The Zacuto Fast Draw Black is a shoulder mounted handheld system that uses our DSLR baseplate. It comes with all black rods. This kit works on any DSLR camera with or without battery grips as it is infinitely adjustable in height. The baseplate attaches to your tripod plate using the standard tripod plate screws, (2) ¼ 20” and (1) 3/8 16”. Your camera can also be quickly released from the rig by turning the red knob then pulling up on your camera. The camera quick release plate stays mounted to your camera so you can quickly switch between using the camera as part of a rig or on its own. You can easily add the optional Z-Finder Pro by attaching the Z-Finder Mounting Frame (included with the Z-Finder Pro) to the camera quick release plate using two thumb screws.
The Fast Draw uses our shoulder pad and 7lb. counter balance weight so you have a fully balanced rig. A fully balanced rig lessens fatigue as you will not be fighting the front heaviness of the rig. The rig can be configured for use on the left or right shoulder. It uses a single handgrip with the Z-mount Zwivel which allows you to change the vertical angle of handgrip. The handgrip can also be used on the right or left side independent of the shoulder pad position. The handgrip uses a ball joint so you can rotate the handgrip 180 degrees for user comfort.
As with all Zacuto gear, you can quickly release the shoulder mounted components and use the rig on a tripod. With this kit, you have the core to add a follow focus and/or matte box; additional rods are necessary.
