Sachtler Ace Baseplate

Check pricing and availability: B&H | Amazon

I used to think baseplates were mundane until the little FOTGA DP500 I had couldn't handle the load -- and the Sachtler Ace showed up on my doorstep. The Sachtler is an exceptionally well-designed piece of kit which rises to industrial art. Robust & elegant at the same time, the Ace functions as if it was designed by filmmakers with plenty of scar tissue themselves.
