Elements Hybrid Bridge Plate - Core (Body) -
The Elements Hybrid Bridge Plate - Core (Body) is the foundation of a modular, professional camera support system that can be fitted with variously sized rod clamps to provide you with the best support rig for your camera and accessories. Simply attach the proper rod clamps (sold separately) to the front and back of the plate and you can support 15mm, 15mm Lightweight, 19mm, or even Panavision rod standards.
Support and Cushioning:
- When using primes or a lightweight zoom, the front clamps can be used to support accessories such as a matte box and follow focus and the rear clamps can be used to support other accessories such as drive mounts or battery mounts
- Panavision support is also part of the modular system. The Panavision support bracket allows use of the Panavision Modular Follow Focus and also provides standard 12V Panavision power outs that face the front of the camera
- When shooting with larger zoom lenses, both clamps can be employed for maximum rod support. Utilizing both sets of clamps on the Hybrid provides better support for a zoom lens than on previous bridge plates
- The Hybrid is compatible with all of the Elements dovetails, as well as any other Arri-standard dovetail. When used with an Arri camera, a shim plate is required
