Zacuto’s Indie Recoil shoulder rig is ideal for DSLRs and small camcorders, but it will work with all cameras from the smallest mirrorless to a camera the size of an Alexa.
Whether your DSLR is your main or back up camera, if you shoot run’n’gun style or in a studio, or you prefer Canon, Nikon, Sony, or Panasonic, there’s no denying these small cameras pack a big punch. The shallow depth of field, high resolution, full frame and in some cases 4K make them either your go to camera or companion piece to a full size cinema camera.
Next Generation Recoil rigs are designed for optimal balance and comfort when shoulder mounted or on a tripod. With lenses and cameras being similar weights, the balance point is approximately where the lens meets the camera body. In a Recoil rig, the balance point needs to be directly over your shoulder which puts the camera behind you. This requires focus, monitoring and camera controls to be relocated forward, creating a lighter and shorter rig. Next Generation Recoil rigs are compatible with all cameras from a tiny mirrorless to a camera the size of an ALEXA.
The Indie Recoil rig is compatible with all cameras including mirrorless and DSLRs. It includes the VCT Pro baseplate which will help you balance your rig and is universal for all cameras. The QR Riser raise your DSLR to a height compatible with matte boxes. It also allows you to quick release your camera, mount it to a tripod in seconds. The Zgrip Zwivel fully articulating handgrip gets your hand in the most comfortable position. There’s plenty of space to add a Z-Drive follow focus and Tornado grip (not included.)
Wrapping around the side and top of the rig is the Halfcage Rail and Recoil Handle. This solid, adjustable, universal cage structure offers a wide array of accessory mounts like ¼ 20 holes, Z-rail and a rod lock for mounting Zacuto Zamerican arms and or rod based accessories.
