The Zacuto's Cine EVF Recoil conforms to the Recoil camera balance philosophy championed by Zacuto. The Cine Recoil includes the VCT Universal baseplate, Zgrip Z-Mount Zwivel, and Recoil Handle. This recoil rig is designed to provide optimal balance with the RED One, Epic, Scarlet, Blackmagic Cinema Camera, AJA Cion, and ARRI ALEXA. Optimal balance defined by Zacuto as the point where the lens mounts to the camera sitting directly over the camera operator's shoulder. This frequently requires focus, monitoring, and camera controls to be relocated forward, to balance the rig correctly.

The VCT Universal Baseplate has a built-in, curved shoulder pad, a v-wedge tripod connector, 6.5" (16.5 cm) iris rods, and rows of 1/4"-20 threads along the sides for accessories. The recessed rod mount offers maximum accessory space under your camera lens. The Zgrip Z-Mount Zwivel is a fully articulating handgrip that attaches to a single 15mm rod with a Zwivel mount that can be set at multiple different angles for comfort and ease of use. The Recoil Handle is a solid top grip that attaches directly to your camera with an included 5" Z-Rail. The Recoil Handle can accept two cold-shoe accessories and has a quick release 15mm rod port.

Note: This rig requires the addition of a monitor or Zacuto EVF.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
