The universal camera shoulder rig solution for all cameras
The core of the Next Generation Recoil Rigs is the VCT Pro baseplate. Zacuto’s reinvented VCT style baseplate is universal for all cameras from a tiny mirrorless to a camera the size of an ALEXA and everything in between. 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.
Here’s how it works:
We’ve broken the camera rig into five sections— base, top, back, front and viewfinder.
Our custom top plates for cameras bolt directly to the camera frame providing a wide array of accessory attachment points. All these options either include or enable you to attach a Top Handle, like our Tactical Handle which is common in all kits and an essential connector point.
ViewfinderA crucial element for any shoulder rig is a viewfinder. We’ve got options with our Gratical Eye EVF, Kameleon Pro and our signature Z-Finders for a full array of cameras. The Axis Mini EVF mount attaches to the Tactical Handle and will mount every EVF on the market via either side mounted rosette or ¼” 20 on the bottom or top of your EVF. The Axis can be adjusted to any position in a 360-degree space.
BackThe back of the VCT has quick release ports for lightweight spaced 15mm rods to mount power accessories like batteries, recorders, wireless units and more via our Zwiss Plate.
FrontAt the front of the rig are two important sections: focus control and camera control. Add our Z-drive follow focus with Tornado focusing handgrip. Perfect for a shoulder mounted rig and also compatible for tripod use.
