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.

The recessed rod mount offers maximum accessory capable space under your camera lens.

At the back of the plate is a 15mm rod port for a Zamerican arm or other 15mm accessory. It is also ideal for relocating your Panasonic LCD on an optional articulating arm.
