    Redrock Micro DSLR Baseplate Reviews

    DSLR Baseplate is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A solid foundation for DSLRs I use this with a Canon 5D3. The quick release is perfect, and whole unit is sturdy enough to keep everything tight and in line; follow focus, etc... I don't understand the criticisms below with regard to function, but the price does sting a bit. I build off of an accessory baseplate, so I don't need my DSLR baseplate to connect to my tripod. I do wish this unit allowed a way to attach an HDMI support clamp, however, similar to Zacuto's Pincher, but I'm happy with it. I owned two others previously, which I had picked up cheap on an auction site. Being indecisive, I sold them both . . . oops. So, this is my first new one, and I'd buy it again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid After having the opportunity to put this guy to initial tests of a 48hr film festival and a few wedding shoots I got to say this part is rock solid. Never once during all manners of picking up my shoulder rig did my DSLR come the slightest bit loose from the thumbscrew. The quick release functions great as well and its great that this baseplate doesn't cover the battery slot making swaps as easy as can be. I'll keep using the product and see if there are any problems as time wears on but so far I have no cons to complain about other than the cost. But hey, everything in this industry is absurdly expensive anyway.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what the DSLR doctor ordered There are many DSLR baseplates, most of which don't address the single biggest problem of mounting your SLR to rods and accessories: the weak single point of contact via the 1/4 tripod hole. Redrock addresses this with a simple set screw that prevents the camera from swiveling and thus keeps the entire rig from loosening and falling off the camera. The hardware is rock solid and compact, and the price is more than reasonable. The one disadvantage is a lack of adjustable height, which may cause issues with accessories (like israeli arms) fitting under lenses, etc.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Construction This is well built and feels like it will last. Small locking pins for Nikon and Canon bodies won't do much if using Gorilla Plate or any sort of Viewfinder mount, which makes camera shift a problem (especially if using in conjunction w/ a follow-focus unit).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Quality I can't say anything bad about this product. It's well engineered and works like a charm. I originally bought it to provide some height to my GH2 because the indian manufactured matte box I have is too big and extended below my rails set up. Unfortunately this baseplate didn't quite give me all the height I needed, but I'm keeping it anyway. I'll figure out something else for the mattebox.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Plate works great w/ the quick release, sturdiness. Couple issues is that I have to check the tightness of the screw into the camera. It comes loose after a while from the way I use it. I basically use a Captain Stubling setup, and often handle rig by the DSLR itself. This puts the weight of the rig on that screw, and loosens over time. The other thing is, I'm not sure how to apply the rubber gasket that comes with it. Do you stick the entire thing on? Just the edge part? Just the center?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy build Great when having multiple platforms. I have one platform set up for a 300mm 2.8 IS and one set up for shorter prime focal lenghts and having this quick release is a must to swap back and forth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey but worth it if you're looking to save money go for like Jag35 or something like that. If you're looking to get the most bang out of your buck, go for Red Rock Micro all the way. I started with a simple gear ring and now I am in the process of creating my own custom rig. I am having tons of fun and it all starts with this base plate here which is compatible with any industry products. It has a spring loaded quick release. I must say I am continually impressed by the design and build of red rock products. I have spent over seven hundred dollars on their plastic and carbon fiber and I do not regret spending one penny. I am definitely hooked and plan to go red rock all the way. The best thing about red rock is that you build your own camera setup! It's like an erector set for videographers! The foundation of which is this pricey but necessary base plate.
