The Zacuto C100/C300/C500 Studio Baseplate with 12" (30.48 cm) Rods is designed specifically for the Canon EOS C100/C300/C500 camera. It is exceptionally flat which helps to keep the center of gravity quite low. This baseplate features a pair of 0.59" (15 mm) rods that are 12" (304.8 mm) long running through the length of the baseplate. You can quickly reposition the rods for various lens lengths by loosening the 2 levers, one on each side of the baseplate.
On each side of the baseplate there is also a set of 0.59" (15 mm) lightweight holes. The side holes take 0.59" (15 mm) female rods that are locked with Allen screws. This gives you a virtually unlimited amount of mounting options. With these side holes, you have the option of turning the baseplate into a cage configuration. You can even mount a Zwiss Plate with professional batteries on the side of the baseplate when shooting on a tripod for better balance. When not using a cage configuration, the side holes can be used for an EVF, Zacuto articulating arms, rods and more. The baseplate also has standard 1/4" 20 and 3/8" 16 holes on the bottom for mounting the rig onto a tripod.
The C300 Studio Baseplate attaches to the camera with 3/8" 16 and 1/4" 20 screws. This Baseplate is perfect for a rig like the C100/C300/C500 Stinger or an advanced tripod rig with rods extending at the back for external power.
