At Cine Gear 2022, Erik Naso talked to Alister Chapman about Bright Tangerine’s new Sony VENICE/VENICE 2 1/2 Split Riser for 15mm Baseplate at Cine Gear 2022.
The riser comprises of two parts and its purpose is to set the Sony VENICE or VENICE 2 to 15mm LWS standards when combined with B4003.1030 15mm LWS Baseplate for the Sony VENICE and VENICE 2.
The split design allows the cage to quickly detach from the baseplate, creating a low profile design for easier balancing on gimbals & steadicam without complete disassembly.
- Consists of upper & riser plates setting 15mm LWS height standard with the baseplate core
- Forms a rigid cage when combined with side & top plates
- Speeds up setup changes with detachable riser plate, creating a low profile setup for gimbal & steadicam work
- Camera can be adjusted fore/aft on baseplate for optimal balance with locating pins ensuring proper alignment
The upper plate attaches directly to the bottom of the camera and the riser plate mounts to the baseplate core. The camera with the upper plate can then be secured to the baseplate. The fore/aft positioning of the camera can be adjusted for optimal balance before engaging the locating pins to ensure proper alignment.
For gimbal & steadicam work, the camera can be quickly detached from the baseplate providing a low profile form factor, ready to be connected to dovetails and other quick release plates with a stable 75mm wide base By removing the baseplate, it lowers the center of gravity and reduces the overall weight of the build.
The upper plate also provides mounting points for B4004.1021 & B4004.1022 Side Plates. Combined with B4004 1020 Sliding Top Plate, they form a rigid cage around the camera.
