Next-Generation Recoil. This line of Zacuto rigs is designed for optimal balance and comfort when shoulder mounted or on a tripod. 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 Universal Baseplate. This universal baseplate with integrated shoulder mount pad accepts just about any camera. There’s an adjustable rod mount on the front of the VCT baseplate that holds the included 6.5-inch rods. As its name suggests, the baseplate features a V-wedge tripod connector for using the Sony VCT-14 Quick-Release Tripod Adapter but also has 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threading for attaching standard tripod plates.
FS5 Top Plate. The FS5 Top Plate adds additional mounting screw holes and a 15mm rod lock with a 3-inch rod for mounting the FS5 LCD, while still being designed to fit around the FS5’s existing top handle.
FS5 Handgrip Relocator. The FS5 Recoil sports a fully articulated grip relocator, which features a single 15mm rod. A Zacuto Zwivel mount lets you put the grip in an array of different angles and positions to reduce hand and wrist fatigue.
FS5 Z-Finder. The FS5 doesn’t include a loupe for its LCD, so 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. The new 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.
