Zacuto Z-VCT-P Overview

With built-in ergonomic shoulder pad, 10" sliding track, extra space for accessories in front, VCT14-compatible V-wedge, red buttons and levers all around, and much more, this is the stylish VCT Pro Baseplate from Zacuto. Use it with all types of cameras, from DSLRs to larger models, like the Alexa.

A section of the baseplate extends out beyond the 15mm LWS rod adapter in front. With the rod adapter thus set back, you have additional space to mount accessories under the camera lens, allowing you to position the camera further back on the plate, keeping the balance point of your rig directly over your shoulder. (The rod adapter is vertically adjustable 1", and has to be in a raised position to allow for accessories to be mounted in the additional space. Also, a 1.8" riser for the rod adapter is optionally available for RED cameras by special order from Zacuto.) Also, on the bottom of the section that protrudes out is where the V-wedge is. There is also a 15mm LWS rod adapter on the rear.

The VCT Pro Baseplate features a 10" sliding track, providing the space to optimally adjust balance after every lens change. Moreover, the included red camera plate can be loosened by a spring-loaded lever instead of a screw, so you can make adjustments quickly and easily. To fully release and remove the plate (and camera), just press a red button on the side of the baseplate and slide the plate out. The rod ports also have spring-loaded levers.

An ARRI M6 rosette is available on the front for attaching accessories and grips, and there are also three 1/4"-20 threaded holes on the side providing additional mounting options. 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 tripod mount holes are available on the bottom to use instead of the V-wedge. The shoulder pad runs pretty much along the entire length as well as width of the baseplate, and is made of gel polymer. Two 6.5" 15mm rods are included. One 1/4"-20 and one 3/8"-16 screw are supplied for the camera plate. The VCT Pro Baseplate is made in the USA.

question

With the first version of Universal VCT, with a Sony FS7, the stock LCD was too close to the face, with no possibility of moving the camera forward. Did someone try this new version with a FS7? Is it possible to move the camera enough forward to get the stock LCD with stock bracket to a good distance of the face?
Asked by: Anonymous
Sony designed the LCD to be used with the loupe when in shoulder mode. Thus the LCD mounting rod, while improved with a non-twisty square post with the F7 Mark II, is not really meant to extend the LCD in shoulder mode. Since Zacuto is all about getting the camera back on the shoulder, and not forward, I do not see this plate being able to do what you wish.

question

Will this work with the Zacuto half cage? Not the 15mm rod cage but the Z-rail half-cage, it looks like the plate knob would be in the way
Asked by: Tyler
While all the knobs are of the ratchet type (meaning you can pull the knob out for repositioning) the final answer depends greatly on the camera and the other accoutrement you using. So that we may best assist you, please email us at [email protected]

Is the small red sliding camera mounting plate compatible with arca type clamps such as the Kessler kwik?
Asked by: Anonymous
The sliding camera plate is not arca type. However Zacuto offers the VCT Pro Tripod Doc, B&H # ZAZVCTPD, for this exact purpose. https://bhpho.to/2F3poO0

question

Does this attach directly to a tripod?
Asked by: Brandon
I hate to disagree with staff but the item as shown in the pictures will not fit directly to a tripod as supplied. You will need to buy the VCT Tripod Adapter Plate SKU# Z-VCTTP that has the wedge clamp and then you can fit it to a tripod plate. Wow do I know? Because I bought the item shown and then had to buy the VCT Tripod Plate as an extra.Frank
