ARRI TO RELEASE A FULL SET OF ACCESSORIES FOR THE SONY FS7

Arri has just announced a full set of new PCA (Pro Camera Accessories) gear to be released early 2015, that’s been specifically tailored to Sony’s 4K Super35 XDCAM – the PXW-FS7.

Just to refresh your memory, the FS7 is a native E-mount camcorder, with an 11.6 million-pixel Super35 Exmor CMOS sensor, XAVC Intra/Long GOP recording, FS-RAW interface, with an 18 mm flange-back distance enabling the use of 35mm lenses.

The Arri Adapter Plate for Sony’s 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. For the adapters where its support is closer to the camera mount e.g., the Metabones Speed Booster, just add a small bracket to reach the support on the lens adapter.

The Arri Top Plate for Sony’s FS7 is a low mode plate with numerous 3/8-16” and 1/4-20” threaded accessory interfaces, as well as an optically centred built-in console. Compatible with Alexa’s CCH-1 handle, Alexa M’s CCH-2 handle and the original 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 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.

A 360° rotation of the Sony FS7 handgrip is possible when using with the ARRI PCA adapter plate for the FS7.
