ARRI Tech Talk: ALEXA 35 & Stabilizers – SAM Plates & Power

ARRI has released yet another Tech Talk video that clearly explains what SAM plates and powering requirements are needed when using the ALEXA 35 with a range of different stabilized platforms.

The ARRI Stabilizer Adapter Mount (SAM) plates allow you to make a quick and easy, toolless transition from traditional shooting styles such as tripod-mounted or hand-held into a variety of stabilizers from ARRI and third-party companies. In this tech talk, Sean Dooley demonstrates each of the six new SAM plates in their respective stabilizers and touches on how to power this new 24 V camera within different rigs.

The video is quite long and detailed, so below you can see where to start if you are after information about how to work with a particular stabilizer platform:

00:00 Intro
02:12 Accessories for SAM Plates
04:19 SAM -5 for Movi Pro
07:59 SAM-6 for TRINITY, ARTEMIS 2, SRH-3/360, MAXIMA
12:34 Top Accessories for TRINITY, SRH-3/360
14:22 SAM-7 for Artemis Gen.1, GPI Pro
16:08 SAM-8 for Steadicam
19:28 SAM-9 for Ronin 2

It is great to see ARRI create so many different Tech Talk videos for the ALEXA 35. This makes it easy to find out clear and concise information on a vast array of different topics. I wish more camera companies would do this.
