The DSLR Recoil Rig from Zacuto includes a Mini DSLR Baseplate with 6.5" rods, a QR Shoulder Pad, and the Recoil Handgrip Kit - a mechanical handgrip follow focus set up. The Mini DSLR Baseplate attaches to your camera with a single 1/4" 20 screw and has one 1/4" 20 and one 3/8" 16 screw underneath for tripod attachment. The Mini DSLR Baseplate has two lightweight spaced threaded rod ports at the back of the unit, a 15mm female rod port (tightened with an Allen key) which can be found at the left side, and a 15mm rod port which can be found on the underside of the unit. It has a built in quick release for the camera which is released with a red quick release ratcheting lever. This kit comes with 6.5" rods to attach to the front of the baseplate.

Directly underneath the Mini DSLR Baseplate is a QR Shoulder Pad. The QR Shoulder Pad, designed for balance and comfort, puts the camera directly on top of your shoulder. The shoulder pad is a two part system that includes the shoulder pad itself and a separate dovetail plate that screws into the bottom of your camera or baseplate just like an ordinary tripod plate. It attaches, changes positions, and detaches from the dovetail plate with a quick release lever. The dovetail plate can act as a traditional tripod plate and snap directly into a tripod, monopod, slider or other standard piece of equipment with the Zacuto Tripod Adapter Plate (not included) or another quick release plate.

Instead of traditional handgrips, this rig includes a Recoil Handgrip Kit, which is comprised of a Z-grip Z-Mount Zwivel handgrip, a Z-Drive follow focus and the Zacuto Tornado grip. The Z-grip Z-Mount Zwivel is a complete single handgrip set up that slides and clamps onto a single 15mm rod. The rod attached to the handle is 4.5" long. The Z-Drive is a universal follow focus for a Recoil rig set up. It curves away from the operator at a 60° angle creating space and distance from the lens for comfortable use when the camera is on your shoulder. It comes with a fixed 1 3/4" diameter .8 pitch gear to connect to the lens. The Tornado attaches to the Z-Drive whip port and works in tandem with the Z-Drive to create a unique mechanical follow focus handgrip perfect for single operator shoulder mounted work.

The Mini DSLR Baseplate is only compatible with standard body DSLRs alone; it is not recommended for use when a battery grip is in place or on tall body cameras because the rods may not be able to get in the proper position for centering a matte box. For those cameras, use the standard DSLR Baseplate.

      Comments about Zacuto DSLR Recoil Rig:

      I originally shied away from Zacuto due to their prices being higher than others like the RedRock shoulder mount I went with prior.

      Zacuto's construction is strong and smarter. Their locking knobs are easier and not plastic and you know it's rock steady.

      This design is much better than to have your DSLR in front with weights in the back - I have no idea how this wasn't implemented sooner.

      I like how you can slide the rig forward or backward on the shoulder pad before locking to fit to your liking.

      The tornado grip is a welcome addition to change your focus instead of having a separate follow focus wheel wher you need to change your hand position.

      Zacuto's lifetime warranty doesn't hurt either.
