Wooden Camera Top Plate for Panasonic VariCam LT
The Top Plate for Panasonic VariCam LT from Wooden Camera expands your accessory mounting options on top of the camera. The top surface of the plate includes multiple rows of 1/4"-20 mounting holes in standard spacing, and several ARRI accessory mounts (3/8"-16 mounts with locating pin holes). The front of the plate has a row of 1/4"-20 holes, and the sides each have a row of alternating 1/4"-20 and ARRI accessory mounts. The original VariCam LT handle may be reinstalled on the Top Plate using the handle's Panasonic screws. A handy feature for accurate focus measurements is the tape hook, which may be positioned on either side of the plate.
Wooden Camera Unified Baseplate for FS5, EVA-1, VariCam LT, VariCam 35
The Wooden Camera Unified Baseplate supports 15mm LWS rods at the correct lens height, and offers a vertical 15mm rod port for incorporating the optional Unified Lens Adapter Kit. This Kit allows you to support different lens adapters from Wooden Camera, Metabones, and other brands.
The Baseplate includes the Core Unit, a Lower Quick Dovetail tripod plate on the bottom, and a Dovetail Camera Plate for the Sony FS5 and Panasonic EVA-1, VariCam LT, and VariCam 35. Other Unified Baseplate Dovetail Plates are also supported, allowing for quick swaps with a variety of cameras.
The Baseplate provides two quick release options. You can remove the Dovetail Camera Plate only and leave the Core Unit with your rod pair behind, or you can remove the Core Unit from the Lower Quick Dovetail, in which case you'll have a dovetail on the bottom of the Core Unit that's compatible with any 2060 Dovetail, Safety Dovetail, or Shoulder Rig.
The Dovetail Camera Plate features a long slot along its center that lets you secure it to the camera with multiple screws (included), which can be set up to 2.8" (70mm) apart. It also has a non-slip rubber surface that will prevent the camera from twisting.
The Dovetail Camera Plate has an ARCA Swiss standard dovetail compatible with many third-party products. It also has threaded 1/4"-20 threaded holes on the bottom for attaching to gimbals or other compatible tripod plates. The Lower Quick Dovetail has 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes for attaching to tripod plates or ARRI standard bridgeplates, such as the Wooden Camera Unified Bridgeplates.
The Unified Baseplate can also be upgraded for VCT-14 compatible mounting options. Simply attach it to the optional Unified VCT Wedge Plate, which can then be mounted on the Unified VCT-14 Tripod Plate, also sold separately. The Unified Baseplate is backward compatible with Wooden Camera's original Quick Dovetails (Standard, DSLR, and Large).
