LockCircle Cinematic X Cage for the Fujifilm GFX100S


I own the Fujifilm GFX100S and it astonishes me every time with its image quality.

But so far I haven’t shot a single video with it, and quite frankly, I think I never will.

However, that sensor, 70% fuller than full frame, is also astonishing video performer. Philip Bloom for example shot an entire documentary with the original Fujifilm GFX100. Gosh, some of you even mount a GFX camera on a drone for some epic areal footage!

And since the GFX system is flexible enough also for video work, there GFX cages out there, for example from Smallrig.

Now we have a new addition, coming from LockCircle, and it’s made for the Fujifilm GFX100S. You can see some images above and you find the press release, details and links below.

This cage is designed for high end professional medium format cinematography. So if this is your thing, definitely check it out. And since the GFX50SII uses the identical body, I guess it would work on that one too. But I the GFX50SII does not shoot 4K video, so I guess it is not as an attractive video option as the GFX100S.
