The Wooden Camera Quick Kit for Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera is an anodized aluminum, quick-release camera cage and rod support system designed specifically for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. The package includes a Camera Cage, Quick Base, NATO Cheese Handle Kit, A-Box XLR Adapter for Pocket Cinema Camera and two 15mm rods.
The Quick Base for Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera is a height adjustable, quick-release baseplate that accepts standard 15mm rods. The baseplate attaches to a tripod plate using 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 holes or can slot in naturally to ARRI standard bridge plates. A quick-release lever allows you to easily remove the camera from the baseplate to go handheld or to change setups.
The Camera Cage adds standard 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes for mounting accessories, while leaving access open to essential camera controls and connections. When in the cage, the camera battery door is unobstructed, allowing for quick battery and SD card changes. The mounting points are 1/4"-20 in standard spacing (9mm center to center) and 3/8"-16 in ARRI standard spacing (50mm center to center). A NATO Cheese Handle for carrying the camera attaches to the top of the Camera Cage through a 70mm NATO Rail. Slide the handle onto the rail and tighten the thumb screw to lock it in place. Loosen the screw and slide off for quick removal. The handle also offers additional 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes along all sides of the rip.
The included A-Box Adapter mounts to one 15mm rod and converts the Pocket Cinema Camera's 3.5mm stereo input into two standard XLR inputs. This allows for easy use with professional microphones and audio recording devices. Phantom power is not provided by the A-Box adapter. Two 15mm rods, 12 inches in length, are also included with the package.
