The Zacuto Gratical HD EVF Recoil Kit for Canon C100 from B&H is a complete shoulder-mounted rig designed specifically for the Canon C100 or C100 Mark II, pairing Zacuto's C100 EVF Recoil with their Gratical HD Micro OLD EVF. The C100 EVF Recoil includes a VCT Universal baseplate, Zgrip Relocator for the C100's handgrip, and a C100 Z-Finder Bracket with an Axis Mount. The rig is designed for optimal balance and comfort when shoulder-mounted or on a tripod, without the need for heavy counterweights. 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-wedge 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 Zgrip slides on to one of the 15mm rods and relocates the C100 handgrip to better suit the Recoil setup. The C100 Z-Finder Bracket, which comes with the Axis Mount for C100, attaches to the handle of your C100 camera with 1/4"-20 screws and provides multiple accessory attachment points. Along the top of the bracket are two 1/4"-20 threads alternating with two 3/8"-16 threads. The Axis Mount provides a quick-release 15mm rod port for attaching an included Axis Mini to mount the Gratical HD EVF.
The Gratical HD uses a micro OLED panel no bigger than your thumbnail that is packed with more than 5.4 million dots to deliver 720p resolution images with true blacks. It features SDI and HDMI inputs/outputs and supports cross-conversion as well as custom LUTs on both the viewfinder's display and the downstream video. Additionally, it is packed with all the professional scopes and video assist functions you'd expect from a professional viewfinder, and offers a variety of mounting options, including an ARRI compatible rosette and 1/4"-20 threaded holes.

Zacuto C100 EVF Recoil
The shoulder-mounted Zacuto C100 EVF Recoil includes the Zacuto VCT Universal baseplate, C100 Z-Finder Bracket with an Axis Mount for C100, and Zgrip Relocator. 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 C100 Z-Finder Bracket, which comes with the Axis Mount for C100, attaches to the handle of your C100 camera with 1/4"-20 screws and provides multiple accessory attachment points. Along the top of the bracket are two 1/4"-20 threads alternating with two 3/8"-16 threads. The Axis Mount provides a quick-release 15mm rod port for an Axis Mini or articulating arm.
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
