ultraBase™ BMCC is the ultimate in support for your new Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera. This is a baseplate-only version of the ultraCage Black Professional Series for BMCC that gives you the same professional-level support, but without the cage. The ultraBase delivers unparalleled support and stability so your camera can be used as a professional-level cinema camera.
Like the ultraCage, the ultraBase gives your Blackmagic Cinema Camera a cinema-style baseplate for adding 15mm iris rods, the backbone for attaching accessories such as mattebox and follow focus. The ultraBase’s ergonomic design hugs the camera body but still provides your camera with much needed ventilation routes, and the operator access to the buttons and ports.
Want the full cage? The ultraBase can be upgraded to ultraCage Black Professional Series BMCC at any time.
