Take your mirrorless camera or DSLR and create a shoulder-mounted camera system with the Indie Recoil from Zacuto. It bundles together the VCT Universal Baseplate with a QR Riser, Zgrip Zwivel Handgrip, Halfcage Rail, and the Recoil Handle to create a whole system that just needs an optional EVF to complete.

The VCT Universal Baseplate is the core of the rig with a couple 15mm rods and a curved shoulder pad for comfort. This accepts the QR Riser to put your camera in the appropriate position and the Zgrip Zwivel Handgrip mounts to one of the 15mm rods for tactile control. Adding the Halfcage Rail this rig provides an adjustable cage structure for the top and side of your camera. It also comes with a 3" Z-Rail for mounting on the side of the baseplate. Finally, the Recoild Handle mounts to the top of the Halfcage Rail to complete the system and have a variety of mounting points, such as cold shoes and a 15mm rod port, in order to hold all of your accessories.

  • VCT Universal Baseplate

    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.

    Designed to work with virtually any camera
    Enables you to go from hand held/shoulder shooting to tripod shooting without changing mounting plates
    Attaches to any VCT14 QR tripod adapter system
    Vertically adjustable 15mm LWS rod clamps with spring-loaded locking levers
    Rear mounted screw thread sockets for 15mm rods following the Light Weight Rod Standard (LWS) of 60mm on-center distance between rods
    UPC: 414591860507
  • QR Riser

    The Zacuto QR Riser allows you to raise your camera to a matte box compatible height, while also providing quick-release functionality for the camera. It supports DSLRs and other cameras with low-lens positioning relative to the camera body (such as the Sony FS700).

  • 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.

    The Zwivel allows you to change the angle between two 15mm rods by loosening the single lever that controls both the 15mm holes.
    The Handgrip supports all 15mm rods with the quick release handgrip.
    The integrated spring separates the parts for you to achieve the desired angle between the rods.
  • Halfcage Rail for Zacuto VCT Universal Baseplate

    The Zacuto Halfcage Rail attaches to the Zacuto VCT Universal baseplate and creates a solid, universal cage structure around the side and top of your camera. It features a contoured wood side grip, and the built-in double-sided Z-Rail offers you the ability to add an optional top handle or Zacuto Coldshoe lock (not included). The side grip incorporates fifteen 1/4"-20 threaded accessory mounting points.

    An included 5" Z-Rail attaches along the side of the VCT Universal baseplate with two 1/4"-20 screws. The Halfcage Rail then attaches that 5" Z-rail via a spring-loaded quick-release. At its most compact height, the Halfcage Rail has a clearance of 5.5". Four Allen head screws enable you to adjust the height to a 9" clearance. The side grip incorporates a 15mm rod port for attaching accessories.

    The contoured wood handle is made of hand-tooled maple.
    You can adjust the clearance height from 5.5 to 9" to accommodate a variety of different cameras.
    The double-sided top Z-Rail allows you to use a Zacuto Coldshoe Lock (not included) to secure your camera to the Halfcage by usng your camera's cold shoe. Please confirm compatibility with Zacuto prior to attempting this.
    The Halfcage Rail features a special magnetic indentation along the side for storing the included Allen key.
    Both locking levers, the QR for the Z-Rail and the integrated 15mm rod clamp, are spring-loaded. This allows you to tighten the clamps fully, even when you can't rotate the levers through a full 360°.

  • Recoil Handle

    The Zacuto Recoil Handle is a maple-wood-lined handgrip that mounts to a Z-Rail or compatible mounting rail. This provides a comfortable yet secure handle for your camera rig, and the rail-style mounting allows you to adjust the handle along the length of the rail to improve your rigs balance. It features two cold shoe mounts (one vertical and one horizontal) and secures both mounts with a single lever. The integrated 1/4"-20 threaded mounting hole, and 15mm rod clamps further expand on the Recoil Handle's usefulness.

    Machined aluminum construction provides a balance of strength and weight, and the unit is anodized for corrosion and wear resistance. Large, spring-loaded locking levers provide a good grip and the capability of tightening the clamps without rotating the levers throughout the entire 360° range.

    Key Features

    The Recoil Handle clamps securely along the length of a Zacuto Z-Rail, allowing you to adjust the balance of your camera or camera rig. In addition to the Z-Rail, the handle is compatible with a variety of rails including: NATO, SWAT, RED, Picatinny, and Wooden Camera. You can mount the handle with the cold shoes or the rod clamps.
    The maple-wood grip linings remain cool in hot weather and are generally considered to be more comfortable to hold. The wood is tooled to provide finger slots for increased comfort and grip.
    The two cold shoes incorporate built-in stoppers and a single lever clamps both shoes simultaneously, securing your accessories. A 1/4"-20 accessory mounting point is threaded into the side of the cold shoe mounts.
    Two offset 15mm rod clamps allow you to mount rods at right angles to each other. Each rod clamp features its own spring-loaded locking lever.
