The UB3 Recoil Shoulder Rig is a stable rig for various flat-bottom video cameras. It includes a universal baseplate, a QR shoulder pad, and the Recoil handgrip kit - a unique mechanical handgrip follow focus set up. At the center of this rig is the Z-UB3 universal baseplate with 12" rods. The low-profile baseplate allows for flat-bottom cameras.

Directly underneath the baseplate is the Zacuto QR shoulder pad, which puts the camera directly on top of your shoulder for balance and comfort. It sets the camera in the correct position so your eye can comfortably reach the Sony viewfinder.

Instead of traditional handgrips, this rig includes our Recoil handgrip kit. The kit is comprised of a Zgrip Z-Mount Zwivel handle, a Z-Drive follow focus and the Zacuto Tornado. The Zgrip 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 Zacuto Z-Drive is a unique, universal follow focus, perfect for a Recoil rig set up. It curves away from the operator at a 60 degree angle creating space and distance from the lens for comfortable use when the camera is on your shoulder. 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. With this unique system, you can keep your hands in the same place during handheld camera operation. Being able to focus with your handgrip keeps the camera rock solid as opposed to releasing your left hand to grab a traditional follow focus or the lens which makes your camera rock.
