SHAPE designed their Sony FS5 Baseplate to suit all the key features of the camera. Built small and lightweight, this baseplate is a perfect solution for your Sony PXW-FS5 camera

A single 1/4"-20 and a single 3/8"-16 captive screw are included on this baseplate to secure your camera's position in translation and rotation so it won't move. 

Rubber pads at the top of the baseplate ensure that your camera doesn’t sit directly on the aluminum. The baseplate fits 15mm standard rods. Secure the rods with a red ratchet knob screw. On the side, SHAPE included 1/4"-20 threaded holes for mounting accessories or support arms for on-board accessories. 

Under the baseplate, SHAPE added (4) 1/4"-20 and (2) 3/8"-16 threaded holes so you can attach your tripod plate. SHAPE removed excess aluminium from the bottom of the plate during the machining process to reduce the weight of the baseplate.

SHAPE also designed an optional removable support bracket for a METABONES® adapter (FS5MA) can be added on the baseplate to support the weight and remove stress to the camera lens mount. Fixed with (2) screws in front of the baseplate, it can be removed when not needed. For a precise positioning, SHAPE designed the bracket with a 3mm vertical adjustment to make sure it's well-positioned for the best support.

The baseplate includes a set of (2) 15mm 10" rods. 

This baseplate suits aerial devices and gimbal application with its lightweight system for mounting any standard 15mm accessories.
