Wooden Camera Announces Accessories For Sony’s FX6

Wooden Camera announces a full range of accessories compatible with the new Sony FX6, adding to their long line of modular parts for Sony cinema cameras.

A new Sony FX6 Top Plate contours to the shape of the camera body, wraps around the original top handle, and features rows of 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 mounting points, as well as several ARRI Accessory Mounts. The Unified Baseplate features 15mm rod supports and can be attached to standard tripod plates or ARRI standard bridgeplates; this system features a double quick-release that allows operators to either remove the full camera/rod setup from their tripod, or simply detach the camera on it’s own.

Sony FX6 power accessories include the Battery Slide Pro with Gold Mount & V-mount options, which can be attached directly to the back of the camera without the need for rods. Position of the plates can be adjusted with a loosening thumbscrew slide mount. Additional power features include 3x D-Tap ports with a digital fuse that cuts off accessory power when usage exceeds specified amp rating, while camera power is maintained. The Battery Slide Pro allows the user to retain access to the battery compartment which allows the Sony BPU battery to be installed. This gives the user the ability to hot swap between the block and internal batteries.

The E-Mount to PL Mount Pro (Sony FX6) is a shimmable adapter for mounting PL lenses onto the FX6, and includes a support ring that integrates with the new Top Plate (Sony FX6). Shims are provided for adjusting necessary flange depths, should the camera be out of calibration.

Bundled Accessory Kits are offered in Base, Advanced, and Pro versions.

All Sony FX6 accessories are now available for Pre-Order and will ship early February.
