Turn your Sony A7 Series Body into a cinema camera with CineBack™!

FIVE Sony Cameras ONE CineBack™! The A7 Series CineBack™ is compatible with A7s III, A7 IV, A7R IV, A7R V and A1. Just add the cage mentioned below and you have a cinema camera!

CineBack™ bolts onto the back or your camera cage giving you tons of mounting options, power choices and other features that you can learn about in the video and description below. You can choose to film with a boxy cinema setup or add the XLR Handle Extension Kit for a more documentary style setup.

Note that the A1 and A7R IV all have a fixed tilt screen so the screen will be block by CineBack™. Use Info Display to view the menu on an external monitor.

CineBack™ A7 Series Features

  • V-Mount battery plate for longer run time
  • D-Tap splitter with 4 outputs to power your camera and other accessories
  • XLR top handle compatible (with XLR Handle Extension sold separately here)
  • Power switch to completely cut power so there is no battery drain
  • Screen side mount allowing you to use your camera screen in cine mode, open or closed
  • Works with the Tilta ZV-E1 Fan module to cool your camera (A7 IV only)
  • Top and bottom cheese plates for mounting accessories and other rigging gear
  • Cable management and routing built in.
  • Modular with future module options to come

Required Gear

You only need one thing to get CineBack™ to work with your A7 series camera is the SmallRig 3667B. The SmallRig 2999 also works but isn't compatible with the XLR Top Handle Unit and requires a 3/8" to 1/4" adapter and some shimming washers which are included.

We recommend the SmallRig 3667B cage for reasons mentioned above.

Optional Gear

The XLR Extension Kit coupled with the SmallRig Adapter Plate for Sony FX30/FX3 XLR Handle allows you to use the Sony XLR-H1 XLR Handle Unit with the A7s III and A7 IV.

Another optional item is this Tilta cooling fan that can be mounted inside CineBack™ and can cool the A7 IV (not compatible with other A7 series cameras). 

Optionally you can power the camera from the D-Tap jacks on CineBack™ with either a D-Tap to FZ100 Dummy Battery or a D-Tap to USB-C with Power Delivery into the cameras USB jack. We've used the Alvin's Cable version as well as the Kondor Blue cable without issue and also really dig the Kondor Blue D-Tap to USB adapter.
