Kit Out Your Canon C200 with these New ARRI Pro Camera Accessories

ARRI, who recently celebrated their 100th birthday, have some new accessories for the latest Canon C200 4K camera. As a brand synonymous with high-end quality and the cinema experience in general, the ARRI badge means a lot, not just in brand recognition and on-set bragging rights, but as a staple of reliability and quality, and of course, you don’t need me to tell you that, the ARRI heritage speaks for itself.

The ARRI Pro Camera Accessories division or ARRI PCA for short, have some new rugged base plates, top plate and monitor plate, which can be configured in the ARRI PCA Pro Cine set for the Canon C200, which has been one of the most interesting camera releases of the year with its compressed 4K Raw codec on board, widely considered a bold and refreshing choice by Canon.

ARRI PCA Pro Cine Set for C200

This set includes:

  • 1 x K2.0015518 – Adapter Plate for Canon C200

The ARRI Adapter Plate for Canon C200 is an intermediate plate in between the C200 camera body and either the Cine Plate for C300 MkII or the Broadcast Plate for C300 MkII. Note: A plate for the Canon C300 MkII is needed (Cine or Broadcast) to use the adapter plate for Canon C200 on the C200 camera (K2.0006864 – listed below).

  • 1 x K2.0015513 – Top Plate for Canon C200

The ARRI Top Plate for Canon C200 is a low-mode support, featuring numerous accessory threads and a built-in console for 15 mm LWS with the possibility to use either the original C200 or the ARRI CCH-2 top handle.

  • 1 x K2.0006140 – Mini Viewfinder Bracket MVB-1
  • 1 x K2.0006864 – Cine Plate C300 Mk II ($490 at B&H)
  • 1 x K2.66252.0 – Support Rods 340 mm (13.4 inch), Ø 15 mm
  • 1 x K2.73002.0 – Center Camera Handle, CCH-2 ($240 at B&H)
  • 1 x K2.0006807 – Shoulder Pad CSP-1
  • 1 x K2.0015520 – Monitor Bracket for Canon C200

The monitor bracket for the Canon C200 LCD replaces the original bracket from Canon. The ARRI PCA monitor bracket is an improved bracket to fit with viewfinder mounting bracket MVB-1.

You can see the Pro Cine Set on a 3D rendering of the C200 alongside the Mini matte box MMB-2 and ARRI handgrips (plus a few other bits):

All in all, ARRI PCA stuff is super rugged and manufactured to a really high standard. I’ve used some of their matte boxes and handgrips in the past when I’ve rented kit out, and even though it was used rented kit, it was very dependable and felt like new.

This stuff is not cheap at all, just the MVB-1 viewfinder bracket above (which is also used for the Alexa MINI) costs over £500 + VAT, and the Pro Cine Set sells for around £2,061 + VAT in the UK. For more detailed pricing on the rest of the bits (which is often not an easy task to find out online, as most of them are not listed) I can only suggest to get in touch with your local authorised ARRI reseller such as B&H in the States.

    Interesting but too high-end.

    Got my c200 a month ago. Love it. Replaced my Ursa 4.6k. no regrets!

    • Ogy Stoilov

      Good to hear. Yes, ARRI PCA stuff is really expensive, I agree, but it lasts a lifetime. It’s a big hit with rental houses due to its reliability, but for owner ops, it’s a bit of a tough sale, although I do know owner ops with ARRI PCA rigs on FS7s and such. Good to hear you went with the C200, I myself am looking at it as a B-cam or A-cam depending on the situation to my C300 II.

    • Eyram Seneadza

      Hi, Just got my c200 as an upgrade from the c100II and so far loving it. How does it compare with the Ursa 4.6k? Also… Only issue I have is I can’t work out how to get hdmi output at 25p? I get a signal at 50p or 60p but nothing lower. Any suggestions?

  • HenryEckstein

    It’s actually NOT QUITE TRUE that you can’t output 4K RAW on
    the C200…In my case, we just open up the C200 Camera and solder
    a DSP/ADC/DAC chipset in-between the signal lines going to the
    recording cards and reformat the signal out to a 40 gigabit Ethernet
    connector. At 4096×2160 pixels at 32 bits per pixel 60 fps, the data
    transfer rate is 2,123,366,400 (2.1 gigabytes or 16.8 gigabits per second)
    so we just drill a hole in the size of the camera and put in a
    fibre connector!

    YES! It TOTALLY VOIDS YOUR WARRANTY …BUT…. at $1500 worth of the FASTEST DSP/ADC/DAC chips you can buy and 6 hours worth of soldering
    and electrical engineering time, I save over $30,000 by not having to buy a
    C700 to get that same functionality!
