Wooden Camera has announced that two new collections of custom kits and accessories for the Fujifilm GFX100S and X-H2S will be showcased at Cine Gear Expo 2022 from June 9-12, 2022.
As Cine Gear Expo LA returns as an in-person event, a crucial venue for reconnecting with colleagues, friends and collaborators in laid-back LA Cine Gear style at the Los Angeles Convention Center, June 9-12, 2022, companies are preparing to show off their new products in live audiences and not via a streaming presentation.
Wooden Camera will be at Booth 565 in West Hall at the Los Angeles Convention Center showcasing its extensive product line and two new collections of custom kits and accessories for the Fujifilm GFX100S and X-H2S cameras.
“Wooden Camera has a proven track record of designing custom cages and accessories for the industry’s top cameras,” said Dominick Aiello, Senior Director of Accessories at Creative Solutions. “Every camera is unique and we approach our product design with that in mind, so we’re thrilled to introduce these custom kits and collections for Fujifilm’s amazing new cameras.”
New Fujifilm adapters
Wooden Camera’s bespoke cages for the Fujifilm GFX100S and X-H2S each features a hot shoe clamp, focal plane marking, removable strain relief and a generous set of 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16 mounting points with recesses for safety pins. The full wraparound design of both cages, a new direction for the wooden camera, provides an added measure of protection and stability over open/universal cages. Both cages feature camera-specific heights to achieve the correct optical center when used with the new 15mm LW baseplate (Fujifilm GFX100S, X-H2S), which comes with ARCA security systems and updated dovetail.
New camera-specific power options include a D-Tap-to-Fujifilm NP-W235 (dummy) battery and a micro-battery slider available in Gold and V-Mount. The Micro Battery Slides feature two D-Taps, an easy-reset digital fuse, and mount via a 15mm LW rod system. Micro Battery Slides are compatible with new standard size micro and cine batteries. The GFX100S cage also features a latch designed to keep the camera’s battery door secure when using a dummy battery.
Wooden Camera will also introduce a new Fujifilm G to PL Mount Adapter and X to PL Mount Adapter – precision machined lens mount adapters to support a wider range of lenses.
Each camera collection offers three levels of professionally curated kits: Basic, Advanced, and Pro. Pro kits include a Gold or V-Mount Micro battery slide.

“We are proud of the new design elements and refinements we have introduced into these collections,” added Aiello. “And we’re extremely grateful to be able to showcase them at Cine Gear, where we can connect with our customers in person and show them the quality first-hand.”

Wooden Camera celebrated its tenth anniversary last year and recently decided to renew its image. The company then said: “As we continue to grow, we felt it was a good time to reflect on where we started and where we want to go. In doing so, we realized it was time for a new logo. We wanted something to inspire us and move forward, while staying true to the heart of Wooden Camera.
