Recommended Products



The Canon C300 Mark II Helmet Kit includes the C300 MK II Helmet, a 3" Z-Rail, and the Recoil Handle top grip. The C300 Mark II Helmet is a mini cage designed to mount directly to the top of the Canon C300 Mark II in place of the Canon's supplied top helmet and handle.It provides multiple 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 mounting screw holes to which you can securely attach a variety of accessories.

The Helmet attaches to the camera via (4) screws: (1) screw on top and (3) additional screws on the sides to mount it firmly in place. Longer screws for attaching the helmet to the camera body are included. There are also spots on the helmet to accommodate your Canon microphone holder. You can also add a riser (not included) in the front to accept rods.

Recoil Handle

The Recoil Handle attaches to the Helmet via the included 3" Z-Rail. The Recoil Handle includes (2) coldshoe mounts (one vertical, one horizontal), plus a 15mm quick-release rod port and (2) 3/8-16 threaded screw hole mounts. You can convert them to 1/4-20 with a brass collet (sold separately). The (2) coldshoe mounts secure with a quick-release clamp onto the shoe of your camera accessory. Mount two cold shoe items at once with a half turn of a Zacuto lever. No unnecessary winding of the annoying plastic round tie-down wheel is necessary.

The 15mm quick-release rod port at the front of the handle permits you to mount your EVF assembly. You can also use this or one of the (2) cold shoe mounts to attach your gear motor to an optional spud.

The top handle of the Zacuto Helmet is hand-tooled from fine, three-quarter maple. Secure your hands using the comfortable indentations for your fingers on the grip.

Zacuto's helmet and recoil handle allow you to quickly remove the handle for storing. It also allows for sliding the handle along the Z-rail to achieve a balanced camera.


This 3" Z-Rail (which is also a NATO standard size) can pair with any Z-Rail mounted accessory. It allows you to slide along the rail in order to balance your camera to suit your configuration of accessories.

Purchase a second Z-Rail and you can swap accessories between Camera A and Camera B. 

The Z-Rail will fit your RED EPIC, RED SCARLET, Canon C300 or C500 (with the Helmet), Blackmagic Design cameras, and many more.

Zacuto Cold Shoes

Unlike traditional shoe-mounted accessories, which often include a knurled knob for locking, the Zacuto cold shoe mount functions like a vise. After you slide in the accessory shoe, twist the red locking lever. This secures the accessory by sliding the walls of the shoe closer. 

NOTE: Cameras, rods, and other accessories are sold separately.
