All Zacuto USA Specials are valid from September 1st- September 30th, 2011 through Zacuto or any Zacuto Reseller.

Gorilla Kit Specials: Buy a Striker DSLR Kit and Receive a Free Z-Finder Pro

The Striker is the most popular and versatile kit in our Gorilla Kit line. It features 3 points of contact that help shooters stabilize their shots when shooting video with DSLR cameras. The Striker uses a gunstock that presses up against your shoulder and a single handgrip so your other hand is free to focus the lens. With the simple turn of the many Zacuto red levers, the Striker is infinitely adjustable to work with any body type or shape. Any joint can adjust horizontally or vertically.  The handgrip and gunstock also use a ball and pivot joint so they can rotate 180 degrees for additional user comfort. Shooters also have the option of positioning the handgrip on either the left or right side depending on which hand they would like to use for focusing the lens.  The kit can also be configured to shoot with either your right or left eye.

With the free Z-Finder Pro, shooters will have an additional point of contact by pushing the Z-Finder against your eye. This will give you the perfect form factor for video. The Z-Finder comes with either a 2.5x or 3x focusable magnification, a 40mm diameter Zacuto optical designed lens, an eyecup for preventing extraneous light leakage, a diopter and a field of view perfectly matched to 3” LCD screens.

 

 

EVF Kit Specials: Buy a Zacuto Stinger or EVF Filmmaker Kit & Receive 50% Off an EVF Flip or EVF Pro

The EVF Filmmaker Kit combines new Zacuto products like the Zwiss Plate with classic Zacuto parts like the Universal Baseplate to produce a camera rig that features everything a shooter could possibly need while shooting with cameras like the AG-AF100, Sony F3 and FS100.  The EVF Filmmaker Kit was specifically designed to work with the Zacuto EVF but will also work with any competitor’s EVF as well. This camera support rig also includes a Z-Focus, lens gears and Zgrips Beefy for infinite handgrip configurations.  The EVF Filmmaker Kit’s shoulder pad mounts directly underneath the camera which shortens the length of the rig and adds to its stability.  When mounting to a tripod, simply remove the shoulder pad by flipping two levers.  Shooters have the option to use this rig like a traditional video camera by mounting the EVF on the side of the EVF Filmmaker kit with the EVF Rod Mount.  The Zwiss Plate allows you to mount a variety of accessories with the provided 1/4 20″ and 3/8 16″ holes, including professional batteries and the AJA Ki Pro Mini. The batteries and Ki Pro Mini can also act as a counter balance weight for even more stability. Like all Zacuto rigs, the EVF Filmmaker Kit is universal and can be used with any 15mm lightweight accessories.

With our September specials, customers have the option of receiving either the EVF Flip or EVF Pro at 50% off.  The Z-Finder EVF works with all pre-existing Z-finder models.  Customers who already own Z-Finder are advised to pick up the EVF Flip.  If you need a Z-Finder as well as an EVF, the EVF Pro includes the 3.2” monitor plus our Z-Finder Pro 2.5x.  For more information on the EVF, click here.

 

 

 

 

This Stinger Kit was developed to support shooters using an EVF or small on-board monitor with DSLR cameras.  This system includes our height-adjustable DSLR Baseplate, follow focus, dual handgrips, shoulder pad and 7-pound Z-Lite counterbalance weight for a fully balanced in-line rig.  The Stinger also comes with a DSLR Handle, which comes in handy for capturing low angle shots and transportation.  This camera support kit is designed to function with any DSLR camera or tripod and is compatible with any 15mm lightweight accessories.  The Stinger kit is quite similar to the Zacuto Double Barrel kit, except the Stinger is configured in line rather than offset.  The Stinger configuration is optimal for shooters working with a Z-Finder EVF.  This camera rig also includes a Zipgear Universal that can wrap around any lens to function with any .8 pitch gear 15mm based follow focus.  Additional Zipgear Universals can be purchased to use with other lenses.  The Stinger is guaranteed to maximize mobility, stability and comfort while shooting with DSLR cameras.

With our September specials, customers have the option of receiving either the EVF Flip or EVF Pro at 50% off.  The Z-Finder EVF works with all pre-existing Z-finder models.  Customers who already own Z-Finder are advised to pick up the EVF Flip.  If you need a Z-Finder as well as an EVF, the EVF Pro includes the 3.2” monitor plus our Z-Finder Pro 2.5x.  For more information on the EVF, click here.

  1. Still very expensive gear but heading in the right direction. They should be 80% cheaper than what they retail for.

      I know people think Zacuto is overpriced… but until you try to run a company and do as many things (including excellent customer service) I’m not sure it is appropriate to say that they’re overcharging by as much as you claim.
