Mount External Batteries
The microBalance Plus is ideal for mounting battery plates for external brick style batteries. By attaching the battery plate to the cheese plate the at the rear of a rig, it can be used as an additional counterbalance such as a shouldermount rig like the Field Cinema Bundle or eyeSpy Deluxe.
- The microBalance Plus can be moved along the rails for front-back balancing, and also includes a unique adjustment to help balance rigs left-right when using off-center accessories such as monitor, EVF, or follow focus.
- The cheeseplate includes hole patterns for mounting a battery plate directly to the cheeseplate.
- Hole patterns include Anton Bauer, Sony v-mount style (including battery plates from Switronix and IDX), and PAGxternal recorders, audio receivers, and anything else that can be mounted with ¼” 20 or 3/8” 16 taps.
- 1x rod clamp
- 1x left-right adjustment block
- 1x cheese plate
For what can I use the microBalance Plus?
The microBalance Plus is ideal for mounting batteries and accessories to a vertical cheeseplate for counterbalance or to fit a particular rig configuration.
Can I mount counterbalance weights on it?
The microBalance Plus allows older style microBalance counterbalance weights to be mounted using screws. It is not designed for use with the microBalance QR counterbalance weights.
If I want to mount both counterbalance and an external battery, what should I get?
For both Redrock counterbalance and external batteries together, consider the microBalance QR system, which includes quick release plates that include battery plate hole patterns.
