Tilta has introduced new cage and accessory solutions for the Canon EOS R5C, consisting of a cage as well as integrated battery solutions that also support Canon EOS R5C 8K 50/60p RAW recording via USB-C PD.
As we had reported at our hands-on test of the Canon EOS R5C, the production model of the Canon EOS R5C requires an additional, external power supply via USB-C for 8K 50/60p RAW recording. In addition, we had encountered the Canon EOS R5C&s comparatively low battery power as a challenge in the interview practice here.
Tilta now offers several, in our eyes quite clever solutions for the Canon EOS R5C at the start here, to enable both longer runtimes and corresponding 8K 50/60p RAW recording with the Canon EOS R5C.
The heart of the new Tilta accessories for the Canon EOS R5C is the Full Camera Cage for the Canon EOS R5C, which at least on paper leaves a quite complete impression:
The Titla Camera Cage for the Canon EOS R5C offers various Nato rails, many threads incl. lockpin mounts, anti-twist devices, cable clamps, hot-shoe mounts and much more.
For the additional power supply of the Canon EOS R5C, Tilta basically offers two new options: With the new left-side Run/Stop battery handle, which attaches to the left side of the cage via Nato Rail.
Tilta is talking 150 min of continuous 8K 60p RAW recording time here which is a pretty substantial runtime extension.
The second option is a V-Mount adapter, which also has USB-C PD-Out function as well as D-Tap and normal 5V USB-C Out.
The new V-Mount adapter can be mounted via Arca-Swiss mount directly under the camera or with a rod system behind the camera - which would probably be the optimal choice for shoulder rigs. Pretty clever: For mounting under the camera, the height of the V-Mount manifold can be locked individually, so V-Mount batteries with different heights can be used here.
The price for the Tilta Camera Cage incl. Canon R5C Basic Kit is and includes a top handle, EF mount adapter, HDMI cable clamp and HDMI-Mirco-HDMI adapter in addition to the cage.
The Tiltaing Smart V Mount Battery Baseplate (ARCA) -Black is priced at .10.
