Tilta ES-T13 Overview

The Tilta ES-T13 Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera Rig 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.

question

I have a contineo cage with the nikon g to bmpcc speedbooster. It doesnt allow the tripod foot of the speedbooster to be mounted. Will i be able to use it with this cage?
Asked by: Michael
Probably not. Weve had trouble mounting the speed boosters on cages before. You would have to physically try it though, as we have never attempted this kind of setup, weve had trouble mounting the speed boosters on cages before.

question

Is the power port on the BMPCC easily accessible with the HDMI bracket in place? Looking at the product shots it seems like it might be partially obstructed.
Asked by: Vytas
I can use the power port no problem with the tilta. It is tight but works

question

Does this allow the Nikon Speed metabone adapter to be attached while the cage is on?
Asked by: Guy S.
It will require that you remove the Metabones adapter before inserting or removing the camera from the cage, but other than that it fits just fine!

question

I wonder if I can use it with my Canon 70D? The current deal price is attractive))
Asked by: Vitaliy K.
Hello. For the sake of collecting all of these answers in one definitive slot: This rig will not work with any other camera besides the BMPCC. Even if it fits in the rig, it won't work well, and will likely cause more grief than you want. I spend a few hours a week measuring and re-measuring these things trying to fit one camera into the rig for another, and it has never been satisfactory. Ever. That being said, check out some of the Elements rigs, designed to be modified and adjustable for a wide array of cameras. You can even buy a kit to make an entire cage from scratch, specifically how you like it, with the only limit being your IMAGINATION.

question

can I use this product with a Canon 7D?
Asked by: Anonymous
No. The body shapes of the 7D and the BMPCC are different, and this is built for the BMPCC shape.
