The Cine Mini Recoil Rig

The Cine Mini EVF Recoil rig is compatible with cameras that already come with a top handle with ¼ 20 screw holes, like the Panasonic DVX200, Ursa Mini, AJA Cion, and more. It places your camera comfortably up on your shoulder and includes a handgrip and 15mm rod lock to attach to the top handle.

This is a Next Generation Recoil rig designed for optimal balance and comfort when shoulder mounted or on a tripod. With lenses and cameras being similar weights, the balance point 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.

Kit Includes:

  • VCT Pro – this baseplate has a sliding top plate for quickly removing the camera from the rig or fast len changes, a built-in, curved shoulder pad, a v-wedge tripod connector (with ¼” 20 and 3/8" 16 screw option). It has removable and extendable 6.5” iris rods and rows of ¼” 20 screw holes along the sides for accessories. It has quick release 15mm rod parts in the rear. The recessed rod mount offers maximum accessory capable space under your camera lens.
  • Zgrip Z-Mount Zwivel – fully articulating handgrip with rod cap. Attaches to a single 15mm rod with a Zwivel mount that can be set at multiple different angles for comfort and ease of use.
  • 3” Z-Rail - This Z-Rail screws to the top handle of your camera, allowing you to attach a 15mm rod lock and other Z-Rail accessories.
  • Z-Rail Rod Lock 90 Degree - This mount gives you a side facing 15mm rod port to mount accessories such as the Axis Mini.The Z-Rail attaches via two 1/4 20 screws, so if your camera top handle has 3/8 16 screw holes, you may need adapters.
  • PLEASE NOTE: This rig requires the addition of a monitor or Zacuto EVF.

    The Gratical Eye

    The Gratical Eye SDI electronic viewfinder is the smallest and lightest of Zacuto's Micro OLED EVFs. It fits in the palm of your hand and weighs only 14oz. This is an ideal SDI EVF solution for filmmakers using professional cameras and external batteries. The Gratical Eye has a 2 pin Lemo power jack and a single SDI input. A 75Wh battery can power the Gratical Eye for 14 hours! Mount the Gratical Eye to your Next Generation Recoil via the 1/4 20 rosette on the side with an Axis Mini. You can also mount the Gratical Eye with the ¼ 20 screw hole in the bottom.

    The Gratical Eye Micro OLED electronic viewfinder uses an extremely powerful FPGA dual core processor and the latest Micro-OLED displays to provide a hugely expanded contrast range. Zacuto's Micro-OLED display supports high pixel density with unparalleled resolution, true blacks, gamma and contrast range. The Gratical Eye has 5.4 million pixels on a 0.61” diagonal screen no bigger than the size of your thumbnail.

    You’ll be amazed with how sharp the image is. The internal field of view is just the right size so that the image is large, but not so that your eye has to roam to see the entire image at once. It features a built in -1 to +4 diopter range and Zacuto’s patented essential anti-fog coating formula. It never fogs in humidity or freezing temperatures. An auto-closing eyecup door prevents sunburn display automatically without any action by the operator.

    Along with the full suite of Zacuto EVF firmware (full scopes, LUTs, multi level peaking, and more), the Gratical Eye has two unique features - an external tally light and a proximity screen saver. After 1 hour of being idle, the Eye will go into auto shutoff mode, saving you power and time.
