Zacuto's Stinger Shoulder-Mounted Rig for Blackmagic Camera is a blank canvas inline shoulder-mounted kit that's designed to be used with an offset electronic viewfinder or monitor, and is ideal for long shoots, and for holding lots of accessories.
A mini baseplate with up-and-down plus side-to-side movement allows you to center your lens when using a matte box or follow focus. The included Zgrips V3 Short has 4.5" rods to let you keep your arms pulled in close for comfort and better stability. The Zgrips are articulated and can pivot as well as swing back and forth from the point where the handles' rods meet in the center. The Zgrips also quick-release away for convenience when putting the rig on a tripod or in storage.
Behind the baseplate is the included shoulder pad and the Horizontal Zwiss Plate (cheeseplate), which can accept a V-mount or 3-stud/gold mount battery plate and two wireless plates (not included). The rig also includes a Blackmagic Top Handle which is ideal for taking the rig on and off your shoulder and for low-mode shooting. The use of a Zacuto EVF with a Blackmagic HD-SDI to HDMI convertor is recommended.
