Winter Special Offer from Zacuto

From Zacuto:

2013 has truly been a banner year at Zacuto with more than thirty individual accessories and rigs having been released since January.

The humble follow focus has had a complete facelift with the Zacuto Z-Drive and Tornado. Run’N’Gun camera rigs have reached new heights with the Marauder and Enforcer foldable DSLR kits. Every month this year has seen something new.

As the year starts to come to a close, Zacuto is getting ready to sit back and celebrate until the gears start cranking again for 2014. In honor of this groundbreaking year, Zacuto has put together a set of Winter Specials to thank their customers and showcase the biggest hits of 2013.

These Zacuto Specials will run from November 11th 2013, to January 3rd 2014. They are available from Zacuto or at your local authorized Zacuto dealer.

Check out these Winter Specials!

We appreciate Zacuto's sponsorship in the past and look forward to working with them again!

DSLR Recoil

The DSLR Recoil is the perfect rig for starting to build your Recoil rig. It includes our Mini DSLR Baseplate with 6.5” rods, a QR Shoulder Pad, and the Recoil Handgrip Kit – a unique mechanical handgrip follow focus set up. This Recoil kit is designed to be used with an offset monitor or viewfinder like the Zacuto EVF. (Not included.) Want to attach our Zacuto Z-Finder EVF Pro? Add an Axis EVF Mount.



Enforcer Foldable DSLR Rig

The Enforcer is the first of its kind, a foldable DSLR run’n’gun rig. It’s small enough to fit in your back pocket but when unfolded, it’s an extremely stable DSLR camera support.

Z DRive Tornado Combo

Z Drive Tornado Combo

The Zacuto Z-Drive is a unique, universal direct drive follow focus, designed with single operator shoulder mounted rigs in mind. Because it has a universal joint and no internal gears it can’t develop play. It attaches to a single 15mm diameter rod and curves away from the operator at a 60 degree angle creating space and distance from the lens for comfortable use when the camera is on your shoulder. This is the perfect follow focus for a Recoil kit set up (where the camera is directly over your shoulder) as it brings focus control further forward as well as down for comfortable operation. The Z-Drive can operate in four modes and is extremely adjustable for all size lenses. It can operate on the camera assistant or operators side of the rig positioned forward toward the lens or backward towards the tripod/dolly etc.. This makes for easy operation with a standard follow focus whip used on a tripod.

The Tornado grip connects to the Zacuto Z-Drive (not included) follow focus via a standard whip port. Due to the unique 60 degree curved shape of the Z-Drive and the comfortable horn shape of the Tornado grip, these products combine to create a unique mechanical follow focus handgrip perfect for single operator shoulder mounted work. The curve in the Z-Drive brings focusing forward so you can reach it comfortably and the Tornado attachment completes the setup.

Also available from Zacuto. (Not included in the Winter Specials)

The QR Shoulder Pad is a completely universal curved, padded shoulder pad system.
