Along with their vast array of camera support gear, the ikan NAB booth also played host to Tilta, who products are distributed exclusively by ikan in the US. Of particular interest was Tilta’s wireless follow focus, the TiltaMax. So we stopped to speak with ikan’s Dariel Resendez about this newly announced product.
The TiltaMax is a 3 to 6 channel system (3 for a single lens, 6 for two lenses) that allows you to control the focus, zoom and iris of your lens or lenses. The unit itself has an LED touchscreen with adjustable brightness for optimal viewing no matter the time of day, as well as an LED lit marking disc. The TiltaMax comes with preset options for a variety of different lenses, but you can also save your own presets for customizable ease of use. It also has a handy feature that causes the TiltaMax to vibrate when you get to the end of your focal length.
The TiltaMax will be priced at $5,500 and will include the TiltaMax controller, receiver, three motors and a hard case. It should be available in about three weeks.
