Why You NEED a Camera Cage (SmallRig Review for Sony a7III/a7R III)

In this video I share why I think a camera cage is one of the best accessories for filmmakers, YouTubers, and other creators. I also quickly review the Sony a7R III camera cage from SmallRig that I personally use.

Camera cages provide more stable footage, nearly endless mounting points for monitors, microphones, lights, and other accessories, plus the ability to capture a wider array of shots.

I much prefer a camera cage to a gimbal or motorized slider, because the setup time is next to nothing, and I don't really need to make any adjustments to my regular workflow.

I use the Sony a7R III camera cage from SmallRig, and really love the build quality and design decisions they made (with the exception of one thing I mention halfway through this video), but there are other options out there.

Big thanks to Mac Olink for the footage of his dope setup. I definitely have some catching up to do...
