Designed specifically for Canon’s latest Cinema EOS cameras, ARRI has launched several new camera plates aimed at different uses.
The new products add to the multi-component ARRI PCA shooting kits already available for the Cinema EOS cameras, and include a new cine plate for film set environments, an adjustable broadcast plate for documentary-style filming and a handy top-mounted support plate. The idea is that they not only bring the units more into line with established on set / out in the field workflows, but also provide the cameras with a happily amplified durability.
There’s not really enough detail on them to bother putting the next bit over the page, so details are simply below.
Broadcast Plate for Canon C300 / C300 Mk II / C500
Broadcast environments demand quick changes from tripod to shoulder and perfect balance when handheld. The Broadcast Plate for Canon C300 / C300Mk II / C500 is compatible with VCT-style plates such as the ARRI QRP-1; it also offers a wide range of shoulder adjustments without affecting the placement of accessories fitted to the integrated 15 mm LWS rod system, making last-minute balance adjustments straightforward and comfortable.
