The Wooden Camera ARRI ALEXA Mini Accessory Kit (Advanced) is a professional camera support package that includes the Quick Cage with 15mm Lightweight Baseplate, NATO Handle Kit, Battery Slide, 12" Safety Dovetail Plate, and Dovetail Clamp. It also includes a pair each of 6" and 9" 15mm rods and two 15mm LW Rod Clamps.
The Quick Cage is a form-fitting cage for the ARRI ALEXA Mini. It attaches to the camera with the help of four M4 screws on top and four M4 screws on the bottom, making it extremely secure. The M4 hole pattern found on the camera body is present on the cage top plate. This allows for attachment of ARRI brand handles and accessories. Arrays of 1/4"-20 holes in standard spacing and multiple 3/8"-16 holes are available for large accessories. The included 15mm lightweight baseplate can attach to any tripod plate or ARRI standard bridge plate.
The NATO Handle Kit consists of a quick release top handle and 3.9" NATO rail. It 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 Battery Slide is an adjustable mounting system for V-Mount and Gold Mount battery plates. Applying firm pressure tilts the plate in place. A thumbscrew allows sliding of the plate up and down, as well as adjusting the tilt. This slide is good for adjusting counterbalance and for transitioning from the studio to handheld mode.
The 12" Safety Dovetail Plate offers threaded 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 holes for accessory mounting and tripod attachment. It has a safety catch on one end to prevent accidental camera removal.
The pairs of 6" and 9" 15mm Iris Rods are used for mounting accessories including follow focus systems, matte boxes, lens supports, servo motors, etc. These thick-walled aluminum rods feature a hard anodized finish. The 15mm LW Rod Clamps can attach to existing 15mm rods to provide 1/4"-20 mounting points. They can also be turned over and bolted to cheese plates, cages, battery plates, and more.
