The C300 Striker is a step up from the C300 Target Shooter. It is designed for lightweight, run’n’gun shooting stabilization. It is super light and easy to handle. The C300 Striker rig features the EOS C300 Gorilla Baseplate which attaches to your camera using 3/8” 16 and ¼” 20 screws. It is compatible with the Scarlet and Epic cameras. The Gorilla Baseplate also features a set of 15mm lightweight threaded holes in the front of the baseplate. This allows users to mount a follow focus, lens support or other accessories in front of the camera. The rod to lens height is not standard, so it is not compatible with a matte box unless you have a height adjustable matte box*.
The Gorilla Baseplate has a 15mm hole in the bottom which allows you to attach the main vertical rod for the Striker Rig. The rig can be freed from the Gorilla Baseplate by flipping the red lever. A tripod plate can be installed on the Gorilla Baseplate for quickly moving from handheld to tripod. The C300 Striker Rig includes the Zacuto Gunstock, just like the C300 Target Shooter and expands upon that by adding a Zgrip handgrip. The handgrip gives you an extra point of contact. Simply brace the Gunstock against your shoulder, hold one hand on the handle and the other on your lens and you are ready to shoot! This kit has minimal set up time and is very light and easy to use. This rig works best when using the eyepiece on the C300 camera.
* NOTE: The C300 Gorilla Baseplate has a non-standard rod to lens height, only some adjustable matte boxes will work. The standard is 85mm. The lens of the Scarlet/Epic to center of 15mm rods on the Gorilla Baseplate is 106mm. The lens of the C300 to center of 15mm rods is 88mm. All lightweight spaced, rod mounted follow focuses should be compatible.
