Arri has released two new accessories for its Alexa Mini camera: a broadcast plate and a low bracket for shoulder operation.
Both were presented as early production models at the BSC Expo in London and the Micro Salon in Paris, where they were “enthusiastically received”, Arri said.
The Broadcast Plate for Alexa Mini (pictured) is an adjustable base plate designed for documentary-style filming.
It features an advanced shoulder pad adjustment, while the broadcast plate allows for “precise” balancing on the shoulder without any need to adjust configurations that include components mounted to accessory rods.
The broadcast plate is compatible with VCT-style tripod adapters such as the Arri Quick Release Plate QRP-1 for swift transition from shoulder to tripod.
The Arri Low Bracket for CSP-1 is designed for the Mini Adapter Plate MAP-2.
Arri said that when fitted to the Camera Shoulder Pad CSP-1 the low bracket makes handheld operating easier by lowering the Alexa Mini on the shoulder by 15mm.
