ARRI Introduces Ready-to-Shoot Kits for Blackmagic Cinema Camera
It expands with line of professional camera accessories
Blackmagic Design said that ARRI, the largest manufacturer and distributor of professional motion picture equipment, has introduced Ready-to-Shoot Kits for Blackmagic Cinema Camera.
Kits from the ARRI Pro Camera Accessories (PCA) line are built for a variety of applications. The equipment is designed to allow DPs to tackle workflows in dynamic shooting environments.
Blackmagic Cinema Camera kits start at $1,200 and include ARRI’s Mini Base Plate MBP-3 and Camera Cage System, offering a nonobstructive solution for the mounting of accessories through 3/8-16” and 1/4-20” interfaces, as well as a Universal Cable Safe System CCS-1, which protects internal electronics against accidental stress when using HDMI, USB or audio cables.
ARRI’s MBP-3 was designed to fit cameras with small form factors, such as Blackmagic Cinema Camera, through dedicated adapter plates. Attaching the cage support system to the MBP-3 provides 3/8-16” and 1/4-20” mounting points for arms and accessories.
The ARRI PCA set for the Blackmagic Cinema Camera comes in several configurations. The basic adds an aluminum left-side Support Arm CSL-1, providing support for handles and accessories, while allowing for the use of handgrip and controls. The professional configuration comes with a Hot Shoe Bracket CHS-1 to prevent camera body flex.
