The Left Field 15mm LWS Quick Release Baseplate Core Mk II is a universal baseplate designed to work with a number of camera systems using interchangeable riser blocks to provide the correct optical height for each camera.
If you own, rent or work with multiple cameras, you can simply swap out the riser block to get the correct optical height for multiple cameras.
The baseplate uses the patented Open•UP Quick Release system to work with any standard ARRI dovetail and can also be used with the low profile Left Field ARRI Dovetail Plate to quickly go from tripod to shoulder mount or gimbal. The sliding base also helps to provide optimal balance for the camera operator.
The three-stage lever lets you vertically release, slide and securely lock into place. A safety mechanism prevents any accidental releases. Safety stops on the bottom of the baseplate engage with full size ARRI dovetail safety stops and can be retracted when used with the Left Field Dovetail plate, perfect for transitioning from from tripod to shoulder mount or gimbal. The sliding base also helps to provide optimal balance for the camera operator.
The baseplate mounts two industry standard 15mm LWS rods which are secured with the kip levers. If you need to travel frequently or pack light, two sets of shorter rods can be used to create a longer rod mount. If a single set of long rods is used, the front and rear kip levers can be used to provide extra rigidity.
Designed to last, the baseplate is machined from a single block of aluminium to handle the most extreme environments.
