Zacuto Z-VCT-P overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Zacuto Z-VCT-P reviews

    VCT Pro Baseplate is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good What I like : - you can adjust the plate to balance the camera on the shoulder - the gel shoulder pad looks confortable, but I have not tested it much - you can put rods in front and back - you have a rosette on the right side - it fits perfectly on a vct plate and you have the 2 points of attachment to secure the camera. What I like less: - I had to change the side of the mounted screw because I could not squeeze on the right side because of the rosette - There is just one rosette at the right side and not at the left. - The rods don't go very far in the holes because they are blocked by the gel shoulder pad, I hope this correctly supports the weight of a follow focus, a mattebox ... Be careful to tighten the screw! - I tested the side handle of my Sony FS7 on the rosette and it doesn't tighten well

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid for my FS5 I've used the original VCT and this is a pretty solid upgrade. The sliding plate it amazing as I often have to adjust when switching from a huge lens to a small one- it was a huge pain before but is quick and simple now. The rosette on the right is nice and helps save space on the rails when mounting a handgrip. It's about as small as can be while still being incredibly useful.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from If ya shoot off the shoulder, get one! I will say this will set on your shoulder rather well. I have it rigged up to my FS7, FS7 lens, v-mount bat with distribution box and a few other bits and it balances nicely. Great for those who run and gun from a pro tripod like a Vinten. Great build, feels solid, love the idea that you can rebalance the camera easily, only a slight wobble when mounted to tripod, but I feel that has more to do with my tripod plate than the VCT Baselplate. Price is a bit steep, but I am not felling ripped off.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Improved Version, but... The handle rosette is higher that the old version, so you can set it on the floor without tipping. The sliding base plate is a good feature, however mine was too tight at a midpoint. Not great quality control to send this one out. I had to move ahead using it for my shoot. I hope it loosens up with more use, but it should have been perfect out of the box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Baseplate Using this VCT with my FS7 and its perfect! Love the fact that you can adjust the camera while it is mounted to the shoulder pad when you need to swap lenses. I would highly recommend item!
    Date published: 2017-07-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great baseplate Yes, as Zacuto mentioned in their promo. ... probably the last baseplate you'll need to buy. It's truly the first time that I've found an ENG configuration for my GH4 DSLR that I like and feels comfortable in heavy use.
    Date published: 2017-08-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Baseplate Heaven Well built, high quality camera baseplate that can operate with many smaller professional cameras. Sliding plate feature & rosette are a huge improvement over previous model.
