Join Steve Weiss, Jens Bogehegn and Dave Schwartz as they unveil Zacuto’s revolutionary new DSLR Gunstock Shooters, set to debut at this year’s NAB show.
"The key here is not to encage with metal, keeping it light at 6.5 lbs. including camera & follow focus make it the only true portable capable of shallow DOF". Steve Weiss, product designer, Zacuto USA
After six months of using DSLR’s, Zacuto is now changing the way DSLR cameras will be used from this point forward. These Gunstock Shooters are universal, quick-releasable and extremely lightweight. They also create the correct form factor for filmmaking by utilizing the Z-finder, Zacuto’s Optical viewfinder, for precision focusing. Steve and Jens explain how these Shooters work like standard video cameras, the five points of contact offered by the Shooters, the usefulness of Zacuto’s new adjustable three-pound Z-Lite weight, and the key differences between each of the four Shooters.

Don't try to make any sense of this. I was just trying to do something "organic" looking, and a little less clean than some of the 5d videos I've seen. Christina and I shot this in and around a shed next to my studio last night after the sun went down. The bluish color was produced in camera with the WB set to incandescent. The lens used was a 45mm Canon T/S-E, and all lighting was "as we found it".
edit: I re-timed the video in 24p, (in compressor, which seems to do a nice job). This version also has been color corrected to remove the purple tone in the original.
First test footage with the Canon 5D Mark II. While pleased with the results of the camera, it felt a bit awkward at first especially trying to keep your eyes on the viewfinder hoping focus is achieved. Most of the night shots were hovering in the " is this going to be too noisy?" 1000 to 3200 ISO range maybe even 6400. All I can say is wow! The low light capabilities are stunning.
