SHAPE WLB Sony FS5 Baseplate Kit

SHAPE designed a baseplate that would fit with all the key features of the camera.

Built small and lightweight, this baseplate is a perfect solution for the Sony FS5.

With the success of the Remote Extension for the Sony FS7, SHAPE WLB designed a similar solution adapted for the handle of the FS5. The handle is fixed with a SHAPE Standard ARRI rosette that you install on the camera. The handle is then secured with a ratchet knob screw on the rosette. The remote extension handle includes their patented red push button technology that allows the handle a 360 degrees of rotation. The simplest way to adjust a handle! With a press of your thumb, you can adjust the angle of the handle; this will make your work easier. The length of the arm is 14cm (5 5/8”) and the adjustment length is 5 cm (2”). The Sony handle is fixed on the extension arm with the same mechanism used to install the handle on the camera.


  • 1/4-20 treaded holes for side mounting on the baseplate
  • 3/8-16 and 1/4-20 captive screw to secure the camera position for both rotation and translation
