Arri has released accessories for Sony’s new F5 and F55 cameras.
The Arri base plate makes the cameras compatible with lightweight support standards and includes a built-in “Touch and Go 35” plate to allow the camera to be mounted to a head or a standard quick release plate.
For studio configuration, the base plate accepts studio bridge plates such as Arri’s BP-8 or BP-9.
The Arri top plate for Sony F5 and F55 cameras is designed to offer multiple mounting interfaces for accessories.
An Arri handle can be attached at three different positions.
With multiple centered interfaces, the top plate can also be used as a low mode plate for Steadicam shots.
An optional 15 mm lightweight support rod adapter can be attached to the front of the plate, optically centered to the camera.
The Viewfinder Adapter VFA-1 allows the mounting of Sony viewfinders to all Arri 3/8-16” interfaces.
The shoulder pad mounts to the bottom of Sony F5 and F55 cameras via a hand screw and can be used independently of a base plate.
When used alongside the Arri base plate, the shoulder pad can remain in place when the camera is secured to a head via the base plate’s built-in “Touch and Go” quick release system.
