The Zgrip Family

It’s time to get a grip on things.  Zacuto specializes in video camera stabilization accessories and handgrips are an integral part of rigs that are stable, comfortable, and user-friendly.  Many of our kits are developed with certain handgrips in mind but of course you can always mix and match to get the right grip for your shooting style and camera.  Each one of our handgrip configurations is designed to be flexible and adjustable to the user’s needs.  No matter what kind of camera rig you have set up, Zacuto has a handgrip solution for any of your handheld shooting needs.

The NEW Zgrip Triggers

zgrip triggersIntroducing our most adjustable grip ever! Single-handed 360° rotation with the simple press of a trigger. Flip it down for a low, rock-solid handgrip. Raise it up for more of an Aaton style position. Or quickly flip it all the way up to set your camera flat on the ground or for storing in a case.

Attaches to a standard M6 rosette – like the one on the side of our VCT Pro Baseplate. Models for Canon C-Series, Sony FS7 and FS7 II, rosette based grips, and a standard grip.

The Universal ZGrip Z-Mount Zwivel

zgrip_zwivel2The Zgrip Z-mount Zwivel is an articulating handgrip that comes with a 4.5 inch rod and a Z-Mount Zwivel. This accessory easily mounts to any 15mm rod with a quick-release Zwivel mount. The Zwivel allows the shooter to change the angle between the rod attached to the Zgrip and the rod attached to the camera rig.  The red lever on the Zwivel controls both of its 15mm holes. If you want to change the angle of the rods, simply loosen the lever and the internal spring will separate the two parts allowing you to adjust the Zwivel to your desired angle.

Camera Grip Relocators

Many modern cameras incorporate a removable grip that attaches to the camera via a cable and incorporate various camera functions. Our Grip Relocators for the Canon Cinema EOS line place the camera grip as a front handgrip for comfort, accessibility, and balance. It really is the best of both worlds. Our Next Generation Recoil rigs for the Canon C100, C100 Mark II, C300, C300 Mark II, and C500 all incorporate a Zgrip Relocator.

We also offer a Rosette Minimount which slides onto a set of 15mm lightweight spaced rods to give you an Arri M6 rosette on either side of the rods. You can use these rosettes to mount a number of accessories, including the removable handgrip for the Sony PXW-FS7.
