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.
