Zacuto Gorilla Plate

B&H # ZAZGRB Mfr # Z-GRB
No Longer Available
Product Highlights
  • Used w/Z-Finder Pro, V2, Jr.
  • Quick Release for Target Shooter/Striker

The Zacuto Gorilla Plate is a baseplate used with the Striker and Target Shooter rigs and all versions of the Z-Finder. Attaching to the bottom of your DSLR using a standard 1/4"-20 screw, the Gorilla Plate allows quick release from your support rig while also supplying a base for the Z-Finder's mounting frame.

The Gorilla Plate is included with the Striker, Target Shooter, and Z-Finder Pro series. An additional plate must be purchased for use with an additional camera or with the Z-Finder V2 and Z-Finder Jr. (when tall-body or battery-grip mounting frames are required).

Note! The tapped holes on the bottom of the Gorilla plate are offset from the center of the lens. This is only a concern if you are using the Gorilla plate with other rigs that need the matte box in line with the lens/mounting screw hole.

      Zacuto items always seem to be to expensive, but after purchasing the gorilla plate i can see why. It is extremely well built. this plus the mounting frame for the zfinder worked wonders for me it is a quick snap on snap off of the zfinder. It is constructed with aircraft material and is extremely sturdy. It really was great and helped me pull of some nice candid shots real quick.

      Gorilla base plate

      Not satisfied
      The plate sticks out on the side of all tripod and monopod mounts.
      This interfers with the tightening screw on the tripods.
      Your never easily able to lock...Read complete review

      Bought the Target Shooter with the gorilla mount. It's not easy to adjust while attached to the camera.

      Use this on my 60D with the ZFinder frame. Pricey but worth it. Wish it had a few more options for mounting a tripod plate.

        Comments about Zacuto Gorilla Plate:

        Using with a Zacuto viewfinder, you have to have this to use pretty much Zacuto. I kinda don't like that, but their gear is good and this is no exception, well made.

            Very nice mounting plate with lots of adaptability built in. Using with EVF mounting bracket and makes for a nice compact secure unit. The whole point of HDSLR shooting.

                  Use it to mount my camera to my Jag35 DSLR baseplate and rod system and also to mount my Zacuto Z-Finder. Very expensive relative to size, but very well made -- seems indestructible, so maybe not so expensive over time. Simple to use and versatile.

                          This is a great foundation for building a DSLR shoulder rig. You don't have to use expensive Zacuto parts for everything, but not only is this indispensable for using a Z-finder, but it also holds your dslr rock-steady for use with follow focus unit (with the appropriate gorilla plate to rails adapter, which you can find inexpensively through third party manufacturers).
