Wooden Camera Introduces Sony FX6 Accessories

Wooden Camera Sony FX6 Accessories

Wooden Camera has announced its new line of accessories for Sony‘s new FX6 camera, continuing its long line of modular parts for Sony cinema cameras.

First up is a new Sony FX6 Top Plate that contours to the shape of the camera body, wraps around the original top handle, and features rows of 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 mounting points, as well as several ARRI Accessory Mounts. The Unified Baseplate features 15mm rod supports and can be attached to standard tripod plates or ARRI standard bridgeplates; this system features a double quick-release that allows operators to either remove the full camera/rod setup from their tripod or simply detach the camera on it’s own.

Some of the power accessories for the Sony FX6 include the Battery Slide Pro with Gold Mount & V-mount options, which can be attached directly to the back of the camera without the need for rods. Position of the plates can be adjusted with a loosening thumbscrew slide mount. Additional power features include 3x D-Tap ports with a digital fuse that cuts off accessory power when usage exceeds specified amp rating, while camera power is maintained. The Battery Slide Pro allows the user to retain access to the battery compartment which allows the Sony BPU battery to be installed. This gives the user the ability to hot swap between the block and internal batteries.

Wooden Camera E-Mount to PL Mount Pro

The Sony FX6-specific E-Mount to PL Mount Pro is a shimmable adapter for mounting PL lenses onto the FX6. The mount includes a support ring that integrates with the Sony FX6 Top Plate with provided shims to adjust necessary flange depths, should the camera be out of calibration.

Wooden Camera is offering a number of Bundled Accessory Kits in three versions: Base, Advanced and Pro. All of the below Sony FX6 accessories and kits can be pre-ordered for shipping in early February:

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
