The Matthews Lazy Suzy Swivel Platform Mitchell Base is a heavy-duty articulated double-swivel camera positioning platform that supports up to seventy pounds, and allows you to place the camera anywhere within a 25″ diameter circle without having to reposition an available dolly, tripod, or car mount rig. This can be a great time saver when making minor camera position adjustments when working with heavy equipment. It can be extremely useful when mounting your camera to a car mount when there is limited room for position adjustment.

The camera can be secured firmly for traveling shots, process trailers, or lock-off shots with incorporated 1/4″ and 3/8″ tapped holes. The included two-inch riser posts allow you to position the camera throughout the full 360° horizontal range of motion The Lazy Suzy is built to be durable, and is made from black hard anodized aluminum, and stainless steel. The Lazy Suzy is weather proof from minus 40 to 180°F.
