Zacuto EVF Recoil Pro with Dual Trigger Grips for Canon C300 Mark II
The Zacuto EVF Recoil Pro with Dual Trigger Grips is a shoulder rig designed specifically for the Canon C300 Mark II. It is comprised of the VCT Pro Baseplate, the Canon Dual Trigger Grip, and the C300 Mark II Helmet Kit which includes a Recoil Handle top grip and a 3" Z-Rail. This shoulder rig follows in the Zacuto Recoil Rig philosophy of placing the balance point at the shoulder, which places the camera behind the shoulder and the focus, monitoring, and camera controls forward from the shoulder.
The VCT Pro plate supports the camera, features 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 Canon Dual Trigger Grip features left and right articulating arms. The left handgrip provides a comfortable, contoured wood finish, and the C300's handgrip is relocated to the right articulating arm so you can use all the grip's functions while comfortably supporting the rig on your shoulder.
The C300 Mark II Helmet kit consists of a 3" Z-Rail and a Recoil Handle top grip with multiple 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 screw holes, a 15mm quick release port, and two cold shoe mounts. The top grip replaces the handle on top of your C300 and provides improved ergonomics and the capability to attach an LCD, a microphone, and various accessories to your camera without stressing your camera's body.
Zacuto Gratical Eye Micro OLED EVF
With the Gratical Eye, Zacuto takes the highly regarded 0.61", 1280 x 1024 micro OLED panel found in their Gratical HD and packs into an EVF that weighs just 14 oz and fits into the palm of your hand. In order to keep the EVF small and compact, it features a round design and it equipped with only a single 3G-SDI input that supports up to 1080p60 video, a 2-pin LEMO power connector, and a USB port for firmware updates. Not content at being just a professional-grade EVF that produces natural looking images with a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, the Gratical Eye is equipped with a FPGA dual core processor to support the full set of monitoring and image analysis features found on the larger Gratical HD, including LUT support, vectorscope and waveform displays, and peaking, which are controlled using a joystick-style button on the back of the unit. With its compact size and full feature set, the Gratical Eye is an EVF ideally suited for use with professional SDI cameras and rigs using external power solutions.

Zacuto Axis Mini EVF Mount
A versatile and adjustable means for attaching a rosette-mounted EVF to your camera, the Zacuto Axis Mini is an ENG-style mount that is designed to attach to the top of your camera setup and provide you with ample room for adjusting focus or working with large lenses. It attaches directly to rigs fitted with a 15mm rod port and then connects with EVFs, such as the Gratical HD, using a secure 1/4"-20 rosette mount, or can also be used with 1/4"-20 screw mount EVFs with the separate Quad Rail for mounting.
Once attached, the Axis Mini's adjustable design utilizes four main pivoting points, which can spin a full 360° and are controlled using independent tension levers. With all levers unlocked, you can freely position the EVF at will using a single hand, or specific sections can be tightened down for fine-tuned adjustments on a single axis. Additionally, the articulation can be configured to work seamlessly with both shoulder-mounted rigs as well as for tripod-based shooting.
