Wooden Camera is now taking pre-orders for its new Elite Accessory Systems for Sony BURANO. Accessories include a new D-Box and B-Box, a Top Plate, a Base Plate, as well as a new EVF System that maximizes the functionality of the Sony BURANO.
The Elite Accessory Systems for Sony BURANO mirrors the VENICE 2 collection, and you will notice that there are a lot of similar accessories.
Base Plate System
This system includes a low-profile ARCA Base Plate and ARCA Riser Plate and is compatible with any make of bridge plates that uses ARRI Standard height. The Base Plate was designed to keep the center of gravity low and allows users to easily add shoulder pads or other accessories while maintaining optimal stability. The Riser Plate features a wedge-clamp locking system with a thumb-screw for added security and comes with ⅜”-16 mounting points to attach the Bridge Plate.
D-Box & B-Box System
The D-Box provides additional 12V 2-pin, D-tap port, and 3-pin 24V power options and is available in either a Gold Mount or V-Mount. Additionally, the D-Box allows for hot-swap abilities when power is connected to the DC-In and an on-board battery. The B-Box adds two 2-pin 12V, a 3-pin 24V as well as a Remote-In port to your camera setup.
Top Plate System
The Top Plate System features multiple ¼”-20 and ⅜”-16 mounting points. By using the front-facing ⅜”-16 mounting points, users can add the Front Dual Rod Clamp to secure the rods with a Top Plate 15mm Upper Rod Clamp. Additionally, with the ⅜”-16 mounting point, you can also add the EVF System directly to the Top Plate. The 2-plate design ensures that it can be used in tandem with the SONY PWX-FX9 Top Handle by removing the inner insert and securing the handle directly to the camera. The Top Plate also has mounting locations for the stock BURANO carry handle.
The EVF System utilizes the Universal 15mm Rod Clamp and gives users the ability to have a modular way of mounting the EVF. This system includes a new Universal EVF Accessory Rail Swivel Clamp that is fully rotatable and allows the user to determine where they want to place it. Push button safeties help keep the EVF secure in the system while offering a quick-release option in case removal is necessary. An additional mounting option is to use an Accessory Rail with an Accessory Bolt-On Clamp for mounting around the camera when traditional EVF use is not needed.
At least in my opinion, it makes far more sense to mount the included BURANO EVF somewhere else on your camera and then either use a separate EVF or monitor, but that does depend on your individual requirements.
