The Zacuto Sony FS5/FS5 II EVF Recoil Pro V2 is a shoulder rig that is compatible with the Sony FS5 and FS5 II cameras. When purchasing the Zacuto Sony FS5/FS5 II EVF Recoil Pro V2, you will receive the Zacuto VCT Pro Baseplate, as well as the Sony FS5 Trigger Grip, a FS5 Top Plate, the VCT Pro Baseplate, an Axis Mini EVF mount, and a LANC extension cable - everything you need to head out on a shoot with your camera ready and secure on your shoulder. To ensure that the Zacuto Sony FS5/FS5 II EVF Recoil Pro V2 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.

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 compatible 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 all cameras 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.

Sony FS5 Trigger Grip

The Sony FS5 Trigger Grip from Zacuto is an adjustable relocator for the Sony FS5 camera grip. It's designed to attach to camera supports offering an ARRI-standard rosette, including the Zacuto VCT Pro baseplate. The entire unit can be rotated a full 360° at the quick press of a lever with no need to unscrew a knob or lever as with standard handgrips, and it can also be adjusted in length by loosening another lever.

FS5 Top Plate

Offering the ability to seamlessly integrate accessories into the FS5 shooting workflow, the FS5 Top Plate from Zacuto comprises a dedicated plate with a built-in 15mm side-facing rod lock to permit attaching various 15mm rod accessories to the camera. Included with the top plate is a separate 3"-long 15mm rod for mounting accessories, such as the FS5's LCD with attached Z-Finder. Both sides of the top plate also incorporate one 3/8"-16 and five 1/4"-20 threaded mounts, as well as custom-sized screw holes for relocating the Sony cable holder and film plane marker.

Axis Mini Monitor Mount for Sony FS5

The Axis Mini for Sony FS5 is the most adjustable ENG style mount for the Sony FS5 Monitor, giving you full 360º motion with four adjustment points. Designed to attach to the FS5 top plate, it leaves plenty of room at the lens for focusing and will work with the widest of lenses. It can easily be adjusted with one hand while the rig is on your shoulder. The Axis Mini has extensive articulation for use in a variety of positions,both shoulder mounted in a next generation recoil or in tripod operating position. It is very small and quick to install and remove.

The Axis Mini for Sony FS5 attaches to your rig via a 15 mm rod. Slide the Axis Mini into side facing 15 mm rod port and clamp into place. If you don't have a side facing rod port you can get the FS5 top plate. It attaches to the FS5 LCD with the included FS5 to 1/4 20 rosette adapter. Alternately, you can remove the adapter and attach the Axis Mini directly to a Gratical.

The Axis Mini has three red tension levers that are controlled independently with 360 degree motion. Release all three levers to completely reposition the mount or release just one to make single segment adjustments. You can dial in the exact amount of tension needed at each lever to adjust on the fly. Just grab and move.
