Make your Sony FS5 a comfortable, ergonomic shoulder-mounted system with the Sony FS5 Z-Finder Gratical Bundle from Zacuto. This kit bundles together a few essential pieces that will comprise a complete customizable rig for shooting. At the heart of the rig is the VCT Universal baseplate with a built-in curved shoulder pad. It also features a V-wedge tripod connection and removable 15mm rods for accessories. For enhanced operation, it has the FS5 Grip Relocator, which mounts to a 15mm rod and can be set at multiple angles and lengths. This includes a 13.5" LANC extension cable for keeping everything connected. An FS5 Top Plate fits around the camera's top handle and provides a side-facing 15mm rod and multiple mounting threads for accessories, such as the included Gratical HD Micro OLED EVF. This 0.61" EVF offers a spectacular array of features, including an HD 1280 x 720 resolution with 24-bit color. It also has a variety of functions and can handle LUTs for working with log footage.

  • 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.

    Designed to work with virtually any camera
    Enables you to go from hand held/shoulder shooting to tripod shooting without changing mounting plates
    Attaches to any VCT14 QR tripod adapter system
    Vertically adjustable 15mm LWS rod clamps with spring-loaded locking levers
    Rear mounted screw thread sockets for 15mm rods following the Light Weight Rod Standard (LWS) of 60mm on-center distance between rods

  • Rosette Grip Relocator

    The Rosette Grip Relocator from Zacuto is a useful extension arm designed to relocate the grip of the Sony FS5 or Panasonic VariCam LT to a more comfortable position for the user. The rosette adapter easily connects to the camera and grip via four included screws and a standard M6 screw, and does not interfere with the remounting or functionality of the FS5 grip.

    The grip is fully articulating via an integrated ball joint which is controlled by a quick release lever. A Z-Mount Zwivel 2 has also been incorporated into the arm in order to accept standard 15mm rods which may be adjusted to the required angle. It is important to note that the Relocator does not contain any electronic connections, and a separately sold LANC extension cable is required in order to maintain functionality of the FS5 grip.

  • FS5 Top Plate

    Offering the ability to seamlessly integrate accessories into the FS5 shooting workflow, the FS5 Top Plate from Zacuto comprises a dedicated plate with a built-in 15mm side-facing rod lock to permit attaching various 15mm rod accessories to the camera. Included with the top plate is a separate 3"-long 15mm rod for mounting accessories, such as the FS5's LCD with attached Z-Finder. Both sides of the top plate also incorporate one 3/8"-16 and five 1/4"-20 threaded mounts, as well as custom-sized screw holes for relocating the Sony cable holder and film plane marker.

  • 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
