The Zacuto Newsman Baseplate Kit (Black) is a shoulder-mount rig designed with quick, rugged ENG shooting in mind. It's easily balanced with a few quick adjustments and gives smaller 1/3” or 1/2” cameras the stability of a larger shoulder-mounted camera--producing smoother shots. The Zoffset allows you to shift the shoulder pad vertically and horizontally, so you can comfortably align your eye in the viewfinder on camera models where they are center mounted.
This Zacuto baseplate kit can be used with any 15mm lightweight accessories, follow focuses & matte boxes--it's universal and quick-releasable. It's designed for use with current and future models of cameras and camcorders such as: Panasonic HVX200a, DVX100a/b, Canon XL-H1, XL2, GL2, XH-A1 Sony XDCAM EX1, EX3, SO-HVR-Z1U, VX2000, PD-150, PD-170, JVC GY-HD100U, JVC GY-HM100U, HD200U, HD250U, Silicon Imaging SI2K, RED ONE, and many more.
