The Zacuto Z-QRSP QR Shoulder Pad is a completely universal curved, padded shoulder pad system. The shoulder pad is designed to sit directly under your camera or baseplate putting the camera on top of your shoulder as in a traditional ENG style set up. This Recoil system can be adapted to most type of cameras. Having your camera directly on your shoulder eliminates the need for counterbalance which means your kit can be lighter and shorter.
The QR Shoulder Pad is a two part system that includes the shoulder pad itself and a separate (but included) DovetailPlate that screws into the bottom of your camera or baseplate just like an ordinary tripod plate. The shoulder pad is set at an angle and made of form-fitting Akton Polymer, gel pad to settle comfortably into your shoulder. The dovetail plate comes with one 1/4 20 and one 3/8 16 screw in sliding tracks that allows you to position the plate at any point under your baseplate for comfort and balance.
At the side of the shoulder pad is a quick release red cam lever. When tight, the lever is rock solid and will hold the pad in place. When the lever is pushed out and set at a right angle to the plate, you can slide the pad forwards and back on the dovetail plate to set the correct placement for your shoulder. When the cam lever is all the way extended, it releases from the dovetail completely. The dovetail plate can then act as a traditional tripod plate and snap directly into a tripod quick release plate on your tripod, monopod, slider or other standard piece of equipment.
