The Sony FS7 Lightweight Plate from SHAPE is a fixed baseplate that provides 15mm LWS rod support without interfering with the camera's shoulder-mount design. A pair of 8" long 15mm rods is included for attaching optional accessories such as a follow focus and matte box. In addition to rod ports, the Lightweight Plate also features ARRI rosettes on each side for attaching the FS7's right handle and an optional left-sided rosette handle. On the underside of the baseplate is a V-lock delta adapter, allowing the baseplate to be mounted on V-lock quick-release tripod plates, such as the Panasonic SHAM-TM700 or Sony VCT14. The delta adapter is attached to a bottom door, which can be opened up to access 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 camera screws.

I already have a Shape for my C300, I dont want to have to but a whole knew one for my FS7. Does this fit right onto the C300 Shape Shoulder mount?

This system does have 15mm rod support. If you have a shoulder rig that has 15mm rods you should be able to use this with the system.

Does this v-lock attach to a Sony VTC plate?
Asked by: Andrew P.
Hi AndrewThank you for your question! Indeed as Robert says, you can click in the front part in a VCT plate because this FS7 baseplate has the appropriate Delta plate to match the VCT.We hope this helps and we thank you for your interest in our products.The SHAPE team

It looks like there are holes on the bottom which would allow me to attach my Miller Compass 12 camera plate, instead of the supplied V-lock Delta adapter. Is this true?
Asked by: Kenneth H.
Yes, both 3/8 and 1/4 holes... I'm using mine with Manfrotto plate.
