Adding a ARRI Dovetail System to Sony FS7. Is it Worth it?

Adding a ARRI Dovetail System to Sony FS7. Is it Worth it?

I’ve been using Quick Release System for some time now. All my have some iteration of the Arcs Swiss camera plates that are compatible wit the Kessler clamp. It works great but…..

I hate the way the camera tips over when it’s put down on a flat surface. The issue is more with the two safety stops on the ends of the plate, and I wont take them off. That’s just way to dangerous. If you don’t clamp it down the camera will slide off and crash to the ground. For the most part I just lived with it. Laying the camera on it’s side or p;eaning it against something. Not ideal.

I decided to get another Wooden Camera cage for my a7s. I had one for a GH4 with YAGH and I liked it. Wooden Camera likes style dovetail plates. They are mostly used on big heavy camera rigs. I see them a lot on . It’s been a standard for many years but hasn’t really been adopted for smaller cameras really. This also makes them a little expensive too.
