The ARRI Pro LWS Support Set for Sony F5/F55 provides all the basics needed to outfit a lightweight support system for your PMW-F5 or F55. This set includes an adapter plate, pair of 15 mm rods, shoulder pad, top cheese plate, CCH2 carrying handle, VFA-1 viewfinder adapter, and viewfinder plug. Both the top plate and handle include 3/8"-16 threaded mounts, and the top plate has a measuring tape stud lining up with the camera's "film plane."
Any 15mm rod-based accessory or lens support bracket can be mounted to the included rod pair. The Sony F5/F55 adapter plate has a built-in Sachtler quick release plate. To facilitate switching between handheld and tripod shots, the shoulder pad can remain attached while using the camera on a head. For increased viewing comfort, the VFA-1 viewfinder adapter is used to attach the EVF to any ARRI 3/8"-16 mount. The viewfinder plug protects the EVF interface from damage when the EVF is not attached.
ARRI Adapter Plate for Sony F5/F55
The Sony Adapter Plate from ARRI is specifically designed to work with PMW-F5/F55 HD cameras.

This plate will support a pair of lightweight 15mm rods (not included), enabling you to flesh out your camera rig with rod-mounted accessories.
Rosettes on both the right and left sides of the Sony Adapter Plate provide points for attaching a handgrip or other accessory. Anti-twist pins prevent the plate from slipping askew when attached to the bottom of the camera.
