The Zacuto Gratical HD Indie Recoil Kit from B&H is a universal shoulder-mounted rig designed for DSLRs and mirrorless cameras that pairs Zacuto's Indie EVF Recoil with their Gratical HD Micro OLED EVF. The Indie EVF Recoil includes a VCT Universal baseplate, QR Riser, Zgrip Z-Mount Zwivel handgrip, Halfcage Rail, and a Recoil Handle. 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 has a built-in, curved shoulder pad for comfortable shoulder-mounted shooting, and a V-wedge connector for mounting the rig on a tripod. The baseplate also provides 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes and includes removable 6.5" long 15mm rods for mounting accessories such as an optional follow focus or matte box, as well as the included Zgrip Z-Mount Zwivel handgrip. The QR Riser raises your camera to a height compatible with matte boxes and also provides a quick-release for your camera. It includes a Gorilla Plate V2 and Gorilla Tripod Dock.

The Halfcage Rail is a solid, adjustable, universal cage structure for the side and top of your camera rig. It comes with a 3" Z-rail for mounting on the side of the VCT Universal Baseplate. The Halfcage Rail expands to fit over your camera and accessories and includes a Z-Rail, 1/4"-20 screw, and 15mm rod accessory attachment ports. The Recoil Handle attaches to the top of the Halfcage via an included 5" Z-Rail and serves a top handle that attaches directly to your camera with an included 5" Z-Rail. The Recoil Handle accepts two cold-shoe accessories and has a quick-release 15mm rod port for attaching the Gratical HD EVF via an included Axis Mini adjustable mounting arm.

By moving positioning the camera further back on your shoulder, an EVF becomes an important component for framing and monitoring your shots. 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 ¼"-20 threaded holes.

Please see the links below for more information on the components of this kit.

  • Zacuto Indie Recoil
    Take your mirrorless camera or DSLR and create a shoulder-mounted camera system with the Indie Recoil from Zacuto. It bundles together the VCT Universal Baseplate with a QR Riser, Zgrip Zwivel Handgrip, Halfcage Rail, and the Recoil Handle to create a whole system that just needs an optional EVF to complete.

    The VCT Universal Baseplate is the core of the rig with a couple 15mm rods and a curved shoulder pad for comfort. This accepts the QR Riser to put your camera in the appropriate position and the Zgrip Zwivel Handgrip mounts to one of the 15mm rods for tactile control. Adding the Halfcage Rail this rig provides an adjustable cage structure for the top and side of your camera. It also comes with a 3" Z-Rail for mounting on the side of the baseplate. Finally, the Recoild Handle mounts to the top of the Halfcage Rail to complete the system and have a variety of mounting points, such as cold shoes and a 15mm rod port, in order to hold all of your accessories.

  • 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.

    General Features

    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

    Scopes
    • 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.
    False Color
    The False Color feature provides under/over luminance warning by presenting the image as a series of color values representing exposure.
    Peaking
    Peaking highlights the sharpest (most in focus) areas of the image with a color outline.
    Zebra
    Provides a crawling black and white pattern overlaying areas that exceed the brightness levels you select.
    Frame Store
    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
