ABOUT THE ZACUTO C500 MKII RECOIL PRO & GRATICAL EYE
***Please note: Canon C500 Mark II is not included***
The Canon C500 Mark II Recoil Pro is a shoulder rig designed specifically for the Canon C500 Mark II. 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 shoulder mount rig, the balance point needs to be directly over your shoulder which puts the camera behind you. The Recoil rig adjusts for that balance point and relocates focus, monitoring and camera controls forward, creating a lighter, shorter and properly balanced rig.
VCT Pro – This baseplate has a sliding top plate for quickly removing the camera from the rig or fast len changes, a built-in, curved shoulder pad, a v-wedge tripod connector (with ¼” 20 and 3/8″ 16 screw option). It has removable and extendable 6.5” 15mm lightweight rods and rows of ¼” 20 screw holes along the sides for accessories. It has quick release 15mm rod parts in the rear. The recessed rod mount offers maximum accessory capable space under your camera lens.
Rosette Trigger Grip – relocates the Canon C500 Mark II camera grip to a comfortable handgrip position for shoulder rigs. Our trigger grips are the most adjustable grips available. They allow for single-handed 360° rotation with the simple press of a trigger. Includes the cable to connect your trigger grip to the camera.
C500 Mark II Top Plate – mounts directly to the top of the C500 II. Offers multiple ¼” 20 and ⅜” 16 mounting screw holes to attach a variety of accessories as well as a spot to mount the C200 LCD Monitor. The Canon Top Handle can be used on the top plate but you lose the ability to easily slide a handle back and forth for balance and mounting points for accessories.
Recoil Handle – Includes the rock solid Recoil Handle top grip that accepts two coldshoe accessories and has a quick release 15mm rod port. Our handle allows you to quickly take the handle off for travelling.
To complete the Recoil rig, add on the Canon C500 Mark II Z-Finder with Axis Mini or a Zacuto EVF.
The Gratical Eye SDI electronic viewfinder – the smallest and lightest of our Micro OLED EVFs. It fits in the palm of your hand and weighs only 14oz. This is an ideal SDI EVF solution for filmmakers using professional cameras and external batteries. The Gratical Eye has a 2 pin Lemo power jack and a single SDI input. A 75Wh battery can power the Gratical Eye for 14 hours! Mount the Gratical Eye to your Next Generation Recoil via the 1/4 20 rosette on the side with an Axis Mini.
The Gratical Eye Micro OLED electronic viewfinder uses an extremely powerful FPGA dual-core processor and the latest Micro-OLED displays to provide a hugely expanded contrast range. Our Micro-OLED display supports high pixel density with unparalleled resolution, true blacks, gamma and contrast range. The Gratical Eye has 5.4 million pixels on a 0.61” diagonal screen no bigger than the size of your thumbnail.
You’ll be amazed with how sharp the image is. The internal field of view is just the right size so that the image is large, but not so that your eye has to roam to see the entire image at once. It features a built in -1 to +4 diopter range and Zacuto’s patented essential anti-fog coating formula. It never fogs in humidity or freezing temperatures. An auto-closing eyecup door prevents sunburn display automatically without any action by the operator.
Along with the full suite of Zacuto EVF firmware (full scopes, LUTs, multi level peaking, and more), the Gratical Eye has two unique features – an external tally light and a proximity screen saver.
