Tilta ES-T37-A overview

  • 1Description

The Tilta ES-T37A GH5 Handheld Camera Cage Rig with Wooden Handgrip is a full armored caged with integrated 15mm LWS rods designed to work with the Panasonic camera. The cage itself is capable of protecting other cameras as well, including the GH4. CNC machined from aluminum, the cage and top handle together feature over 80 threaded accessory mounting holes, which allow you to mount accessories without stressing your camera's body. In addition, the cage and top handle feature three cold shoe mounts further expanding the accessories you can mount.

The design of the cage has two small raised areas that hold the camera in place and prevent it from twisting in the cage. Access to all camera functions and battery and media doors is maintained, and the cage includes its own short HDMI cable and cable lock. the top handle attaches to the cage via a NATO rail, and the cage itself slides onto the rod clamp assembly via a NATO rail as well. Spring-loaded locking levers permit you to fully tighten or loosen the lever, even when there isn't enough room to turn the lever a full 360°. The included wooden handgrip attaches to the mounting rosette on the side of the cage, and it incorporates a start/stop switch.

Form-fitting cage incorporates a front plate that prevents the camera from twisting in the cage.
The reversible top handle mounts using cap-head screws, and it can be mounted either with the handle extending back away from the lens, or forward, over the lens. Mounting the handle forward over the lens allows you to mount the optional Panasonic XLR microphone adapter.
Eighty 1/4"-20 and eleven 3/8"-16 threaded accessory mounting holes enable mounting accessories to your camera without stressing your camera's body.
The cage uses a rail system to attach to the tripod adapter with built-in rod clamps.
Spring-loaded locking levers enable you to lock or loosen the cage's functions, even when there isn't enough room to fully rotate the lever.
The tripod adapter with built-in rod clamps allows you to mount 15mm support rods (not included), which enables using industry-standard rod-mounted accessories.
Rounding out the handheld capabilities of the cage is the included wooden handgrip. The wooden grip stays cool on hot locations and doesn't feel as cold to your hand as a metal grip. It has a built-in start/stop switch and can be adjusted on the rosette to your most comfortable position.

    Tilta ES-T37-A reviews

    ES-T37A GH5 Handheld Camera Cage Rig with Wooden Handgrip is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great build quality, but... I was excited to receive this for the GH5. The build quality is amazing, the wooden side grip feels great in hand and makes shooting much easier. One disappointment is in the design with the lack of support for the Metabones adapter. The cage will fit the Metabones when you remove the support base from it, but you're out of luck if you're looking to use it w/ heavier glass that needs the support w/ the rods. I don't know why this was overlooked considering the popularity of the Metabones combo w/ the GH4/GH5. I guess you can't have it all, not a total deal breaker as there are workarounds, but would be perfect if they had worked in support for the adapter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review Update Tilta went above and beyond to listening to their customers with the previous version of this cage not fitting the GH4/GH5 with Metabones adapter lens support. Their representative reached out to me and send me an updated version of the cage and it mounts to the base of the Metabones perfectly. I'm very satisfied with the quality of this cage and has performed well on many shoots so far. I'm even more impressed with Tilta's customer service and their willingness to listen to what people are saying and quickly correct issues, well done!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great rig but handle electronics are glitchy The rig works great. I really love the right side handle. I've mounted the XLR adapter, a dual receiver and a small HD on the rig with no problems. Everything attaches great and the camera is still very easy to operate. There's no problem with accessing the camera controls. I do have an issue though. There is a problem with the remote cable operation. Just picking my rig up by the handle starts the camera recording. Any sudden movement causes it to stop. I cannot operate the camera with the remote start/stop, which is a main reason I purchased this product. I called Tilta and had a nice chat with someone there. We did some troubleshooting over the phone and determined that there is a problem with the electronics in the handle. However, he said he couldn't help me and sugggested that I email the sales department. I did, and included a video of the problem. It's been several days and I haven't heard a word from Tilta. Pretty disappointing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from solid build quality great rig, wooden handle feels great in the hand. The quick release plate that you mount on the camera and then slide into the cage is amazing especially if you are doing photography and video. You can go from being fully rigged up to a bare camera in your hands in no time. I had a problem with the remote wire that goes from the wooden handle to the camera. I was outside my 30 day window with B&H but you get a 1 year manufacturer warranty from tilta. Emailed tilta they asked me to send a picture of my warranty card and defective part, 2 business days later i had a new one in my hand. Tilta had great service and i would buy this product again. would be 5 stars if the cable didnt go bad.
