Accessories in the collection may be purchased individually or in one of three bundled kit tiers: Base, Advanced, Pro (V-Mount) and Pro (Gold Mount).
Wooden Camera is shipping a complete range of custom kits and accessories for the Panasonic LUMIX BGH1.
Every tier of these production-ready kits features the compact, low-profile, Panasonic BGH1 Camera Cage alongside a new Mini Top Handle (3/8″-16) and LW 15mm Baseplate. Options include three new universal utility pieces that can be used on any rig: a new and improved bolt-on ARRI Rosette (3/8″-16), a compact Tilt Monitor Hinge (3/8″-16) and the Mini Top Handle (3/8″-16).
Dominick Aiello, Senior Director of Accessories at Creative Solutions, said: “The BGH1 is an impressively small and lightweight camera. Our goal was to design an equally compact accessory package that would both protect this powerhouse camera and expand its functionality. Wooden Camera focuses on streamlining your camera rig while diversifying its potential. Our attention to detail, configuration, materials and ergonomics are designed to make our accessories become one with your camera so you can focus on the magic in front of the lens instead of the challenges behind it.”
Accessories in the collection can be purchased individually or in one of three bundled kit tiers: Base, Advanced, Pro (V-Mount) and Pro (Gold Mount). Pro tiers feature a new camera-specific Micro Battery Slide Pro available in two mounting configurations, allowing both micro and full-sized batteries to be added to the camera rig.
The nucleus of each kit is the Panasonic LUMIX BGH1 Camera Cage, featuring a wrap-around design that provides enhanced support and an array of industry-standard 3/8″-16 and 1/4″-20 side-mounting points. Markings along the sides indicate the camera’s focal plane, and an ARCA Swiss Top Plate allows for mounting handles and other accessories.
Also included is the LW 15mm Baseplate, featuring an upgraded safety-release system for the top ARCA Swiss dovetail, industry-standard 3/8″-16 and 1/4″-20 mounting points throughout and two 15mm LW rod openings at the correct distance from the centre of the lens. It also features a dual quick-release system, with the ARCA Swiss dovetail slot on top and the ARRI-standard dovetail slot underneath.
The Advanced Kit adds an 8” Safety Dovetail and a pair of 9” 15mm rods.
The Pro-Kit adds the Micro Battery Slide (Panasonic BGH1) in either V-Mount or Gold Mount, as well as two 12” 15mm rods and a 12” Safety Dovetail.
The Panasonic LUMIX BGH1 accessory collection from Wooden Camera features two battery plates, each with two different mounting options, available in both V-Mount and Gold Mount. The Micro Battery Slide is a durable power plate that attaches directly onto the Panasonic BGH1 Camera Cage. The Micro Battery Slide Pro mounts to a 15mm LW rod system. Both plates feature 2x D-Taps at 5.8 amps for accessory power.
