In the Box
The Sony A7/A9 Unified Accessory Kit (Advanced) is a camera support package designed for the Sony Alpha series cameras. The A7/A9 accessory package features our Unified DSLR Cage (Small), a form fitting camera cage for secure camera accessory attachment, Unified DSLR 15mm Baseplate, a quick release baseplate that holds two 15mm Rod (12") at the correct lens height, Safety Dovetail (8") which interfaces with the ARRI dovetail slot on the bottom of the Unified Baseplate, and our Ultra Arm Monitor Mount (1/4-20 To 1/4-20, 3"), an articulating arm with multiple mounting points for accessories.
Unified DSLR Cage (Small) is designed for the Sony A7 series and Panasonic GH5 cameras, which utilize a top-mounted XLR audio module for sound recording. The open shoe mount area allows for the XLR adapter to be installed without obstruction. The minimalist design gives you mounting points on the top and side while leaving all of the camera's vital controls on the right grip and left side easily viewable and accessible.
The cage includes a reversible top handle which can be repositioned over the lens area when an XLR adapter is in use. Built into the handle is a cold shoe mount and a 15mm tube clamp for mounting any of our UVF Mount kits used with 3rd party electronic viewfinders. The handle can also fold down when packing your bag and can even be reconfigured onto the left, vertical 15mm rod for a secondary grip!
Cameras with fold-out LCD screens can be positioned easily and an included HDMI cable clamp can be mounted to the vertical rod to secure video cables and prevent port damage.
The bottom portion of the cage includes a Manfrotto quick release dovetail which can attach to a variety of Manfrotto tripod heads. Quick release functionality works the same as existing Manfrotto plates. Simply turn the thumbscrew and depress the release pin to slide the plate backward out of the base.
A built lens adapter support system is integrated into the base which is great for attaching to adapters with a 1/4"-20 on the bottom like our E-Mount To PL Mount Pro (1/4-20 Support Foot), MFT To PL Mount Pro (1/4-20 Support Foot), and also many Metabones products.
If lightweight 15mm support is desired, the cage may be combined with our Unified DSLR 15mm Baseplate to provide pass through rod support (sold separately).
Unified DSLR 15mm Baseplate
A height adjustable baseplate attachment that provides 15mm lightweight rods at the correct lens height for DSLR cameras when combined with Unified DSLR Cage (Small) or Unified DSLR Cage (Medium). The Unified DSLR 15mm Baseplate has a native ARRI dovetail interface for direct mounting to our 2060 Dovetails, Safety Dovetails, or Shoulder Rigs. The included Lower Quick Dovetail portion can be attached to any tripod plate or ARRI standard bridge plate such as Unified Bridgeplate (19mm) or Unified Bridgeplate (15mm Studio) providing studio rods at the correct lens height.
Ultra Arm Monitor Mount (1/4-20 to 1/4-20, 3")
An articulating arm with two sets of 25mm (1 inch) double ball joints which allow a monitor or accessory to be positioned in just about any orientation. Tool-less 1/4-20 knobs on each end with non-slip rubber pads make setup quick and easy. Black center thumbscrews ratchet to allow for easy positioning. The 3" title refers to the center extension length but actual length fully extended measures 240mm (9.4 inches).
Safety Dovetail. ARRI standard dovetail with safety catch on one end to prevent accidental camera removal. Threaded 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 holes for accessory mounting and tripod attachment.
15mm diameter iris rods used for mounting accessories like follow focus, matte box, lens support, servo motors, and more.
