The Zacuto EVA1 Z-Finder Recoil Pro V2 is a shoulder rig that is compatible with the Panasonic EVA1 camera. When purchasing this rig, you will receive the Zacuto VCT Pro Baseplate, as well as the EVA1 Trigger Grip, the Z-Finder Loupe for EVA1, the Z-Rail Axis Mount with 15mm Rod Port, and the EVA1 Top Plate - everything you need to head out on a shoot with your camera ready and secure on your shoulder. To ensure that the rig is balanced correctly, Zacuto put this rig together following their Recoil Rig philosophy. This means that the balance point is placed directly over your shoulder. The camera body is behind your shoulder, which relocates focus, monitoring, and camera controls forward. This system makes for a lighter, shorter, and properly balanced rig.

The VCT Pro plate supports the camera with 10" of forward/back balance adjustment, and includes 15mm rods and rod clamps for rod-mounted accessories. The VCT Pro also enables your rig to go from your shoulder to tripod and back without removing accessories. The Trigger Grip relocates the EVA1's handgrip to an articulating arm, so you can use all the grip's functions while comfortably supporting the rig on your shoulder. The EVA1 Top Plate mounts on your camera and provides the capability to attach accessories to your camera without stressing its body. The included Top Handle and Rod Lock provide a contoured wood handle and 15mm rod clamp that you can mount onto the Top Plate for improved ergonomics and LCD mounting options.

VCT Pro Baseplate

The Zacuto VCT Pro Baseplate features a built-in curved shoulder pad, an Arri M6 rosette, quick-release 6.5" rods and lightweight rod ports. The v-wedge tripod connector is compatibe with the VCT14 tripod adapter plates or can be connected to your tripod quick release plate via the 1/4-20" and 3/8-16" screw holes. The Pro baseplate is compatible with al lcameras including Canon EOS C-series, Sony FS4 and FS7, AJA CION, BlackMagic, RED cameras, ARri Alexa and Amira, DSLRs, Mirrorless and more.

The red sliding top plate offers easy adjust-ability for lens changes, removing your camera, and balancing your rig correctly on your shoulder. This sliding plate combined with a double screw track offers 10” of camera balance sliding range. You can quickly release your camera from the rig by sliding the red plate completely off and using our VCT Pro Dock to quickly transition it to a tripod, slider, etc.

The lightweight, adjustable rod mount is set far back in the plate, offering plenty of accessory-capable area under the camera lens. This allows you to position your camera further back on the plate, keeping the balance point of your rig directly over your shoulder. The sliding track of the rod riser offers 25mm of vertical adjustment. (Alternate Tall Rod Riser offering up to 45mm of vertical adjustment - for RED cameras - is available. Contact sales@zacuto.com for more information.)

The shoulder pad portion of the VCT Universal is set as far forward on the plate as possible, also to maximize your accessory capable rod area and aid with balance. The VCT Universal Baseplate is the core of our Next Generation Recoil rigs, designed for balance and comfort for every camera.

The back of the plate has a 15mm rod port for a Zamerican arm, or any other 15mm accessory you need to include. This makes it ideal for relocating the Panasonic LCD on an articulating arm.

Zacuto EVA1 Z-Finder

The Zacuto EVA1 Z-Finder is specificlly designed to fit the Panosonic EVA1 camera's included monitor. To use the Z-Finder, you simply need to slide it onto the EVA1 LCD and it will lock securely into place. If needed, the Z-Finder can be popped on and off the frame for quick shooting, and you also have the ability to flip the Z-Finder up without it needing to be removed from the frame. It is a practical tool to have when on a shoot with producers, clients, or directors. If they want to see into the viewfinder, you can simply flip it open - no adjusting required.

You can also pop off the Z-Finder and use the EVA1 LCD as a monitor. This Z-Finder will magnify the LCD screen by 1.8x and has a diopter for specific focus tuning. It cuts out any extraneous light and offers an initial point of stability by pressing your eye against our comfy, large eyecup. The EVA1 Z-finder comes with a 40mm diameter Zacuto optical designed lens, anti-fog coated protective covers, and the mounting system designed specifically for the EVA1 LCD. The diopter allows you to dial in the focus to match your eye. If you need extra focal points you can use the included Z-Finder Extender Frames. These are semi-permanent stackable frames that attach to the body of the Z-Finder and extend the Z-Finder glass further away from the LCD screen for people who are farsighted. The diopter range with the included lens and extender frames is -4.0 to 0.0.
