ARRI has introduced “Ready to Shoot” camera rig kits for the new Blackmagic Cinema Camera. When Blackmagic unveiled its Cinema Camera at NAB 2012, it was readily apparent that we would need to use some sort of rig to get the most out of the camera.
Now the the Blackmagic Cinema Camera has started shipping (in limited quantities still), ARRI has jumped on the demand for some camera-specific rigs for this little $3000 powerhouse.
From ARRI: “Starting at $1200, all Blackmagic Cinema Camera kits include ARRI’s Mini Base Plate MBP-3 and Camera Cage System, offering a non obstructive solution for the mounting of accessories through industry standard 3/8-16″ and 1/4-20″ interfaces, as well as a Universal Cable Safe System CCS-1, which protects internal electronics against accidental stress when using HDMI, USB or audio cables.”
No word yet on when the new ARRI BMCC camera rigs will start shipping; however, you should be able to find more info soon on ARRI’s website.
