Wooden Camera has announced a collection of Accessory Plate Systems that add secure mounting points in a variety of sizes and mounting options.

“For years, our community has expressed the need for mounting solutions that allow them to streamline their builds for optimal placement of devices like a [Teradek] Bolt or distance-measuring products,” says Dominick Aiello, divisional senior director of Creative Solutions. “It was interesting to beta-test these plates and realize there was a need for even more accessories than were initially designed.”

The collection includes cheese plates, hook-and-loop plates, rail mounts and a variety of hinges and clamps.

The Accessory Plates are available in 5"x5", 3"x5", 2"x5" and 2"x2". All sizes are offered in either a cheese plate or hook-and-loop format. Each plate has a variety of mounting holes on the front, back and sides for use with any Mini Rail Accessory. The Cheese Plate Accessory Systems have many ⅜"-16 and 1/4"-20 mounting options built right into the plate. Users can mount a Preston MDR, Anton Bauer Battery Plate and other devices with dedicated mounting ports. Bolt-on Accessory Plates in a ¼"-20 mini version and ⅜"-16 small or mini version were also developed for items like small timecode boxes and audio hops.

Available in 100mm, 60mm and 40mm, the Mini Rails act as mounting rails for the accessory plates and can be mounted directly on them vertically or horizontally. Options such as adding a single rail or multiple versions extend the usability of each rail. Each rail incorporates captive, low-profile screws with ball plungers for added security.

The Universal Accessory Hinge and Clamp system is a combination of mounting accessories offering a ⅜"-16 mount with movable pins and a 90-degree tilt for accessory plates using the rail mounts. The Universal Accessory Hinge and Bolt-On Accessory Rail Clamp are offered as standalone products.

The Universal Dual Rod Clamp is a lightweight, 15mm rod mount that includes 4x 3/8"-16 mounts with pinholes built into the middle of the accessory. Paired with a Universal Hinge system, users can quickly add a battery plate using a 2"x5" Cheese Plate, for example, giving the camera system an easily tilt-able option from the top or bottom rails on the build. This rod clamp includes dual tie-down knobs that securely mount accessories without slippage.

The 28mm Offset Bracket uses a ⅜"-16 with mounting pins that give users an additional mounting point that ties directly into the camera or camera cage. With this bracket, users are able to offset accessories without the need for bulky options.
