The Zacuto Indie Recoil V2 is a shoulder rig that is compatible with mirrorless cameras or DSLRs. When purchasing this rig, you will receive the VCT Pro Baseplate, which is at the heart of the unit. The lightweight baseplate has a built-in gel shoulder pad that is able to secure onto VCT-14 tripod quick release plates. You will not need to use any tools when adjusting the balance of the camera on this rig - simply use the movable top plate to place the camera forward or backwards to balance it as you need. The balance point is placed directly over your shoulder, allowing you to use this smaller and lighter rig without the need of counterweights. Qt the front of the baseplate, you have 15mm rods that can be used for mounting 15mm LWS accessories. 

All rig components—the QR Riser, Zgrip Z-Mount Zwivel Handgrip, Half Cage, and Recoil Handle—feature spring-loaded levers for quick assembly and disassembly. With practice, the entire rig can be dismantled in a matter of seconds for easy packing after striking the set.

Note: The Recoil rig is designed so the camera is moved behind the operator's field-of-view while shoulder-mounted. In order to properly monitor recorded video, a separately available external monitor or electronic viewfinder is required.

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.

Zgrip Z-Mount Zwivel Handgrip

The Zgrip Z-Mount Zwivel is an articulating handgrip that comes with a black 4.5 inch rod and a Z-Mount Zwivel. It easily mounts to any 15mm rod with the quick-release handgrip. The Zwivel allows you to change the angle between the two 15mm rods. The Zwivel has one lever which controls the both 15mm holes. In order to change the angle of the rods, just loosen the single lever and the internal spring separates the parts for you to adjust to the desired angle.

  • The Zwivel allows you to change the angle between two 15mm rods by loosening the single lever that controls both the 15mm holes.
  • The Handgrip supports all 15mm rods with the quick release handgrip.
  • The integrated spring separates the parts for you to achieve the desired angle between the rods.

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°.

Recoil Handle

The Zacuto Recoil Handle is a maple-wood-lined handgrip that mounts to a Z-Rail or compatible mounting rail. This provides a comfortable yet secure handle for your camera rig, and the rail-style mounting allows you to adjust the handle along the length of the rail to improve your rigs balance. It features two cold shoe mounts (one vertical and one horizontal) and secures both mounts with a single lever. The integrated 1/4"-20 threaded mounting hole, and 15mm rod clamps further expand on the Recoil Handle's usefulness.

Machined aluminum construction provides a balance of strength and weight, and the unit is anodized for corrosion and wear resistance. Large, spring-loaded locking levers provide a good grip and the capability of tightening the clamps without rotating the levers throughout the entire 360° range.

Key Features

  • The Recoil Handle clamps securely along the length of a Zacuto Z-Rail, allowing you to adjust the balance of your camera or camera rig. In addition to the Z-Rail, the handle is compatible with a variety of rails including: NATO, SWAT, RED, Picatinny, and Wooden Camera. You can mount the handle with the cold shoes or the rod clamps.
  • The maple-wood grip linings remain cool in hot weather and are generally considered to be more comfortable to hold. The wood is tooled to provide finger slots for increased comfort and grip.
  • The two cold shoes incorporate built-in stoppers and a single lever clamps both shoes simultaneously, securing your accessories. A 1/4"-20 accessory mounting point is threaded into the side of the cold shoe mounts.
  • Two offset 15mm rod clamps allow you to mount rods at right angles to each other. Each rod clamp features its own spring-loaded locking lever.
