Tilta introduces a new Sony FX9 cage today. The cage’s top plate fits snugly around the Sony PXW-FX9 top handle and includes 15mm LWS rod adapters on the front end to allow you to easily mount the camera’s viewfinder.
The Tilta Battery Plate for Sony PXW-FX9 Cage is available in either gold mount or V-mount and attaches directly to the back of the top plate and hugs the backside of the camera. The battery plate provides several different power outputs to allow you to power accessories.
On the bottom of the cage is a Sony VCT-U14 compatible baseplate that allows you to attach various accessories via 15mm LWS rods on either the front or backside of the plate. The plate also has an ergonomic shoulder pad on the bottom so that you can quickly and easily detach from the VCT-U14 plate and be shoulder mount-ready in no time.
The plate also has Arri Standard Rosette connections on the left and right sides to allow you to attach handles (or Sony’s own PXW-FX9 operating handle) for handheld operation. A built-in lens adapter support bracket is also included on the front side of the plate.
A side plate offers even more protection and — along with the top plate — provides several 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16 mounting points to allow you to mount a variety of accessories.
The cage is very competitively priced at $999 US and is available in V-Mount and Gold Mount options.
