The VCT Pro baseplate echoes a traditional ENG style camera with a modern twist. VCT worked well for ENG cameras but modern cameras are lighter and shorter, without a heavy tape recorder or film magazine on the back. Zacuto designers set out to create a universal baseplate that merged the stability and ease of a classic VCT with contemporary cameras and rigs.
- Durable, lightweight construction
- Wide gel-polymer shoulder pad
- One Arri M6 rosette on right side
- Adjustable rod riser
- 10" camera balance sliding range
- Two quick releasable 6.5” rods included
- One ¼ 20 & ⅜ 16 removable screws included
Universal for all Cameras
With lenses and cameras being similar weights, the balance point on modern rigs is where the lens meets the camera body. This is perfect for a VCT style baseplate that places your camera virtually behind you. The VCT Pro is balanced and comfortable. Features unique to Zacuto, including a sliding top plate and adjustable rod mount, make this a truly universal baseplate for all cameras, from a mirrorless to one the size on an Alexa.
VCT Pro based rigs are all about finding perfect balance for your camera. Our lightweight, adjustable rod mount is set far back in the plate, offering plenty of accessory-capable area under the camera lens. This allows you to position your camera further back on the plate, keeping the balance point of your rig directly over your shoulder. The shoulder pad portion of the VCT Pro is set as far forward on the plate as possible to maximize your accessory capable rod area and aid with balance. Our elegant sliding top plate enables quick lens changes and lets you take your camera off the rig in seconds. This top plate with mounting screw tracks is also a key balancing feature. The VCT Pro offers 10” of camera balance sliding range.
