Item description

Highest possible flexibility
The Aptaris 15mm Universal LWS Baseplate is the perfect base for almost any camera. With the supplied Space Rods the Baseplate can be aligned in such a way, that the lens has the right distance to the rods, e.g. to use a Follow Focus or a Mattebox - no matter whether a DSLR/CSC or a professional film camera like the Canon C300 is concerned.

Well thought-out design
The Baseplate made in Germany has been developed in cooperation with professional film makers. Many details are a great help for achieving optimal results in filming and to be as flexible as possible.
For cameras, which are fastened with just one screw, the Baseplate provides an anti-twist lock, which locks the camera in place even under extreme stress.
Some Viewfinders and battery handles always offset the tripod thread by a few millimetres, so that the lens is no longer centrally arranged to the rods. The special shape of the camera plate enables you to compensate this offset.
Several 1/4 inch threads on all sides enable convenient mounting of more accessories by using swivel arms.

Ready for further expansion
The Baseplate comes with 3 x 3/8 inch threads in the bottom side for fastening on a video tripod. The scope of delivery already contains 3 x 3/8 inch to 1/4 inch adapters, to be able to work with most tripod systems.
For ground level shots an optionally available additional carrier handle can be fastened on the Baseplate.
The 15mm Light-Weight-Support Standards allow you to convert the Baseplate in combination with the Aptaris handle module and the Aptaris shoulder module into a compact shoulder rig in almost no time at all.

Premium quality “Made in Germany”
Developed in cooperation with the German manufacturer SIX, Aptaris convinces with highest accuracy in workmanship, outstanding material properties and well thought-out engineering. Continuous quality inspections ensure premium quality and extreme longevity, even under highest loads in permanent use. This is supported by exceptional material properties: Aptaris is made of extremely light aircraft aluminium and stainless steel.
