Description

The Tornado grip connects to the Zacuto Z-Drive (not included) follow focus via a standard whip port. Due to the unique 60 degree curved shape of the Z-Drive and the comfortable horn shape of the Tornado grip, these products combine to create a unique mechanical follow focus handgrip perfect for single operator shoulder mounted work. This is particularly useful in Zacuto Recoil style setups where the camera is directly over your shoulder. The curve in the Z-Drive brings focusing forward so you can reach it comfortably and the Tornado attachment completes the setup.

Slide the Tornado grip into the Z-Drive whip port by pushing down on the round plunger and pushing the Tornado into the port. Once you release this plunger it will be securely attached. Grab the horn handle with your bottom three fingers, placing your forefinger and thumb on the scalloped focus wheel. Turn your whole hand to focus. For lenses with a large focus rotation, release your thumb and forefinger, ratchet your wrist back and grab the scalloped wheel once again for more range.

This unique Zacuto twist on the traditional follow focus and whip set up is perfectly engineered for use with a Recoil kit.

Looking for a full handle kit? We offer the Z-Drive and Tornado together with a single handgrip in our Recoil Handgrip Kit.

It's about time!
Wow this thing is amazing!!!!!! Why didn't anybody think of this before?! It has totally refined my DSLR shooting with my Scorpion as I can now freely move about and follow focus without letting go of my handgrip. It is really comfortable and easy to use. It works great!
The only thing is when I set my Scorpion down on the ground this grip pushes up into my lens dislodging it a little bit. I have resorted to keeping my two regular hand grips on the front of the Scorpion, with the tornado further up front,so I can put the whole rig down the ground when I'm not shooting. But it's not a big deal when you consider how much this grip will help your shooting! An amazing invention! Brilliant you guys!
