  • Unobstructed SD Card and Battery Access

The Tilta ES-T13 Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera Rig from ikan is an aluminum cage and rod system built specifically for the Blackmagic Pocket Camera (camera not included). It consists of the camera cage, which is form fitting and allows unobstructed access to the camera's features, connectors, battery, and SD card slot. The cage provides 1/4"-20 accessory mounting points so you can mount available accessories without stressing the camera 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.

The cage features an integrated wood grip for user comfort, as well as a removable top handle that features 1/4"-20 accessory mounting points, 2 x cold shoes, and a wood lined grip for comfort. The cage also includes a 15mm LWS support rod system, featuring rod clamps, a pair of 300mm threaded rods, and 3 x 1/4"-20 threaded helical coil inserts for attaching the rod support system to an available QR/Sliding base Plate, 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 easily remove the camera from the rods for a minimum sized shooting package or quicklly 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.

      Everything fit great!! High quality product that has already protected my camera from a fall. The only thing negative would be that I would have liked the bottom opening for the battery and card to be just a hair wider for a cleaner open. I use external batteries and a Ninja 2 recorder so the bottom opening is not a big issue to me. In my opinion, it looks a lot cooler than many other cages!

      I bought over other less expensive models because of the bracket that holds the hdmi connection in place. Hopefully it will prove worthy investment the first time someone tips the tripod. over all though due to the classy wood side handle there really isnt a lot of real estate to mount excessories off of. The top is pretty much taken up by the top handle, and one side is occupied by the hdmi bracket. over all if you need to actually mount things to the cage look at other cheaper models.

      Super rig for Blackmagic camera

      By Griffith

      from Hollywood

      Comments about ikan Tilta ES-T13 Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera Rig:

      Again, ikan does it best. The Pocket Cinema Camera Rig sets up the camera to hold just about anything you may need to get that shot. Battery replacement is easy, the handle of the rig allows additional gear to be attached, the rails are perfect, everything is nicely machined to fit.

                  I love this cage. First, it was cheap which is good some of the time, and this time it was EXTREMELY good.
                  Just because the price is cheap doesn't mean that the actual product is cheap. It looks fantastic with the camera on it and has all of the mounting options you could ask for.

                  This is a great little rig for the money. Really well built and fits the camera nicely. I really like the look of it and the wood on the handles is a nice touch. Love that they provided a solid way to convert the micro HDMI to a standard connection and it is locked in. The only con is that you have to disconnect from the rails to get the battery out but the quick disconnect works well.

                  This is a great rig from ikan that is very functional. I like how it really protects the camera and adds the ability to really mount anything to it. I use it with my Sennheiser wireless mic receiver mounted to it. The protector for the HDMI is also excellent. Mine came faulty as it had a machine flaw, so my BMPCC would not fit. BH replaced it and this new one is great. I works as advertised and is a fair price.

                        I got this so that I could attach rails & have a proper cage to protect the camera.

                        I thought it was chromed out in the pictures but it came out as a really AWESOME Gunmetal color (reminds me of a lamborghini). It's easy enough to assemble and comes in a nice foam packaging. Adds enough weight to the BMPCC to make Handheld quite a bit easier.

                        The wood is nicely sanded down and smooth. There are plenty of mounts all over the cage for other accessories. The HDMI out cable & lock are very nice.

                        The battery door hits the screws sometimes and the cage itself if the camera is not all the way in the cage.

                          This was well worth the wait. Great C&C machining, easy to use, and very rugged. The attachment that hold the HDMI mini in place is a very good idea as hese become unseated easily. The quick release isn't as "quick" as it could be but perhaps it needs to be broken in.

                            This is an extremely well built and quality rig for the BMPCC. Very sleek design.

                                Everything fit great!! High quality product that has already protected my camera from a fall. The only thing negative would be that I would have liked the bottom opening for the battery and card to be just a hair wider for a cleaner open. I use external batteries and a Ninja 2 recorder so the bottom opening is not a big issue to me. In my opinion, it looks a lot cooler than many other cages!
