Zacuto Control Grip

Zoom, Iris, & Camera Control at your fingertips

The Control Grip was inspired by Zacuto’s Next Generation Recoil shoulder mounted rigs that place your camera over or behind your shoulder for perfect balance and comfort. This more traditional style of rig pushes focus, monitoring, and camera control further forward, creating a lighter and shorter rig. The Control Grip is a comfortable handgrip that offers the operator the ability to start and stop the camera, has three programmable camera function buttons, and a joystick for full menu operation on most cameras. Add the optional Z-Motor for a rocker servo zoom and iris control that uses only two cables, no control boxes, and has a self powered battery that lasts all day. The Control Grip is the most user friendly camera/lens control system on the market.

Next Generation Recoil Rigs: infinite possibilities


Next Generation Recoil rigs are designed for optimal balance and comfort when filming shoulder mounted or on a tripod. Recoil rigs put the camera behind you when shoulder mounted and the Control Grip gives you camera controls in the palm of your hand.

Next Generation Recoil rigs allow every camera on the market, from a tiny mirrorless to a camera the size of an ALEXA to use one single mounting platform—the Zacuto VCT Universal baseplate.
