Tilta - Reported Issues with DSMC2 Camera Cages

Issue Summary:

The following issues have been reported with cameras using Tilta DSMC2 Camera Cages:

  • Cameras losing power or rebooting due to suspected misalignment and connection caused by the Tilta Top Plate spanning across the Tilta I/O Module and BRAIN.
  • Cameras losing power or rebooting while using batteries as the main power source.
  • Cameras losing power or rebooting when the power source exceeds 17 volts when connected to block batteries.
  • Tilta Top Plate 3-pin LEMO does not send Run/Stop trigger to the camera while using the ARRI WCU-4 Follow Focus.
  • Some gold pins may oxidize over time on the Tilta Top Plate B1. This oxidation restricts power and communication for the Genlock, Trigger, and Timecode ports on the top plate.
