VCT14 quick release

PostTue Dec 04, 2018 4:36 pm

I've just bought a very nice tripod which comes with a Sony VCT14 quick release plate.

I've had a search of this forum and there's a reference to an accessory which fixes to the bottom of the camera (Ursa Mini 4K in my case) to enable it to lock into a VCT14.

But I can't find a link to it.

Any ideas welcome.

You need the BM shoulder mount kit, which screws into the bittom if the Ursa Mini, and it snaps into the VCT14 plate. This camera mount plate was designed specifically for the Ursa Mini cameras.
Wooden camera and Zacuto also make a VCT14 camera plate. Search for VCT14 or Shoulder Mount camera plate.

Denny,
Thanks. I hadn’t thought of the shoulder mount. Looks as though that will work. Small rig do one at a very reasonable price.
thanks again for replying

Yes Paul, the VCT14 was designed to work with the shoulder plates on ENG cameras, to go from tripod to mobile shoulder shooting quickly.

Yes Baz, yes it does, as long as you have the shoulder mount kit on the camera :!:
