View your compositions comfortably and accurately and support your RED camera with the Zacuto RED EVF Recoil Gratical Eye Bundle. This shoulder rig is designed to support RED DSMC2 camera bodies such as the RAVEN, WEAPON, EPIC WEAPON (EPIC-W), SCARLET WEAPON (SCARLET-W), MONSTRO, HELIUM, and GEMINI. It is comprised of the Zacuto VCT Pro Baseplate, a RED rod riser, a RED Top Plate, Dual Shorty Trigger Grips, a Top Handle, a 3" Z-Rail, a Gratical Eye Micro OLED SDI EVF, an Axis Mini, and a Z-Rail Axis Mount.
This EVF shoulder rig follows in the Zacuto Recoil Rig philosophy of setting the balance point at the shoulder, placing the camera behind the shoulder and the focus, monitoring, and camera controls forward. The rig is designed to transfer comfortably from your shoulder to a tripod and back without removing accessories.
Zacuto Gratical Eye Micro OLED EVF
With the Gratical Eye, Zacuto takes the highly regarded 0.61", 1280 x 1024 micro OLED panel found in their Gratical HD and packs into an EVF that weighs just 14 oz and fits into the palm of your hand. In order to keep the EVF small and compact, it features a round design and it equipped with only a single 3G-SDI input that supports up to 1080p60 video, a 2-pin LEMO power connector, and a USB port for firmware updates. Not content at being just a professional-grade EVF that produces natural looking images with a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, the Gratical Eye is equipped with a FPGA dual core processor to support the full set of monitoring and image analysis features found on the larger Gratical HD, including LUT support, vectorscope and waveform displays, and peaking, which are controlled using a joystick-style button on the back of the unit. With its compact size and full feature set, the Gratical Eye is an EVF ideally suited for use with professional SDI cameras and rigs using external power solutions.

Zacuto Axis Mini EVF Mount
A versatile and adjustable means for attaching a rosette-mounted EVF to your camera, the Zacuto Axis Mini is an ENG-style mount that is designed to attach to the top of your camera setup and provide you with ample room for adjusting focus or working with large lenses. It attaches directly to rigs fitted with a 15mm rod port and then connects with EVFs, such as the Gratical HD, using a secure 1/4"-20 rosette mount, or can also be used with 1/4"-20 screw mount EVFs with the separate Quad Rail for mounting.
Once attached, the Axis Mini's adjustable design utilizes four main pivoting points, which can spin a full 360° and are controlled using independent tension levers. With all levers unlocked, you can freely position the EVF at will using a single hand, or specific sections can be tightened down for fine-tuned adjustments on a single axis. Additionally, the articulation can be configured to work seamlessly with both shoulder-mounted rigs as well as for tripod-based shooting.
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.
