I wanted to build something like this a while ago, as allot of the solutions didn’t made sense for the battery placement as they will imbalance the entire camera, like putting it on the side of the cage, on top of the hot shoe or even make a big shoulder rig for it. This setup that I have made is more balanced and enable it go be easy to use when filming handheld and you still get easy access to the bottom of the camera to open the battery door to switch SD cards.
