Tilta has introduced new Camera Rigs for the Nikon Z9. The various Camera Rigs are designed to enhance the ability to use the Z9 in production environments where added accessories need to be attached or used with the camera.
There are three main Camera Rig Kits available for the Z9. These are:
- Full Camera Cage for Nikon Z9 $89.10 USD
- Camera Cage for Nikon Z9 Basic Kit $134.10 USD
- Camera Cage for Nikon Z9 Pro Kit $377.10 USD
Full Camera Cage for Nikon Z9
All of the kits revolve around the Full Camera Cage. The Full Camera Cage has been designed to give you easy access to all of the controls and inputs/outputs on the camera while providing plenty of mounting points.
The cage features 1/4”-20 threads with and without locating pins, as well as cold shoe receivers, one is located on the side of the cage.
You will also find a NATO rail connection on the left side for mounting our optional Type IV/VI Side Power Handles or Side Focus Handles.
The bottom of the cage connects to your camera body and utilizes two additional points of contact via Security Mounting Attachments, found near the top right and left side of the camera.
The base of the cage features 1/4″-20 threads for attaching your camera to different quick release plates and natively supports the Tiltaing 19mm Studio Baseplate Type I.
The cage provides full access to the battery compartment, features a magnetic screwdriver, and can natively connect to the DJI RS2.
The cage features a mounting point for the optional Dual 15mm Rod Holder Attachment or 15mm Single Rod Holder.
These are both great lightweight options for securing accessories such as a follow focus motor via a single 15mm rod or a matte box via dual rods.
The Full Camera Cage tips the scales at 264.5g / 9.17oz and it is made out of aluminum alloy.
