Berkey System has created a top plate for the Sony FS7 that allows the user to add accessories to their Sony FS7 and continue to use the factory Sony handle and keep all the functions of the handle intact. This plate is very easy to install, remove the factory EVF cable clip, then remove the four screw holding the Sony factory handle in place, leave the factory handle in place, slide the plate in from the front on top of the factory handle, insert the longer screws we provide and fasten both the handle and the plate to the camera body using the provided hex balldriver. Now you have all the functions of the Sony handle plus all kinds mounting options you need for monitors, EVF’s, wireless accessories and more. There are plenty of 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 tapped mounting holes along the perimeter of the plate. The use of these plates will not interfere with the addition of the Sony XDCA-FS7 Extension unit. This plate is hard anodized for added durability.
