The Universal Baseplate mounts to the camera with a 1/4 20″ screw and a locking pin and it attaches to all tripods with both 3/8″ & 1/4 20 screw sizes. The baseplate has 4.5″ of slide capability on the tripod and 4.5″ of slide for the camera as well.. The Baseplate has up and down as well as side to side adjustments, allowing it to align all cameras with various equipment.

The Universal Baseplate comes standard with a T-slide consisting of a 1/4-20 screw and a locking pin. One has a 1/4-20 screw but lacks the locking pin, and the other allows for the use of cameras requiring a 3/8-16 camera tie-down.

Note: When using DSLR cameras, like the Canon 5D Mark III, you may need a riser to utilize accessories properly.
