Sachtler S2154-0001 overview

  • 1Description

The Sachtler Ace Baseplate is a height-adjustable camera baseplate featuring 15mm rod support and 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 tripod mount threads on the bottom. You can attach two 15mm rods, sold separately, to support a follow focus or matte box. One lever secures both rods in place at once. Height is adjustable from 1.9" to 2.8" by simply loosening another lever and lifting the top portion of the baseplate.

A quick release camera plate, anti-twist stop, and spare mounting screws are included with the baseplate. The anti-twist stop attaches on top of the quick release plate using one of the spare mounting screws to prevent your camera from turning, especially useful for DSLRs. It attaches positioned across at any point along the length of the quick release plate. The spare camera screws come recessed within slots on the top side of the baseplate.

    Ace Baseplate is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A futureproof baseplate for all cameras I purchased the Ace Baseplate after discovering my Motionnine GH4 cage didn't come with a quick release on the riser. I did a ton of research and found that for the price (about $ more than the offerings from Tilta/Gini etc...) and free shipping from BH that the Ace Baseplate was worth a shot. I wasn't disappointed. The baseplate is well constructed, with all parts excepting the knobs made of metal. The quick release plate is standard Manfrotto compatible so it fits nicely with my existing equipment. One nice feature is that there is a single knob for tightening the lock on the 15mm rods. On the competitors models, you have to release/tighten 4 knobs. Also the Ace Baseplate features a single knob for raising/lowering the height of the plate/camera mount. The only things I would say be improved on the Ace Baseplate is to make the knobs out of metal and make them ratcheting so you can tighten them even if you can turn them fully. Even for the extra money it is highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique and efficient design, extremely versatile. Bombproof. Height adjustable! It was just what I needed. Incorporating this product into my 15mm rod based camera shoulder rig has now allowed me to utilize multiple cameras of different classes on the same rig without needing to disassemble/ reassemble the whole rig . . . only minor adjustments needed to the positioning of the baseplate, accomplished by tightening only one clamp, and then setting the proper height with another clamp. The height adjustment design is incredibly clever and just feels very solid overall. This product has traveled around the globe with me and has been subjected to a beating. It still works like new. I don't even think I'm using this product in the way it was intended, but it was perfect in the sense that it united much of my gear in its versatility. I am so impressed with the design that in the future if necessary I'd like to invest in other Sachtler products. As it is compatible with Manfrotto quick release plates that I already own, I can leave those attached to my multiple cameras and after deciding what my production needs are for the day I slide my camera of choice on and go. The bottom of the baseplate is also nice because it allows you to mount this guy on almost anything you can think of, but I currently just have another quick release plate on there so I can lock my rig down on my tripod as I often find myself working as a one man band on last minute gigs. In addition the recessed spare screw holders are a huge bonus. Normally a baseplate is not something that makes me really excited or impressed, I just think this product is very appealing and feels as if I am actually getting something back for spending my hard earned cash.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good but pverpriced I think this is made very well but over priced. I bought it anyways haha and works but lingering feeling it was too much. At least I'm left to linger with a continually working item:

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable and Well Engineered There's a lot of baseplates out there. They range from cheap to super expensive. Many are poorly made. Others are of high quality but are only for a specific camera and therefore are worthless if you decide to get a new camera. This one is perfect for anything ranging from a DSLR or heavier professional camcorder. It's durable and well built. Glad I made the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied Customer I'll use this with the Lanparte Double 15mm Rod Clamp with 1/4 Screw, Lanparte Extendable 15mm Aluminum Rod (Pair, 11.8), and F&V Z720 LED Ring Light. The Ace Baseplate is well made and easy to use. Very nice.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Kinda shoddy Build quality ok.... The mounting screw to the baseplate resembles something more for eating lobster vs filmmaking... And when I received it it was scuffed up.
