Zacuto Indie Recoil - Universal DSLR and Mirrorless Camera Rig
We believe Recoil rigs are the future, and we want you to adopt the Recoil philosophy with a Gratical HD EVF! To highlight the perfect partnership between the Gratical HD electronic viewfinder and Next Generation Recoil rigs, we are offering unprecedented bundle savings. Add a Gratical & Axis Mini to complete your rig above & save $1000.
The Indie Recoil rig is universal for all cameras including mirrorless and DSLRs. It includes our Halfcage Rail and Recoil Handle for a sturdy top and side grip. This rig is perfect for those who already own the Zacuto EVF.
This is a Next Generation Recoil rig designed for optimal balance and comfort when shoulder mounted or on a tripod. With lenses and cameras being similar weights, the balance point is where the lens meets the camera body. In a Recoil rig, the balance point needs to be directly over your shoulder which puts the camera behind you. This requires focus, monitoring and camera controls to be relocated forward, creating a lighter and shorter rig.
Zacuto Marauder - Foldable DSLR Rig
The Marauder is the first of its kind, a foldable DSLR run'n'gun rig. It's small enough to fit in your back pocket but when unfolded, it's an extremely stable DSLR camera support.
The Marauder is similar to one of our most popular DSLR kits, the Striker. But, as opposed to our Striker (which is composed of multiple parts and rods that are highly adjustable and can be reconfigured in an infinite amount of positions) the Marauder unfolds instantly to fit you and is ready to shoot in seconds. It folds up just as fast and can then fit into any carry on, backpack, purse, camera bag or cargo pants pocket. The Marauder includes both a gunstock and an adjustable handgrip to create a small stable framework.
The Marauder includes our Gorilla Plate V2 as the platform for your camera. You can attach your Zacuto Z-Finder Mounting Frame to this Gorilla Plate V2. Attach your camera to the plate with the single 20 screw and quick release on and off the Marauder with the red quick release ratcheting lever. The Gorilla Plate can be attached at two different points. Keep the Marauder in a vertical position for use with a Zacuto Z-Finder. This will give you the correct distance from your eye to the Z-Finder eyecup. Extend the Marauder via the red push lever to place the camera further away for use without a Z-Finder. This gives you a bit more distance to focus on the camera LCD.
The handgrip can be adjusted into five different positions for individual comfort and is locked with the release of the red lever. The grip itself also articulates and locks with red locking lever. Built into the Marauder is a gunstock with a comfy rubber pad. Adjust the angle and/or position of the gunstock with the two Allen screws to conform to your body size and shape.
Zacuto DSLR Marksmen

The Gunstock Shooters come equipped with a shoulder strap for all day carrying, allowing users to go from ready position to shooting position within seconds.

They can also be used with or without counterbalance. The Marksmen weighs 7 lbs and offers five points of physical contact.

Zacuto DSLR Rapid Fire Gunstock Shooter
Zacuto's DSLR Gunstock Gorilla kits are for shooters who are on the go, run'n gun, gorilla shooters. They go from tripod to handheld in seconds and weigh virtually nothing. Perfect for journalism, event and indie shooters looking for Zacuto quality, infinite adjustability as well as an affordable price. Shooting still photographs without a tripod is possible, but when shooting HD video you need multiple points of contact to steady the camera. Get a Gorilla kit and become a steady Zacuto Gorilla shooter.

Zacuto DSLR Z-Finder
Zacuto's Z-Finder optical viewfinder is just the tool you'll need for shooting professional video on the Canon 7D, 5D MkII, the Nikon D90, D300s and other DSLRs with 3" LCD screens. Whether shooting handheld or on a tripod, the Z-Finder turns your camera's LCD into a clear, easy-to-focus viewfinder that lets you see your image in magnified detail even under the brightest sunlight. Just as crucially, the Z-Finder provides that extra degree of handling comfort and point of contact--between the camera and your eye--that adds stability to any handheld video.
Now in Version 2, this Z-Finder replaces the original Velcro attachment with a flat, stick-on frame that attaches around your camera's LCD screen, which the Z-Finder snaps onto (there is also the option of using rubber bands). Along with its sturdy new design, the V2 adds a convenient lanyard hook that lets you keep the Z-Finder around your neck when detached from the camera.
