    Required Gear

    You only need one thing to get CineBack™ to work with your FX3 or FX30. The SmallRig 4183 FX3 Cage OR Tilta Full Cage for FX3 V2. We recommend the SmallRig cage for reasons mentioned in the video above.

    Optionally you can power the camera from the D-Tap jacks on CineBack™ with either a D-Tap to FZ100 Dummy Battery or a D-Tap to USB-C with Power Delivery into the cameras USB jack. We've used the Alvin's Cable version as well as the Kondor Blue cable without issue and also really dig the Kondor Blue D-Tap to USB adapter.
