Make your DSLR, mirrorless, or small video camera much more ergonomic and steady with this Docu Recoil Rig from Zacuto. Packing together the VCT Universal Baseplate with 15mm rods, a QR Riser, and Zgrip Zwivel Hand Grip, shooters will be up and running in no time with a comfortable handheld solution. The VCT Universal is the core of the rig with a built-in curved shoulder pad, a V-wedge tripod connector, and removable 15mm rods. It also has a variety of mounting points for additional accessories. The QR Riser makes things simpler by raising your camera to a height that is more compatible with matte boxes, and it provides a quick release. Finally, the Zgrip Zwivel gives you tactile control over the setup, and the handgrip is fully articulating for comfort. All of these products are made in the USA.
VCT Universal Baseplate
Next Generation Recoil
The Zacuto VCT Universal Baseplate features a built-in, curved shoulder pad, a V-lock plate, removable, 15mm LWS spring-loaded rod clamps with 1.6" of vertical adjustment, and rows of 1/4"-20 mounting threads along the sides for accessories. The contoured and cushioned shoulder cavity allows your camera to sit only three quarters of an inch above your shoulder, and you can mount the VCT Universal Baseplate to a tripod with a VCT14 QR plate. The shoulder pad is made of soft-gel polymer and a two-piece shoulder pad accounts for the natural slope in shoulder, and is designed to balance your camera on the operator's right shoulder only. The V-lock tripod connector also incorporates 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads for direct connection to your tripod quick release plate.
The spring-loaded rod clamps are set far back in the baseplate. This allows you to position your camera further back on the plate, thus keeping the balance point of your rig directly over your shoulder. The sliding track of the rod riser offers 0.87" of vertical adjustment. The riser can also be flipped to offer up to 1.57" of adjustment from the lowest point. The shoulder pad is set as far forward on the plate as possible in order to maximize your accessory capable rod area and help with balance. This baseplate is designed to provide balance and comfort for every camera.

Zgrip Z-Mount Zwivel Handgrip
The Zgrip Z-Mount Zwivel Handgrip from Zacuto comes with a black 4.5" rod and a Z-Mount Zwivel. It easily mounts on any 15mm rod with the quick release handgrip. The Zwivel allows you to change the angle between two 15mm rods by loosening the single lever that controls both the 15mm holes. Adjustments to achieve the desired angle are possible by the separation between the parts induced by the integrated spring.
