The Zacuto Indie Gratical Eye Bundle includes the VCT Pro baseplate, Zgrip Z-Mount Zwivel handgrip, QR Riser, Halfcage Rail, Recoil Handle, Gratical Eye SDI EVF, and Axis Mini ENG-style mount.

The VCT Pro baseplate is compatible with cameras such as the Canon EOS C-series, Sony FS5 and FS7, AJA CION, BlackMagic, RED cameras, Arri Alexa and Amira, DSLRs, Mirrorless and more. The VCT Pro has a built-in, curved shoulder pad and an Arri M6 rosette for accessories and grips. 

The Zgrip Z-Mount Zwivel Handgrip 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 QR Riser allows you to raise your camera to a matte box compatible height, while also providing quick-release functionality for the camera. The Halfcage Rail attaches to the Zacuto VCT Universal baseplate and creates a solid, universal cage structure around the side and top of your camera.

The Recoil Handle is a maple wood-lined handgrip that mounts to a Z-Rail or compatible mounting rail. With the Gratical Eye, Zacuto takes the 0.61", 1280 x 1024 micro OLED panel found in their Gratical HD and packs it into an EVF that weighs just 14 oz and fits into the palm of your hand. In order to keep the EVF small and compact, it features a round design and it equipped with only a single 3G-SDI input that supports up to 1080p60 video, a 2-pin LEMO power connector, and a USB port for firmware updates.

Providing an adjustable way for attaching a rosette-mounted EVF to your camera, the 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 Zwivel allows you to change the angle between two 15mm rods by loosening the single lever that controls both the 15mm holes.
    The Handgrip supports all 15mm rods with the quick release handgrip.
    The integrated spring separates the parts for you to achieve the desired angle between the rods.
  • 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).

  • 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.
  • Gratical Eye Micro OLED EVF

    With the Gratical Eye, Zacuto takes the highly regarded 0.61", 1280 x 1024 micro OLED panel found in their Gratical HD and packs into an EVF that weighs just 14 oz and fits into the palm of your hand. In order to keep the EVF small and compact, it features a round design and it equipped with only a single 3G-SDI input that supports up to 1080p60 video, a 2-pin LEMO power connector, and a USB port for firmware updates. Not content at being just a professional-grade EVF that produces natural looking images with a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, the Gratical Eye is equipped with a FPGA dual core processor to support the full set of monitoring and image analysis features found on the larger Gratical HD, including LUT support, vectorscope and waveform displays, and peaking, which are controlled using a joystick-style button on the back of the unit. With its compact size and full feature set, the Gratical Eye is an EVF ideally suited for use with professional SDI cameras and rigs using external power solutions.

  • 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.
