The new Zacuto Z-cage takes a queue from the old Manfrotto Fig Rig and improves upon by leaps and bounds. The smaller diameter and hefty grips give it a sturdy feel. It leaves lots of room for additions to your DSLR rig. You can practically add just about everything need to the Z-Cage without compromising the maneuverability.
