This ARRI Top Plate is designed specifically for the Sony PMW-F5 or the Sony PMW-F55 camera. Attach the Top Plate to provide multiple mounting points for accessories like handles, matteboxes, viewfinders, and more. The Top Plate includes a cut out at the back to accommodate the camera fan while the front of the plate features screw holes for an optional rod bracket. Like a cheeseplate, the ARRI Top Plate features multiple 3/8"-16 mounting points.

The Top Plate screws directly into your F5/F55 camera body by using existing camera holes provided for this purpose. 

You can use the Top Plate in dedicated low mode for Steadicam shots.

Add an optional handle and side brackets to create a camera cage. Remember to remount your measuring tape stud. There are dual positions for your convenience on the top plate for measuring tape studs.

You can also add an optional 15mm lightweight support rod adapter to the front of the Top Plate. This will optically center the rods in line with the camera so your mattebox is correctly positioned. The rods can then also accommodate motors.

If you wish to use a viewfinder, be sure to purchase a viewfinder plug protection piece which mounts directly onto the plate to help prevent the viewfinder cable from accidental removal or damaged.

To add the Top Plate:

Remove the Sony handle and the measuring tap stud. You can reattach these items, or other third-party products, once the Top Plate is secured. Screw the plate into place into existing camera holes on the top of your Sony F5 or F55 camera.
