      Comments about Zacuto Z-ZENGL Zonitor ENG Large Kit:

      The arm is appears to be contructed with great build quality in mind, but one of the ball joints will come loose after a day or two of normal use. (tightening and then loosening the arm 20-30 times will do trigger this).

      I purchased one from here and one joint was already loose out of the box. I could tighten the knob all the way and still be able to push around the ball joint with my pinky finger.

      Zacuto with their seemingly great customer service, shipped me a new one, and it worked great for 2 days and then the same thing happened. Either they have a bad batch or their Zamercian arm has serious engineering flaws.

      It's particularly embarrasing when the monitor flops about in front of the client, and they have to HOLD it in order to see the image coming off camera.

      If Zacuto can't resolve this in a timely manner, I'll be moving to Ultralight arms. Shame, since they're supposed to be such a good brand. What's lifetime warranty mean if the products are no good?

      Almost perfect American Israeli arm

        Comments about Zacuto Z-ZENGL Zonitor ENG Large Kit:

        We bought the Zacuto Z-ZENGL Zonitor ENG Large Kit with the Zamerican large version and the Zicromount III's. It's used on a Panasonic 2/3 ENG broadcast camera to hold an Atomos Samurai Blade.

        The Arm is incredible. It's probably the best designed arm you can get for the price. The leverage you can get from the main adjustment knob makes tightening and loosing the arm quick and easy, and when tightened, the arm doesn't budge a millimeter. The finish is great and the aluminum machining is very high quality. Zacuto should probably lose the puffy Zacuto stickers in subsequent designs. Surely it only increases manufacturing time and cost and requires cutting into the arm cylinder.

        The week link in this kit is definitely the Zicromount III. Mounting the Zicromount III to your ENG camera's handle is less than satisfactory. All the stability gains you gain from the Zamerican, you lose with the Zicromount, as it easily rotates and moves with even a modest touch of the Zamerican arm. This was truly disappointing. If a purpose-built mount for an ENG arm was built to retain the 15mm rod of the Zamerican, this whole kit would truly be perfect. We may just have to manufacture one to get full use out of this kit.

        Because of the Zicromount's deficiency the relatively high price tag for this kit does not provide the value you would otherwise gain if it performed well for ENG purposes.

          Comments about Zacuto Z-ZENGL Zonitor ENG Large Kit:

          I am using the Z-Zengl Zonitor ENG Large Kit by having a monitor right with me on my camera.

          I saw people who have this product and everyone whom I asked about it loved it. I love how stable, and how flexible it is. I must say usually when I am able to see some cons with products but with it I don't really see any of it.
