The cage is designed to fit around the hot shoe mount with easy access to the battery and side compartments. Among its many features include more than a hundred threaded hole mounts, a cold shoe mount and a 15-mm baseplate with an integrated lens adapter.

  • Lens support is compatible with EF to E-Mount and PL to E-Mount Metabones adapters
  • Compatible with Sony's XLR-K1M and XLR-K2M audio adapter (requires realignment of top-handle or optional mount TT-E06)
  • Quick release system quickly unmounts the cage from the baseplate

High Quality Construction

The ES-T17-A consists of a fully enclosed unibody rig made out of a single piece of CNC machined aluminum.

Sony a7 series compatibility

The camera rig is designed to perfectly fit the entire Sony a7 series of mirrorless digital cameras.

Grip and Record

Start/Stop remote trigger wooden handle handcrafted out of Brazilian rosewood.

Baseplate Support

A 15-mm Light Weight Support (LWS) baseplate with an integrated lens adapter comes with the ES-T17-A. The lens adapter is compatible with EF to E-mount or PL to E-mount Metabones adapters. A second lens support bar is also included.

The quick release rail design allows the ES-T17-A cage to easily connect or detach from the baseplate.

NATO Rail Top Handle

A NATO rail mounted Top Handle is included with the ES-T17-A camera rig. It can be adjusted into four different positions and the top handle also features a cold shoe mount.

Additional Features:

  • Arri Standard Rosette
  • Camera Strap Access
  • Cold Shoe Mount
  • 15 mm Accessory Rod Clamp
  • HDMI Plug Protector

XLR Audio Adapter Compatible

The design of this handheld rig centers around the hot shoe mount. This allows the operator to easily mount Sony's XLR audio adapter (XLR-K1M or XLR-K2M) directly on the top of it.

  • Versatility

    Aside from fitting all versions of the Sony a7 series, the ES-T17 can also be configured to work with the Movi, Ronin, shoulder rigs, drones, etc.
  • Accessible

    The bottom of the camera rig has an open section for the battery port. This makes it easy to remove the battery from the camera without removing the camera from the cage.
