The Zacuto Double Barrel is a handheld, shoulder mounted system that uses Zacuto’s DSLR baseplate. It offers a sturdy support system that’s ideal for serious video shooters. While it’s designed as a shoulder mount system, the baseplate can be attached to your tripod speed plate using the industry standard tripod plate screws, two 1/4-20” and one 3/8-16”.
The Double Barrel utilizes a 7 pound counterweight for a perfectly balanced rig, and the shoulder mount system can be set-up for operation on the left or right shoulder. This rig differs from the Zacuto Fast Draw because it includes a double handgrip system, as well as a handle for shooting low angle shots and a Z-Finder Pro 2.5×.
The Z-Finder Pro 2.5x mounting frame attaches to the camera quick release plate using a pair of thumb screws. Our kit includes the 3.2" Z-Finder Mounting Frame, making it compatible with DSLRs that feature a 3.2" LCD (Canon 5D Mark III, Nikon D800), as well as those with a slightly smaller 3.0" LCD (Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 7D.)
The Double Barrel includes Zacuto’s Z-Focus, a high quality follow focus that can be used with any 0.8 pitch follow focus gears (3 gears are included). The Z-Focus also features a standard accessory port that’s compatible with many different types of follow focus whips (optional, not included).
All of the shoulder mount accessories can be removed quickly giving you the ability to use a stripped down rig on a tripod, slider or crane.
Please Note: The mounting frame included is not compatible with taller DSLR bodies or standard-size DSLR bodies with battery grips attached. We do rent separately the Zacuto 3.2in Z-Finder Frame Mount for Tall DSLRs for the Canon EOS 1DC / 1DX and Nikon D4, as well as the Zacuto GH3 Z-Finder Frame Mount Kit for the Panasonic GH3
