Zacuto Recoil Rigs

HDSLRs and large-sensor video cameras have become today’s most popular cameras for shooting video. But, straight out of the box, they’re still notoriously uncomfortable to hold when shooting video for longer than a few minutes.

Typically, these devices offer a lackluster lens, provide only digital zoom, and perform poorly in dim light or an unsteady hand. Manual controls, touch screens, and GPS simply aren't included in the equipment. All this helps explain why cameras that record to tape or hard disks continue to be preferred by home video enthusiasts.
