Welcome to the Next Generation Recoil®
The universal solution for all cameras
The core of the Next Generation Recoil Rigs is the VCT Universal baseplate. Zacuto’s reinvented VCT style baseplate is universal for all cameras from a tiny mirrorless to a camera the size of an ALEXA and everything in between. This is the last baseplate you’ll ever need. Next Generation Recoil rigs are designed for optimal balance and comfort when shoulder mounted or on a tripod. With lenses and cameras being similar weights, the balance point is approximately where the lens meets the camera body.
Zacuto’s universal Next Generation Recoil rigs are all about BALANCE! You cannot shoot with a rig that is not balanced or you’ll be fighting fatigue on long shoots. Recoil rigs place the balance point directly over your shoulder, pushing focus and monitoring further forward, creating a lighter and shorter rig.The Gratical HD Micro-OLED EVF is an integral piece of any Zacuto Recoil rig. Electronic viewfinders, like the Gratical HD EVF, are a pivotal tool in any filmmakers bag, providing accessibility, stability, focusability and so much more. The Gratical HD EVF is a complete electronic viewfinder that incorporates the very latest in OLED and processing technology.
Zacuto brought five different engineering companies together to create the Gratical EVF, a new micro OLED electronic viewfinder concept. Electronic viewfinders are a pivotal tool in any filmmakers bag, providing accessibility, stability, focusability, and so much more. Unlike a standard electronic viewfinder, with the Gratical HD EVF, Gratical X EVF, & Gratical Eye EVF you can trust you’re seeing a realistic visualization of your final image. The processing power and sharpness of the Zacuto Gratical electronic viewfinder far surpasses all other EVF units on the market.
Zacuto offers three Gratical EVF options; the Gratical HD, Gratical X & Gratical Eye. All units start with a 5.4 million pixel micro-OLED display, high quality precision optics with a built in diopter, and a powerful FPGA dual core processor.
