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.
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.
