Providing you with an armor cage, while maintaining all access to all your camera functions, the Tilta ES-T16 Sony a7s Camera Rig from ikan improves your camera′s ergonomics and makes it more useable on a video production set. Featuring a precision-machined anodized aluminum cage and rod system built specifically for use with an optional Sony a7s, this unit consists of the camera cage and rod support system with interchangeable lens mount adapter support screw, integrated 15mm rod clamp, and removable top handle. The cage provides over 100 1/4"-20 accessory mounting points so you can mount available accessories without stressing your camera′s body.
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 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.
Incorporating an integrated wood grip for user comfort, as well as a removable top handle that features 3x 1/4"-20 accessory mounting points, a cold shoe, and can be positioned in one of 4 positions for best grip when shooting. The cage also includes a 15mm LWS support rod system, featuring rod clamps, a pair of 11.8" threaded rods, and 3 x 1/4"-20 threaded helicoil-type inserts for attaching the rod support system to an available QR/sliding baseplate, tripod, or other 1/4"-20 mounting equipment.
The cage attaches to the included 15mm LWS support rods via a quick release system that allows you to remove the camera from the rods for a minimum-sized shooting package or quickly remount the camera to the rods when working with rod-mounted accessories. The design of the system ensures that the lens′ center height to the rods conforms to industry standards for using rod mounted accessories.
