The Zacuto Sony EVF Recoil for Sony F5 and F55 cameras, includes the VCT Universal baseplate and our unique cheese plate style Top Plate.
The F5 and F55 are Sony’s top of the line, professional cinema cameras. These cameras are packed with features like 4K and 2K RAW, Super 35mm sensors, plus a built in global shutter.
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 mirrorless to a camera the size of an ALEXA.
The Sony EVF Recoil includes the VCT Universal Baseplate. Inspired by traditional ENG cameras, it truly is the last baseplate you’ll ever need. A Zgrip Zwivel fully articulating handgrip rounds out the front of the rig. There’s plenty of space to add a Z-Drive follow focus and Tornado grip (not included.)
Our unique F5, F55 Top Plate with the Recoil Handle attaches to your camera frame for infinite mounting options. It provides multiple mounting screw holes, two quick release 15mm rod lock ports for Zacuto Zamerican arms, front rods and and Recoil Handle.
