Surround your mirrorless camera or DSLR with the Zacuto Indie Recoil V2 to transform it into a production-ready shoulder rig. The heart of the Indie Recoil is the VCT Pro, a lightweight baseplate with a built-in gel shoulder pad which easily secures to readily available VCT-14 tripod quick release plates. A movable top plate lets you move the camera forward or backwards to achieve precise balance without requiring tools. Since the balanced point can be placed right on your shoulder, counterweights are not needed, thereby making the Recoil a smaller and lighter shoulder rig compared to more traditional rig solutions. The 15mm rods at the front of the baseplate can be used to mount 15mm LWS accessories such as follow focus assemblies, lens supports, matte boxes, and more.

All rig components—the QR Riser, Zgrip Z-Mount Zwivel Handgrip, Half Cage, and Recoil Handle—feature spring-loaded levers for quick assembly and disassembly. With practice, the entire rig can be dismantled in a matter of seconds for easy packing after striking the set.

Note: The Recoil rig is designed so the camera is moved behind the operator's field-of-view while shoulder-mounted. In order to properly monitor recorded video, a separately available external monitor or electronic viewfinder is required.

  • VCT Pro Baseplate

    With built-in ergonomic shoulder pad, 10" sliding track, extra space for accessories in front, VCT14-compatible V-wedge, red buttons and levers all around, and much more, this is the stylish VCT Pro Baseplate from Zacuto. Use it with all types of cameras, from DSLRs to larger models, like the Alexa.

    A section of the baseplate extends out beyond the 15mm LWS rod adapter in front. With the rod adapter thus set back, you have additional space to mount accessories under the camera lens, allowing you to position the camera further back on the plate, keeping the balance point of your rig directly over your shoulder. (The rod adapter is vertically adjustable 1", and has to be in a raised position to allow for accessories to be mounted in the additional space. Also, a 1.8" riser for the rod adapter is optionally available for RED cameras by special order from Zacuto.) Also, on the bottom of the section that protrudes out is where the V-wedge is. There is also a 15mm LWS rod adapter on the rear.

    The VCT Pro Baseplate features a 10" sliding track, providing the space to optimally adjust balance after every lens change. Moreover, the included red camera plate can be loosened by a spring-loaded lever instead of a screw, so you can make adjustments quickly and easily. To fully release and remove the plate (and camera), just press a red button on the side of the baseplate and slide the plate out. The rod ports also have spring-loaded levers.

    An ARRI M6 rosette is available on the front for attaching accessories and grips, and there are also three 1/4"-20 threaded holes on the side providing additional mounting options. 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 tripod mount holes are available on the bottom to use instead of the V-wedge. The shoulder pad runs pretty much along the entire length as well as width of the baseplate, and is made of gel polymer. Two 6.5" 15mm rods are included. One 1/4"-20 and one 3/8"-16 screw are supplied for the camera plate. The VCT Pro Baseplate is made in the USA.

  • QR Riser

    The Zacuto QR Riser allows you to raise your camera to a matte box compatible height, while also providing quick-release functionality for the camera. It supports DSLRs and other cameras with low-lens positioning relative to the camera body (such as the Sony FS700).

  • Zgrip Z-Mount Zwivel Handgrip

    The Zgrip Z-Mount Zwivel Handgrip from Zacuto comes with a black 4.5" rod and a Z-Mount Zwivel. It easily mounts on any 15mm rod with the quick release handgrip. The Zwivel allows you to change the angle between two 15mm rods by loosening the single lever that controls both the 15mm holes. Adjustments to achieve the desired angle are possible by the separation between the parts induced by the integrated spring.

    The Handgrip supports all 15mm rods with the quick release handgrip.

  • Halfcage Rail for Zacuto VCT Universal Baseplate

    The Zacuto Halfcage Rail attaches to the Zacuto VCT Universal baseplate and creates a solid, universal cage structure around the side and top of your camera. It features a contoured wood side grip, and the built-in double-sided Z-Rail offers you the ability to add an optional top handle or Zacuto Coldshoe lock (not included). The side grip incorporates fifteen 1/4"-20 threaded accessory mounting points.

    An included 5" Z-Rail attaches along the side of the VCT Universal baseplate with two 1/4"-20 screws. The Halfcage Rail then attaches that 5" Z-rail via a spring-loaded quick-release. At its most compact height, the Halfcage Rail has a clearance of 5.5". Four Allen head screws enable you to adjust the height to a 9" clearance. The side grip incorporates a 15mm rod port for attaching accessories.

    The contoured wood handle is made of hand-tooled maple.
    You can adjust the clearance height from 5.5 to 9" to accommodate a variety of different cameras.
    The double-sided top Z-Rail allows you to use a Zacuto Coldshoe Lock (not included) to secure your camera to the Halfcage by usng your camera's cold shoe. Please confirm compatibility with Zacuto prior to attempting this.
    The Halfcage Rail features a special magnetic indentation along the side for storing the included Allen key.
    Both locking levers, the QR for the Z-Rail and the integrated 15mm rod clamp, are spring-loaded. This allows you to tighten the clamps fully, even when you can't rotate the levers through a full 360°.

  • Recoil Handle

    The Zacuto Recoil Handle is a maple-wood-lined handgrip that mounts to a Z-Rail or compatible mounting rail. This provides a comfortable yet secure handle for your camera rig, and the rail-style mounting allows you to adjust the handle along the length of the rail to improve your rigs balance. It features two cold shoe mounts (one vertical and one horizontal) and secures both mounts with a single lever. The integrated 1/4"-20 threaded mounting hole, and 15mm rod clamps further expand on the Recoil Handle's usefulness.

    Machined aluminum construction provides a balance of strength and weight, and the unit is anodized for corrosion and wear resistance. Large, spring-loaded locking levers provide a good grip and the capability of tightening the clamps without rotating the levers throughout the entire 360° range.

    Key Features

    The Recoil Handle clamps securely along the length of a Zacuto Z-Rail, allowing you to adjust the balance of your camera or camera rig. In addition to the Z-Rail, the handle is compatible with a variety of rails including: NATO, SWAT, RED, Picatinny, and Wooden Camera. You can mount the handle with the cold shoes or the rod clamps.
    The maple-wood grip linings remain cool in hot weather and are generally considered to be more comfortable to hold. The wood is tooled to provide finger slots for increased comfort and grip.
    The two cold shoes incorporate built-in stoppers and a single lever clamps both shoes simultaneously, securing your accessories. A 1/4"-20 accessory mounting point is threaded into the side of the cold shoe mounts.
    Two offset 15mm rod clamps allow you to mount rods at right angles to each other. Each rod clamp features its own spring-loaded locking lever.
