The Axis Mini for Sony FS7 from Zacuto is an adjustable ENG-style mount used to attach the FS7's monitor, or a separately available EVF like Gratical HD. With four adjustment points and independently controlled red tension levers, the Axis Mini makes changing the position of the monitor/EVF quick and easy, whether the camera is shoulder mounted or on a tripod. It mounts to the camera using an included FS7 Rod Lock, which screws into the body in front of the top handle. The Axis Mini simply slides into the extra 15mm rod port on the Rod Lock and clamp it into place.

    Zacuto Z-M-AEMS7 reviews

    Axis Mini for Sony FS7 is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not work well with stock FS7 EVF I purchased the Axis Mini along with Zacuto's VCT Universal Baseplate for my FS7 because I do a lot of handheld work and I liked the idea of a perfectly balanced rig. However, I found that even with the Axis Mini, I could not position the EVF far enough away from my face. The baseplate positions the camera so far back I had to move my head back several inches into a contorted position in order to look through the EVF. The cable that runs from the EVF to the camera body becomes taut with the EVF that far out, which is not ideal either. I also found that the Axis Mini not only positions the EVF to the front of the camera, but it also brings it uncomfortably far away from the body of the camera. I had to turn my head to the left in order to see through the EVF which quickly put a lot of strain on my neck. This is a well engineered part, but it is HEAVY. The stock rod that connects the EVF to the camera is light as a feather compared to this. This might be a good system if you're willing to put down another $2k for Zacuto's Gratical HD EVF, but I'm happy with the stock EVF. I ended up returning this and going with Shape's baseplate which positions the camera so that the EVF is at a comfortable distance from my face. Vocas also makes a killer baseplate that is much lighter than either of these.
