  • 1Description

The SHAPE Baseplate comes with rubber pads at the top so the Sony PXW-FS5 or PXW-FS5M2 camera doesn't sit directly on the aluminum. The baseplate fits 15mm standard rods, which are secured with a red ratchet knob screw. A pair of 10" 15mm rods is included. The baseplate is ideal for drone and gimbal applications, and is designed with a lightweight system for mounting standard 15mm accessories.

1/4"-20 treaded holes for side mounting
3/8"-16 and 1/4"-20 captive screws to secure the camera position
Four 1/4"-20 and two 3/8"-16 threaded holes under the baseplate for tripod mounting
Rods are positioned to reach optical center
Rubber pads on top of the baseplate cushion the camera base
Lightweight and solid

    SHAPE FS5 reviews

    Baseplate for Sony FS5 and FS5M2 Cameras is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Standard I bought this base plate for it's simplicity and low profile. I dislike rails mounts that raise the camera significantly and this keeps it slimmed down. I did like that it came with metal rods which I wasn't expecting. I gave it three stars because it's lack of other mounting options and that you need a flat head screw driver to attach it to the camera. The screws to attach it to the camera are deep down so you can't reach them with a coin or any other convenient flat thing you would have lying around. Just requires more stuff to have. Although for the cheap price and to just get some rails on your rig to attach a matte box, follow focus, etc. this does the job.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great companion accessory for the Sony FS5 While the FS5 is a great camera its weak point is the lens mount. Particularly when using either cinema style lenses or larger E mount lenses, this unit is a must. Without it you run the risk of having the weight of the lens cracking the mount off the camera front. The bigger lenses need added support from a rail system to get the stress off the lens mount. Understand that even with the lens properly supported you have to be careful . I never transport the FS5 with a lens attached. I have read of horror stories where owners have done this only to find when they took the camera out of their bags the lens fractured the lens mount off the camera front. And yes, Sony will not fix this damage so you have $5600 of junk on your hands. Buy this unit and properly support the lens to the camera. Small investment to make given the price of the camera body

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Affordable and does the trick For the price, this set up is great. I had to get some extra long 15mm rods to support my old cine zoom lens, but compared to any other support baseplate - you pay half the price and get the full bang.
