The Zacuto EVA1 EVF Recoil Pro V2 is a shoulder rig designed specifically for the Panasonic EVA1. It is comprised of the Zacuto VCT Pro Baseplate, EVA1 Dual Trigger Grip, Top Handle with 15mm Rod Lock, and EVA1 Top Plate. This shoulder rig follows in the Zacuto Recoil Rig philosophy of placing the balance point at the shoulder, which places the camera behind the shoulder and the focus, monitoring, and camera controls forward from the shoulder.
The VCT Pro plate supports the camera and features 10" of forward/back balance adjustment, and it includes 15mm rods and rod clamps for rod-mounted accessories. The VCT Pro also enables your rig to go from your shoulder to tripod and back without removing accessories. The Dual Trigger Grip features a left and right articulating arm and relocates the EVA1's handgrip to the right articulating arm so you can use all the grips functions while comfortably supporting the rig on your shoulder. The EVA1 Top Plate mounts on your camera and provides the capability to attach accessories to your camera without stressing your camera's body. The included Top Handle and Rod Lock provide a contoured wood handle and 15mm rod clamp that you can mount to the Top Plate for improved ergonomics and LCD mounting options.
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.
