The Zacuto Sony FX6 Z-Finder Recoil Pro is designed to outfit your FX6 camera for comfortable handheld shooting using the Z-Finder eyepiece. This allows you to set the balance point of your rig directly over your shoulder and shoot film- or ENG-style with your camera. The components work together providing support, control, adjustable balance, and accessory mounting that doesn't stress your camera's body. The Recoil Pro setup allows you to quickly rebalance for different lenses or accessories to help prevent fatigue while creating smooth handheld shots.
The included Z-Finder slides onto the Sony LCD and provides 2.5x magnification of the LCD for a larger, clearer image with diopter adjustment. The included Axis Micro and Fluid Rosette Joint allow you to adjust the angle of the Z-Finder. The VCT Pro is a padded shoulder support that mounts onto a VCT plate for quick tripod mounting and unmounting. It features a forward/back adjustable camera mounting plate, 15mm LWS rod clamps, rods, and an ARRI rosette. The included rosette trigger grip attaches to the rosette on the VCT Pro, and it allows you to move the Sony handgrip that came with your camera forward and off the camera, for better balance, while maintaining the electronic control over your camera with the included 13.5" long LANC cable. The top plate and handle mount allow you to mount additional accessories on your camera via 1/4"-20, 3/8"-16, and ARRI-style accessory mounting holes, or optional 15mm rods.
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.

The Trigger Grip for Sony FS5 & FX6 from Zacuto is an adjustable relocator for the camera grip of the Sony FS5 or FX6 camera. 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.
The Z-Finder for Sony FX6 from Zacuto is an optical viewfinder that uses 2.5x magnification to turn the camera's LCD monitor into a clear, easy-to-focus viewfinder. Designed specifically for use with the Sony FX6 LCD screen, the Z-Finder features a flip-up design and a diopter wheel for focusing and has a mounting bracket that attaches to the Sony 15mm rod mount. It includes two extender frames for farsighted use and can be used with separately available drop-in diopters for further correction. This finder's large, lightproof eyecup also increases the stability of handheld footage by adding a point of contact between the camera and the user's eye.
A built-in aluminum sun mask on the Z-Finder protects the LCD screen from sunlight. The viewfinder has an Anti-Fog disc installed to keep the view clear in humid or cold conditions and also includes an additional disc.

Use the rail to attach accessories like a monitor arm and use the 15mm brackets to support rod-mounted lens motors.

The Zacuto Sony FX6 Handle Mount screws into the handle unit of the camera and provides a 15mm rod port for attaching a 15mm EVF mount, such as the Zacuto Axis Micro or Mini. It screws into the handle tool-free and sturdy, and it positions at a 45° angle. The rod port is secured via a lever, also tool-free.
