Accessorizing Your Zacuto Rig or Building Your Own Rig

We know that every shoot, every camera, and every shooter is different. But there is more that unites us than divides us! That’s why we concentrate on as few camera specific products and as many universal products as we can. The base to lens height on a C300 may mean it requires a specific baseplate so a follow focus and matte box can align properly, but that doesn’t mean it can’t share that follow focus with a DSLR, a Sony PMW-EX3 or even an ENG camera.

We pride ourselves on keeping our equipment as universal as possible so your equipment won’t become obsolete as you move from camera to camera. As long as you have the correct baseplate for your camera, you can feel secure that other Zacuto accessories will be able to move over with little to no issue. This means you can start with a blank canvas suggested rig and add whatever mixture of accessories work for you.

With that in mind, head on over to the Zacuto store and check out our different product categories:
