The SUN-Pro+ Cage

Although optically and functionally the SUN-Pro+ Cage is the same, there are minor differences in the dimensions fitting the more compact GoPro® HERO3+ as a glove.

These dimensional differences result in a weight decrease by a few grams.

  • SUNWAYFOTO-specialized Satin Anodized Surface Finish for better abrasion and corrosion resistant
  • 29 mounting sockets allow the mounting of accessories needed during the shooting

Besides the lightly smaller size of the SUN-Pro+ Cage, minor design differences exist in the front plate cut-out which allows for the larger GoPro® HERO3+ knobs.

Otherwise the skeletal design and camera mounting mechanism remain intact.

Same goes for the mounting options of the SUN-Pro+ Cage. Three Arca style dovetails and 29 x 1/4"-20 threaded sockets all around.

Like all Sunwayfoto products, the SUN-Pro cages are precisely CNC machined from one-piece of Aircraft grade aluminium block, featuring the latest Sunwayfoto finish, which translates into a more robust satin hard-coat anodizing with improved abrasion and corrosion resistance.
