The Rod Support Base gives the GH5 and Sony A7RIII, A7III and A9 cages a set of 15mm rods perfectly spaced for use with matte boxes and other rod mounted accessories.The 8” included rods slide all the way through the base for length adjustability. The base of the GH5 Cage slides easily into the Rod Support and locks securely into place. Just loosen the lock lever and push down the lock button to remove the cage from the support. The bottom of the rod support has ¼ 20 and ⅜ 16 screw holes for mounting your tripod. It is also a dovetail for sliding into the VCT Pro. This Rod Support Base is made specifically for use with the GH5 Cage and A7III, A7RIII and A9 Cage.

excellent but
I use this with my GH5 cage. It's a great addition to my kit.

The whole rig can sit on the tripod or I can quickly take it out of this support base to use in a smaller configuration.

One little niggle though, otherwise I'd give it five stars. if I tighten either of the rod clamps anything tighter than very lightly, it becomes difficult to mount or even adjust my Vocas matte box. That makes it difficult to mount my magic arm to the rod as it will turn with the weight of the accessory. Tighten it to stop the rotation and the matte box becomes jammed. Vocas products are impeccably engineered so I doubt the problem lies with my matte box. This is probably just a thing you have to deal with when you try to trick a stills camera up to be operated like a movie camera.

That said, I do think that Zacuto are one of the best at these after market accessories. I'll be coming back here if I need anything else for my kit.
