Outfit your DSLR or compact camcorder for professional video productions with the Sachtler Ace Accessories Kit with Shoulder Rig . The kit centres around the height-adjustable Ace Baseplate, which features a quick-release plate and 15mm rod support, and a pair of 12" long rods to support an included Ace Follow Focus and Ace Matte Box. To better align the follow focus with the height of your camera/lens on the baseplate, an Ace Height Extender is also included. Completing the kit is the Ace Shoulder Rig, which provides a pair of adjustable handgrips and a shoulder pad with counterweight. The counterweight helps to offset front-heavy setups and place the weight of the rig over your shoulder to help reduce forearm strain on longer shoots.

The Sachtler Ace Baseplate is a height-adjustable camera baseplate featuring 15mm rod support and 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 tripod mount threads on the bottom. You can attach two 15mm rods, sold separately, to support a follow focus or matte box. One lever secures both rods in place at once. Height is adjustable from 4.8 cm to 7.2 cm by simply loosening another lever and lifting the top portion of the baseplate.
A quick release camera plate, anti-twist stop, and spare mounting screws are included with the baseplate. The anti-twist stop attaches on top of the quick release plate using one of the spare mounting screws to prevent your camera from turning, especially useful for DSLRs. It attaches positioned across at any point along the length of the quick release plate. The spare camera screws come recessed within slots on the top side of the baseplate.
