Tilta has a new cage with a QR baseplate and dedicated accessories such as battery plates for the Sony FX6 full-frame camera.
For most run-and-gun situations a “barebones” FX6 should do the job, when when you have to swap between a tripod and handheld setup, 9 times out of 10 you’re better of with some sort of a cage/rig setup.
And this is where the good folks at Tilta come in. Known for their high-quality and very competitively priced dedicated accessories for plenty of pro and consumer cameras, Tilta are now gearing up to dress up the FX6 with some “armor” and get your camera production-ready.
Get Your Sony FX6 Production Ready
In addition, the Tilta ecosystem of accessories for the Sony FX6 includes a top plate with plenty of threaded holes for mounting accessories.
Furthermore, the Tilta cage makes it possible to shoot vertical content for social media when paired with the adjustable top handle.
The Multi-Functional Top Plate for Sony FX6 forms a snug fit around the FX6’s original top handle. In addition, it also supports the optional optional Top Handle, which can be adjusted for balance and includes a monitor mount for the camera’s LCD Monitor Bracket.
Furthermore, the Top Plate also includes Dual 15mm LWS rod adapters, which allow users to easily mount accessories via 15mm rods above your lens.
The Quick Release Baseplate for Sony FX6 also allows you to attach various accessories via 15mm LWS rods on either the front or back side of the baseplate.
Built-in Dual ARRI Rosettes on the QR Base plate

The Baseplate natively connects to our Tilta Standard Dovetails and can be adapted to Arri Standard via our Tilta Standard to Arri Standard Multi-Functional Baseplate.
One of the best features in my option with this Baseplate is the built-in lens support bracket adapter included on the front side of the plate. This will help you support a heavier lens or or a lens adapter.
