The Studio Baseplate with 12" (30.48 cm) Rods for C100/C300/C500 from Zacuto is designed specifically for the Canon EOS C100, C300, and C500 cameras. It is exceptionally flat which helps to keep the center of gravity quite low. This baseplate features a pair of 15 mm rods that are 12" (304.8 mm) 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 15 mm lightweight holes. The side holes take 15 mm female rods that are locked with Allen screws. It also comes with 5/32" Allen Key to drive these screws. This gives you a virtually unlimited amount of mounting options. With these side holes, you have the option of turning the baseplate into a cage configuration.
You can even mount a Zwiss Plate with professional batteries on the side of the baseplate when shooting on a tripod for better balance. When not using a cage configuration, the side holes can be used for an EVF, Zacuto articulating arms, rods and more. The baseplate also has standard 1/4" 20 and 3/8" 16 holes on the bottom for mounting the rig onto a tripod.
The Studio Baseplate attaches to the camera with 3/8" 16 and 1/4" 20 screws*. This baseplate is perfect for a rig like the Stinger or an advanced tripod rig with rods extending at the back for external power.
Note: *The screw hole pattern on the Studio Baseplate is 1/4" 20, 3/8" 16, 3/8" 16, 3/8" 16. To mount the C100/C300/C500 camera, you need to use the 1/4" 20 and the first 3/8" 16 screw holes. The Baseplate includes one 1/4" 20 screw and one 3/8" 16 screw. To mount an Epic or Scarlet camera, you need to use the last two 3/8" 16 screws.
