Zacuto Stinger for Canon C100-C300- C500
The EOS C300 Stinger rig from Zacuto is an in-line system best used on long shooting days. It is a balanced shoulder-mounted rig that features Zacuto's C300 Studio Baseplate which attaches to the camera with 3/8” 16 and ¼” 20 screws.*
This baseplate features a pair of 15mm rods that are 12” 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 there is also a set of 15mm lightweight holes. The side holes take 15mm female rods that are locked via an allen screw. This gives users a virtually unlimited amount of mounting options. With these side holes, you have the option of turning the baseplate into a cage configuration.
Another option is to mount a Zwiss Plate with professional batteries off of the side 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 has standard ¼” 20 and 3/8” 16 holes on the bottom for mounting the rig onto a tripod.
The Stinger includes Zacuto's Shoulder Pad with 7” rods and Z-Lite 7 lb counterbalance weight for a fully balanced in-line rig. The more balanced and less front heavy the rig, the longer you can hold it without arm fatigue. You can slide the counterbalance weight forward and backward on the rods for custom comfort.
This rig can be used on your left or right shoulder. With the shoulder pad and counterbalance weight coming directly off of the back of the baseplate, the rig is perfectly in-line and ready to be used with one of Zacuto's EVFs for traditional ENG style shooting. You can mount your EVF to the side of the rig using Zacuto's EVF Standard Mount Kit. You can also use the flip out screen on the Canon EOS C300 camera when it is mounted on top of the handle and tipped down. This rig is compatible with any 15mm accessories.

* NOTE: The screw hole pattern on the C300 Studio Baseplate is ¼” 20, 3/8” 16, 3/8” 16, 3/8” 16. To mount the C300 camera, you will use the 1/4” 20 and the first 3/8” 16 screw hole. The C300 Studio Baseplate will ship with one ¼” 20 screw and one 3/8” 16 screw. If you are mounting an Epic or Scarlet camera, you will use the last two 3/8” 16 screws.
