The 16x9 Inc. Cine Base M15 for Sony FS100 is a rod-based support system that mounts onto studio baseplates and helps balance of your camera-lens-accessory setup on a tripod or other supporting platform. Designed for those into filmmaking, this equipment can be easily adjusted and readjusted with the flick of a quick-release lever. It consists of 20” industry-standard 15mm support rods (a front 12” section and an 8” rear section), a compact 9” dovetail sliding baseplate, and camera support spacer.

Sliding the mounted camera setup on the cine base helps achieve a balance with regard to the former's center of gravity, whereas, rods can support the weight of added heavy accessories. The provided camera support spacer raises the camera's height in order to align the camera-lens with matte boxes.

    Comments about 16x9 Inc. Cine Base M15 for Sony FS100:

    I added an Angenieux 20-120mm zoom to my rig. The lens was too big and heavy (12 lbs) for my previous set-up and added a lot of weight to the front, making it difficult to counterballance without adding MORE weight to the back. It was actually torquing the railes slightly out of position, so the follow focus would sometimes slip off the gears.

    By adding the sliding base plate, I can re-center the rig for correct balance, and because it is so well constructed, I no longer have the torquing issues. I wasn't looking forward to having to go to 19mm rails, and this saved me.

    The only problem I had was with the rails that were included. They do NOT work with other rails (different threading - D'oh!) They also don't fit together well where they screw together. Some of the gear I tried to mount on the rails would get stuck at that joint. Not very good...

    I ended up using the rails from my old rig. They worked fine.
