Zacuto EVA1 EVF Recoil Pro

The shoulder-mounted Zacuto EVA1 EVF Recoil Pro for your Panasonic AU-EVA1 camera includes the Zacuto VCT Pro baseplate and the EVA1 Top plate. The EVA1 Top Plate has a built in Z-Rail perfect for adding the Zacuto Top Handle or Recoil Handle. Or if desired, you can reattach your Panasonic camera Handle to the plate. Our EVA1 Zgrip Trigger positions camera control at a comfortable, convenient handgrip. The Top Handle with 15mm rod lock allows you to easily mount an EVF with the Axis Mini.

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 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 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 screw option). It features removable and extendable 6.5" iris rods and rows of 1/4"-20 screw holes along the sides for accessories. It features quick release 15mm rod connections in the rear. The recessed rod mount offers maximum accessory capable space under your camera lens. 

EVA1 Zgrip Trigger - this articulating handgrip with M6 rosette incorporates our custom EVA1 handgrip adaptor to relocate the camera grip. It provides full articulation via lever. It may require a LANC extension cable. Trigger on/off control, lens aperture control, waveform, 1:1 zoom, zebras and more.

EVA1 Top plate - Top Plate for your EVA1 includes a built in Z-Rail, whichi is ideal for adding your Zacuto Top Handle or Recoil Handle. Or if desired, you can reattach your Panasonic camera Handle to the plate. The top plate has a multitude of 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 screw holes for mounting various accessories. 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. If you need to attach top rods to your rig, you can add optional 15mm Z-Locks to the top plate for top rods.

Top Handle with 15mm Rod Lock - This slim Top Handle has multiple 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 screw holes for mounting various accessories. The 15mm Rod Lock gives a side facing rod port for mounting the Axis Mini or a Zamerican arm.



Zacuto Axis Mini

The Zacuto Axis Mini is designed to attach to the top of your camera set up, leaves plenty of room at the lens for focusing, and will work with a wide range of lenses. It can be adjusted with one hand while the camera rig is on your shoulder. The Axis Mini has extensive articulation for use with a variety of cameras, both shoulder mounted or in tripod operating position.

The Axis Mini attaches to your rig via a 15mm rod port at the top of a kit positioned perpendicular to your camera lens. Slide the Axis Mini into the 15mm rod port and clamp into place. The Axis Mini attaches to the EVF via a secure rosette mount.

The Axis Mini has three red tension levers that are controlled independently with 360 degree motion. Release all three levers to completely reposition the mount or release just one to make single segment adjustments. You can dial in the exact amount of tension needed at each lever to adjust on the fly. 

NOTE: If you are left eye shooter an additional extension is required (not included).



Zacuto Gratical Eye Micro-OLED EVF

The Zacuto Gratical Eye Micro-OLED EVF weighs only 14 oz and fits in the palm of your hand. In order to keep the unit small and compact, it features a 2-pin Lemo jack for power, a single SDI input, and a USB port for firmware updates. Gratical Eye customers can enjoy free firmware updates from Zacuto, including fixes and additions, for life.

Along with the full suite of Zacuto EVF firmware (full scopes, LUTs, multi level peaking, and more), the Gratical Eye has two unique features – an external tally light and a proximity screen saver sensor. If the sensor does not detect anything for 7 seconds (time is user adjustable) the screen will go black and then wake up instantly when it detects motion. After 1 hour of being idle, the Eye will go into auto shutoff mode, saving you power. 

At the core of the Gratical Eye is a powerful, cutting edge FPGA dual core processor. This processor supports our wide array of professional features including Vectorscope, Waveform (3D), Histogram, LUT import/export/create, etc.

The Gratical Eye SDI EVF features a state-of-the-art Micro-OLED screen. With 5.4 million pixels squeezed onto a screen only 0.61” diagonal, you get a hugely expanded contrast range for the truest image possible. The Micro-OLED screen offers vivid, vibrant colors and true black, as each pixel is lit individually. The Gratical Eye has HD-SDI input only with resolutions up to 1080p/60.
