(August 18, 2015) Designed specifically for Canon’s latest Cinema EOS cameras, ARRI PCA introduces a new cine plate for film set environments, an adjustable broadcast plate for documentary-style filming and a handy top-mounted support plate.
ARRI’s range of Pro Camera Accessories (PCA) makes the benefits of ARRI-designed accessories available to cameras from other manufacturers. It comprises rugged, versatile and user-friendly tools that endow almost any third-party camera with film-style functionality, aligning it to universal industry working practices and giving it the durability to be used efficiently and effectively on professional sets everywhere.
Complementing the multi-component ARRI PCA shooting kits already available for Canon’s Cinema EOS cameras, three new accessories are being introduced that will allow the C300, C300 Mk II and C500 to be used in an even wider variety of professional shooting situations. First deliveries of these new items will commence in September 2015.
