Arri has introduced new modular, lightweight, and extremely robust accessories for the Sony Venice and Venice 2, which are now available for delivery. Building on customer feedback about Arri’s widely adopted original line of Venice accessories, these new components offer further rigging opportunities and more mounting options.
The four new Arri Pro Camera Accessories parts are a base plate, top plate, and two side brackets. Available individually or in four sets (Basic or Pro Cine Set and Basic or Pro Broadcast Set), they can be combined with each other and with existing Arri PCA to equip Venice cameras for any shooting need.
Like all Arri PCA sets for third-party equipment, these new Venice sets offer users the ability to integrate their cameras into established on-set workflows based on Arri standards for bridge plates, dovetail plates, viewfinder extension brackets, matte boxes, and many other filmmaking tools.
Arri accessories for the Sony Venice and Venice 2 considerably improve the ergonomics of the standard base cameras. The large, comfortable shoulder adapter provides more than 100 mm of travel for balancing handheld setups, while the top handle can be quickly slid back and forth to accommodate the balance point of devices such as the Easyrig.
Arri Multi-Hex screw technology is incorporated into all components. The multi-threaded screw design of Arri Multi-Hex means users can fasten and unfasten screws with more than one tool, increasing flexibility and time efficiency on set. Up to four different tools can be used for the Arri Multi-Hex fittings (3 mm, 4 mm, 5 mm and 5/32-inch Allen/hex keys).
The new Arri PCA sets for Venice and Venice 2 allow rental houses to continue using the Arri-standard accessories that have formed the basis of their camera kits for decades. They work immediately and securely with the full range of Arri PCA components, without fuss or adjustments to established on-set practices.
