Zacuto Zamerican arms are articulating arms that are 20% lighter than our first articulating arm. They are made with chrome balls for silk movement, aluminum ends for rust reduction and stainless steel to increase strength and reduce bulk.
They are built with Z-Release, giving you built-in quick release action using Zacuto's new Z-lock technology. Accessories install and remove with the flip of a lever. No more screwing and un-screwing and no more coming loose. Zamerican arms can be extended using Zacuto male rod extensions making articulating arms any length you want them to be. Zamerican arms require a Z-Release (quick-release) mount on each end of the arm. Z-Release mounts include:ZicroMount, Z-Mount, Stand mount, (Zround Mount + Double Mount), (Zround Mount + Mini Mount), Zgrip, q-mount and 1/2 to 1/4 20" adapter.
Designed and manufactured by Zacuto. Made in the USA. Zacuto lifetime warranty.
The Axis Mini is the most adjustable ENG style mount for rosette mounted EVFs, giving you full 360º motion with four adjustment points. Designed to attach to the top of your camera set up, it leaves plenty of room at the lens for focusing and will work with the widest of lenses. It can easily be adjusted with one hand while the rig is on your shoulder.
The VCT Pro baseplate is compatible with all cameras including Canon EOS C-series, Sony FS5 and FS7, AJA CION, BlackMagic, RED cameras, Arri Alexa and Amira, DSLRs, Mirrorless and more. The VCT Pro has a built-in, curved shoulder pad and an Arri M6 rosette for accessories and grips. It comes with quick-release, extendable 6.5” rods at the front, and lightweight spaced quick-release rod ports at the back.

The red sliding top plate offers easy adjust-ability for lens changes, removing your camera, and balancing your rig correctly on your shoulder. This sliding plate combined with a double screw track offers 10” of camera balance sliding range.
The lightweight, adjustable rod mount is set far back in the plate, offering plenty of accessory-capable area under the camera lens. This allows you to position your camera further back on the plate, keeping the balance point of your rig directly over your shoulder. The sliding track of the rod riser offers 25mm of vertical adjustment. (Alternate Tall Rod Riser offering up to 45mm of vertical adjustment - for RED cameras - is available. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.)

Keeping the camera low prevents already tall cameras from being too top heavy. With our VCT, the distance from the bottom of your camera to your shoulder is just 3/4 inch.
