Tilta BS-T05 overview

  • 1Description

The Tilta 15mm Lightweight Baseplate / Dovetail Plate is a 15mm rod support system designed for DSLR cameras and small to medium sized camcorders. The combo design features a baseplate with adjustable 15mm rod ports, 5" and 10" dovetail plates for better balancing of rigs on tripods, and solid machined aluminum construction. Two sets of 15mm rod pairs come included, in lengths of 7.87" and 11.8".

Your camera mounts to the baseplate via a 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 screw. Ports are available for using 15mm rod pairs. Levers on the side of the baseplate allow for adjusting the position of the rods. The baseplate also has two Arri compatible rosettes on each side for connecting dog bones, handles, or other accessories.

For mounting the baseplate onto tripods, two dovetail plates are provided. The dovetail plate is attached to the tripod using the provided 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads. The baseplate slides onto the dovetail plate, letting you quickly attach and release your entire rig from the tripod.

The 5" dovetail plate is suitable for smaller rigs, while the 10" plate allows larger rigs to be centered and balanced. The 10" dovetail plate locks in via a lever on the side of the baseplate, and the 5" dovetail plate locks in with a thumb screw. Both dovetail plates have safety stops on both ends.

Tilta BS-T05 reviews

15mm Lightweight Baseplate / Dovetail Plate is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from So close to perfect Luckily I have a machine shop and can correct the issues with this piece. I can't speak about longevity but the metal does get thin and angular up against the camera base - it should be fine for all but the heaviest setups but looks like it'll need inspection every so often to make sure cracks don't form. The issue is that the clamp against the dovetail is a single point. The rest of the plate can rock back and forth when clamped so even when you think it's tight, there's still a lot of movement between the camera baseplate and the dovetail. A couple delrin shims should fix it fine, but in stock form it's very sloppy. Otherwise, the rosettes are nice, the spacing is correct for C300, and it's very easy and fast to strip off the camera (as opposed to the arri monstrosity I used to own)
