Zacuto’s 15mm Rods

Iris rods are an absolutely essential part of any successful camera stabilization kit. Without Iris rods, you won’t be able to mount accessories like follow focuses or matte boxes to your camera. Zacuto offers an extensive array of 15mm rods and extension rods that are perfect for any camera rig. All Zacuto rods are the standard 15mm in diameter and ½” 13 threaded on each end. Our rods are also extendable so you can quickly reconfigure your rig if you need to add or take away rod length when switching out lenses of different sizes.

1” Female/No Tap

1” Male/Female Rod
