Tilta Top Handle Reviews

Solid, Unique Top Handle.

By Jesse

Just got this in the mail today. It's a solid handle. I read reviews about too much play in the adjustable joint, so I was wary of that, however there is a flat head screw behind the knuckle of the adjustable push button - if you crank that screw tightly, it will eliminate the slight rattle in the joint at the cost of the drag friction on its rotations increasing. To me, this is worth it to eliminate any rattle. It's a very unique top handle, perhaps more of style over practicality compared to Zacuto/Wooden/Bright Tangerine top handles, but it's something nice to add to the kit at a fraction of the price of those handles. I bought it because I didn't want to obstruct the screws on my RED Outrigger Handle since I bounce back and forth between sticks, easyrig, and gimbal usage often. The idea of throwing a nato rail on top of the Outrigger Handle just to mount a nato/Arri pin top handle, then needing to remove the handle, said nato rail, and the Outrigger Handle in order to fly it on a gimbal seemed like two needless extra steps. If you have the Outrigger Handle, this is a very underrated option because you can remove your Outrigger Handle in one step so you can be gimbal-ready much, much quicker. Decent enough way to tweak the center balance of your rig by sliding the handle and loosening/tightening the two screws on the side. Two cold shoe mounts, three Arri pin 3/8 mounts, and two 1/4 mounts. Pretty solid option especially now that they've come down below $100 in price. Unique use case scenarios, but I think it should be a top option for those who also have the Outrigger Handle from the Komodo Production Pack for swifter build-ups/breakdowns when bouncing between a variety of setups.

Lacks Versatility with Tilta Half Cage for A7siii

By Matthew

Works well as a top handle. Two reasons for the 3 star rating: First, the flimsy spring on the quick connect only survived a half dozen uses before rendering itself useless. And second, I was hoping this top handle could double as a left side handle for the Tilta half cage on my A7siii, but the width of the connector, and the fitment locations of the half cage, do not work without pressing into, and compromising the integrity of the HDMI port door on the camera. In other words, you can push hard and make it fit, but you likely risk damaging an important feature, and the weather proofing integrity of your camera, in order to do so. That said, I am already in the market for a replacement.

Love this handle system. I film a lot of short films as well as IG and TikTok videos. The vertical and horizontal options allow me to do both efficiently!

A great compact replacement handle if you don't require audio inputs. Rosette's for mounting the FX6 monitor and a 15mm rod for an EVF or a Gratical via the Zacuto handle mount. Plenty of mounting points

easy to use

If your cage model has a Nato Rail to attach to just the handle is required. Adding TITANRA36B ( Nato Rail) would allow you to attach the handle to cages or other mounting points that do not have a rail.
