The Zacuto Zwiss Plate V2 is an accessory mounting plate (cheese plate) that mounts to LWS 15mm rods. Designed to make adding accessories simple, easy and secure it features 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded mounting holes and pre-labeled mounting holes for a variety of available battery plates, on board recorders and wireless systems. There are two mounting holes on each side of the plate that are designed for use with the Zacuto Wireless Plate Pro. The Zwiss Plate V2 is machined from a single piece of aluminum for strength and stability.
The Zwiss Plate V2 incorporates four 15mm rod clamps, two sets of two clamps with 60 mm spacing, one set at each end. This allows you to mount the plate in a vertical position, and still have two 15mm rod clamps available for more accessory mounting options. The rod clamps feature spring-loaded ratcheting levers so they can be tightened or loosened even if they are unable to rotate a full 360°. An available Zacuto MiniMount allows you to mount the plate horizontally on top of the rods, instead of vertically. This allows you to use all four 15mm rod clamps for moutning additional accessories.
- The 15mm rod mounting system allows you to securely attach the Zwiss plate to a 15mm LWS rod system. Once attached you can attach accessories to the plate, and have them mounted close to the camera, avoiding long cable runs and minimizing the risk of snagging a cable. This is well suited for adding an on board battery of your choice to a camera that doesn't have a battery mount.
- The plate is pre-drilled and tapped for a wide variety of accessories. Mounting holes are pre-labeled with what accessory mounts where, and screws are provided for most of those available accessories. The pre-labeling means you don't have to spend precious time trying to figure out which screw holes to use with which accessory, and the included screws ensure a proper fit.
- The Zwiss V2 plate is machined from a single piece of metal, with four 15mm rod clamps incorporated into the design. This makes the clamps extremely strong and they won't shift or become loose. The locking levers are spring loaded ratcheting type, so even if you can't rotate the levers a full 360 degrees, you can fully tighten or loosen each clamp.
