      if you're looking to save money go for like Jag35 or something like that. If you're looking to get the most bang out of your buck, go for Red Rock Micro all the way. I started with a simple gear ring and now I am in the process of creating my own custom rig. I am having tons of fun and it all starts with this base plate here which is compatible with any industry products. It has a spring loaded quick release. I must say I am continually impressed by the design and build of red rock products. I have spent over seven hundred dollars on their plastic and carbon fiber and I do not regret spending one penny. I am definitely hooked and plan to go red rock all the way. The best thing about red rock is that you build your own camera setup! It's like an erector set for videographers! The foundation of which is this pricey but necessary base plate.

      This is well built and feels like it will last.

      Small locking pins for Nikon and Canon bodies won't do much if using Gorilla Plate or any sort of Viewfinder mount, which makes camera shift a problem (especially if using in conjunction w/ a follow-focus unit).

        Comments about Redrock Micro DSLR Baseplate:

        Like all of my other Redrock Micro gear, this simply does the job without any fuss. I purchased it to put my DSLR/BMCC onto my RRM rails and shouldermount. It worked without issue.

        It's a bit more expensive than I would have preferred, but I'm glad I got it.

              Comments about Redrock Micro DSLR Baseplate:

              Plate works great w/ the quick release, sturdiness. Couple issues is that I have to check the tightness of the screw into the camera. It comes loose after a while from the way I use it. I basically use a Captain Stubling setup, and often handle rig by the DSLR itself. This puts the weight of the rig on that screw, and loosens over time.

              The other thing is, I'm not sure how to apply the rubber gasket that comes with it. Do you stick the entire thing on? Just the edge part? Just the center?

                Comments about Redrock Micro DSLR Baseplate:

                After having the opportunity to put this guy to initial tests of a 48hr film festival and a few wedding shoots I got to say this part is rock solid. Never once during all manners of picking up my shoulder rig did my DSLR come the slightest bit loose from the thumbscrew. The quick release functions great as well and its great that this baseplate doesn't cover the battery slot making swaps as easy as can be.

                I'll keep using the product and see if there are any problems as time wears on but so far I have no cons to complain about other than the cost.

                But hey, everything in this industry is absurdly expensive anyway.

                  Great when having multiple platforms.

                  I have one platform set up for a 300mm 2.8 IS and one set up for shorter prime focal lenghts and having this quick release is a must to swap back and forth.

                        But this thing is terrible.
                        The baseplate itself is in two pieces. It is impossible to lock it down without it
                        wiggling all over the place.

                        Even worse with the follow focus. As soon as you move the focus ring, the lens moves.

                        Back it goes.

                          I used this to replace the Jag35 baseplate and couldn't be happier. It's pricier than I would have liked, but it's extremely durable and the fact that (along with the DSLR Mini Tripod Platform) I can just pop it off my rig without having to take anything apart is priceless to me.

                                I had a deadline 2 camera shoot coming up - ordered this item - then discovered it wouldn't mount to a tripod without another Red Rock accessory !

                                - what !? - that's what a " Riser " is for !!!

                                This is like screwdriver with a round end ...

                                - do not buy this item.

                                There are many DSLR baseplates, most of which don't address the single biggest problem of mounting your SLR to rods and accessories: the weak single point of contact via the 1/4" tripod hole. Redrock addresses this with a simple set screw that prevents the camera from swiveling and thus keeps the entire rig from loosening and falling off the camera. The hardware is rock solid and compact, and the price is more than reasonable. The one disadvantage is a lack of adjustable height, which may cause issues with accessories (like israeli arms) fitting under lenses, etc.

                                          I can't say anything bad about this product. It's well engineered and works like a charm.

                                          I originally bought it to provide some height to my GH2 because the indian manufactured matte box I have is too big and extended below my rails set up. Unfortunately this baseplate didn't quite give me all the height I needed, but I'm keeping it anyway. I'll figure out something else for the mattebox.

                                          I use this with my Nikon D7000, but it will work with any DSLR and Redrock rig. Quality material and craftsmanship and super easy to connect. Highest recommendation.

                                          It's sturdy and built to last -- well almost.

                                          Fit it to any 15mm rod. Snap on the cylindrical surface with ease.

                                          I would prefer if the design have bigger base for the HDSLR -- less wobbling.

                                          The pin that comes with it helps with holding the body to its base.

                                            I love how quick and easy this baseplate makes taking on and off your camera from the rails. Great design. Solid build quality. I would recommend this.

                                                  This is well built and feels like it will last.

                                                  Small locking pins for Nikon and Canon bodies won't do much if using Gorilla Plate or any sort of Viewfinder mount, which makes camera shift a problem (especially if using in conjunction w/ a follow-focus unit).
