The Zacuto Z-CSTGP Stinger Plus Camera Rig for Canon C100/300/500 Cameras is an in-line system suitable for use in long shooting days. It features the Z-CSB Studio Baseplate for Canon C100/300/500 cameras, which attaches to the camera with 3/8”-16 and 1/4"-20 screws. This baseplate features a pair of 15mm rods that are 12” long running through the length of the baseplate. You can quickly reposition the rods for various lens lengths by loosening the 2 levers, one on each side of the baseplate. On each side of the baseplate, there is also a set of 15mm lightweight spaced holes. The side holes take 15mm female rods that are locked via an Allen screw. This provides you with plenty of mounting options. The side holes can be used for an EVF, Zacuto articulating arms, rods, etc. The baseplate has standard 1/4"-20 and 3/8”-16 holes on the bottom for mounting the rig onto a tripod.
The Stinger Plus Rig includes the Z-ZWP Zwiss Plate. The Zwiss Plate allows you attach external recorders and professional batteries such as V-mount style or 3-stud gold mount. This is particularly useful for Canon C500 users. The professional batteries and/or recorder act as a counterbalance to balance your rig. The Stinger Plus also comes with the Z-WPP Wireless Plate Pro attached to the side of the Zwiss plate to hold wireless mic receivers, small recorders, etc. There is room for one extra Wireless Plate Pro (to be purchased separately). When sitting on a tripod, the Zwiss Plate can mount from the rod ports on the side of the baseplate (via 2 short female/female rods, not included) for better balance.
The Zwiss Plate has been tested with the Onboard S and Ki Pro Quad recorders. The Gemini 4:4:4 or any other 1/4"-20 accessory can be attached with an articulating arm (not included) coming from the side of the baseplate, or the accessory can be attached to a rod an empty rod port on the Zwiss Plate.
This rig can be used on your left or right shoulder. With the shoulder pad and Zwiss Plate coming directly off of the back of the baseplate, the rig is accurately in line and ready to be used with one of Zacuto’s electronic viewfinders for traditional ENG style shooting. This rig is compatible with any 15mm accessory.
