Hand Held Splashbag
Two different “Hand Held” splashbags are available;
"Mini HH" specific to the ARRI Mini
The "Uni HH” that will fit a wider variety of cameras
The Hand Held bags require the camera to be mounted with a plate that holds the ARRI standard 15mm LWS (Light Weight Support) iris rods. There are many 3rd party manufactures that make bottom plates for this purpose.
Wooden Camera Universal
ARRI MAP-2 for Mini
Wooden Camera for Sony
Tilta for Red Komodo
The front face & matte box slide toward the camera by sliding the iris rods under the camera to adjust for different length lenses. The material of the bag “accordions” to change the length of the bag.
WHY THE HAND HELD?
Smallest and lightest bag.
Fits on shoulder more like hand held rig out of a bag.
Viewfinder is closer to eye level without tilting head up for shoulder work.
MUCH easier to shoot on the run holding from top handle with an external on board monitor.
WHY NOT THE HAND HELD?
Takes a little more time to install the camera in the bag.
Requires bottom plate that accessorizes for ARRI style 15mm LWS (Light Weight Support) Iris Rods.
Lens changes & motor placement are a little more awkward.
SAME FOR BOTH BAGS
Optional Spray Detector System clears drops from front glass and can bring air into the bag to prevent condensation.
Cable sleeve allows for video/power/ethernet cable to run into bag.
Pocket in top of the bags allow for carrying the camera by its top handle.
Both can have RBQ plates or other mounting accessories mounted on the bottom into standard 3/8-16 threaded holes.
Both can mount lters filters inside - Studio takes 6x6, Hand Held takes 4x5
