This Top Plate is designed for the Sony VENICE 1 & 2 and provides a sliding, quick–release platform for interchangeable dovetails. The dovetails can slide fore/aft for optimal balance.

Additional dovetails (B4002.1070) can be pre-configured with top handles, gimbal top mounts & more, speeding up setup changes.


The top plate features multiple safety mechanisms for added peace of mind. The dovetails are secured in place using a 4mm hex key, removing any levers which could get knocked while filming. A dead lock screw can also be engaged, fixing the dovetail in place for a completely rigid top plate.

To remove the dovetail, the orange safety must be pressed before the clamp can be opened allowing for the dovetail to be removed. The ARRI standard clamp can also be used for underslung setups using the dovetail or balance plates.


The top plate also features multiple 1/4″-20 and anti-twist 3/8″-16 threads for accessories, with fixing points for the side plates on each side.

The vertical position of the front 15mm LWS rod support can be adjusted to 15mm LWS or low mode for use with EVF mounts & lens motors.
