The Zacuto Indie Recoil Pro V2 is a shoulder rig that is compatible with a wide variety of cameras, but the way the rig is built makes it specifically suitable for mirrorless cameras and DSLRs. When purchasing this unit, you will receive the Zacuto VCT Pro Baseplate, as well as the QR Riser, a Wooden Trigger Grip, a Half Cage Rail, and the Axis Mini EVF Mount. 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 and features 10" of forward/back balance adjustment, and it 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 QR Riser allows you to raise your DSLR or mirrorless camera to the proper height to the use rod-mounted accessories. The Wooden Trigger Grip features an ARRI-standard rosette for mounting and levers that allow you to easily adjust the length and angle of the arm and the rotation of the wooden handgrip. The halfcage attaches to the VCT Pro to provide protection and accessory mounting points to your shoulder rig. It features a wooden handgrip, and a top Z-Rail which allows you to mount the included Top Handle with built-in Z-Rail and Cold Shoe Mount for increased ergonomics and accessory mounting.

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.

Wooden Trigger Grip

Halfcage Rail for Zacuto VCT Universal Baseplate

The Zacuto Halfcage Rail attaches to the Zacuto VCT Universal baseplate and creates a solid, universal cage structure around the side and top of your camera. It features a contoured wood side grip, and the built-in double-sided Z-Rail offers you the ability to add an optional top handle or Zacuto Coldshoe lock (not included). The side grip incorporates fifteen 1/4"-20 threaded accessory mounting points.

An included 5" Z-Rail attaches along the side of the VCT Universal baseplate with two 1/4"-20 screws. The Halfcage Rail then attaches that 5" Z-rail via a spring-loaded quick-release. At its most compact height, the Halfcage Rail has a clearance of 5.5". Four Allen head screws enable you to adjust the height to a 9" clearance. The side grip incorporates a 15mm rod port for attaching accessories.

  • The contoured wood handle is made of hand-tooled maple.
  • You can adjust the clearance height from 5.5 to 9" to accommodate a variety of different cameras.
  • The double-sided top Z-Rail allows you to use a Zacuto Coldshoe Lock (not included) to secure your camera to the Halfcage by usng your camera's cold shoe. Please confirm compatibility with Zacuto prior to attempting this.
  • The Halfcage Rail features a special magnetic indentation along the side for storing the included Allen key.
  • Both locking levers, the QR for the Z-Rail and the integrated 15mm rod clamp, are spring-loaded. This allows you to tighten the clamps fully, even when you can't rotate the levers through a full 360°.

Top Handle with Z-Rail and Cold Shoe Mount

The Zacuto Top Handle with Z-Rail and Cold Shoe Mount is compatible with a large variety of accessories, thanks to the single 3/8"-16 and multiple 1/4"-20 threaded mounting holes. The Top Handle offers a built-in Z-Rail and cold shoe, alone with an orientable Z-Rail clamp. The entire unit has a slim design, and the wood grip is made to fit comfortably in your hand. 

The Top Handle attaches to any Z-Rail dovetail, and the Z-Rail jaw clamp can be oriented multiple ways to work on horizontal or vertical Z-Rails. The spring-loaded locking lever enables tightening or loosening of the clamp even when you don't have room to fully rotate the lever. It releases quickly with the flip of a mini ratcheting lever. This is well suited for mounting to the GH5 cage or using on your Recoil rigs.

  • Zacuto dovetail accessories are adjustable to work with Z-Rail, NATO, SWAT, RED, Picatinny, and Wooden Camera rails.
