The Zacuto Recoil Lite V2 is a shoulder rig compatible with the Canon C100/C300/C500, Red Epic & Scarlet cameras. It features the Gorilla Baseplate with two 7" Male threaded rods and a QR shoulder pad. This system allows you to quickly and easily move from shoulder rig configuration to tripod-mounted camera and back again. The baseplate accepts two threaded 15mm support rods (included) and features a vertical 15mm rod clamp built into the baseplate that allows you to attach an available 15mm rod for mounting accessories to the plate.
The shoulder pad features a curved design, and the Viscoelastic cushion protects your shoulder from the weight of the camera. It also features a QR design that allows you to easily slide the camera forward and back on the shoulder pad to get the balance how you like it.
Please note Zacuto advises that the Gorilla Baseplate does not provide standard height between the rods and lens center, and this requires you to use a mattebox with adjustable height or a height adapter when using it with the Canon C100/C300/C500 or Red Epic/Scarlet cameras, although most rod-mounted follow focus units should be compatible. Zacuto also recommends an available EVF or external monitor be used with this system.

QR Shoulder Pad
The Zacuto QR Shoulder Pad is shaped to fit comfortably on your shoulder, providing a quick release (QR) camera-mounted pad to cushion your shoulder from the camera. The gel pad cushion is made from Akton Polymer, which absorbs shock and vibration and retains its properties in temperature extremes far exceeding what you or I could tolerate.
The included QR plate attaches to a camera or baseplate, and you slide the plate into the QR clamp on the shoulder pad. This allows you to easily adjust the camera's position on the shoulder pad for balance and comfort. The QR system also allows you to quickly remove the shoulder pad and mount the camera to a tripod with a compatible QR mechanism.
