This Universal Pro Handgrip System from Tilta clamps directly onto the rods of your camera setup, allowing for fast transitions from shoulder-mounted operation to other camera mounts and back again. Snap the bridge onto the rods and lock it down via the built-in tightening screw. This system offers mounting points for 15mm LWS and 19mm studio rod systems. This snap-on design ensures that you will not have to remove accessories already attached to the rods.
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.
