Wooden Camera has just announced a couple of new quick release bridgeplates. The new 15mm Studio and 19mm QR Bridgeplates are compatible with ARRI standard dovetails and allow a quick and easy drop & lock mounting and adjustment of your camera rig.
ARRI style bridgelates are popular in studio setups with cinema cameras as they allow for quick switches between handheld and sticks or other contraptions such as dolly’s, sliders, etc.
The new design allows the bridgeplate to drop down and lock on, anywhere along an ARRI standard dovetail.
In addition, a safety catch adds security to the lever release function. Users can unlock the lever half way to slide on the dovetail or push the release button to allow the lever to move further and release the camera vertically.
ARRI standard height makes it compatible with most camera rigs including those using existing Wooden Camera Unified Baseplates. Rubberized top coating prevents twisting and slotted design accommodates non-standard screw spacings.
Both QR Bridgeplates are priced at $499 USD and are shipping now from Wooden Camera and their authorised dealer network.
