Zacuto Z-RCH overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Zacuto Z-RCH reviews

    Recoil Handle is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy, Solid, and Versatile I'm building on Redrock Micro foundation. Mostly shooting with Blackmagic 4K camera, but sometimes use Canon 7D and 5D. This handle is rock solid and gives tons of mounting options (cold shoe, 15mm rods). Zacuto is expensive, but once you hold their stuff you'll get it. It's just feels like something you'll have forever -- and their non-electronic gear has a lifetime warranty (when I was researching, the warranty was the tipping factor between the final two). I also like that Zacuto is moving toward a rig for many cameras. One thing I've learned: camera bodies are not forever. You'll change bodies every 2-4 years most likely. Zacuto's new stuff is not locking you into a rig for a camera. That helps justify the bigger investment overall.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from very happy with this handle I replaced the handle on my Sony FS700, which I think was meant for a small child, with the Recoil Handle by Zacuto. It fits nicely on top of the camera and it is very comfortable to grasp and carry the camera now. I tend to attach a t-bar with a couple of wireless lav receivers onto the cold shoe plate in addition to screwing in an articulating arm that holds a separate monitor/recorder. A little pricey but worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Handle, but doesn't fit the 8Sinn EVA-1 Top plate It slides onto the plate but the red lever that tightens the handle rubs and the handle sits slightly lopsided. I am buying a Zacuto top plate now! Love the smell of the oil in the timber too.
