Yes, it would be helpful if you would explain what you mean by "cage". . I have never heard of such a thing for a DSLR and don't know what you mean.


.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I have a Neewer 15mm rod shoulder support system that I use as a shoulder stock when shooting aircraft with my 150-600. The quality of most of it is fine, apart from the screws that is. The silly little non adjustable quick releases are just rubbish. Still at those prices you can't go wrong.

That was easily dealt with though. I just went to the local commercial fastenings supplier and got some decent quality stainless socket head machine screws to replace them. Most small places like that have a cash sales counter, I think I spent an extra couple of pounds for the screws I used. Or you could go with anodised ones if you really want it to look pretty. One other advantage of going to the local supplier was that I could take the bits in and make sure that the sizes and lengths were all correct.

This is how I have mine set up.
