Zacuto EVF Recoil Pro with Dual Trigger Grips for Canon C300 Mark II
The Zacuto EVF Recoil Pro with Dual Trigger Grips for Canon C300 Mark II is a rig that is compatible with the Canon C300 Mark II camera. When purchasing this rig, you will receive the Zacuto C300 Mark II Helmet Kit, as well as the Zacuto Canon Dual Trigger Grips, and the VCT Pro Baseplate. To ensure that the rig is balanced correctly, Zacuto put this rig 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.
The C300 Mark II Helmet Kit includes a custom-designed top plate to fit your C300 Mark II, providing accessory mounting and forward or backward top handle adjustment for the included Recoil Handgrip. The handgrip is lined with maple wood and incorporates two cold shoes as well as a 15mm rod clamp. The Dual Trigger Grips enables mounting the camera's handgrip on an articulating extendable arm. The VCT Pro Baseplate includes 15mm rods and rod clamps for rod-mounted accessories, and enables balancing your camera on your shoulder or mounting on a tripod, swiftly going between the two without having to remove the rod-mounted accessories.
Zacuto Gratical Eye Micro OLED EVF
The Zacuto Gratical Eye Micro OLED EVF is the smallest and lightest Micro OLED EVF that Zacuto has to offer. The electronic viewfinder itself only weighs 14oz and can fit in the palm of your hand. The Gratical Eye is an ideal solution for image and filmmakers who are using professional SDI cameras, rigs, and external batteries. It is equipped with a 2-pin LEMO power jack and a single 3G-SDI input that supports up to 1080p60 video. Additionally, the Gratical Eye features a USB port for firmware updates.
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. 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.

Zacuto Axis Mini EVF Mount
The Zacuto Axis Mini EVF Mount is an ENG-style mount. It attaches to the top of your camera setup, which allows you all the room you need if you are working with a large lens, or need to adjust the focus. The Axis Mini allows you to attach a rosette-mounted EVF to your camera. To attach this EVF Mount to your rig, you need a 15mm rod port. The other side of the mount connects to EVFs, such as the Gratical HD or the Gratical Eye. The secure 1/4"-20 rosette mount is used to attach the EVF.
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.
