Zacuto Z-M-AEM Overview

A versatile and adjustable means for attaching a rosette-mounted EVF to your camera, the Zacuto Axis Mini is an ENG-style mount that is designed to attach to the top of your camera setup and provide you with ample room for adjusting focus or working with large lenses. It attaches directly to rigs fitted with a 15mm rod port and then connects with EVFs, such as the Gratical HD, using a secure 1/4"-20 rosette mount, or can also be used with 1/4"-20 screw mount EVFs with the separate Quad Rail for mounting.

Once attached, the Axis Mini's adjustable design utilizes four main pivoting points, which can spin a full 360° and are controlled using independent tension levers. With all levers unlocked, you can freely position the EVF at will using a single hand, or specific sections can be tightened down for fine-tuned adjustments on a single axis. Additionally, the articulation can be configured to work seamlessly with both shoulder-mounted rigs as well as for tripod-based shooting.

Zacuto Z-M-AEM Reviews

Game changer for shoulder mount operation

By Jay
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-23

Before I had this, my back hurt after operating the C300 on a shoulder mount b/c I couldn't adjust the stock EVF to a comfy position. With this I can and there are 5 points of adjustment which helps get the perfect position. The friction locks work very well and the build quality is super sturdy. When I was researching how to mount it to the c300, I was worried I would have to spend a ton to stay in Zacuto's ecosystem with a top plate and all that but i found a attachment on Amazon for $18 which made it possible to keep the stock handle and not pay for a Zacuto top plate and handle. The piece is a smallrig 15mm rod clamp with nato rail.

this is a must have

the factory mount for the evf on the FX9 is not very strong, so the EVF tends to be a little tilted, which in return makes me compensate by ruining my horizon. this piece (plus the other pieces you need to mount it) have made all the difference for me. It's a little heavier, but if works.

it doesn't lock in position

It attaches. It holds the EVF. But it does NOT lock in position as it is advertised to Not one of the 3 units we purchased. Jokes on us... EVF flops around like a fish out of water.

This viewfinder arm works perfectly with the grammatical I. The only reason I didn't give it five stars was it is a little bulky with all the friction knobs to adjust tilt and swing of the arm from your camera. It is great though comparatively to the other cheaper arm that does not have the same adjustability on the fly.

Update to my review : doesn't last well

This type of attatchment is really needed for an EVF, don't think about trying to use a magic arm. But this unit leaks grease all over the place. The first unit I bought and returned because of that issue, I just thought it was defective. 2nd one I received sure enough not a year later and the whole thing is covered with grease all over it. Don't store this anywhere near your other gear. Would not buy this again!

question

Is there any way to mount the rosette to the SmallHD Sidefinder? Or do I need to purchase the quad rail as well.
Asked by: Tyler
The SmallHD Sidefinder has a variety of ways to mount it. If wish to use a rosette, SmallHD suggests using this part: The SMALLRIG ARRI Standard Rosette Bolt-On Mount (M6 Thread) 1939. B&H does not carry this at this time.

question

Is this sufficient for mounting the Zacuto gratical eye on the fs7, or is the specific fs7 version a much better option?
Asked by: Matt A.
You can mount this to the FS7 so long as you have a 15mm rod clamp. I believe the Axis mini kit for the FS7 comes with additional support, such as a 15mm clamp.
