The OConnor Universal Camera Baseplate was designed to adapt small to medium size digital cine cameras (with on-center mounting threads) to the thousands of standard professional accessories available in the industry. The Universal Baseplate provides a sturdy camera platform that is engineered to allow optical axis centering of the lens to the correct rod measurement and the ability to interface with standard studio bridge plates for setups where large and weighty zoom lenses require rock solid support.
With the wide variety of form-factors, from standard camcorder design to hybrid DSLRs and compact digital cine cameras, the Universal Baseplate provides the ability to adapt any camera to a studio 15 mm or 19 mm bridge plate by changing out the four vertical 15 mm rods. The Universal Baseplate also allows for adjustment up and down of any standard set of 15 mm rods attached to the LWS rod brackets for smaller camera builds.
The Universal Baseplate provides a channel in the top plate with a cutout plug to make insertion or removal of the 3-way camera screws quick and easy. The 3-way screws can be tightened by hand, with a tool through the drill holes, or by inserting a slotted screwdriver through a unique flip-up bottom plate access panel.
