The FS700 Shooter is a compact, stable rig for FS700 users. The kits starts with our Mini Baseplate (standard 3/8 16 and ¼ 20 tripod mount underneath) with 12″ rods. The rods can slide back and forth to accommodate different lenses and accessories by flipping the red levers at the side of the plate. Our comfy shoulder pad also slides on the rods for comfort and ease of use. A 7lb weight sits behind the shoulder pad for counterbalance. Attached to the front of our rods is our FS700 Grip Relocator. The Zacuto FS700 Grip Relocator attaches to the 15mm rod with Zacuto Zwivel technology. The handle can be swiveled up and forward or straight down for individual comfort. The FS700 handle screws into the Relocator with a ¼ 20 screw and is secured in place with a standard Arri rosette. Moving camera controls to the handle means the kit can be shorter and the camera can be a little further back on your shoulder which helps with stabilization and weight distribution. The Sony removable grip features four easy-to-use buttons including Start/Stop, Photo, 4x/8x expandable focus, and push-button auto iris. The Sony grip comes with a 12 cable.
Your Zacuto DSLR Base Plate is a highly configurable base plate which is adjustable to accommodate tall and short body cameras and cameras with battery grips. It also has mounting points to attach just about anything. It comes with 2 black 3.5″ rods.
The DSLR Base Plate can accommodate 15mm rods on all 4 sides. On the front are 2 levels for rods. The top is for mounting follow focuses, matte boxes, zoom/focus motors and lens support if space allows. The bottom rods are primarily used for lens support and single or double hand grips. These rods can be locked via allen screw so as to not come loose if using only one side for a single hand grip. The rear rod holes are for rod extensions to support battery power, wireless plates, monitors and numerous other accessories that you may need when in a tripod configuration. The rod holes on the left and right sides are for mounting the gunstock and the offset shoulder pad and counterweight for hand held use. Also mounted on these side rods can be a top handle, monitor arms and the cage which would use both sides at the same time.
On the bottom of the DSLR Base plate are your standard ¼ 20 and 3/8 16 mounting holes for tripods, mono pods, steadicams, etc. The top plate is a quick release plate that with a twist of the red knob lifts straight up and off separating your DSLR with the Z-finder attached, from the rest of your rig. The red knob also gives you left/right movement to adjust the lens position. On the front of the base plate between the rods are 2 allen screws that are used to adjust the top plate vertically. The vertical adjustment is to adjust for different camera body sizes and maintain the proper lens height.
|The EVF Standard Mount is used to mount the EVF onto the Zacuto DSLR Baseplate. It includes a 4.5 F/F rod that attaches to 15mm rod hole on the side of the DSLR Baseplate and a Z-Mount Zwivel. The Z-Mount Zwivel is a 15mm to 15mm rod connector that allows you to attach a vertical rod or the included EVF pan and tilt mount to the horizontal rod coming out of the side of the DSLR Baseplate. Attached to the vertical EVF pan and tilt mount is Zacuto’s Zicro Mini. This allows you quickly release the EVF from the EVF Standard Mount with the flip of the lever. The pan and tilt allows you to adjust the angle of your EVF to the desired position. |
If you are looking to mount the EVF to another manufacturer’s rig check out the EVF Rod Mount.
The 1/4 20″ Lens Support uses a 1/4 20″ screw to screw directly into a variety of lenses for more support. This lens support clamps to the rods from underneath so it can quickly be taken off the rods. The middle rod that attaches to the lens has vertical adjustment, if needed (please select the rod size below). Only thumb screw tightening is necessary, no tools required. This lens support can be used with a variety of rod sizes. Please select the rods that are being used below for the q-mount.

The anti-fog protective covers offer anti-fog and protection for your Z-Finder Pro and V2 lens. These covers are expendable* as customers may lose, scratch or damage these covers over time. They are meant to give you anti-fog and to help protect the actual lens on the Z-Finder. If your Z-Finder Pro and V2 did not ship with the anti-fog protective covers then you will need the Anti-Fog Protective Cover Upgrade Kit (pack of 3 with lens cap and eyecup) in order for them to work as the lens cap is slightly different than the one you have now.
