Are side brackets necessary for top handle?

Mon Mar 07, 2016 2:09 am

Hi,

Just wondering if you need to use the side brackets when using the top handle. Would often prefer to leave them off for weight but I wasn't sure if it's bad to put so much pressure on the 4 small screws at the top when using a top handle.

Cheers,

Josh

Hi Josh,

Side brackets are not needed for adding strength to the ALEXA Mini. You can use handles, and also baseplates - such as the standard MAP-2 or the broadcast plate for ALEXA Mini - without the need for side brackets.

The sensor mount of the ALEXA Mini is a one-piece supporting structure carved from titanium, that surfaces on both sides of the camera in the forms of M4 accessory threads.

Please note you can also attach the handle CCH-2 directly to either side of the ALEXA Mini, without the need to attach a baseplate first.

Best regards,
