Hi, if anyone is interested - Smallrig is currently producing a custom camera cage for the Chronos via Dreamrig....

That was posted a year ago. Sadly I have not heard back from them since then.

So it is thanks to Somosrobolt https://www.instagram.com/somosrobolt/ on IG he shared the cage he uses for the Chronos.


The cage is 1584 for Canon. It fits. You need the 2060 cold shoe as well. You bolt the cold shoe to the top of the Chronos and the top of the cage has a shoe tab that slide into that cold shoe.

I flipped the right side brackets so it helps to clear the battery door. You still need to rotate the camera a bit to clear the bottom of the cage. Another minor issue is pulling the SD card. It sits under the cage and I found it easier to loosen the cold shoe tab screws, slide it forward, and loosen the bracket arms so the top of the cage can be removed and now I can remove the SD card.


Can you re upload  the images I want to see how you built it. Thanks!

It looks like we overlooked a configuration variable during the forum migration, but it has since been fixed. Sorry about that!
