Acting as both protection for your Sony A7 series camera and as a platform for accessories, the Tilta Handheld Camera Cage Rig for Sony alpha Series is specially designed and CNC machined from aluminum. The cage system 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. It is compatible with any A7 series camera and features a built-in chip control device - can change signal cable to enable control of other cameras. The design of the system ensures that the lens' center height to the rods conforms to industry standards for using rod-mounted accessories. The included EF and PL supports work with available Metabones EF and PL mount adapters (must be purchased separately). The HDMI plug protector connects the micro-HDMI to HDMI cable to the camera's micro-HDMI port and is clamped in place when the camera is Once the camera is mounted in the cage. 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 a 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.

A NATO rail mounted Top Handle is included with the ES-T17 camera rig. It can be adjusted into four different positions and the top handle also features a cold shoe mount. Aside from fitting all versions of the Sony a7 series, the ES-T17 can also be configured to work with the Movi, Ronin, shoulder rigs, drones, etc. The bottom of the camera rig has an open section for the battery port. This makes it easy to remove the battery from the camera without removing the camera from the cage.
