Redrock Micro Launches New Cobalt Cage, the First Cage for GoPro Hero3

Redrock Micro announced today its new line of Cobalt Cages and accessories for the GoPro cameras, including support for the new GoPro HERO3. The Cobalt Cage delivers an aluminum housing that encases the camera for protection, mounting and rigging support, and extensive accessory attachments.

Constructed from precision-machined, military-grade aluminum, this GoPro cage is impact-proof, crash-proof, crush-proof and bulletproof, making it an essential GoPro accessory for keeping the camera secure and shots rock-solid and stable. The Cobalt Cage's reinforced, high tensile design gives shooters extra confidence when using their GoPro in extreme POV, risky camera setups or insane camera mounts.

The Cobalt Cage opens up mounting possibilities with four sides of industry-standard 1/4" taps. This enables GoPro cameras to be mounted directly to standard video gear including fluid head tripods, ballheads, and suction cups. The Cobalt Cage's multiple attachment points support three-point rigging for the ultimate in shot stability and camera placement. A GoPro finger mount plate is also included so existing GoPro accessories and GoPro mounts can also be used with the Cobalt Cage.

Attaching accessories to the Cobalt Cage is easy. Mount up LED lighting, microphones, additional power--anything needed to elevate the shot's production value. For example, a naked GoPro in the Cobalt Cage, a suction cup, microphone, and LED light can be used for interior car shots with superior picture and sound. An optional shoe mount can be added to the cage for attaching shoe-mount accessories as well.



The Cobalt Cage is the only full cage that delivers maximum protection, offers use with or without the Hero underwater housing and enables full access to all ports, switches and card slots. It also secures the camera with 6 points of contact (not just the finger mount), provides 22 mounting points on all four sides for rigging AND accessories and is compatible with all GoPro camera add-on accessories. All this comes at a price most of you will be satisfied with: $99.

im glad it leaves access to the hdmi port, its the one stupid thing about the frame from gopro

This would be great to attach an optical viewfinder such as a Leica / Voigtlander 24mm, but by the time you add a cage + VF... it's hardly a GoPro still!

Seriously, they're not the first to market with this idea, just undercutting Wide Open Camera a bit with pricing.

Seriously? You think something that just recently went on Kickstarter was the idea for this? LOL. First off they're quite different in execution and second this sort of thing is not in the least bit new to the GoPro world. Do a search for GoPro cages.

Oh dear, it seems six people agree with him...
So sad.

Malcolm - Our Cobalt Cage for GoPro Hero2 has been available and shipping since late last year. Our design for the Hero3 since was been around since that time as well. Jared started his campaign in late March this year, so I'd say we're a good 3 months ahead of that kickstarter project.

Wide open camera wasn't the first to market a cage for the go pro either.
