Tilta has announced its Ultimate Camera Cage System for the RED Komodo-X. The camera cage protects the camera in a durable and modular outer shell, which allows users to only use the elements of the cage they need for a specific build.
There are four different versions available, ranging from a full cage up to the Camera Cage for RED KOMODO-X Advanced Kit.
- Full Camera Cage for RED KOMODO-X $134 USD
- Camera Cage for RED KOMODO-X Basic Kit $404 USD
- Camera Cage for RED KOMODO-X Lightweight Kit $224 USD
- Camera Cage for RED KOMODO-X Advanced Kit $746 USD
All of the kits bare based around the Full Camera Cage. It was designed with versatility in mind, and the cage boasts an array of strategic mounting points including NATO Rails, a Cold Shoe Receiver, Arri Rosettes, and 1/4″-20 as well as 3/8″-16 threads with locating points.
These options easily accommodate accessories like NATO based Side Handles, External Monitors, and Top Handles, etc.
Included with the Full Cage, the new Lens Adapter Support employs a sophisticated clamp-based design, providing multiple points of contact for improved stability. This approach not only increases the security of your lens adapters, such as when using the Tilta Canon RF Mount to PL Mount Adapter, but it is also a better solution when using larger lenses.
The one of a kind Foldable Top Handle which allows users to swivel the bulk of the handle out of the way, providing unobstructed access to your camera’s top screen while still being compatible with the DSMC3 RED TOUCH 7.0″ monitor.
