The Blackmagic Stinger kit is an inline shoulder mounted kit that accommodates various accessories. It is designed to be used with an offset electronic viewfinder or monitor, or by looking sideways at the camera screen.
The kit includes Zacuto's Mini Baseplate, which provides up and down and side to side movement to center the lens with a follow focus or matte box. The Zgrips V3 Short with 4.5" rods keep your arms tucked in close for comfort and stability, and include articulation at the handgrips for pivoting and swinging back and forth where the handles meet at the center. They can quick release away to put the rig on a tripod or for storage.
Extending behind the baseplate is a shoulder pad and a Horizontal Zwiss Plate (cheeseplate). The Horizontal Zwiss Plate has four quick release rod ports, one on each corner, to hold articulating arms or rods. It can also accept a V-mount or 3-stud/gold mount battery plate and up to two wireless plates. It can be set vertically for balance when being used shoulder mounted and then quick releases off the rods and slides on horizontally for tripod use so the view of the Blackmagic camera screen is not blocked.
Finally, the kit includes the Blackmagic Top Handle, ideal for carrying or for low mode shooting. The handle attaches to the camera with a 5in Z-rail and 3 included ¼ 20” screws. The Blackmagic Top Handle can quick release on and off the Z-rail. It can face back or front, and slides up and down the Z-rail for balance. The rod running through the handle is threaded for extensions and can accept a Z-release mount like Zacuto's T-mount or Tri-mount to hold accessories.
