Comfortably use the Sony PXW-FS7 on your shoulder with this Vocas Baseplate. Designed specifically to the dimensions of the FS7, this baseplate features an adjustable, rubber shoulder pad which offers increased comfort, and 15mm LWS (lightweight standard) rod clamps for the included 15mm rods. Two pairs of rods are included: a 7.5" pair and an 8.5" pair that you can swap in to balance out longer lenses or heavier setups.

Build Up a Rig
This baseplate can be used alone or as the starting point for a larger rig. Follow focuses, matte boxes, lens supports, and handgrips can be secured to the 15mm LWS rods in the front. Batteries, recorders, and other accessories can be mounted on rear 15mm rods using a separately available rod clamping block. Since the shoulder mount remains centered on larger setups, proper balance will be maintained for comfort during extended shooting periods.
VCT Compatibility
The bottom of the shoulder pad doubles as a quick-release plate compatible with the Sony VCT-14 standard. Using a separately available VCT tripod adapter, you can quickly mount the FS7 with the baseplate directly to a tripod, or build a studio rig using a 19mm studio bridgeplate.

Baseplate for Sony PXW-FS7 is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ligthest Baseplate for FS7 I've tested VCT base plates from Zacuto, Wooden Camera, and Tilta - Vocas' has the lightest plate that weight about 600 grams. It fits the FS7 body perfectly with no extra bulkinesses like other plates. Build quality is excellent. Yet - the plate has very little adjustment capability. You can shift the built in shoulder pad about 2 inches back/front. Even in the most forward position the camera will not be balanced without the FS7 extension pack and a V-lock battery on the camera. I regularly shoot with that extension pack on and I really love this base plate. Every other plate on the market that is adjustable is heavier - including the new Pro version of Zacuto's universal baseplate (900g). So - not the best for front heavy PL/Cine glass rigs. But great for a ENG style rig using DSLR lenses.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't adjust camera position enough Nice built quality and fits perfectly to the FS7, but I have a big problem with with the fact that the camera position can only be adjusted about an inch. When using heavy PL the camera get's front heavy and as the camera position is not very adjustable you have to load up on counterweights which isn't a great solution.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does not leave enough space for the pl adapter does not leave ample room to screw in a support for a pl adapter
