Small rig make excellent accessories for your film camera needs. You can¡¯t fault the material quality or high machining standard.
Well built solid metal plate. This is a true VCT-14 plate with spring loaded back pin which helps to lock the camera with no wiggle. Avoid VCT-U14 plates because they have a fixed back pin and usually are not solid metal. Despite the all metal construction it doesn't weigh as much as it could because of the cutouts on the sides.
The Smallrig VCT plate is solidly built, precisely machined, and affordable. It is far better built and a much better fit than many of the generic VCT-14 plates that are floating around. I am using with a Lanpart VCT rig with a Panasonic EVA1, and it clicks in and fits without any play in the mount, which is a vast improvement to the wiggly VCT plate that I had. The Smallrig version also has a neat cut-in profile at the back that slims it down nicely and minimizes weight without sacrificing build or functionality. I highly recommend it.
I surely wonder why the Sony version is so expensive. The SmallRig Release plate is of such a high quality for so much lower price than the Sony. SmallRig for me is the definitive winner.
Seems as smooth and as robust as the Sony Arri VCTs
Was unsure about this plate but was impressed with small rigs other products so gave it a go. Showed it to my grip and he was super impressed. Will probably buy a second
?I bought this smallrig quick release adapter for use with the smallrig quick release shoulder plate on my Sony FS7ii and Manfrotto 504HD head. It's extremely well built and solid. Having the ability to quickly remove my fs7ii from the tripod and grab footage is unparalleled. The price point was extremely attractive vs zacuto.
I purchased for use on a Sony F55. The VCT-14 plate mount was very secure with no play at the back. I purchased the Small rig shoulder mount with sliding base plate and they work well together. It raises the center of gravity and I miss having pass thru support rods, but it's worth it for the quick release feature in an ENG situation. Feels solid and well made.
It delivers what it should do! Nothing more and nothing less. For an affordable price.
