The new ARRI Dovetail Utility Base or DUB-2 is a connecting plate accessory for cameras such as the ALEXA MINI LF or ALEXA 35, which have been rigged for stabilizers such as Artemis Gen.1 or others allowing camera assistants to quickly mount the take the camera off the gimbal and place it onto a flat surface for prep or a tripod for quick shot. The other new piece of kit from ARRI is the Top Attachment Bracket or simply TAB 1 for the Trinity 2 stabiliser system. It allows cinematographers to use longer and heavier lenses as it provides a second attachment point for extra security, while still making it possible to move the camera at any angle without any vibration or issues.
