The Zacuto Sony FX6 Recoil Pro work together providing support, control, adjustable balance, and accessory mounting that doesn't stress your camera's body. The Recoil Pro setup allows you to quickly rebalance for different lenses or accessories to help prevent fatigue while creating smooth handheld shots.

The Zacuto Sony FX6 Recoil Pro is a padded shoulder support that mounts onto a VCT plate for quick tripod mounting and unmounting. It features a forward/back adjustable camera mounting plate, 15mm LWS rod clamps, rods, and an ARRI rosette. The included rosette trigger grip attaches to the rosette on the VCT Pro, and it allows you to move the Sony handgrip that came with your camera forward and off the camera, for better balance, while maintaining the electronic control over your camera with the included 13.5" long LANC cable. The top plate and handle mount allow you to mount additional accessories on your camera via 1/4"-20, 3/8"-16, and ARRI-style accessory mounting holes, or optional 15mm rods.

Zacuto VCT Pro Baseplate

With built-in ergonomic shoulder pad, 10" sliding track, extra space for accessories in front, VCT14-compatible V-wedge, red buttons and levers all around, and much more, this is the stylish VCT Pro Baseplate from Zacuto. Use it with all types of cameras, from DSLRs to larger models, like the Alexa. A section of the baseplate extends out beyond the 15mm LWS rod adapter in front. With the rod adapter thus set back, you have additional space to mount accessories under the camera lens, allowing you to position the camera further back on the plate, keeping the balance point of your rig directly over your shoulder. (The rod adapter is vertically adjustable 1", and has to be in a raised position to allow for accessories to be mounted in the additional space. Also, a 1.8" riser for the rod adapter is optionally available for RED cameras by special order from Zacuto.) Also, on the bottom of the section that protrudes out is where the V-wedge is. There is also a 15mm LWS rod adapter on the rear. The VCT Pro Baseplate features a 10" sliding track, providing the space to optimally adjust balance after every lens change. Moreover, the included red camera plate can be loosened by a spring-loaded lever instead of a screw, so you can make adjustments quickly and easily. To fully release and remove the plate (and camera), just press a red button on the side of the baseplate and slide the plate out. The rod ports also have spring-loaded levers. An ARRI M6 rosette is available on the front for attaching accessories and grips, and there are also three 1/4"-20 threaded holes on the side providing additional mounting options. 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 tripod mount holes are available on the bottom to use instead of the V-wedge. The shoulder pad runs pretty much along the entire length as well as width of the baseplate, and is made of gel polymer. Two 6.5" 15mm rods are included. One 1/4"-20 and one 3/8"-16 screw are supplied for the camera plate. The VCT Pro Baseplate is made in the USA.
