END OF UPDATE
This is a cage/armor for the Pananonic GH4 Photo / movie camera. Make sure you get good bed adhesion or else the edges might curl up a bit when printed in ABS. I recommend kapton tape + hairspray. Print at about 85% infill for added strength and use supports. Use a vile + sandpaper to clean up the print afterwards and give it an acetone vapor treatment for a pro look!
Add the 3/8th to 1/4th inch screw threads by screwing them in the designated holes. Its a tight fit and might take a while to get them all in, but that's the only way they are firmly secured in the plastic. The 2 thin pads you can glue where the camera sits for anti-slip.
I use this daily for my GH4 and it has been just as good as the metal ones.
-One solid piece for added strength
-All 1/4 inch metal mounting screw holes.
-LCD screen fully rotatable and battery and SD card slot reachable
-Flash is NOT usable when the camera is mounted
-Cable locking for headphones / mic and HDMI cable (it locks the cables, but not the plugs)
-Removable handle with 1/4 inch metal mounting screw holes
-Anti-twist feature when mounting the camera and when mounting tripod plate underneath
-Works with available tripod quick release plates. For example the Manfrotto MN501-PL
-Compatible with Metabones speedbooster
Recommend ABS because of acetone vapor treatment, but can also be printed with PLA or PETG
