For purchasing information

The shoulder-mounted EVA1 Z-Finder Recoil Pro includes the Zacuto VCT Pro baseplate and the Zacuto EVA1 Top plate. The EVA1 Top Plate has a built in Z-Rail perfect for adding the Zacuto Top Handle or Recoil Handle. Or if desired, you can reattach your Panasonic camera Handle to the plate. The EVA1 Zgrip Trigger positions camera control at a comfortable, convenient handgrip. The Z-Rail Axis Mount connects the EVA1 Z-Finder to the rig via the rod mount. The Z-Finder for EVA1 wraps around the Panasonic LCD and locks into place for a secure connection.

This is a Zacuto 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.

Flip & Set Zgrip Triggers

Just like the classic Zacuto Next Gen Recoil Rigs, these rigs are designed for balance and comfort on long shooting days. The innovative flip-up Zgrip Trigger handgrips put the Next Gen Recoil Pro Rigs a cut above any other shoulder rig on the market.

These grips flip up, down, and extend with the flip of a trigger. Plus, Zacuto have included single-handed 360° rotation for comfort and anti-fatigue. They will make your workflow on shoots like documentaries, weddings, music videos, feature films, and more much easier and smoother.

VCT Pro Baseplate

With built-in ergonomic shoulder pad, 10" sliding track, extra space for accessories in front, VCT14-compatible V-wedge, red buttons and levers all around, and much more, this is the stylish VCT Pro Baseplate from Zacuto. Use it with all types of cameras, from DSLRs to larger models, like the Alexa.

A section of the baseplate extends out beyond the 15mm LWS rod adapter in front. With the rod adapter thus set back, you have additional space to mount accessories under the camera lens, allowing you to position the camera further back on the plate, keeping the balance point of your rig directly over your shoulder. (The rod adapter is vertically adjustable 1", and has to be in a raised position to allow for accessories to be mounted in the additional space. Also, a 1.8" riser for the rod adapter is optionally available for RED cameras by special order from Zacuto.) Also, on the bottom of the section that protrudes out is where the V-wedge is. There is also a 15mm LWS rod adapter on the rear.

The VCT Pro Baseplate features a 10" sliding track, providing the space to optimally adjust balance after every lens change. Moreover, the included red camera plate can be loosened by a spring-loaded lever instead of a screw, so you can make adjustments quickly and easily. To fully release and remove the plate (and camera), just press a red button on the side of the baseplate and slide the plate out. The rod ports also have spring-loaded levers.

An ARRI M6 rosette is available on the front for attaching accessories and grips, and there are also three 1/4"-20 threaded holes on the side providing additional mounting options. 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 tripod mount holes are available on the bottom to use instead of the V-wedge. The shoulder pad runs pretty much along the entire length as well as width of the baseplate, and is made of gel polymer. Two 6.5" 15mm rods are included. One 1/4"-20 and one 3/8"-16 screw are supplied for the camera plate. The VCT Pro Baseplate is made in the USA.
