After announcing their new sing-rod Zip Focus system just a week ago, Wooden Camera are heading to Las Vegas for NAB 2018 with a few more new product announcements designed to make your life on set much easier, especially when it comes to being quick, efficient and unencumbered by your rig when changing from a handheld setup to sticks. The two new developments from Wooden Camera are their new Touch & Go quick-release system and their new push-button ARRI rosettes that can bring a new level of versatility to your handheld setup.
The new WC Touch and Go System has been designed as an industry standard, QR system compatible with O’Connor 120mm, Sachtler, and Ronford Baker plates. The Wooden Camera version offers a generous weight reduction compared to other systems due to the recess designs on the receiver and plate.
The Touch & Go system is a really quick way to detach the camera from a tripod, without losing the 15/19mm bars for example and your MB and FF along the way with it. Wooden Camera includes 3/8-16 screws, with which you attach the top plate to the bottom of your camera then simply drop it into the base and the plate will snap into locked mode. Push the lever further to clamp the Quick Release Plate in place. To remove, pull the lever and push down on side release button at the same time.
