Featuring the Zacuto Gratical HD Micro OLED EVF, this bundle provides you with Zacuto's next generation Recoil designed for your Canon C300 camera and an adjustable ENG-style mount for the included Gratical EVF. The Gratical packs more display features and functions than is found in many much larger EVFs and on-camera monitors. With a 10,000:1 contrast ratio that supports RGB at 24-bits with 5.5 million dots of resolution, the Gratical is extremely sharp and renders wide gamut of colors .
The included shoulder support places the balance point of your mounted camera just forward of your shoulder, bringing comfortable handholding balance to your camera. It includes the Zgrip relocator and the C300/C500 Helmet kit that attaches directly to your camera which allows you to attach accessories to your camera, without stressing your camera body. The included Axis Mini allows you to mount the Gratical to the top handle of the Recoil.
Zacuto C300 EVF Recoil
The Zacuto C300 EVF Recoil is a balanced, shoulder mounted rig that includes the VCT Universal baseplate, Zgrip Relocator, and C300/500 Helmet Kit. This Recoil rig is designed to provide optimal balance whether shoulder mounted or on a tripod. When lenses and cameras are similar in weight, the balance point is where the lens meets the camera body. With this Recoil rig, the balance point will be directly over your shoulder. This requires focus, monitoring, and camera controls to be relocated forward, creating a lighter and shorter rig.
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 Relocator is an articulating handgrip that incorporates the Grip Relocator for your Canon C100/300 removable control grip. It provides full articulation via lever, and a right-angle cable connects to the port on your camera. It offers trigger on/off control, lens aperture control, waveform, 1:1 zoom, zebras, and more.
The C300/500 Helmet Kit mounts directly to the top of the C300/500 in place of the Canon top handle. It offers multiple 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting threads to attach a variety of accessories. It includes a solid Recoil Handle top grip that accepts two cold-shoe accessories and that has a quick-release, 15mm rod port.
Note: This rig requires the addition of a monitor or Zacuto EVF.
Zacuto Axis Mini EVF Mount
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 Gratical HD Micro OLED EVF
Rising far above the readily available generic EVF or LCD screen with a loupe magnifier attachment, the Zacuto Gratical HD Micro OLED EVF packs more display features and functions than is found in many much larger EVFs and on-camera monitors. At the heart of the EVF is a micro OLED panel about the size of your thumbnail with 5.5 million dots of resolution that produces an image with true blacks and a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, supporting RGB at 24-bits for vivid color rendition. You can choose to display a 720p image within the full resolution display of the OLED and then display the various scopes and signal displays outside of your picture area, which allows you to have an unobstructed view of your image while being able to see a waveform or histogram display of your image.
The EVF incorporates both SDI and HDMI loop-through inputs/outputs and can cross convert from HDMI to SDI. It also supports peaking, false color, and test pattern generation as well as LUT creation and import. You can also select to view/display audio meters. The unit features four user-programmable buttons for often-used menu selections, and supports multiple frame rates. Zacuto has designed the entire optical path, providing a diopter that is adjustable from -1 to +4. The optical path includes an automatic light trap that can prevent damage to the EVF from accidental exposure to direct sunlight. Incorporating an ARRI-compatible rosette and a 1/4"-20 mounting hole provides a variety of means to mount the EVF to your camera. The EVF powers from a single LP-E6 type battery, and this 1800mAH battery provides approximately four hours of constant run time.
The 1280 x 1024 resolution of the OLED allows it to display a 1280 x 720 image and various diagnostic displays without needing to overlay the signals over the image. You can adjust the position of your image and displays to what suits you best, or you can also choose to overlay the diagnostic signals on the image.
You can create and store LUTS within the EVF and apply individual LUTS to either or both the EVF display and the downstream video.
The OLED display and outputs are independent of each other, which means you can display the video signal with one LUT on the EVF and send the video signal with a different LUT to an external monitor. Likewise, you can display the various test signals and diagnostic signals either on both the EVF on a downstream monitor or either one or the other.
Weather resistant covers prevent moisture or debris from getting in open ports.
You can choose to display audio meters in the EVF.
LUTs, test patterns, scope displays, and other display functions can be displayed in the EVF or simultaneously on the downstream video. You can select to have the EVF and the downstream video display different LUTs and/or display functions as well.
Test Patterns & Diagnostic Signals
The waveform provides an objective evaluation of your video signal. It displays the brightness of your image on an IRE scale, allowing you to see if your image will clip and where your black levels are.
The Vectorscope displays the signal on a graph so you can check the phase of your colors. The Vectorscope function also verifies and checks the overall tint and hue of an image.
The Historgram view allows you to see where your pixels are distributed in the spectrum of black to white, providing a quick way to see where your exposure values fall. You can choose to display the Histogram as either RGB or Luma.
The False Color feature provides under/over luminance warning by presenting the image as a series of color values representing exposure.
Peaking highlights the sharpest (most in focus) areas of the image with a color outline.
Provides a crawling black and white pattern overlaying areas that exceed the brightness levels you select.
You can store frames within the EVF to recall them at a later time. You can also adjust the transparency of the frame store and superimpose it on the current view when you need to align shots.
Test Pattern Generation
The EVF can generate color bars and a Macbeth color chart
