The C300 Studio Baseplate is made specifically for the EOS C300 camera. It is exceptionally flat which helps keep the center of gravity low. This baseplate features a pair of 15mm rods that are 12 long running through the length of the baseplate. You can quickly reposition the rods for various lens lengths by loosening the 2 levers, one on each side of the baseplate.
On each side of the baseplate there is also a set of 15mm lightweight holes. The side holes take 15mm female rods that are locked via an Allen screw. This gives users a virtually unlimited amount of mounting options. With these side holes, you have the option of turning the baseplate into a cage configuration.
Another option is to mount a Zwiss Plate with professional batteries off of the side of the baseplate when shooting on a tripod for better balance. When not using a cage configuration, the side holes can be used for an EVF, Zacuto articulating arms, rods and more. The baseplate also has standard ¼ 20 and 3/8 16 holes on the bottom for mounting the rig onto a tripod.
The C300 Studio Baseplate attaches to the camera with 3/8 16 and ¼ 20 screws*. This Baseplate is perfect for a rig like the C300 Stinger or an advanced tripod rig with rods coming off of the back end for external power, etc.
The Cross Fire is a unique kit as it is the Single Action kit and Striker kit combined. It comes with all block rods. The Cross Fire uses the expandable DSLR baseplate so this kit can easily be upgraded from a simple point of contact kit like the Striker Kit to a full shoulder mounted system like the Fast Draw. This kit works on any DSLR camera with or without battery grips as it is infinitely adjustable in height. The baseplate attaches to your tripod plate using the standard tripod plate screws, (2) ¼ 20 and (1) 3/8 16. Your camera can also be quickly released from the rig by turning the red knob then pulling up on your camera. The camera quick release plate stays mounted to your camera so you can quickly switch between using the camera as part of a rig or on its own. You can easily add the optional Z-Finder Pro, DSLR optical viewfinder, by attaching the Z-Finder Mounting Frame (included with the Z-Finder Pro) to the camera quick release plate using two thumb screws.
The Double Barrel kickstand is recommended for the DSLR Double Barrel Kit. It gives the rig a more stable footing when rested on the ground or flat surface, especially when the camera is loaded with many accessories such as follow focuses and matte boxes. It is all black.
Your Zacuto DSLR Base Plate is a highly configurable base plate which is adjustable to accommodate tall and short body cameras and cameras with battery grips. It also has mounting points to attach just about anything. It comes with 2 black 3.5″ rods.
The DSLR Base Plate can accommodate 15mm rods on all 4 sides. On the front are 2 levels for rods. The top is for mounting follow focuses, matte boxes, zoom/focus motors and lens support if space allows. The bottom rods are primarily used for lens support and single or double hand grips. These rods can be locked via allen screw so as to not come loose if using only one side for a single hand grip. The rear rod holes are for rod extensions to support battery power, wireless plates, monitors and numerous other accessories that you may need when in a tripod configuration. The rod holes on the left and right sides are for mounting the gunstock and the offset shoulder pad and counterweight for hand held use. Also mounted on these side rods can be a top handle, monitor arms and the cage which would use both sides at the same time.
On the bottom of the DSLR Base plate are your standard ¼ 20 and 3/8 16 mounting holes for tripods, mono pods, steadicams, etc. The top plate is a quick release plate that with a twist of the red knob lifts straight up and off separating your DSLR with the Z-finder attached, from the rest of your rig. The red knob also gives you left/right movement to adjust the lens position. On the front of the base plate between the rods are 2 allen screws that are used to adjust the top plate vertically. The vertical adjustment is to adjust for different camera body sizes and maintain the proper lens height.
The DSLR Handle is a sturdy versatile handle that mounts onto any 15mm rod system using our Z-mount Zwivel. It is the perfect solution for low mode shooting, lifting your rig on and off your shoulder, as well as a quick and easy way to carry your rig. The handle can swivel and slide so you can position it at the rigs center of gravity for perfect balance. You can also mount additional accessories onto the handle rod by using Z-mounts that will enable you to attach anything from a Zamerican arm, additional 15mm rods, lights and mics. The DSLR Handle is quick releasable from the rig by the twist of a lever. This is the perfect handle for all DSLR rig owners. The DSLR Handle is all black.
Enforcer DSLR Gorilla Rig
The Enforcer is the first of its kind, a foldable DSLR run’n’gun rig. It’s small enough to fit in your back pocket but when unfolded, it’s an extremely stable DSLR camera support. .
The Enforcer includes our Gorilla Plate V2 as the platform for your camera. You can attach your Zacuto Z-Finder Mounting Frame to this Gorilla Plate V2. Attach your camera to the plate with the single ¼ 20 screw and quick release on and off the Enforcer with the red quick release ratcheting lever. The Gorilla Plate can be attached at two different points. Keep the Enforcer in a vertical position for use with a Zacuto Z-Finder. This will give you the correct distance from your eye to the Z-Finder eyecup. Extend the Enforcer via the red push lever to place the camera further away for use without a Z-Finder. This gives you a bit more distance to focus on the camera LCD.
Built into the Enforcer is a gunstock with a comfortable rubber pad. Adjust the angle and/or position of the gunstock with the two Allen screws to conform to your body size and shape.
The Enforcer folds up by first quick releasing your camera off the rig. Then push the red push lever to snap the camera support arm down. Push down on the silver circular cap to flip the gunstock away. Reverse to quickly get the Enforcer ready to shoot!
