ARRI is expanding its portfolio of Pro Camera Accessories (PCA) with new modular accessories for the Sony Venice and Venice 2 cameras. Based on customer feedback on ARRI's previous accessories for the Venice, these new components offer additional mounting and mounting options.
The new parts are a Base Plate, a Top Plate, and two Side Brackets. They are available individually or in four sets (Basic or Pro-Cine Set and Basic or Pro-Broadcast Set) and can be combined with each other or with existing ARRI accessories to configure Venice cameras for diverse shooting needs. Accessories are based on ARRI standards such as Bridge Plates, Dovetail Plates, Viewfinder Extension Mounts, Matte Boxes, and more, making it easy for users to integrate Venice cameras into established workflows on set.
A key focus during development was to improve ergonomics. The large shoulder adapter provides more than 100 mm of clearance for handheld balancing while filming. The top handle can be quickly moved back and forth to adjust the balance point of equipment such as the Easyrig. The Base Plate features a miniature dovetail receiver that allows users to quickly switch between ARRI's Broadcast Shoulder Adapter BSA-1, Bridge Plate Adapter BPA-5, and Stabilizer Adapter Mount SAM-4 for CSS (camera stabilization systems) devices. Multiple ARRI interfaces (3/8"-16, 1/4"-20 and M4 with 25 mm spacing) allow camera assistants to attach accessories to the camera in a variety of different positions. The Side Brackets now offer additional mounting options and serve as protection for the camera. At the same time, they are far enough away from the camera body to prevent damage from accessory arms and other screws.

ARRI Multi-HEX screw technology is integrated into all components. The multi-threaded camera mounting screws allow users to attach and detach screws with more than one tool, increasing flexibility and efficiency on set. Four different tools can be used for the ARRI Multi-HEX screws (3-mm, 4-mm, 5-mm and 5/32" screwdrivers).
The ARRI accessories for Sony Venice and Venice 2 are available now.
