The Filmmaker Kit takes the ZACUTO Indie kit a step further by providing a follow focus, whip and a universal lens gear. This kit was made for shooting feature style on a tripod, dolly or handheld. The Filmmaker kit includes all of the mounting equipment necessary for the independent filmmaker- you can mount a matte box, follow focus, wireless microphone receive and external monitor. The mount behind the shoulder pad will hold batteries to power the monitor and provide a counterbalance weight to offset the weight of the camera and accessories. The rig can be easily balanced with a few quick adjustments and gives any professional camcorder the stability of a larger shoulder-mount camera.
Zacuto's baseplate kits are universal and quick-releasable; they can be used with any 15mm lightweight accessories, follow focuses & matte boxes. The kits are designed to be used with current and future models of cameras & camcorders such as the: Panasonic HVX200a, DVX100a/b, Canon XL-H1, XL2, GL2, XH-A1 Sony XDCAM EX1, EX3, SO-HVR-Z1U, VX2000, PD-150, PD-170, JVC GY-HD100U, HD200U, HD250U, Silicon Imaging SI2K, RED ONE, and many more.
