The Zacuto Mini DSLR Baseplate was designed in tandem with and includes the Zacuto Gorilla Plate V2. The Gorilla Plate V2 acts as the quick release to take your camera off the main section of the Mini DSLR Baseplate. It attaches to your camera with a single ¼”-20 screw. It quick releases from the main section of the Mini DSLR Baseplate via the red, quick release ratcheting lever. A sturdy connection is achieved with the quick release plate and base connect via a 15mm port and a locking pin.

The Mini DSLR Baseplate includes a pair of 4.5” female/female 15mm diameter, lightweight spaced rods that slide into the front of the plate and are clamped in place with an Allen screw. Move these rods up and down to accommodate your accessories, such as a matte box via two Allen screws at the front of the unit. These rods are threaded to accept male rod extensions for longer lenses and other accessories.

The Mini DSLR Baseplate has two lightweight, spaced threaded rod ports at the back of the unit. Add any length of male/female rods to support a shoulder pad or Zwiss Plate (cheeseplate) for your batteries and other accessories. A 15mm female rod port (tightened with an Allen) can be found at the left side of the Mini DSLR Baseplate to attach an EVF Standard Mount or Zamerican articulating arm to hold an EVF Pro or other accessory. A 15mm rod port, which tightens with a red quick release ratcheting lever, can also be found on the underside of the unit. You can use this port to attach a handle or to put the full Mini DSLR Baseplate with rails on your Run’n’Gun Gorilla rigs, for instance, Striker, Marauder, or Enforcer.

The Mini DSLR Baseplate has a single 3/8”-16 and two ¼”-20 screw holes underneath to attach to your tripod, monopod, etc.

The Mini DSLR Baseplate is only compatible with standard small body DSLRs; it is not recommended when a battery grip is in place or on tall body cameras because the rods may not be able to get in the proper position for centering a matte box. The standard DSLR Baseplate can be used for those cameras.

          Comments about Zacuto Mini DSLR Baseplate:

          I needed a rig for my BMPCC and first tried an inexpensive piece by Jag35. The lack of height adjustment was too limiting for the lens support, so I decided to pay almost twice as much for the Zacuto version. I'm very pleased with my decision, as the feel of solidity and quality is apparent. There is nothing cheap or questionable about the dependability of this system, and it's sized perfectly for the BMPCC.

          Comments about Zacuto Mini DSLR Baseplate:

          Excellent manufacturing as usual form Zacuto. Works well with my Sony A7 without extra handgrip, but the lens is way to high for a follow focus when the handgrip with two batteries is installed. Gorilla plate v2 attaches to either configuration, and doesn't cover the battery door when attached to just the bottom of the camera.

          Rods are plenty long enough even with the Bower E mount lenses on the A7.

          This stays on my tripod, while I have options to move my camera to either a monopod or Zacuto Enforcer, quickly.

            Bought this for my studio's Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. It's a solid piece of gear as you would expect from Zacuto. It makes attaching needed accessories possible with all sorts of possibilities for rods, etc.
