Gear & Tools
Whether it’s winter in Wisconsin with whiteouts and woolens or summer in Sydney with sunscreen and shades, we’re all in luck for the next few months because it’s time for some Zacuto product specials!
2013 has truly been a banner year at Zacuto with more than thirty individual accessories and rigs having been released since January.

Tips & Tricks
As I mentioned in part 1 of this guide, Ultimate Guide To Getting Your Start In Stock Video – shooting stock footage is a long-term investment of time, energy, and resources.
If you are in it for the quick buck, you will be disappointed. But there are two key tips that are crucial to help you consistently drive more sales of your footage. If you take these tips to heart, and keep at it, then over the long haul you will see increased sales and traffic to your footage.
Ever since I first saw the Recoil design at NAB I’ve wanted to give it a try. I spent the last month shooting various things with the Recoil and has quickly become my favorite rig Zacuto offers for full day shooting projects.
In my opinion it’s not a run and gun rig. It’s a rig I want to use when I have to keep the camera on my shoulder for long periods of time. It’s extremely comfortable thanks to the padded quick release shoulder pad and the new Z-drive with Tornado Grip.
New In Rentals
Zacuto Rentals has done it yet again! We have improved our inventory with some great new upgrades and equipment! Some new rentals that you can now take advantage of now include the Sony PMW-FS700, the PL-mount version of the Canon C300, Arri’s new L7-C LED lights, and two upgrades to the Sony’s PMW-F3 camera: the S-log firmware update, as well as Canon and Nikon lens mount adapters.
The Sony PMW-F3 camera has a new update, the F3 S-Log, which is an optional camera software upgrade that allows the Sony F3 to record footage in the fully uncompressed 4:4:4 color space and allows users to turn on the S-Log feature in the profile menu. With the upgrade you can make adjustments to other camera settings such as black level, color, and white balance. Without recording at 4:4:4, “S-Log” adds a full two stops of dynamic range to the F3, allowing the camera to perform better in low-light situations.
