Zacuto's Next Gen Recoil

If we were to use one word to describe these shoulder rigs it would be BALANCE! You cannot shoot with a rig that is not balanced, you’ll be fighting fatigue on long shoots. Whether you’re shooting a TV, film, documentary, wedding or news, a balanced shoulder mounted rig will keep your shots steady and allow you to shoot the whole day.

The core of the Next Generation Recoil Rigs is the VCT Universal baseplate. Zacuto’s reinvented VCT style baseplate is universal for all cameras from a tiny mirrorless to a camera the size of an ALEXA and everything in between. This is the last baseplate you’ll ever need.

Next Generation Recoil rigs are 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 balanced Recoil rig, that 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.
