Gear & Tools
The Canon Cinema series cameras have been taking the world by storm! Steve and Jens saw the potential of these lower budget, high performance cameras early on and quickly began making baseplates and rigs for their unique size and shape.
Creating a Z-Finder for the removable, larger LCD of the Canon C300 and C500 was a new challenge for Zacuto. Always ready for a challenge, Steve and Jens set to work to create a lightweight, accessible, reasonably priced unit that could stand up to Zacuto’s high standards.
In the News
The Same But Different project opens the viewer’s eyes and mind to the everyday lives of children with differences. Meet David Barnes, the EMMY award winning filmmaker who was inspired to tell these unique stories.
We at Zacuto were instantly hooked on David’s stunning story telling style and love that these shorts were shot on a DSLR – a Canon 5DM2 and 7D. We decided to turn the tables and find out more about his inspiration and journey.
Same But Different
Tips & Tricks
I spent some time getting to know these passionate young filmmakers. Here are 9 things I learned from their beautiful, genuine musings. Visit my blog to read the full interviews.
I shoot in unforgiving environments. Some shots require that I lean out into the open air, hundreds of feet above the ground with a rope as my only connection to the world.
Other shots force me to climb early in the morning with tightly gripped ice axes, trying to get the perfect frame as the dawn hovers over frozen mountains. My equipment must be tough, reliable, small, light, fast to setup, and easy to use. Enter the Zacuto Enforcer.
New In Rentals
I direct and shoot all over the world, and Zacuto gear is always in tow. Whether it’s hanging out of a helicopter, discovering abandoned towns, hiking through snow-covered mountains or shooting live music on tour – I need gear that is reliable in any situation or climate.
