IBC 2012: Arri has created a series of ‘ready to shoot’ kits for the just-released Blackmagic Cinema Camera.

Arri’s kits start at US$1,200 (around £750). All include Arri’s Mini Base Plate MBP-3 and Camera Cage System (for mounting 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.

The basic configuration of Arri’s Blackmagic Cinema Camera accessory pack adds an aluminum left side Support Arm CSL-1, providing solid support for handles and accessories, while the top-of-the-range pack comes with a Hot Shoe Bracket CHS-1 to prevent camera body flex.

“The idea behind our Pro Camera Accessories range is to make film-style functionality available to users of all professional cameras,” says Stephan Schenk, General Manager of Arri’s Camera and DI Business Unit. “Both Blackmagic and Arri worked together to create an accessory kit that improves the interface between camera and operator.”

“When we designed the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, it was vital it could work with the best accessories possible to ensure quality, reliability and the ability to work in any production situation or location – Arri’s kits absolutely provide that,” adds Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design.
