With its long flat camera platform and V-lock quick-release compatibility, SHAPE's BP8000 V-Lock Quick-Release Baseplate Kit is a versatile rig option for mid-sized cinema cameras with flat bases. The centerpiece of the kit is the V-lock baseplate. Several inches of adjustment is available for achieving balance with large or small lenses. Adjustable 15mm rods in the front and rear allow for different cameras to comply with the 15mm LWS standard for compatibility with follow focuses, lens supports, and more. If you're not carrying the camera on your shoulder, the entire rig can be locked into the included VCT-14 tripod plate. The included articulated handles adjust quickly, with the push of a button. Length adjustment is provided by way of a thumbscrew. Rosettes on either side of the baseplate secure the handles. See below for more details on the items included in this kit.
BP0008 V-Lock Quick Release Baseplate
The SHAPE BP0008 V-Lock Quick Release Baseplate is a long format baseplate for larger cameras like the Alexa, F5, C300, and broadcast cameras. It can be used shoulder mounted, tripod mounted, and attached to V-lock tripod adapters.
The baseplate includes a removable shoulder pad and features rosette adapters for SHAPE and ARRI standard handles. It has 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 tripod mount threads and a V-lock delta adapter for attaching to the Sony VCT-14 or Panasonic SHAN-TM700 tripod adapter. The shoulder pad secures on by touch fasteners. The tripod mount threads are located underneath the shoulder pad. 8" and 4" 15mm rods are included for the front and back.
This baseplate is the same as the SHAPE BP0007 except it is lighter and has a modified rod adapter in front. The reduced weight is the result of a thinner design, and the rod adapter features one ratchet knob instead of two, allowing quicker rod adjustments. For attaching a matte-box and other accessories, the rod adapter can be adjusted vertically if you remove the screw holding it in position. This baseplate also supports optional SHAPE 15mm Studio and 19mm Studio adapters in place of the included one.
The baseplate features three camera mount slots, all supporting 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 screws. The off-center slots allow you to mount your camera offset if you use a 15mm Studio Adapter. 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting threads are peppered behind the three slots for attaching articulating arms and other accessories. Two 1/4"-20 and two 3/8"-16 camera mount screws are included. This baseplate is best used with cameras that use external viewfinders.

Telescopic Handles with ARRI Rosettes (Black & Red)
The black and red Telescopic Handles with ARRI Rosettes from SHAPE are left and right handgrips that can be attached to cameras and camera support hardware that has standard ARRI rosettes. Each arm features three points of articulation, combined with the approximately two inches of arm extension allows you to adjust the arms for your comfort. The arms attach to your camera or support via an ARRI compatible rosette with spring-loaded locking levers, which allow you to lock your arms in place without having a full 360° of rotation.
Shape's unique push-button articulating joint provides additional articulation near the rosette, while a second push-button articulation joint allows you to rotate and precisely position the rubber handgrips. A second spring-loaded locking lever along the arms allows you to extend the arms up to two inches and rotate the handgrips throughout 360°. The arms are indexed for extension and rotation, so you can quickly move between known setups.
The push-button locking joint enables independent rotation throughout 360°.
Spring-loaded locking levers allow you to tighten or loosen the lever even when you do not have space to turn the lever throughout the entire 360° range.
The arms feature two inches of extension and are indexed every 5mm of extension.
The arms can rotate through 360° and feature 30° of index markings.
