The SHIFT Baseplate includes a soft and durable, form-fitting shoulder pad for superior comfort while on the user’s shoulder. At the top of the plate, a sliding dovetail with over 4.5 inches of slide capacity can accept a wide range of cameras and allow for precise balance and positioning adjustments with the integrated locking lever. Height adjustable rod ports at the front and rear of the plate facilitate accurate positioning of the included 4” and 8” carbon fiber iris rod sets for lining up accessories such as a matte box, follow focus, hand grips and battery plates or counterweights. The resting position of the flip out Quick-Shift Plate is also adjustable so that it can be positioned for different body types.
- NOTE: Certain DSLR cameras or other small cameras where the lens sits very close to the bottom surface of the camera will require the use of a spacer or quick release plate to get the support rods to the industry standard 85mm relation to the lens center. If you are not planning on running a matte box or you have a matte box that is adjustable, this may not be an issue. When using a small DSLR type of camera, we recommend the use of a quick release plate such as those made by: Arca Swiss, Really Right Stuff, Kessler, Peak Design, etc.
