Thanks for the link.

 

It seems like they have a sound business idea, and the modularity concept is nice. Unsure about the build and quality of it. It needs to be really good to compete with a tested unit like the BFD.

 

I hope they'll be at IBC.

Seems good, recently I bought follow focus from Camtree, solid gear follow focus. This is really solid and always offers smooth control focus...

A note about Tilta. Had not experienced any of their gear in person until a friend bought their all-in-one system: mattebox, baseplate, rods--oh sorry, the kids are calling them "rails" now--cage etc. for the Blackmagic camera. I thought it looked fairly decent until we swapped out my O'Connor mattebox into the system. We then discovered that my mattebox wasn't sitting at the right height, off by 10mm, so they had fudged the rods-to-lens mount spec in the baseplate and compensated with their mattebox. That spec is writ in stone and has been for many years. I lost a lot of faith in Tilta with that choice (or oversight).

I agree with you. Have you guys checked out Cinegears?

Matt, if you're here to promote a product, you must pay for s sustaining membership. I say this because you are new to the forum, and your only two posts are links to this product. It's forum rules.
