Attaching the Movcam FS7 Riser Plate to the bottom of the Sony FS7 camera increases the mounting surface area and keeps it flat. The top surface is specially shaped to fit exactly with the FS7's contours. With the expanded surface area, a shoulder pad or tripod plate can be placed anywhere along the bottom of the camera for optimal balance with different lenses or rig components. The base of the plate is also Arca-Swiss compatible for securing to Arca-Swiss standard support equipment. Aside from camera support, the front of the plate can house a lens/adapter support to reduce stress on the camera's lens mount.
