Anyone shoot with a Panasonic HVX200, HPX170, HMC150 or Sony EX1?

Curtis Guise

I started a side project this year making base plates for the Panasonic HVX200 / HVX200a, HPX170 and HMC150. I am also working on one for the Sony EX1 (no pics of that one yet).

The plates protect the base of the camera from cracking when mounted to a tripod and they add multiple 1/4" and 3/8" mounting holes. The HPX170 / HMC150 plates have the new tripod holes lined up with the center line of the lens. That solves an issue for some people using matte boxes or lens adapters.

I also made a Chrosziel 450 adapter plate so that matte box can still be used with the base plates.

Here are pictures of them all. You can also see everything on my site at and the link to order is on there or in the accessories section of the RDC store.
