Protecting your Sony a7-series camera and improving its hand held ergonomics for shooting are just two of the many features of the Tilta ES-T17-A Handheld Camera Cage Rig. The precision-machined, form-fitting cage is made from aluminum alloy, providing a balance between durability and strength as well as numerous threaded 1/4"-20 accessory mounting points.
Once the camera is mounted in the cage, the included HDMI plug protector connects the included micro-HDMI to HDMI cable to the camera's micro-HDMI port and is clamped in place, providing a full-sized HDMI connector. This makes it easier to connect HDMI cables and means you don't have to worry about wearing out or damaging the micro-HDMI port by repeatedly plugging and replugging a micro-HDMI cable into your camera body. The HDMI plug protector clamps the micro-HDMI adapter cable in place and also attaches to the cage itself, acting as a strain relief and providing a platform for the full-sized HDMI connector to attach, so it doesn't just dangle freely.
The cage features an orientable, removable wooden grip for user comfort as well as a removable top handle that features 1/4"-20 accessory mounting points and a cold shoe. The cage also includes a 15mm LWS support rod system, featuring rod clamps, a pair of 300mm threaded rods, and three 1/4"-20 threaded helical coil inserts for attaching the rod support system to a separately available QR/Sliding baseplate, tripod, or other 1/4"-20 mounting equipment.
