    Hello,

    Is there an universal top handle that works for the bmpocket 4K but also for the ursa mini pro?

    Thanks!

    There are mainly two kinds of handles; ones that screw into threads (i.e. built into the camera or cages) and ones that tighten onto shoes.

    So you'd either put a cage on the pocket (or use the one thread it has), or use a shoe --> 1/4-20 adapter on top of the UMP.

    One of my favorite handles from the past half decade is the one below, which I bought for the BMCC. The adjustable and sliding screws pretty much work for any camera I've ever used (and are perfect for the top of the UMP).

    To extend that: Nato Rails. There should be something available, e.g. https://www.smallrig.com/supports/nato-rails.html

    Nato rail works really well, tight grip haven't had an issue.
