Tilta ES-T27 Overview

The Tilta Cage & Baseplate for the A6000/A6300/A6500 leaves pretty much no stone unturned in providing an optimal user experience for the compatible cameras. The cage alone, aside from providing close-fitting protection and mounting threads on all sides, also offers a rosette adapter for securing a rosette handle, and features a ventilation fan on the bottom that reduces the risk of overheating and allows for longer shooting times.

A coaxial port is provided (right below where the camera's LCD would sit) for powering the ventilation fan off a 12V power source, such as an optional battery's D-Tap output using a coax to D-Tap converter cable, or the Tilta V-Mount Plate Power Supply (model # BT-003-A), both sold separately.

At the top right of the cage is a cold shoe mount for attaching a mic or various other accessories, and two buttons (C1 and C2) that allow you to easily change camera settings. Access to the camera's battery door is provided on the bottom, as is access to all buttons and ports. The cage also has HDMI cable locks on the top and side, and an included HDMI to micro-HDMI cable that secures into these locks to provide a safe way of connecting a monitor to the camera. The full-sized HDMI connector installs into the top cable lock and allows you to plug in your monitor, while the micro-HDMI connector runs around the side of the cage and inserts into the other lock, connecting into the camera. The locks are removable, as are many other components, although the cage is mainly CNC machined from a single piece of aluminum.

The baseplate attaches to the bottom of the cage via an efficient quick release mechanism, and supports 15mm LWS rods (a pair of threaded 11.8" rods are included). The baseplate also features an integrated lens adapter support compatible with EF to E-Mount and PL to E-Mount Metabones adapters (other ones, including the Metabones Speed Boosters, have slightly different shapes that may not fit). The lens support screws into a threaded hole available on the bottom of these adapters, supporting the weight of the adapter/lens combination. The baseplate also offers three 1/4"-20 tripod mount threaded holes on the bottom, and features a dovetail design compatible with dovetail plates, such as the TT-C16 plate from Tilta.

The top handle also attaches on top via a dovetail mechanism and offers a cold shoe, 15mm rod pass-though, and mounting threads. The entire rig provides a starting point for a complete shoulder rig. Simply attach optional handgrips to the rods in front, and a shoulder pad to the rods at the rear.

Will this cage work with the a6400?

Will this cage work with the a6400?
Asked by: Ryan
Since this cage lists the A6000, A6300 and A6500 as compatible we feel it should work with the A6400 as well.

question

ohw i can turn on the cooling fan ? what source power i can use ? which battery ?
Asked by: Lime P.
The fan requires a 12V power and the best way to get it is from a pro-battery distro plate like the BT-003-A. That plate comes with a 12V cable to go from the plate to the cage, as well as an assortment of other cables for powering a wide array of accessories, and mounts to the 15mm rods of the cage.
