When cinematographer/director Paul Leeming of Leeming Lut Pro fame came by the ‘Untitled’ home office earlier this year, he brought his Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 rigged up with an 8Sinn cage and Scorpio top handle, Universal Rod & Metabones Support and one of his extensive collection of vintage manual focus prime lenses.
I had a brief tryout of his 8Sinn gear and was impressed at its thoughtful design, manufacturing quality and excellent feel in the hands.
8Sinn’s design philosophy appears to be one of utility due to plenty of connection points in all the right places combined with ample wrap-around protection done in an ergonomic manner that bestows easy access to the camera’s buttons, dials, doors and other controls.
Not an easy list of requirements to fill and now 8Sinn has applied that philosophy to its cage for Blackmagic Design’s Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and a nascent but growing collection of cage accessories, recently with its Monitor Holder Cold Shoes Mount and soon its holder for the Samsung Portable T5 SSD.
