The Gorilla Plate is used in both of Zacuto's Gorilla Kits (Striker and Target Shooter), and must be used with the Z-Finder V2 or Pro (an additional frame must purchased to mount the V2).
The Gorilla plate attaches to the camera using the standard tripod screw hole and the baseplate to the tripod via the (2) ¼ 20” screw holes and a locking pin hole. The tripod plate can also be mounted underneath the Gorilla plate so you can quickly go from handheld to tripod use. The Z-Finder frame attaches to the Gorilla plate using two thumb screws (the thumb screws and slider are not included with the Gorilla Plate; they are included with the Z-Finder Frames). The frame can be removed by loosening the thumb screws and pulling up on the frame.
A Gorilla Plate and Frame is included with the Z-Finder Pro. If you need to mount the Z-Finder on an additional camera, an additional Gorilla Plate and Frame is required. This item must be sold with 1 of the 3 Z-Finder Mounting Frames, sold separately. The Gorilla plate does not work with the DSLR baseplate as it uses its own quick release system.
Note: The tapped holes on the bottom of the Gorilla plate are offset from the center of the lens. This is only a concern if you are using the Gorilla plate with other rigs that need the matte box in line with the lens/mounting screw hole. Also, the gorilla plate covers the battery compartment door on the Canon T2i camera. If that is a problem, please order the adhesive frame instead.
