What is the best cage and small rig system for the bmpcc ?


I am looking to buy a cage for the BMPCC. I mainly intend to combine it wiht a mic NTG2/rode video mic pro/stereo video mic pro, a zoom H4 or something like, external battery and a screen and small led panel. The idea is to shoot short films and at times work stealthy is possible with less gear.

Which do you think is best and why ?

I use this one on our BMCC. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=978801&gclid=CKyR... The quality is great, I realize you have a BMPCC so this one might be worth a look http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?N=10997345&InitialSearch=yes&sts=pi Here's an anecdote. I less than careful AC of mine did not understand the quick release plate and one of our BMCC fell to the ground. Now, yes our tonkina 11-16mm needs to be repaired and the cage is pretty bent…but our camera is fine, and this was a 5 foot free fall onto concrete. Not a scratch.
