The Cine EVF Recoil rig is compatible with the RED One, Epic, Epic Dragon, Scarlet, Blackmagic Cinema Camera, AJA Cion, Canon EOS C700, and Kinefinity Kinemax 6K. The universal fit and adjustability of our VCT Pro baseplate and other accessories means this one rig easily fits all of these cameras.

RED, Blackmagic, AJA, and ARRI are known for their professional, high-quality cameras. Pioneers of 4K for unrivaled detail and resolution, these camera companies push the boundaries with features like ARRI’s ALEV III Super-35 sized CMOS Bayer-pattern sensor and the 6K RED Epic Dragon sensor.

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 approximately is 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.

Cameras with built in shoulder pads, like the AJA Cion and ARRI ALEXA, require you to essentially balance the entire camera weight in your hands. This seriously limits the length of time you can work shoulder-mounted. Correctly balance these cameras by adding the VCT Pro baseplate under the foot of the camera. You’ll immediately notice how much lighter the rig feels.
