This Wooden Camera NATO Handle Kit, consisting of a quick-release top handle and 2.8" (70mm) NATO rail, offers a variety of mounting points for attaching viewfinders, focus motors, lights, shock mounts, and other accessories.

The handle features a sideways 15mm rod port, 15mm rod opening in front, 19mm rod opening in the rear, shoe mount, and 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting threads all around. The sideways 15mm rod port is ideal for attaching Wooden Camera's UVF Mount or other viewfinder mounts. Two 1/4"-20 socket screws are included for binding rods in the front and rear rod openings.

The NATO rail can be attached to any two 1/4"-20 threads positioned up to 42mm apart, such as on a cage or select cameras. The handle conveniently slides on and off and secures in place by a lever. A rotating knob on top allows the handle to be adjusted sideways or reversed to the rear by a rosette-like mechanism.

NATO Quick Release
The handle features an integrated NATO rail clamp that lets you slide onto any NATO compatible rail, not just the included one.
Rosette Based Rotating Grip
The handle position can be adjusted by loosening the top screw, rotating it into the desired position, and then re-tightening the top screw. This gives you a level of versatility you typically don't find in top handles.
Sideways 15mm Rod Clamp
The side rod opening lets you attach a 15mm rod perpendicular to your camera, great for attaching an optional monitor/EVF support bracket such as Wooden Camera's UVF Mount v2. A thumbscrew secures the rod in place.
Front/Rear Rod Openings
A forward facing 15mm rod opening and 19mm rear rod opening are available for attaching optional single rods, which can be used for mounting accessories such as focus motors. A pair of 1/4"-20 set screws are included to secure the rods in place via the threaded holes along the sides of the grip area.
Integrated Cold Shoe
A cold shoe built into the top of the handle lets you add on-camera lights, microphone shock mounts, or other shoe mount accessories.
Accessory Threads
1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes along the grip area of the handle are provided for attaching additional accessories.
Optional Front Rod Clamp
Two 1/4"-20 thread holes on the front of the handle let you attach an optional 15mm or 19mm rod clamp to the base of the handle.

    NATO Handle Kit (Plus, 70mm Rail) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Handle I bought this handle to go along with my Wooden Pocket Cage, primarily because it has the unique feature of a 15mm rod hole in the handle stand. I needed this so I could easily mount my SmallHD 501 there. In addition, you can add a 15mm rod in the front of the handle, and a 19mm rod in the rear of the handle if you needed to do so (I don't, but it's nice to know it's there). It has a shoe mount too, but more importantly is you can easily adjust where the handle sits as it slides on its own mount, and the handle can easily be turned for whatever purpose you may need that for. It's the most versatile handle I've ever encountered and the build quality is second to none.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from New Handle for my FS700 Had this for about a week and so far so good. My Fs700 top handle was showing a little wear and I thought I'd replace it with this before it broke or snapped off. While I appreciate the swivel, it bothers me that the locking knob is made out of plastic and everything else is metal and DOES NOT line exactly straight (minus a star considering the price). I'm also annoyed that simpler kits aren't available but a little research never hurt anybody. We'll see.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent handle add-on for just about any production camera Excellent product. Mount your safety rail on your camera using the two included bolts and then the handle easily slides on and off as needed. The handle is sturdy and robust, is easily positionable and has mounting holes all over it. 19mm and 15mm rods can be added. I've purchased this handle kit for all three of my production cameras.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Questionable QC for the price Design is helpful and rod mount in an essential add-on. As someone else mentioned, it does not lock perfectly straight. It's off about 1 or 2 deg for some reason because of the rosette alignment. I've also had the top wooden nob and rail lock loosen over the course of a days shoot. Should I check more often? I guess so. I would expect a little better QC from something at this price as compared to cheaper similar products. I'm using this with an FS7 cheese plate, which is excellent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly Well Designed & Top Notch Build Quality I'm working on an intensive personal project this year and decided to build up a sled system for my SONY FS-100. Basis for the sled is a Berkey System with rails and a Berkey top cheese plate. The NATO handle is mounted on a quick release NATO rail on the top cheese plate. A Rycote INV-HQ mkIII shock mount is mounted on top of the NATO handle and holds a Sennheiser MKH-50 mic with a Cinela LEO Ball and fur for wind suppression. I can easily remove the handle with the mic intact and store in my Orca case for transport. The entire rig without a follow focus or matte box tips the scale slightly over 11 pounds, so having a solid handle is every bit of a necessity as much a convenience. The Wooden Camera NATO system is not only well designed and versatile but it has a flawless build quality. I've hand built a custom Harley from the ground up so I know quality machining when I see it. Easily mounted forward or backward position and has so many possible options for mounting and positioning other items on it. Super easy to remove from the NATO quick release rail. Wooden Camera customer service is second to none and I always have had prompt--if not immediate--responses to any questions. A top notch product from a top notch company that deserves your consideration and support. This is a perfect example that you get what you pay for in terms of quality and service.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fit for Ursa Mini Pro with BMD viewfinder The requirements was for an easily detachable handle that also accommodates the BlackMagic Design viewfinder. This fits the bill. Nice touch that the handle can be rotated.
