Shape Brings a Versatile Cage for the Atomos Shogun 4K Recorder

The Atomos Shogun has proven to be very popular with not just Panasonic GH4 or Sony A7s shooters, but with other folks who want to get a really nice monitor with 4K recording options. Pretty soon Sony FS7 and FS700 owners will be able to get FS Raw out of their 4K babies with Shogun firmware updates scheduled for June, and even though it is priced lowered than the Convergent Design Odyssey7Q+ for example, it is still quite an investment. Naturally, one would want to protect their Shogun due to the somewhat fragile nature of the screen and design, we’ve seen an increased demand from a lot of users want to have a cage or similar type protective solution. We did a write up on the Kaval Cage for the Shogun from PV Gear recently, and now Canadian filmmaking accessories manufacturers Shape have a cage of their own for the Atomos Shogun.

Atomos Shogun Cage Shape

The Shape cage for the Shogun starts at $339 (at the moment on pre-order) and features multiple 1/4 20-inch holes for mounting various accessories, and features an option for 15mm rod mount bracket version (priced at $549) with Shape’s own push button design for easy tilt and swivel adjustment, while mounted on 15mm rods. This options is quite a neat alternative to Noga arms and magic arms, which can wear out overtime and some of the cheap ones can be quite unreliable at times. Having a 15mm support solution is a much better option in my opinion.

    Looks like a nice start. As a Shogun owner, there are two problems that I’d like to solve: 1) protection for the screen and plastic case and 2) the ability to see the screen more effectively when shooting outdoors. Would be really nice to see someone solve both problems in one piece of gear. Nevertheless, the Shape cage looks nice.

      Curtis, thanks for the input, good to hear from you, big fan of your Youtube channel here. I agree with you the Sunhood that Atomos make is a must have for Shogun owners, its a bit too bulky for my taste, but works. Also, love your videos mate, keep them coming, learning a ton about audio. Thanks again, Ogy.
