Mounting SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD to BMPCC 4K cage

PostSun Sep 13, 2020 6:12 am

Hi. I'm having trouble finding a mount for my BMPCC 4K that will fit the shape and size of the SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD, other than the smallrig universal mount. I tried a nice metal adjustable mount that I have for my phone, but the SSD is too long or too thin and won't stay in.

How have others mounted theirs to their cage (I'm using the smallrig full cage)?

I use Velcro (hook & loop fastener tape) on my external SSD drive and a small, flat metal plate bolted to my SmallRig cage.

SMALLRIG SSD Mount Bracket SSD Holder for Samsung T5 SSD, SanDisk SSD, SanDisk SSD T5, Compatible with SMALLRIG Cage for BMPCC 4K & 6K Z Cam E2 & Sigma fp - BSH2343 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07X2PHMCF/re ... IFb387NGWE

I have one of these on each of my 2 P4K rigs with the Tilta cage. They work like a charm. I have it mounted on the top-left section of the cage.

I have the Angelbird drives and they have a holder that fits right on any cage as well.
