Next-Generation Recoil. This line of Zacuto rigs is designed for optimal balance and comfort when shoulder- or tripod-mounted. They allow you to adjust the balance point to directly over your shoulder, with mounting points for focus and monitoring. You can also move the camera controls forward for easy access.
VCT Pro Baseplate. Improving on the previous-generation VCT Universal Baseplate, the Pro features a built-in ergonomic gel shoulder pad, a 10-inch sliding track with a spring-loaded lever for simplified balancing and quick camera removal, a VCT14-compatible V-wedge, and extra space for accessories up front with height-adjustment capability. We include (2) 6.5-inch rods with the rental. If you need quick-release tripod capability, we strongly recommend also renting the Zacuto VCT Tripod Plate.
Rosette Zgrip Trigger. This handgrip incorporates Zacuto’s Zgrip relocator, which positions the camera at a comfortable angle while giving you one-handed 360° rotation with the press of a trigger. You can flip it down for a low handgrip, raise it to an Aaton-esque position, or flip it all the way up to set the camera flat on the ground or in a case. This trigger attaches to your camera or rig via an industry-standard M6 rosette, and there’s another M6 rosette at the other end of the grip.
FS5 Top Plate. The top plate securely fits around the camera’s top handle. It gives you a side-facing 15mm rod lock and multiple 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 accessory attachment points.
FS5 Z-Finder. Since the FS5 doesn’t include a loupe for its LCD, Zacuto has created the FS5 Z-Finder to give you a better view. The Z-Finder features high-quality optics and a diopter to keep everything sharp and in focus right in front of your eyes. Its 2x magnification provides a solid field of view while maintaining a compact size. A flip-up design allows you to go back and forth between viewfinder and LCD in a snap, while the locking mount attaches the Z-Finder solidly to the top plate and helps to limit slipping and loosening.
