LockCircle Launches the Kinetics XT2 Cage and HDMI/USB Ports Protector

Posted by at 2:43 pm on March 14, 2017

LockCircle has announced the Kinetics XT2 cage for the FujiFilm X-T2 . Its asymmetrical design approach lets you hold the original grip of the camera, and features various threads for accessories as well as a baseplate, and HDMI and USB ports protectors.

The ergonomics of this cage look great! It is designed to fit around the camera with an “asymmetrical design approach” for a right-handed camera grip. This means it is possible to hold the camera using the original grip even when the cage is mounted. (Wish they did one for us lefties)  The weight of the cage itself is 300g (10 oz).

The Kinetics XT2 integrates the MicroPort micro HDMI / USB 3.0 connectors locking and the popular LockPort (micro to full-size HDMI and micro to full-size USB 3.0 output), for serious protection while shooting in rough production environments.

Sadly please do note, as with most cages, the new LockCircle cage can accommodate the camera body only, but not the battery grip. This is a bit of a pity, since the headphone jack for this camera is located on the battery grip. That means it won’t be possible to monitor audio via headphones when using this cage.

There are Several 1/4”-20 (79!) and 3/8” (3) threads are available for multiple accessories and professional mounting.

The Cage Kinetics XT2 baseplate has a Meta-Block mount for Metabones and IMS-Block for IMS-Mounts for monolithic locking. Designed and manufactured in Italy, the LockCircle Cage Kinetics XT2 weighs in at 300 grams, and has several threads to mount the (AC) tape measurement titanium hook.

Availability is planned for late April.
All camera controls remain visible and available as the FUJIFILM XT-2 cage has many cutouts, and offers multiple threads to mount various accessories – 79x 1/4”-20 threads and 3x 3/8”. The cage has also several threads to mount the AC tape measurement titanium hook.

LockCircle is also introducing their HDMI/USB protector as a separate product. It uses a solid clamp that locks to the camera, and micro to full-size HDMI and a micro to full-size USB 3.0 90° rear adapters.

The LockPort XT2 thin camera plate is designed to fit any head, baseplate or sliding plate using the original camera screws. The HDMI/USB 3.0 adapters have gold plated contacts (4K tested/5 Gbps high speed transfer rate) and full-size female outputs for use with standard HDMI and USB 3.0 cables.

The LockPort HDMI/USB protector is available now.
