    I was really surprised at how great the quality was. It's simple, compact and can surely take more than just a few bumps.

        Comments about Zacuto Mini DSLR Baseplate:

        This mini DSLR baseplate is very well engineered; light, strong...a convenient solution. I'm able to attach a follow focus as needed or handles, etc. And it allows you to build off the back. I also like that I can attach a 15mm rod or spud off the side for attaching a monitor, recorder...

        And the whole unit attaches to a dock, or you can attach to your plate directly.

        Price aside, it's a great piece of gear.

          Comments about Zacuto Mini DSLR Baseplate:

          I needed a rig for my BMPCC and first tried an inexpensive piece by Jag35. The lack of height adjustment was too limiting for the lens support, so I decided to pay almost twice as much for the Zacuto version. I'm very pleased with my decision, as the feel of solidity and quality is apparent. There is nothing cheap or questionable about the dependability of this system, and it's sized perfectly for the BMPCC.

          Comments about Zacuto Mini DSLR Baseplate:

          Excellent manufacturing as usual form Zacuto. Works well with my Sony A7 without extra handgrip, but the lens is way to high for a follow focus when the handgrip with two batteries is installed. Gorilla plate v2 attaches to either configuration, and doesn't cover the battery door when attached to just the bottom of the camera.

          Rods are plenty long enough even with the Bower E mount lenses on the A7.

          This stays on my tripod, while I have options to move my camera to either a monopod or Zacuto Enforcer, quickly.

            Bought this for my studio's Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. It's a solid piece of gear as you would expect from Zacuto. It makes attaching needed accessories possible with all sorts of possibilities for rods, etc.
