Tilta Shows off New Products, Including TiltaMax Wireless Follow Focus System

Tilta, a popular manufacturer of camera peripherals, showed off a RED Weapon cage featuring an I/O module, side module, MDRs (Motor Driven Rollers), and a variety of power ports. Their TiltaMax Wireless Follow Focus system also showed new perks.

Their cage has designs based on the official RED modules but in a more cohesive package, greatly expanding the capabilities of the camera. The biggest draw, however, is the compatibility with their wireless focus controller, which will soon enable adjusting camera settings besides being a general FIZ (Focus, Iris, Zoom) unit. The TiltaMax Wireless Follow Focus system will also be compatible with their generic MDR, which has a modular transmitter that can be daisy-chained to control up to 6 motors (for FIZ on a 3D rig). The TiltaMax features a touchscreen for setting both soft and hard stops.

After speaking with the ikan Sales department (they handle Tilta's U.S. orders), it seems this is pretty far from shipping. They weren't taking pre-orders; in fact, the product wasn't even in their system, yet. The best guess I was given was late summer, but even that seems ambitious.

Otherwise, I worked with it during NAB and it felt good, not great, but it's quite a deal. A set of 3 Heden motors costs just as much alone.
