Wooden Camera have been making kick-ass accessories for many pro cameras for some time now, and the new and currently shipping Sony FX9 is no different. Wooden Camera just announced a full range of accessories compatible with the new Sony FX9, that is bound to take the mid-tier camera market by storm, much like its predecessor FS7 did five years ago.
It’s no coincidence that major third party accessory makers are jumping on the FX9 train, it may not be a camera for everyone, but it will dominate low-budget corporate gigs and documentaries for the foreseeable future, so if you have one on pre-order, or are thinking of getting a Sony FX9, you may want to check out these fine accessories for it from the good people at Wooden Camera that will surely make your life a bit easier on set.
Much like they’ve done with other kits for other pro cameras, Wooden Camera have sorted their Sony FX9 Accessory Kits in a Base, Advanced, and Pro kit configurations, all of which include a Wooden Camera Top Plate (Sony FX9) and Unified Baseplate (Sony FX9).
Sony FX9 Base Kit Wooden Camera
The Wooden Camera Top Plate contours to the shape of the camera body, featuring arrays of 1/4-20 holes in standard spacing and the ARRI Accessory Mount in several places. The neat trick that this Top Plate has is that camera operators can still use the original Sony top handle by simply removing the centre section of the top plate.
The Unified Baseplate (Sony FX9) features an ARRI standard dovetail slot and quick releases in two ways, allowing you to either keep the rods or leave them behind.
Power the Sony FX9 with the Battery Slide Pro V-Mount or Gold Mount (Sony FX9), which attaches directly to the top of the camera without the need for rods while maintaining access to internal battery compartment. This allows for hot swapping between internal batteries and the power plate. The Battery Plate position can be changed by loosening thumbscrew and sliding.
