Overview

Overview

The Wooden Camera Unified Baseplate for Sony FS5 / VariCam LT / VariCam 35 / Panasonic EVA1 is a quick-release baseplate to provide lightweight 15mm rod support at the correct lens height for these Compatible Cameras:

  • Sony PXW-FS5
  • Panasonic VariCam LT
  • Panasonic VariCam 35
  • Panasonic AU-EVA1

15mm rods pass through front-to-back and feature (2) locking thumbscrews per side.

This kit includes:

  • Baseplate core module (no dovetail)
  • Dovetail Plate
  • Lower Quick Dovetail
  • (2) 1/4"-20 low profile screw
  • (2) 3/8"-16 low profile screw

The baseplate quick-releases in two ways which provides you, the camera operator, the option to pack and take your 15mm lightweight rods or to leave them behind.

Features:

  • Upper dovetail based on ARCA Swiss dovetail shape
  • Vertical 15mm rod hole for optional support posts
  • Pass Through 15mm lightweight rod openings (with 2x locking thumbscrews per rod)
  • Lower dovetail based on an ARRI standard dovetail shape
  • 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mount holes for securing to tripod plates or bridgeplates

On the upper dovetail, a vertical 15mm rod opening is included to support a lens adapter foot directly in front of the camera body. (An example of this would be the Sony FS5 using a Metabones Canon EF adapter.) The upper dovetail would be positioned with the vertical 15mm rod opening to the front and the optional Wooden Camera Unified Lens Adapter Support Kit (sold separately) would be installed and threaded into the Metabones support foot. 

The bottom of the baseplate is comprised of the Lower Quick Dovetail which has 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes for attaching to tripod plate or ARRI standard bridgeplate such as Unified Bridgeplate (19mm) or Unified Bridgeplate (15mm Studio). To remove the camera from the included Lower Quick Dovetail and take the 15mm lightweight rods with you, unlock the left thumbscrew, slide the baseplate backwards a short distance, and lift up. This action exposes an integrated ARRI dovetail slot on the bottom which can attach directly to any 2060 Dovetails, Safety Dovetails, or Shoulder Rigs.

To remove the camera and leave the LW 15mm rods behind:

Unlock the right side thumbscrew, slide the camera backwards a short distance, then lift straight up.

To remove the camera from the included Lower Quick Dovetail and take the 15mm lightweight rods with you:

Unlock the left thumbscrew, slide the baseplate backwards a short distance, then lift up. This action exposes an integrated ARRI dovetail slot on the bottom which can attach directly to any 2060 Dovetails, Safety Dovetails, or Shoulder Rigs.

For a VCT-14 compatible mounting option:

The Unified Baseplate can be attached to an optional Unified VCT Wedge Plate to provide easy counterbalance ability while on the shoulder. This could then be attached to the Unified VCT-14 Tripod Plate which would be attached to the tripod head.

For mounting on a gimbal/jib/crane:

Additional Unified Lower Quick Dovetails can be puchased to mount to gimbals, jibs, cranes, etc. so you can perform quick and repeatable camera transitions.

NOTE: The Unified Baseplate is backwards compatible with the Wooden Camera original Quick Dovetail (Standard) and Quick Dovetail (DSLR, Large). Camera accessories are sold separately from the Unified Baseplate.
