The Kippertie Strata-PL is the first ever true bolt-on PL mount for RED V-Raptor. The Strata-PL is designed with top level users in mind. For fast moving professional environments with substantial camera builds. Tough enough to support any lens while never passing any stress to the friendly but light-duty RF mount.
Strata brings the expected rental-friendly design and bulletproof simplicity to V-Raptor. With optical baffles and flare traps for optimal performance, Strata is tailored with specific regard to the unique V-Raptor sensor and body.
The profile and aesthetic of the mount is matched to the camera body with no obstructions to other accessories. Multiple 1/4-20 mounting points are provided, and each side features a heavy duty 3/8-16 mount with standard anti-rotation sockets, ideal for handles or monitor mounts.
Mounting is by four captive 1/4-20 stainless steel screws direct to the V-Raptor front accessory mounting points. The RF mount is used only as a reference surface for position and backfocus, removing entirely the problems inherent to a sprung bayonet designed for small stills lenses.
Strata-PL is pre-shimmed for nominal backfocus, and supplied with further shims for professional adjustment. We use and recommend the Denz FDC-multi for precision measurement, and we expect that our diligent users will verify their installation prior to shooting.
