The Zacuto C100 Mark II EVF Recoil Pro V2 rig is a shoulder rig designed specifically for the Canon C100 Mark II camera. It includes the Zacuto C100 Mark II Helmet, C100/C300/C500 Trigger Grip, and VCT Pro Baseplate. This rig follows Zacuto's Recoil Rig philosophy of placing the balance point directly over your shoulder, thereby putting the camera body behind the shoulder and relocating focus, monitoring, and camera controls forward to create a lighter, shorter, and properly balanced rig.
The C100 Mark II Helmet is custom-designed to fit your C100 Mark II and provides forward or backward top handle adjustment, double-sided Z-Rail jaws, and spring-loaded locking levers. The Trigger Grip enables mounting the camera's handgrip on an articulating extendable arm. The VCT PRO Baseplate enables balancing your camera on your shoulder or mounting on a tripod, and includes 15mm rods and rod clamps.
Zacuto 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.

Zacuto Canon C100/C300/C500 Trigger Grip
The Canon C100/C300/C500 Trigger Grip from Zacuto is an adjustable relocator for the Canon C100/C300/C500 camera grip. It's designed to attach to camera supports offering an ARRI-standard rosette, including the Zacuto VCT Pro baseplate. The entire unit can be rotated a full 360° at the quick press of a lever with no need to unscrew a knob or lever as with standard handgrips, and it can also be adjusted in length by loosening another lever.
Zacuto C100 Mark II Helmet
The C100 Mark II Helmet from Zacuto attaches to the top of the Canon C100 Mark II camera body, providing a sturdier connection point for the camera's top handle while adding the ability to slide the handle forward and backward for balancing. It consists of the helmet itself, a 5" Z-rail, and a double-jawed Z-Rail lock for secure attachment of the top handle. The helmet attaches via one screw on top and one on the side, replacing the film plane screw on the left side of the camera. The Z-rail screws to the top of the Helmet and, in addition to the 5" rail, adds a 15mm rod port in the rear for mounting an optional Axis Mini or other 15mm rod accessory. For additional accessory mounting, the helmet features 1/4"-20 threaded holes on all sides.
