ARRI have announced a full complement of professional-quality accessories from its PCA range, specifically tailored to Sony’s PXW-FS7 camera. These accessories will be available individually, or in several competitively-priced sets, providing unrivalled reliability and compatibility with industry-standard tools.
The ARRI Adapter Plate for Sony PXW-FS7 is compatible with ARRI’s BP-8 and BP-9 bridge plates, as well as VCT-style tripod adapters such as the ARRI Quick Release Plate QRP-1 (when used with the supplied wedge adapter). Incorporating an ergonomic shoulder pad, the adapter plate also boasts sturdy extended rosettes that fit both Sony’s original telescopic handgrip and all rosette-based handgrips and handgrip extensions. There is a built-in 15 mm rod console and an optional 15 mm rear rod console for accessories such as image transmitters, displays and batteries.
The ARRI Lens Adapter Support LAS-1 is a sturdy lens adapter support that fits an extensive range of third-party lens adapters, including EF and PL mount. The LAS-1 also supports special optical adapters such as the Metabones Speedbooster.
The ARRI Top Plate for Sony PXW-FS7 is a low mode plate with numerous 3/8-16” and 1/4-20” threaded accessory interfaces, as well as an optically centered built-in console. Compatible with ALEXA’s CCH-1 handle, ALEXA M’s CCH-2 handle and the original Sony FS7 top handle, the top plate incorporates two solid metal focus hooks positioned at the sensor plane level. Furthermore, the plate is slightly raised above the camera top surface, meaning accessory screws that are longer than the thickness of the plate will not damage the camera.
The ARRI Viewfinder Bracket for Sony PXW-FS7 is a tried and trusted viewfinder bracket, as used on current ARRI cameras. It offers by far the best adjustment range and sturdiness for this type of viewfinder.
ARRI PCA accessories for the Sony PXW-FS7 will be available from February 2015.
