The Zacuto 3in Z-Rail works with any of our Z-Rail accessories such as the Recoil Top Handle and any Z-rail mount . It is compatible with the RED Epic/Scarlet, the C300/C500 (with Helmet), the Black Magic Camera and others. It attaches via (2) ¼” 20 screws (included) that are spaced 3/8" screw center to center at their closest to 2" 5/32" at their furthest. The 3in Z-Rail can be used on a second camera so you can quick release any of the Z-rail accessories mentioned above back and forth between cameras.

Solid and versatile
I got this to attach a handle to my DSLR cage. I use it with a Nato handle from Wooden Camera and it works great! It's very well build and I can put it either horizontal or vertical with no concerns. Another great Zacuto product. For those who complain about Zacuto prices, this is actually cheaper than many other Nato rails out there and probably better built.

The best NATO style rail...
This is literally the best rail on the market for NATO style mounting. I've tried the Wooden Camera, Smallrig, and ENDO rails and they all suffer from grip fatigue (after repeatedly tightening the rail can become worn down and other handles from other manufacturers will no longer be able to fit and tightening properly without rocking) or rocking. The Zacuto zrail however is SUPER TOUGH and will literally be the bets investment for a rail you can make. I use it on all my setups and even bought some extra just in case for NATO mounting. I personally love the Zacuto Zrail and again recommend it to everyone!

cool runnings
This makes a big difference with mounting a quick release handle to my camera cage and then being able to adjust its location to find the perfect center of balance. Also nice to pull the handle off quickly for packing in bags or when I don't need it. I haven't tried other z-rail attachments/accessories yet, but will probably go for the 5'' when I do since I think the 3" could get a bit crowded.
