The Tilta Handheld Camera Cage Rig for Sony a7 Series is an impressive and versatile camera rig for the professional shooter. It is the only form fitted cage compatible with all six versions of the Sony a7 full frame mirrorless camera. The cage is designed to fit around the hot shoe mount with easy access to the battery and side compartments. Among its many features include more than a hundred threaded hole mounts, a cold shoe mount and a 15-mm baseplate with an integrated lens adapter. The precision-machined, form-fitting cage is made from aluminum alloy, providing a balance between durability and strength. It features new design for the A7 series of cameras based on original A7s cage, quick release baseplate and top handle make for fast and efficient setup time. Rosette mounted side handle adds extra support for a comfortable grip. Remarkably lightweight yet tough enough to withstand even the harshest shooting conditions.

The ES-T17 consists of a fully enclosed unibody rig made out of a single piece of CNC machined aluminum. The camera rig is designed to perfectly fit the entire Sony a7 series of mirrorless digital cameras. A 15 mm Light Weight Support (LWS) baseplate with an integrated lens adapter comes with the ES-T17. The lens adapter is compatible with EF to E-mount or PL to E-mount Metabones adapters. A second lens support bar is also included. The quick release rail design allows the ES-T17 cage to easily connect or detach from the baseplate. 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. The 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 unplugging 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 design of this handheld rig centers around the hot shoe mount. This allows the operator to easily mount Sony's XLR audio adapter (XLR-K1M or XLR-K2M) directly on the top of it. 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. It also has an Arri rosette for an optional handgrip and 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 12" threaded rods, and three 1/4"-20 threaded helical coil inserts for attaching the rod support system. The cage attaches to the included 15mm LWS support rods via a quick release system that allows you to easily remove the cage from the rods.
