The GH4 is an incredible camera, but like all small bodied cameras, it can be a real pain to use with accessories or even tripods. That is where cages come in. As someone who reviews gear a lot I’ve seen some pretty horrible cages and some amazing ones. Here are my top 10 picks for the best GH4 cage options currently available.

1. Viewfactor Contineo GH4 Cage ($249)
(available on viewfactor.net)
This is probably one of the best designed cages available for the GH4. I can’t get over how simple and strong it is.

5. Walimex Pro XL Cage ($399)
(Available on eBay and B&H Photo Video)
While the Walimex Pro cage is more expensive than previously mention cages, you can use it with any DSLR or mirror-less camera. This cage even fits many camcorders.
I own this cage and it is one of the best I’ve worked with. Check out my full review in the video below.
6. SmallRig GH4 Cage ($140)
(Available on eBay and Amazon)
The GH4 cage from SmallRig is one of the cheapest cages on the market. If you’re on a tight budget and just want a basic cage for your GH4 this is the option for you.
You can also pick up one of many SmallRig top handles to make this a more usable cage. You can pick up a SmallRig cage from eBay or Amazon.
7. LockCircle BirdCage GH4 Cage ($299+)
(Available at LockCircle)
The LockCircle BirdCage for the GH4 is a solid cage. You can choose from two models. One with a built in LockPort (which is famously one of the best HDMI locks) or a swivel screen model.
The lockport model can interface with Metabones adapters for a super solid lock.
You can pick up a BirdCage for your GH4 at LockCircle.com.
8. Wooden Camera Quick Cage ($399+)
(Available on eBay, B&H Photo Video)
I’ve owned a Wooden Camera Quick Cage for quite some time now and it is still one of my favorites. It is also the most expensive cage I’ve ever owned or seen but it is worth it when you feel how strong this thing is. Like the Walimex Pro cage, the Wooden Camera Quick Cage can be used with almost any camera.
Because of the cage’s strength, you can build a massive rig off of it without worry. Just checkout the animal above.

9. Swedish Chameleon GH4 Cage ($325)
(Available at B&H Photo Video)
This is probably one of the simplest GH4 cage designs out there, and not in a bad way.
10. P&C Honu GH4 Cage ($135)
(Available on eBay, Amazon and P&C)
The Honu cage is one of the first designed for the GH series and is a trusted tool. It is also one of the more affordable options available to GH4 shooters.
