The Zacuto Sony FS5 EVF Recoil Pro is a shoulder-mounted rig designed to provide optimal balance when using the Sony PXW-FS5 digital cinema camera. The EVF Recoil includes the VCT Pro baseplate, the Zgrip Trigger handgrip relocator, a Top Plate, and a 13.8" LANC extension cable. An optional EVF or on-board monitor can be mounted to the included Axis Mini EVF mount. This rig positions the center of balance where the lens mounts to the camera and relocates focus, monitoring, and camera controls forward, creating an evenly distributed, more comfortable handheld configuration. It also relocates your FS5's original Sony handgrip to a more ergonomic operating position.

Note: This rig requires the addition of an on-board monitor or Zacuto EVF.

  • 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 Trigger for Camera with Relocatable Rosette Grip

    The Zgrip Trigger for Camera with Relocatable Rosette Grip from Zacuto relocates your camera's original handgrip to a more ergonomic operating position, reducing operator fatigue. The Zgrip adjusts up to 6" for a total length of 11", setting your grip at a comfortable distance from the camera. No need to remove the camera from your shoulder when adjusting the Zgrip's angle; a push button enables you to rotate the Zgrip a full 360° with one hand. This grip attaches to your camera body or rig via an integrated ARRI-type (M6) rosette.

  • 13.8" LANC Extension Cable

    This 13.8" LANC Extension Cable from Zacuto features a right-angle 2.5mm mini jack and 2.5mm female plug. This heavy-duty, 24 AWG cable is UL approved and ideal for use with Zacuto's FS700 Grip Relocator.

  • 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.

  • Axis Mini Monitor Mount for Sony FS5
    Provided by third party:

    The Axis Mini for Sony FS5 is the most adjustable ENG style mount for the Sony FS5 Monitor, giving you full 360 motion with four adjustment points. Designed to attach to the FS5 top plate, it leaves plenty of room at the lens for focusing and will work with the widest of lenses. It can easily be adjusted with one hand while the rig is on your shoulder. The Axis Mini has extensive articulation for use in a variety of positions, both shoulder mounted in a next generation recoil or in tripod operating position. It is very small and quick to install and remove.
    The Axis Mini for Sony FS5 attaches to your rig via a 15 mm rod. Slide the Axis Mini into side facing 15 mm rod port and clamp into place. If you don't have a side facing rod port you can get the FS5 top plate. It attaches to the FS5 LCD with the included FS5 to 1/4 20 rosette adapter. Alternately, you can remove the adapter and attach the Axis Mini directly to a Gratical.
    The Axis Mini has three red tension levers that are controlled independently with 360 degree motion. Release all three levers to completely reposition the mount or release just one to make single segment adjustments. You can dial in the exact amount of tension needed at each lever to adjust on the fly. Just grab and move.
