The Zacuto Recoil Shoulder Rig for Sony F5/F55 features a base plate specifically designed for the Sony F5/F55, Zacuto's QR shoulder pad, and Zgrips V3 lightweight handgrips. This system allows you to quickly and easily move from shoulder rig configuration to tripod-mounted camera and back again. The baseplate provides 15mm support rods, which provide the proper rod to lens distance for matte boxes and lens accessories. The Zgrips V3 mount to the 15mm rods as well, and the shoulder pad allows you to comfortably support the weight of the camera.

The shoulder pad features a QR design that allows you to quickly attach or detach the cushion from the bottom of your camera set up, so you can mount directly to a tripod head with a compatible QR system. The support arms and handgrips are independently adjustable, allowing you simply adjust your position from shot to shot. The Zgrips V3 mount to the 15mm rods and lock or release by turning a large propeller shaped lever, making it quick to change configurations. The rig is made primarily from anodized aluminum for its durability, corrosion resistance, and strength.

  • Baseplate for Sony F5/F55

    The Zacuto Baseplate for Sony F5/F55 is a rod support system designed specifically for the Sony PMW-F5 & PMW-F55 cameras. It provides the correct distance between the 15mm rods and the center of the lens allowing you to properly mate standard, rod-mounted matteboxes and follow focus units and helps prevent misalignment that can cause stress or binding to your lenses.

    The baseplate features 1/4" and 3/8" camera tie-down screws that float in a channel until tightened to the camera allowing you to adjust the balance of the Sony F5/F55 on the baseplate. The two included 15mm support rods feature threaded ends to accommodate rod extensions. Four, ratcheting locking levers hold the rods securely in place, and because the levers are racheted, you can lock or loosen the support rods even when there is little room to move the levers. The plate also features both 1/4" and 3/8" threaded holes for mounting to a tripod. The threaded holes are part of a plate that slides forward or backward to help balance the camera on the tripod head.

  • Zgrips V3 Lightweight Support Handgrips (Black)

    The Zgrips V3 Lightweight Support Handgrips (Black) from Zacuto work with cameras such as Varicam, HVX200, Red One and more. The Zgrips attach to the 15mm rods with the standard 60mm spacing between them that are sold with it. They offer a dual and adjustable handgrip system featuring a scissor split movement that provides comfort and great user capabilities.

    The handgrips themselves are fully articulating. For unencumbered tripod use, the arms quick release off by flipping a lever. The Zgrips are extremely durable and are built to handle an incredible amount of pressure and stress. The V3 grip design is a larger robust design that rests on the operator's fist to add greater stability.

  • QR Shoulder Pad

    The Zacuto QR Shoulder Pad is shaped to fit comfortably on your shoulder, providing a quick release (QR) camera-mounted pad to cushion your shoulder from the camera. The gel pad cushion is made from Akton Polymer, which absorbs shock and vibration and retains its properties in temperature extremes far exceeding what you or I could tolerate.

    The included QR plate attaches to a camera or baseplate, and you slide the plate into the QR clamp on the shoulder pad. This allows you to easily adjust the camera's position on the shoulder pad for balance and comfort. The QR system also allows you to quickly remove the shoulder pad and mount the camera to a tripod with a compatible QR mechanism.
