The SHAPE V-Lock Quick Release Baseplate is a long format baseplate and it can be used shoulder mounted, tripod mounted, and attached to V-lock tripod adapters. The baseplate includes a removable shoulder pad and features rosette adapters for ARRI standard handles. It has 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16 tripod mount threads and a V-lock delta adapter for attaching SHAPE VCT Tripod Plate (VCTSH) or any VCT-14 tripod plate.
The shoulder pad secures on by touch fasteners. The tripod mount threads are located underneath the shoulder pad. (2 pairs) of 15 mm rods (8″ and 4″) are included for the front adn back of the baseplate. For attaching a matte box and other accessories, the rod adapter can be adjusted vertically if you remove the screw holding it in position. This baseplate also supports optional SHAPE 15 mm Studio and 19 mm Studio adapters in place of the included one. The baseplate features three camera mount slots, all supporting 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16 screws. The off-center slots allow you to mount your camera offset if you use a 15 mm Studio Adapter. 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16 mounting threads are peppered behind the three slots for attaching articulating arms and other accessories. Two 1/4″-20 and two 3/8″-16 camera mount screws are included.
The V-Lock Replacement Pad from SHAPE is a replacement shoulder pad for the BP SERIES v-lock quick release baseplate (BP0008, BP8000, BP7000). The pad utilizes a hook-and-loop system which allows for easy attachment and removal. The additional padding provided by the strap increases user comfort and reduces strain on the shoulder.
SHAPE designed the FS5/FS5M2 adapter plate to allow more adjustment when using the Sony FS5 or FS5M2 camera with the SHAPE V-lock quick release baseplate (BP0008). The adapter also comes with a removable Metabones adaptor plate (FS5MA) in the front with 3 mm of vertical adjustment to provide great support. Fixed with 2 screws, this will support the weight and reduce the stress of the camera lens mount. For a precise positioning, we designed the bracket with a 3 mm vertical adjustment to make sure it’s well positioned for the best support.
