We were first shown images and details of Tilta’s BMPCC 4K modular and customizable cage solutions way back in October 2018.

We then saw prototypes in November at Interbee 2018. Well finally, some of those solutions are now actually about to start shipping in mass. Tilta began to ship BMPCC 4K cages in February for pre-order clients, but for those who didn’t pre-order it has been a long wait. I’m not sure why it has taken almost 9 months to get these products to market in serious numbers.

Here is what is finally about to become available:

Too late?

The BMPCC 4K was announced way back in April 2018, and even though the camera took forever to start shipping, a lot of BMPCC 4K users have already bought cage solutions for their cameras.

It will be interesting to see if BMPCC 4K owners will be prepared to swap over existing cage solutions they already have for Tilta’s options.
