The Sony FS5 Recoil Rig

The Sony FS5 Recoil shoulder-mounted rig includes our VCT Pro baseplate, the FS5 Grip Relocator for the Sony FS5 handgrip,a 13.5" LANC extension cable, the FS5 Top Plate, and our Axis Mini for Sony FS5 which can be used with either the Gratical HD, Eye or the Sony LCD monitor with Zacuto Z-Finder.

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.
  • Rosette Grip Relocator - fully articulating Grip relocator 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. Relocates the Sony grip to your hand for recoil shooting. Includes a 13.5" LANC extension cable.
  • FS5 Top Plate - Designed to fit around the Sony top handle, this Top Plate gives you a side facing 15mm rod lock and multiple mounting screw holes.
  • Axis Mini for Sony FS5 - Attaches to the 15mm rod port on the Sony FS5 Top Plate to mount either a rosette mounted EVF like the Gratical HD or the Sony monitor itself. Adjustable positioning for shoulder mounted shooting or tripod shooting.

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.
