The 16x9 Inc. Cine Base M15 for Sony FS100 is a rod-based support system that mounts onto studio base plates 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 base plate, 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.
This kit contains a cine lens mount allowing you to use a cinema lens on the Sony NEX-FS100 (male E-mount / female PL-mount). Included 15mm Mini Rod Support Bracket enables you to attach the mount to the 15mm support rods.
