price is around $320
quality is nice - and cost less than some of the "plate" from different vendor
but they also selling same cage for different price
don't know what is it but I bought first one :)))
Dmitry, wow am I confused. That cage was that cheap, and it arrived? No dodgeyness/scam?
I'm looking at this and don't know what to make of it, because there is nothing that comes even close to as cheap as this http://camera777.com/dslr-rig/41-pro...ed-scalet.html
I do not know what to make of this.
And the reason why it's so cheap? They're a 'cloning' business. Almost no time spent in R&D, labour is cheap, and there's almost no overhead to deal with since they're just found online. The only difference between this product and others, is that it's a Korean guy pressing the button on the CNC mill, and not an American or a German. They're made to the exact same tolerances and use the same billet aluminum. Not sure about their anodizing though.
Here is a look at my rig. Scarlet-X AL with CinemaOxide IDX Plate, x bottom plate w/ 15mm rods clamps and top handle, RedRockMicro Matte box and Follow Focus Blue. Another setup includes the Zacuto EVF mounted off the handle.
GiniRigs are a Korean manufacturer well know within DLSR circles with a solid track record. They have now branched out into creating rigs for Epic/ Scarlet. Whilst I don't own a cage, I do own some rail components & a FF. The build is exceptional, comparable to Zacuto or Berkey, the pricing structure is also exceptional, in a good way. If you jump on US Ebay & look under Red Scarlet or Epic you will see what I mean. I have seen the cage Dimtry has, go for $199. A word about their pricing policy, its all over the place, some items are listed as Buy it Now for $1200, whilst the same item will have a no reserve price @ $199 go figure.
Currently GiniRigs has this
a whole rig including cage, handles, follow focus & shoulder Pad for $499 no reserve . They also have one at 99 cents with no reserve!@$# , no way will it go for that but if your on a tight budget worth considering. In terms of payment & postage I have never had a problem....they are solid.

My standard rig ... my back is killing me today though ... so not shooting anything. Would love in my next project to have something a bit smaller, lmao ... it will probably be more monsterous though.
I really like shooting down though ... not a lot of rigs allow shooting down and up.
Nice setup ...I see what you mean by a sore back.....do you have assistants helping you ?
I was reflecting back on the "old days" on getting similar shots with Elemac "Spiders", jibs & hot heads & three grips & 2 trucks and long set up times. Its amazing how far gear has come........a lot more sore backs then.
