Third party accessories manufacturer Tilta announces their new Sony FX9 cage.
Tilta has been making excellent camera accessories for different brands of cameras including Sony, Blackmagic Design, Panasonic and other. Their latest cage has been specifically designed for the Sony FX9.
A Snug Fit Around the FX9
The cool thing about this FX9 cage, as with all Tilta cages, is the refined quality. The top plate fits nicely around the Sony PXW-FX9 top handle and includes 15mm lightweight rod adapters. Located on the front end, they allow camera operators and DPs to easily mount the camera’s viewfinder.
V-Mount or Gold-Mount Battery Compatible
The Tilta Sony PXW-FX9 Cage has a battery plate on the back allowing camera operators to mount either Gold mount or V-mount batteries. Thus, they can extend the camera’s operation tremendously.
The Tilta Battery Plate (either in Gold-mount or V-mount) attaches directly to the back of the top plate and hugs the back side of the camera. The battery plate provides several different power outputs to allow you to power accessories.
Ergonomic Shoulder Pad/VCT-14 Compatible
On the bottom of the cage is a Sony VCT-U14 compatible baseplate that allows camera operators to attach various accessories via 15mm rods on either the front or back side of the plate.
The plate also has an ergonomic shoulder pad on the bottom so that you can quickly and easily detach from the VCT-U14 plate and be shoulder mount-ready in no time.
The baseplate plate also features ARRI Standard Rosette connections on the left and right sides to allow you to attach handles. Or Sony’s own PXW-FX9 operating handle for handheld operation. A built-in lens adapter support bracket is also included on the front side of the plate.
Mount Accessories on the Side
A side plate offers even more protection and provides several 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16 mounting points to allow you to mount a variety of accessories.
