The Zacuto Z-Finder Recoil with Dual Trigger Grips kit for the Panasonic EVA1 combines a shoulder-mount rig with a dual, 360° rotating handgrip system and a 1.8x magnifying Z-Finder loupe with diopter wheel. The Z-Finder EVF loupe magnifies your camera's viewfinder and comes with a 3" rod and rod mount for easy viewing adjustment on your rig. This Recoil rig distributes your focus, monitoring, and camera controls forward, creating an even balance on your shoulder.
The kit also includes a VCT Pro baseplate for handheld or tripod mounting, independently adjustable Dual Trigger Grips, a Top Plate for attaching your Panasonic EVA1 handle or another top handle, and a Z-Rail Axis Mount which attaches the Z-Finder EVF or a separately available Axis Mini to the rig.
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 Panasonic EVA1 Dual Trigger Grips
The Panasonic EVA1 Dual Trigger Grips from Zacuto are a 15mm LWS rod mount handgrip set featuring one wooden handgrip and one grip relocator for the Panasonic EVA1 camera grip. Each can be individually rotated a full 360° at the press a dedicated lever — there is no need to screw or unscrew any knob or lever but rather just press it on the fly. Furthermore, the wooden component of the wooden handgrip can also be adjusted forward and backward at the press of another lever, and same goes for your camera grip once you attach it.
The handgrip and relocator are secured into sleeves and can be adjusted in length within the sleeves by loosening a corresponding lever for each one. They can be adjusted from 13 to 16" in length, measuring from the base to the bottom of the handgrip. Scale markings are available on top to allow you to easily match up the positions of the handgrips. The handgrips are fully removable and you can incorporate a second wooden handgrip at a later time to alternate with the relocator.

Zacuto EVA1 Z-Finder
The Zacuto EVA1 Z-Finder is specifically made for use with the Panasonic EVA1 camera. The flip-up Z-Finder loupe securely mounts on your camera's LCD screen and prevents ambient light from interfering with your view of the monitor. It forms a sturdy connection to the LCD, which gives you an additional point of stability when hand-holding the camera. The Z-Finder's design permits quickly flipping the finder up and out of the way, so the LCD can be used as a monitor, without removing the finder from the camera.
The built-in adjustable diopter and included extender frames accommodate operators that need a diopter setting of -4 to 0; however, optional drop-in diopters or -1, +1, +2, +3, and +4 are available from Zacuto to extend the range of correction. Included with the finder are a lens cap, sun mask, protective boot, and dust cover. The included 3" long 15mm rod enables attaching the Z-Finder to the EVA's mount.
Zacuto Z-Rail Axis Mount with 15mm Rod Port
The Zacuto Z-Rail Axis Mount with 15mm Rod Port is an excellent choice for mounting your Axis Mini EVF Mount onto a camera outfitted with a Z-Rail. It works well with the Zacuto C200 and EVA top plate, and the rod clamp projects forward and up at a 45° angle so that the Axis Mini EVF mount is placed in the ideal working position.
The mount is made from anodized aluminum, with the aluminum providing a good balance between weight and strength and the anodizing providing corrosion protection. Spring-loaded locking levers enable tightening or loosening of either the rod clamp or the Z-Rail clamp, even when you can't rotate the levers fully.
