Zamerican Z-Rail Large Arm


The Zamerican Z-Rail Arm is a 12” articulating arm that has two Z-Rail clamps on either end. Install the included Mini Z-Rail on your 1/4 20” devices- monitor, light, recorder etc and slide onto the arm. Slide the other end of the arm onto your camera rig with Z-Rail.

No more screwing and unscrewing and no more coming loose. Our Zacuto quick release red levers make setup and breakdown as well as quick adjustments on set a breeze. The Mini Z-Rail has a ledge that prevents twisting.

Our arms are made with chrome balls for silk movement, aluminum ends for rust reduction and stainless steel to increase strength and reduce bulk. The central red knob controls the central pivot point and the ball joints on either end of the arm.

Please note: The arm includes one piece of mini Z-Rail.  We have other Z-Rail available to purchase. The arm also works with NATO, SWAT, RED, PICATINNY, and WOODEN CAMERA rails.

Miss the old one!

There used to be a medium arm that was the perfect size. GONE! This is WAY too big and the small one is too small. Sounds like a story we grew up with. Sorry

Ultimate 3rd Hand on every Set

The Zamerican Arm is incredibly well manufactured, always rock-steady and the ultimate weapon for all „more individual“, but even all common mounting options. Honestly - I was pretty much spoiled by using Manfrotto arms already. They’re really good but the Zacuto Arm (as an add on to one of Zacutos Masterpieces - in this case the ACT Recoil Rig) - is even more brillant! Due to Z-Rail mounts on both ends it easily attaches e.g. to the cage’s side or the Zacuto Tactical Handle without any twists or turns. You set it up high/low or simply anywhere within the reach of the arm and it stays there. No client or assistant will ever be able to ruin your setup by pointing to hard to your monitor :-) - it’s simpler to carry your whole rig on the arm. No kidding - I’m using the Zamerican Arm primarily with a pretty heavy Blackmagicdesign 7“ 12G Monitor (got myself a second Mini Z-Rail Mount to be able to mount the Zamerican at the top and at the bottom of the monitor, which gives me even more flexibility) together with my beloved Zacuto BMPCC ACT Recoil Rig. In many situations my „old“ Manfrotto Arm really just slipped away due to gravity or improper (3rd party) handling. The Zamerican Arm solves this problem perfectly. Besides it’s even a little bit more comfortable to adjust - the perfectly designed, ergonomical center screw acts on the middle a little bit earlier than on the ends - so adjusting it is somewhat easier too - compared to the competition. Conclusion: one more professional Zacuto masterpiece that makes your every day production live so much easier and your rig much more reliable!!! Operation is silky smooth and even the ratio between weight and stability couldn’t be any better!
