The Zacuto DSLR Baseplate Z-DSLR-B is designed to fit tall and short camera bodies, including cameras with a battery grip. It's the foundation for a wide range of DSLR video rig configurations, including the Single Action, the Fast Draw, and the Double Barrel. Two threaded black 3.5" 15mm mini-rails for accommodating follow focus and matte boxes are included.
The front has two levels for rods: the top level is for mounting follow focuses, matte boxes, zoom/focus motors and lens support; the bottom level rods are used mostly for lens support and single or double hand grips. Rear rod holes are for rod extensions to support battery power, wireless plates, monitors and other accessories that you may need when using a tripod. Rod holes on the left and right are for mounting a gunstock and the offset shoulder pad and counterweight for hand-held use. You can also mount a top handle, monitor arms and the cage (which would use both sides at the same time).
A quick-release plate allows you to instantly remove your camera for standalone use--the bottom plate mounts to your tripod using included 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 screws. This DSLR baseplate makes it not only possible, but fairly easy, to go from shoulder-mounted to handheld to locked down on legs while shooting video with your DSLR--without breaking a sweat.
