Zacuto Z-S5ZR-V2 overview

  • 1Description

The Z-Finder Recoil Kit from Zacuto is a shoulder-mounted rig that includes the VCT Pro Baseplate, the FS5 Grip Relocator for the Sony FS5 handgrip, a 13.5" LANC extension cable, the FS5 Top Plate with 3” F/F rod, and the Zacuto FS5 Z-Finder. The kit is designed for optimal balance and comfort when shoulder mounted or on a tripod. With lenses and cameras being similar weights, the balance point is where the lens meets the camera body.

The VCT Pro Baseplate has a sliding top plate for quickly removing the camera from the rig or fast length changes. It also has a built-in, curved shoulder pad, a V-wedge tripod connector, a removable and extendable 6.5” iris rods and rows of 1/4"-20 screw holes along the sides for accessories. With quick release 15mm rod parts in the rear and recessed rod mount, this rig offers maximum accessory capable space under your camera lens.

The FS5 Grip Relocator features a rod cap and relocates the Sony grip to your hand for recoil shooting. It attaches to a single 15mm rod with a Zwivel mount that can be set at multiple different angles for comfort and ease of use. The relocator includes a 13.5" LANC extension cable.

The FS5 Top Plate is designed to fit around the camera top handle, as it gives you a side facing 15mm rod lock and multiple mounting screw holes. The FS5 Z-Finder comes with a flip-up frame designed to slide onto the FS5 LCD and a locking mount to attach to the top plate.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Sony FS5 Z-Finder Recoil Rig

    Make your Sony FS5 a comfortable, ergonomic shoulder-mounted system with the Sony FS5 Z-Finder Recoil Rig 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 Z-Finder. This viewfinder can be flipped up when not in use and provides a crisp clear view of the screen when desired.

Zacuto Z-S5ZR-V2 reviews

Z-Finder Recoil Kit for Sony FS5 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from poor design Purchased this based on our Zacuto Recoil for the FS7. 2 big problems I have with this 1. Once attached, The viewfinder can't be adjusted by touch. That's right...the only way to tilt up your viewfinder is to loosen the whole assembly. This leads to the viewfinder being too low and in the frame of smaller prime lenses. 2. The handgrip and arm relocator are also difficult to adjust. And the arm extension for the handgrip is pretty short, so you end up getting an arm cramp when you use it. For the $1200 price tag, I thought I was getting the same recoil that the FS7 has...the viewfinder retains all it's adjustability and the arm extension is useful. Now I understand that the FS7 has it's own extended arm for the grip, but I would expect this unit to offer something similar. Overall very disappointed in this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shoulder Rig for the Sony Fs5 Buying this rig is a great investment. The price, quality and performance of the Zacuto will speak for itself. The best thing about it is the many possible custom builds you can make. I have a Shape relocator arm that attaches to the arri mount of the Zacuto VCT Pro baseplate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I dig it. Works well and sturdily made. Not sure how I feel about the view finder yet. I really only use it to escape the sun.
