The Rainbow Handle has an ARCA Swiss dovetail shape that interfaces with any MID49 Top Plate or Upper Cage, and many 3rd party ARCA clamps.

If additional support is needed for heavy camera builds, or if you want to skip the ARCA clamp, (2) 3/8-16 screws are included for attaching the Rainbow Handle directly to cheeseplates with 3/8-16 screws spaced up to 76mm apart, center to center.

1/4-20 and 3/8-16 threaded holes with ARRI locating pins and M4x20mm holes in many places.

Rainbow Handle grips are interchangeable and great for color coding a multi-cam shoot.

The new accessories for the Blackmagic PYXIS 6K included a Baseline 15mm LW ($495 USD), a new top plate, side plates, and an upcoming power distribution unit.

The power distribution unit is on a hinged attachment so you can still get access to the stock battery. It includes 2x 3-pin Fisher (24V) outputs, 2x 2-pin LEMO (12V), and 2x D-taps.
