The Sony VENICE Left Field Quick Release Baseplate Kit from Bright Tangerine is a 15mm LWS rod support with an ARRI dovetail and swappable riser block. The kit consists of the universal Left Field 15mm LWS Quick Release Baseplate Core, a camera-specific riser, and a dovetail plate. The riser supports the Sony VENICE, F55, and F5 as well as the Blackmagic Design URSA Mini Pro and URSA Mini 4.6K cameras. Other risers for the Left Field Baseplate are optionally available that support different cameras, and the different risers can be swapped in on the same baseplate. The riser first screws into the baseplate, and then the riser's camera mount screws can be accessed from underneath the baseplate to secure the camera.
The baseplate features 1/4"-20 and ARRI 3/8"-16 accessory mount ports. These ports also support optional side plates for creating a cage solution. The baseplate is made out of a single block of aluminum for optimal reliability. The kip levers that secure the rods are designed strong enough to each secure a short rod, so you can have a short pair in front and short pair on the rear. Short rods are easier to pack away in carry cases that provide limited space for accessories, so this convenience allows for easier travel. However, if you use long rods, two levers will secure each rod with more strength. The included dovetail plate allows you to attach the baseplate to tripods and other supports.
