ARRI adapters for Sony PXW-FS7

ARRI has announced a full complement of professional-quality accessories for Sony’s PXW-FS7 camera. Available from February these include a Viewfinder Bracket; Lens Adapter Support that fits an extensive range of third-party lens adapters, including EF and PL mounts and a Top Plate.

The latter 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 Sonly FS7 top handle, the top plate incorporates two solid metal focus hooks positioned at the sensor plane level.

In addition there is an Adapter Plate 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. Incorporating a shoulder pad, the adapter plate also boasts extended rosettes that fit 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.
