The Sony FS7 Recoil from Zacuto is a shoulder-mounted rig for the Sony FS7 that includes the VCT Universal Baseplate, Rosette Minimount for the FS7 handgrip, and Axis Mini for mounting the FS7's monitor. Part of Zacuto's "Next Generation" Recoil rigs, the Sony FS7 Recoil is designed for optimal balance and comfort when shoulder mounted or on a tripod. With modern lenses and cameras being similar weights, the balance point is often where the lens meets the camera body. Zacuto's Recoil rigs place the balance directly over your shoulder, relocating focus, monitoring, and camera controls forward, and creating a lighter and shorter rig.
The VCT Universal baseplate features an integrated, curved shoulder pad for comfortable shoulder-mounted shooting, and a V-lock tripod connector for interfacing with V-lock tripod plates. The baseplate also provides 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 screw options, and includes removable 6.5" long 15mm rods with internal threading for adding optional extensions. The Rosette Minimount slides on to the 15mm rods, providing ARRI standard rosettes for relocating the FS7 handgrip arm to better suit the Recoil setup. The Axis Mini attaches to the 15mm rod on the FS7's top handle to mount either a rosette mounted EVF, like Zacuto's Gratical HD, or the FS7's included monitor. It is adjustable to position the monitor/EVF for shoulder-mounted or tripod shooting.
Please see the links below for more information on the components of this bundle.
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.
