Quick Overview

Camera Support - For Sony PMW-F3

Details

Cameras have been getting smaller and smaller. Cine-style lenses... not so much. Take a nice, high-quality zoom lens, for instance. Mount one and your lightweight, compact camera body nosedives at a rather alarming speed while you reach for the mattebox. An expensive, heavy-duty tripod system or a backend loaded with things like batteries, onboard recorders and barbell weights can compensate, but your camera body is now formerly 'compact' and 'lightweight.' Silly. Introducing the Cine Base M15, 16x9 Inc.'s elegant way of restoring balancing to your camera and, literally by extension, to your filmmaking universe. Think 20 inches of industry-standard 15mm rods and a simple support plate.

16x9 Inc. Cine Base M15

Solid Construction

Machined out of solid aluminum, the 15mm Cine Base provides a solid build for the toughest environments. Built of quality materials and machined with precision, the 15mm Cine Base is designed to stand the test of time.
16x9 Inc. 15mm Support Base - Support Rods

Industry-standard 15mm Support Rods

The 15mm Cine Base includes two 12" heavy-duty 15mm industry-standard aluminum rods and two 8" extension rods for a combined length of 20".
16x9 Inc. 15mm Support Base - Locking Knobs

Dual-Locking Knobs for 15mm Support Rods

A dual-locking mechanism securely locks the industry-standard 15mm Support Rods onto the 15mm Cine Base. The individual lock levers make it possible to adjust the industry-standard 15mm Support Rods individually for fine tuning.
16x9 Inc. 15mm Support Base - Locking Mechanism

Secure Locking Mechanism

Located on the camera operator's side, a locking lever securely locks the 15mm Cine Base onto the Compact Dovetail or any industry-standard dovetail rails. The Locking Lever activates a spring loaded brake-system, preventing the 15mm Cine Base from sliding on the dovetail rails.
16x9 Inc. 15mm Support Base - Safety Lock

Safety Lock for Camera Plate

The 15mm Cine Base incorporates a Safety Lock mechanism that automatically and securely locks the Camera Support Plate. When mounting the Camera Support Plate onto the 15mm Cine Base, the Safety Lock automatically lowers itself on contact. Once in place, the Camera Support Plate is secure. To release the Camera Support Plate, simply press down on the Safety Lock and slide the Camera Support Plate off.
16x9 Inc. 15mm Support Base - Smooth Sliding

Smooth Sliding

Smooth sliding between the 15mm Cine Base and the dovetail is made possible by the addition of delrin on the bottom of the 15mm Cine Base. The added feature will allow you to smoothly slide and balance your camera without any binding movements.

Camera Support Spacer

Multiple Threads for Added Support

16x9 Inc. Camera Plate - Dovetail Support

Quick & Secure Mount

The bottom dovetail design allows the Camera Support Plate to securely and quickly mount onto the 15mm Cine Base. When the job requires a crane and/or jib, the Camera Support Plate can mount directly onto the Compact Cine Base Dovetail plate.
16x9 Inc. Camera Plate - Locking Mechanism

Redundant Locking Mechanism

The Camera Support Plate automatically and securely locks onto place when mounted on the 15mm Cine Base. For added security, the Camera Support Plate adds a redundant locking mechanism that is activated on the side panel. A 3/32" set-screw activates a spring loaded brake-system preventing the Camera Support Plate from shifting off the 15mm Cine Base or Comapct Dovetail.

Universal Compact Dovetail

Designed for quick and easy mounting, the 16x9 Inc., Compact Dovetail offers rigid support and a wide range of balance adjustment capability. Machined out of solid aluminum, the Compact Dovetail offers 9" of smooth travel space for proper camera balancing.
