The Zacuto Sony FS5/FS5 II EVF Recoil with Dual Trigger Grips is a shoulder rig with a dual, 360° rotating handgrip system that is compatible with the Sony PXW-FS5 and FS5 II cameras. When purchasing the Zacuto Sony FS5/FS5 II EVF Recoil with Dual Trigger Grips, you will receive the Zacuto VCT Pro Baseplate, as well as the FS5 Dual Trigger Grips, a FS5 Top Plate, and a LANC extension cable. To ensure that the rig is balanced correctly, Zacuto put this Zacuto Sony FS5/FS5 II EVF Recoil with Dual Trigger Grips 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.

Please Note: This rig requires the addition of an onboard monitor or Zacuto EVF.

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 / FS5 MK II Dual Trigger Grips

The Sony FS5 / FS5 MK II Dual Trigger Grips from Zacuto are a 15mm LWS rod mount handgrip set featuring one wooden handgrip and one grip relocator for the Sony FS5 and FS5 MK II camera grips. Each can be individually rotated a full 360° at the press a dedicated lever — there is no need to screw or unscrew any knob or lever but rather just press it on the fly. Furthermore, the wooden component of the wooden handgrip can also be adjusted forward and backward at the press of another lever, and same goes for your camera grip once you attach it.

The handgrip and relocator are secured into sleeves and can be adjusted in length within the sleeves by loosening a corresponding lever for each one. They can be adjusted from 13 to 16" in length, measuring from the base to the bottom of the handgrip. Scale markings are available on top to allow you to easily match up the positions of the handgrips. The handgrips are fully removable and you can incorporate a second wooden handgrip at a later time to alternate with the relocator.

Key Features

  • 15mm LWS rod mount handgrip set
  • Includes a wooden handgrip and a grip relocator for the Sony FS5 / FS5 MK II camera grip
  • 360° rotation at the press of a lever — no screwing/unscrewing
  • Forward/backward adjustment at the press of another lever
  • Length adjustable
  • Scale markings for easily matching the positions of the handgrips

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.
