Assembling the cage

Lift Off with Open•UP

The new Canon EOS C500 Mark II Left Field Cage features our new, patented Open•UP quick release system that lets you slide, lock and vertically release in seconds without any risk of the camera coming off.

The quick release system securely works with any ARRI compatible dovetail, even those that are out of spec. The cage has been specifically designed to let camera operators or assistants effortlessly handle the camera, even when using gloves.

Super-secure to vertical lift-off in seconds with the new patent pending Open•UP quick release system.
The C500 Mark II Left Field Cage seamlessly integrates to become a part of the camera.

Seamless Integration

Invited to work with Canon, the Left Field Cage contours around the EOS C500 Mark II to create a load-bearing chassis, protecting the camera. The complete cage only weighs 1 kg (2.2 lb), making it 30% lighter than the current Canon EOS C200 Left Field Cage.

When using the EU-V2 expansion units or CODEX recorders with the EOS C500 Mark II, the top plate can slide back and forth for better weight distribution and balance.
