Sony FS5 Recoil Pro

The Sony FS5 Recoil Pro shoulder-mounted rig includes the Zacuto VCT Pro baseplate, the Rosette Zgrip Trigger to relocate your Sony FS5 handgrip, a 13.5" LANC extension cable, the FS5 Top Plate, and the Axis Mini for Sony FS5 which can be used with either your Gratical HD, Eye or your Sony LCD monitor with the optional Zacuto 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 – this baseplate has a sliding 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 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 screw option). It has removable and extendable 6.5" iris rods and rows of 1/4"-20 screw holes along the sides for accessories. It has quick release 15mm rod connections in the rear. The recessed rod mount offers maximum accessory capable space under your camera lens.

Rosette Zgrip Trigger- the most adjustable handgrip for cameras with a rosette based relocatable grip. It allows for single-handed 360° rotation with the simple press of a trigger. Flip it down for a low, rock-solid handgrip. Raise it up for more of an Aaton style position. Or quickly flip it all the way up to set your camera flat on the ground or for storing in a case. The Rosette ZGrip Trigger attaches to your rig or camera via an M6 Rosette - the industry standard. At the end of the grip is another M6 rosette for the grip from your servo zoom lens or camera.

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.

Axis Mini for Sony FS5 - Attaches to the 15mm rod port on the Sony FS5 Top Plate to mount either a rosette mounted EVF like the Gratical HD or the Sony monitor itself. Adjustable positioning for shoulder mounted shooting or tripod shooting.



Zacuto Gratical HD Electronic Viewfinder 

The Zacuto Gratical HD Electronic Viewfinder supports high pixel density with unparalleled resolution, true blacks, gamma and contrast range. The Gratical HD has 5.4 million pixels on a 0.61" diagonal screen no bigger than the size of your thumbnail.

Features (2) HDMI and (2) SDI ports with cross conversion from HDMI to SDI. Weather resistant covers prevent moisture or debris from getting in open ports. 

The internal field of view delivers a large image, but not such that the eye has to roam to see the entire image at once. It features a built-in -1 to +4 diopter range and Zacuto’s latest anti-fog coating formula. An auto-closing eyecup door is designed to automatically prevent sun damage without any action by the operator.

Mount the Gratical HD via a 1/4"-20 rosette on the side, or a 1/4"-20 screw hole in the bottom.
