SmallRig Quick Release Cheese Handle 1649
This cheese handle integrated maximum possible attachment points with its size and weight. Almost every part of the handle can be utilized while kept spacing in between, so when more accessories are attached to it, they won’t interfere with each other.
Place the handle on camera with its NATO rail, find a balanced handeld shooting position, then lock the handle with thumbscrew. You can find one rod hole in left-right direction in the joint, and another in front of the handle. Lock rods in these holes, then you can attach EVFs, microphones on rods.
There are 2 cold shoes in front and back side of handle, in horizontal and vertical directions respectively.
The grip area is patterned with 1/4” and 3/8” threaded holes, and 2 ARRI mounting points.
Imagine what you can do with one single small, light-weighted cheese handle!

Perfect handle that you can easily pop on and off with a NATO rail. Love the ability to adjust the handle forward and back to balance the rig's load as it changes with accessories and lenses. Two cold shoes is a great feature for a shotgun and then maybe a zoom on the rear. Really happy with this!
When I brought it out to use, I found that the one of the teeth of the shoe mount had been dented and a crack was appearing at the joint. It rendered the shoe mount unusable, and possibly even dangerous, as the cracked joint was actually quite sharp. I had to gaffer it up. Was expecting more from this as it's one of the more expensive handles on the site.
Perfect on sony A7II cage!
You'll be surprised how comfy this is in the hand... perfect on my BMPCC ViewFactor cage!
