  • I think it is superb stuff, as you have all remote controls on handle (focus, etc).

    Retail will be around $699 for rig and $359 for cage. For rig it is very affordable as it is Tilta level quality stuff.

  • Lucas Pfaff has some great videos where he reviews the different components.

  • @shoe_e

    You can also let me know that you want to see in PV review.

    We hope to make it more practical and also use it on upcoming exhibitions.

  • Maybe a full GH4 Setup? With everyone going out and getting the GH5, I'm sure people are clamoring for GH5 gear reviews, but I have no plans to get one for at least a year. I am, however, seriously considering this JTZ setup as my go to rig, assuming it is fully compatible with the GH4.

  • @shoe_e

    We'll have review pretty soon.

    It must be compatible.

  • Small addition - you can use cage with XLR addon see

  • This is an incredible rig! How does the remote control focus? I thought only zoom and start-stop capability are available through the LANC port. Does it connect through USB?

  • @Tron

    We did not get cables and handle yet. Wait a little, we'll have detailed second video on it all.

  • The end of that first video seems to indicate there's still no focus support on GH cameras, hopefully a workaround can be devised in the future short of a mechanical servo. Will wait for the updates... I don't have a GH5 yet anyway :)

    Read comment on youtube page. As I understand manufacturer all must work.

  • GH5 Full Rig Shots. We have added the shoulder rig and handles.image
