down to just a follow focus and V-mount battery. Since I run the camera off the battery and never need to access the battery door on the camera, this solves that issue. I cancelled my BMCC order and am on the list for a BMPC, so I will let you know how that works with this cage when it comes in. Bottom line is this is a great cage if a cage is really what you need. I use this handheld, on a tripod, on a slider and on a jib mostly. No gear is perfect, but I am enjoying my "Tank". It's not light so make sure a "Tank" is what you need.**

This was my first camera cage. I run a small video production business as a hobby-gone-horribly-wrong, so take this all into consideration.

PROS:
* Affordable...This is the best cage I could find for the money.
* As the name "Tank" implies, it is very tough and sturdy. Nothing feels cheap or flimsy.
* The fit and finish is very nice and I noticed no scratches or overly sharp edges. The packaging was decent and it was really easy to figure out how to set it all up.
* The Tank will fit a T2i/T3i/T4i with battery grip or camera-only on a quick-plate. I hear it will fit a BMCC although mine is still on back-order so I was not able to confirm it.
* This beast has so many attachment spots that you will never outgrow it.
* The rods and tripod assembly are great quality just like the Tank.

This cage is quite solid and large enough to fit my d800 with the zacuto zfinder pro guerrilla plate.

Made in the USA, at china prices. What else can I say?

I purchased this item, the appropriate shoulder rig and the matte box. All Kamerar products and all described to work together.
I guess someone forgot to mention that the Tank will not work unless you also purchase the magnifying viewfinder with the mount block. Without it, my 7D, T2i, and my 5DMKII's will not mount. The lens hits the matte box, regardless of what lens I use.
I submitted a request for a solution and Amazon told me to contact Kamerar. I did and was told someone else would have to get back to me because the person I talked to could not help with that product.
No call was returned, so I tried to all them again. Multiple days and times and nothing but voice mail.
Clearly this product is not accurately described, requires additional parts to work and the manufacturer is unresponsive.
Good luck if you purchase any of Kamerar's equipment.
Every production where my gear is used I will be sharing my poor customer service experience with Kamerar. Guess what, there really is such a thing as bad publicity.

Yep it's true. Very solid aluminum construction and works great. Nice finish. You can attach almost anything you want and then some! Would be kool if it could accomodate a battery pack for my DSLR not tall enough. It is very solid and works with just the camera and has a spot to change the battery. 5 Stars for a taller one.

Excellent value. Really nice build quality. Used it with my mono pod and as a handheld. Very please. Had a monitor and receiver pack attached with no worries. Used the rails with Kamerar's follow focus. Really made the day to have it.

I am digging this rig accessory! Super heavy duty, solid and tons of places to mount LED, Recorders, other attachments. Absolutely the BEST deal for the price from anything I have used thus far. The build quality is absolutely unreal and the price is insanely good. Thanks again.

This is going to add some weight to your rig, so make sure your tripod head can handle it. It is now too heavy to counterbalance on my 701HDV.

It gives me a ton of options for mounting mics, lights, monitors, etc. I had to remove a swiss rod to use the screen on my 60D, but it still works great.

The thumbscrews on the cage are not ratcheting. I had a problem with the one on the right rod blocking the battery door. I had to put some washers under it so that it would snug down out of the way.

I wish that some of the holes were either unthreaded 1/4" or more threaded 3/8" so I can bolt cold shoe adapters on without having them face the wrong way.

Overall the quality is very good. I would recommend this to anyone looking to add a support system without breaking the bank.
