The Zacuto Gratical Eye Recoil Pro Bundle for EVA1 is a bundle that is compatible with the Panasonic EVA1 camera, along with the Zacuto Gratical Eye Micro OLED EVF. It is an ideal kit to have for your EVA1 camera, allowing you to use this shoulder-mounted handheld rig either on your shoulder, or by mounting it onto a tripod. Along with the support rig, when you purchase this package you will also receive the Gratical Eye Micro OLED EVF that comes with an Axis Mini mount, as well as the Top Plate and Top Handle, both equipped with Z-Rails, a 15mm Rod Lock for the Top Handle to attach additional accessories, and a VCT Pro Baseplate.
The Gratical Eye EVF features a micro OLED panel that produces an image with true blacks and a 10,000:1 contrast ratio. The built-in joystick enables accessing LUT support, waveform, vectorscope, and peaking. It features a 3G-SDI input and powers via a 2-pin LEMO connector.
The included Recoil Pro rig follows Zacuto's Recoil Rig philosophy of placing the balance point directly over your shoulder, thereby putting the camera body behind the shoulder and relocating focus, monitoring, and camera controls forward to create a lighter, shorter, and properly balanced rig.
Zacuto EVA1 EVF Recoil Pro V2
The Zacuto EVA1 EVF Recoil Pro V2 is a shoulder rig that is compatible with the Panasonic EVA1 camera. When purchasing this rig, you will receive the Zacuto VCT Pro Baseplate, as well as the EVA1 Trigger Grip, the Top Handle with 15mm Rod Lock, and the EVA1 Top Plate - everything you need to head out on a shoot with your camera ready and secure on your shoulder. 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 VCT Pro plate supports the camera with 10" of forward/back balance adjustment, and includes 15mm rods and rod clamps for rod-mounted accessories. The VCT Pro also enables your rig to go from your shoulder to tripod and back without removing accessories. The Trigger Grip relocates the EVA1's handgrip to an articulating arm, so you can use all the grip's functions while comfortably supporting the rig on your shoulder. The EVA1 Top Plate mounts on your camera and provides the capability to attach accessories to your camera without stressing its body. The included Top Handle and Rod Lock provide a contoured wood handle and 15mm rod clamp that you can mount onto the Top Plate for improved ergonomics and LCD mounting options.
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.

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.
