Chicago, IL – October 7, 2008 – Zacuto’s mission to make your shooting easier with their lightweight quick-release systems has done it again. Zacuto announces 4 sleek new mounts including the Zephyr, Zacuto's 15mm lightweight support plate; the ZRED, an EVF RED ONE Mount, the Zandy, a19mm to 15mm rod mount; and the Zgrip Zandy, an articulating handgrip.
Replacing your Sony and Panasonic ENG style cameras’ V-Wedge plate, Zacuto’s ZEPHYR allows you to quick-release from the tripod plate. With the ZEPHYR’s unique lightweight long design and an opening in the bottom, it gives you room for adjusting buttons in the lower front of the camera in addition to allowing you the ability to adjust the 15mm rods up, down, left and right to align your matte box to the lens in addition to mounting a follow focus or lens support if desired. If you are looking for something to be used on Canon, JVC, Sony and Panasonic cameras, check out Zacuto’s Lightweight Support System (LWS). The Zephyr is designed and manufactured by Zacuto, made in the USA, and comes with the Zacuto lifetime warranty.
ZRED Mount Kit #Z-RED-EVF
This is the EVF mount all RED users have been waiting for! It is inexpensive, adjustable and will not loosen. The mount slides onto the top 19mm or 15mm studio rod on the RED ONE camera. If sliding this mount onto a 15mm rod, a Z-mount will be needed instead of a Zandy which is for 19mm rods. You have your choice of either when ordering. It has a rod end cap so the EVF can not accidently slide off the rod. This mount has the ability to slide the EVF forward and backward as well as a complete 360 degree swivel for top or bottom or ENG use. The Zred mount is designed and manufactured by Zacuto, made in the USA, and comes with the Zacuto lifetime warranty.
This quick release mount is ideal for mounting a monitor off of a 19mm rod by using a 15mm rod based arm such as a Zamerican Arm. Adding a Zacuto Zud will allow you to mount a threaded articulating arm with the Zandy. The Zandy is also used in the Zred to mount the RED ONE EVF on to a RED camera. This is a must have multipurpose mount for people who use 19mm rods. The Zandy is designed and manufactured by Zacuto, made in the USA, and comes with the Zacuto lifetime warranty.
Zgrip Zandy #Z-ZG-ZDY
The ZGRIP ZANDY is an articulating handgrip for a 19mm rod using the Zacuto quick-release system. The Zgrip Zandy comes with a Zgrip handle, a 3.5 inch rod and a Zandy making this the perfect gear for 19mm rod users that want a quick releasable handgrip. The Zgrip Zandy is designed and manufactured by Zacuto, made in the USA, and comes with the Zacuto lifetime warranty.
