The Sony F55/F5 Unified Accessory Kit (Pro) from Wooden Camera is a camera support kit designed for the Sony F55 & F5 Cameras and utilizes the Unified Baseplate System. The kit includes the Top Plate, Unified Baseplate, two 15mm Rods (18”), Safety Dovetail (12”), Sony F55/F5 Cable Protector, Sony UHF Mount (No Clamp), NATO Cheese Handle kit (70mm), 15mm Rod Clamp, and Battery Slide.
The top plate is a camera cheese plate for secure accessory attachment, while the unified baseplate is a quick-release camera baseplate for holding the two included 18” long 15mm rods at the correct lens height. The top cheese handle is a bolt-on top handle that attaches to the top plate for secure camera carrying. The UVF Mount holds the Sony DVF-EL100 0.7" OLED and DVF-L350 3.5" LCD Viewfinder.
The Sony F55/F5 Cable Protector provides EVF cable protection, and the 12” long safety dovetail interfaces with the ARRI dovetail slot on the bottom of the unified baseplate. The NATO handle kit (Plus, 70mm) is a quick-release top handle that attaches to the top plate and multiple mounting points for accessories. The 15mm rod clamp and battery slide together attach V-mount (XLR-RA, 4-Pin) and Gold mount (XLR-RA, 4-Pin) battery plates (battery plates not included).
Wooden Camera Top Plate for Sony F55 & F5 Cameras
The Wooden Camera Top Plate is a top cheeseplate for the Sony F55 and F5 Cameras that contours to the shape of the camera body and leaves the vent area open. Hence, the original Sony focus hook can remain attached to the camera. The stopper screw in the front prevents accidental unlocking of the FZ mount. The plate provides rows of 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 holes for attaching handles, UVF Mount v2, rod clamps, and more. Additional screw holes allow attachment of the original Sony F55 handle.
Wooden Camera Unified Baseplate for URSA Mini, F55, F5
The Wooden Camera Unified Baseplate supports 15mm LWS rods at the correct lens height, and offers a vertical 15mm rod port for incorporating the optional Unified Lens Adapter Kit. This Kit allows you to support different lens adapters from Wooden Camera, Metabones, and other brands.
The Baseplate includes the Core Unit, a Lower Quick Dovetail tripod plate on the bottom, and a Dovetail Camera Plate for the Blackmagic URSA Mini and Sony F55/F5. Other Unified Baseplate Dovetail Plates are also supported, allowing for quick swaps with a variety of cameras.
The Baseplate provides two quick release options. You can remove the Dovetail Camera Plate only and leave the Core Unit with your rod pair behind, or you can remove the Core Unit from the Lower Quick Dovetail, in which case you'll have a dovetail on the bottom of the Core Unit that's compatible with any 2060 Dovetail, Safety Dovetail, or Shoulder Rig.
The Dovetail Camera Plate features a long slot along its center that lets you secure it to the camera with multiple screws (included), which can be set up to 2.8" (70mm) apart. It also has a non-slip rubber surface that will prevent the camera from twisting.
The Dovetail Camera Plate has an ARCA Swiss standard dovetail compatible with many third-party products. It also has threaded 1/4"-20 threaded holes on the bottom for attaching to gimbals or other compatible tripod plates. The Lower Quick Dovetail has 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes for attaching to tripod plates or ARRI standard bridgeplates, such as the Wooden Camera Unified Bridgeplates.
The Unified Baseplate can also be upgraded for VCT-14 compatible mounting options. Simply attach it to the optional Unified VCT Wedge Plate, which can then be mounted on the Unified VCT-14 Tripod Plate, also sold separately. The Unified Baseplate is backward compatible with Wooden Camera's original Quick Dovetails (Standard, DSLR, and Large).

Wooden Camera Sony F55/F5 EVF Cable Protector
Install the Wooden Camera Sony F55/F5 Cable Protector to protect your camera's delicate EVF cable from being bumped while it is plugged in. While the metal surround protects the cable, it does not impede the cable release levers, so you can still easily detach the cable when necessary. Included with the cable protector are screws for attaching the protector with or without a top plate installed on your camera.
Wooden Camera NATO Handle Kit (Plus, 70mm Rail)
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.

Wooden Camera UVF Mount for Sony F55/F5 (No Clamp)
The Wooden Camera UVF Mount for Sony F55/F5 replaces the original Sony EVF bracket and accepts the Sony DVF-EL100 0.7" OLED or DVF-L350 3.5" LCD Viewfinder directly. It is similar to the UVF v2 Mount for Sony F55/F5 but doesn't include a 15mm rod clamp. Instead, it is designed to be used with top handles or other on-camera hardware that have a rod clamp built-in. It features a NATO rail kit, UVF v2 sled, and Sony viewfinder adapter that combine to offer tilt, horizontal, and vertical adjustments for positioning your EVF or monitor.
The NATO rail kit consists of a 15mm rod with a 4" NATO rail attached. The rod portion slots into a sideways-oriented rod clamp on your top handle or rig, allowing for tilt and distance adjustment. The included UVF v2 sled slides onto the NATO rail, securing into place using a thumbscrew, and provides attachment points for the Sony viewfinder adapter. The sled can also attach to any NATO-standard rail. A safety pin at the end of the NATO rail prevents the mounting bracket, and your viewfinder, from accidentally sliding off of the rail.

Wooden Camera 15mm Rod Clamp
The Wooden Camera 15mm Rod Clamp attaches to 15mm rods to add 1/4"-20 screw-holes to your camera rig. Among the variety of accessories that can be mounted to these screw-holes is Wooden Camera's QB Battery Back Plate. This plate comes in different versions, each designed to have a different type of battery plate and ultimately battery attached to it. With these attached, the QB Battery Back Plate can be mounted right onto the screw-holes of the Rod Clamp. The ability to attach so is especially useful when you have no way of mounting a battery directly onto your camera and as an alternative are looking for a way to get the battery near the camera (so you can connect the two).
Wooden Camera Battery Slide
The Battery Slide from Wooden Camera is an adjustable mounting system for V-Mount, Gold Mount, QRC Gold Mount, and RED/BLUESHAPE battery plates. Multiple rows of pass-through holes allow the attachment of rod clamps, cheese plates, and other accessories.
In order to adjust the plate's position, the user only needs to apply firm pressure to tilt it into place. Sliding the plate into position is facilitated by an adjustable thumbscrew. Both these movements make the plate ideal for adjusting counterbalance and transitioning from studio to handheld position.
