Overview
  • 1Description

The Zacuto Scorpion DSLR Shoulder Mount Z-DSP is designed to make shoulder-mounted DSLR video shooting easy and comfortable. It features a curved, form-fitting silicone gel shoulder pad that connects to the back of the baseplate with two 2" M/F rods. The rods screw into the back of the included DSLR baseplate and connect to the front of the shoulder pad via 15mm quick release ports, making it fast and easy to switch from shoulder mount to tripod and back.

There's also a ball joint built into the front of the shoulder pad that allows the entire shoulder pad assembly to articulate in multiple directions so you can angle it to fit your body exactly the way you want it, for maximum comfort. The shoulder assembly can be used on the left or right shoulder, and a top carry handle makes it easy to place on your shoulder and just as easy to remove it. The handle is also useful for shooting at low angles.

The front has two levels for rods: the top level is for mounting follow focuses, matte boxes, zoom/focus motors and lens support; the bottom level rods are used mostly for lens support and single or double hand grips. Rear rod holes are for rod extensions to support battery power, wireless plates, monitors and other accessories that you may need when using a tripod. Rod holes on the left and right are for mounting a gunstock and the offset shoulder pad and counterweight for hand-held use. You can also mount a top handle, monitor arms and the cage (which would use both sides at the same time).

A quick-release plate allows you to instantly remove your camera for standalone use--the bottom plate mounts to your tripod using included 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 screws. This DSLR baseplate makes it not only possible, but fairly easy, to go from shoulder-mounted to handheld to locked down on legs while shooting video with your DSLR--without breaking a sweat.
