Earlier this year I was visiting a few camera gear factories in Shenzen China. Aside from getting my phone nicked in a cab ride, it was an enlightening experience. One of those factories was the Small Rig factory. If you are following the blog, you know how much we love our A7 cage (and a bunch of other small gadgets from Small Rig). Actually, this is the rig we take on most of our productions.

Getting to see a production factory is quite amazing, while one may expect concrete floors covered with oil and workers with dirty palms, the reality was quite different. Almost lab-like. Aside from the noise. Noise has a very strong presence as tens of CNC machines are chipping away at various aluminum parts turning rectangular blocks into meaningful shapes.

I hope you enjoy this short glimpse at Small Rig’s production, we have quite a bit of other factories we are going to feature in the near future.

You can get Small Rig’s products on Amazon, or directly from their store.
