The Sony FS5 Z-Finder Recoil shoulder-mounted rig includes our VCT Pro baseplate, the FS5 Grip relocator for the Sony FS5 handgrip, a 34.3 cm LANC extension cable, the FS5 Top Plate with 7.6 cm F/F rod, and the Zacuto FS5 Z-Finder.
This is a Next Generation Recoil rig designed for optimal balance and comfort when shoulder mounted or on a tripod. With lenses and cameras being similar weights, the balance point is where the lens meets the camera body. In a Recoil rig, the balance point needs to be directly over your shoulder which puts the camera behind you. This requires focus, monitoring and camera controls to be relocated forward, creating a lighter and shorter rig.
VCT Pro Baseplate – this baseplate has a sliding top plate for quickly removing the camera from the rig or fast len changes, a built-in, curved shoulder pad, a v-wedge tripod connector (with ¼” 20 and 3/8" 16 screw option). It has removable and extendable 16.5 cm iris rods and rows of ¼” 20 screw holes along the sides for accessories. It has quick release 15mm rod parts in the rear. The recessed rod mount offers maximum accessory capable space under your camera lens.
Rosette Grip Relocator – fully articulating Grip relocator with rod cap. Attaches to a single 15mm rod with a Zwivel mount that can be set at multiple different angles for comfort and ease of use. Relocates the Sony grip to your hand for recoil shooting. Includes a 34.3 cm LANC extension cable.
FS5 Top Plate – Designed to fit around the Sony top handle, this Top Plate gives you a side facing 15mm rod lock and multiple mounting screw holes.
FS5 Z-Finder – The FS5 Z-Finder comes with a flip up frame designed to slide onto the FS5 LCD and a locking mount to attach to the Top Plate.
