I shared these little extended shaft D-ring screws in an earlier post, but here's the real reason why I have them around the studio. The extended shaft works great to mount accessories to your DSLR Video Cages, and the D-Ring makes tightening or loosening the screws easy without tools. Just yesterday I used these to mount my sennheiser G3 wireless kit Sennheiser G3 Wireless Receivers to the GearBox directly to it's 1/4-20 mount without having to use an additional hot shoe adapter.

I can guarantee that these will work perfectly on the GearBox Cage P&C GearBox Video Cages (found here), and also on the Kamerar Tank Cage Kamera Tank Video Cages (found here). If you happen to have a different cage, the shaft on these screws are about 13mm so you can easily measure if these will work for you too. You can find these Extended Shaft D-ring Quick Release screws via eBay (Click Here).

dual-bracket (1 of 1)

Earlier I posted about how you can use a rotating flash bracket to add an extra hotshoe to your camera. The rotating flash bracket is nice, because it acts like somewhat of a half DSLR cage, but here's another option. This dual bracket mounts to the top of your Canon EOS 5D Mark II or Canon 7D. Not sure if I would put this type of weight onto a 550D / T2i, but that's your decision. Available through the links below.
