For the top of the camera, Shape designed a two-part top plate. The plates include ¼-20 and 3/8-16 threaded holes for accessory attachment. Shape also designed a screen mount adapter with a rod clamp so you can adjust the SONY LCD screen closer or farther away, according to your viewing needs. You can place the screen in front, behind, at the left of the right of the camera. The rod clamp can be rotated 90 degrees for other rigging options.
An additional rod clamp with a rod is included with the top plates and can be installed on the other side of the camera to attach other accessories. The distance between the 2 rod clamps is standard 15mm and the rods are positioned for the optical center of the camera.
We created the top plates to provide an easy access to the sensor reference pin. It’s very lightweight (70 g). Another feature of the top plate is that it can be installed on one side only if required as it comes in parts separated parts. The top plate includes 15mm 18 inchs rods.
It’s perfect for drone and gimbal application, and it’s designed with lightweight system for mounting any standard 15 mm accessories.
