Description

This is a demo open box item. 

The C300/C500 Helmet Kit includes the C300/C500 Helmet, a 3” Z-Rail and the Recoil Handle top grip. The C300/C500 Helmet is a mini cage designed to mount directly to the top of the Canon C300 or C500 in place of the plastic top handle. It gives you multiple ¼" 20 and ⅜" 16 mounting screw holes to which you can securely attach a variety of accessories. The Helmet attaches to the camera via one screw on top and two additional screws on the sides, mounting it firmly in place. The two film plane screws must be removed from the camera, but can be screwed into the Helmet, maintaining their original position. Longer screws for attaching the Helmet to the camera body are included. 

The Recoil Handle attaches to the Helmet via the included 3" Z-Rail. The quick-release Recoil Handle includes two coldshoe mounts (one vertical & one horizontal), a 15mm quick-release rod port, and two ⅜” 16 screw hole mounts (convert to ¼” 20 with a brass collet). The two coldshoe mounts secure with a quick-release clamp onto the shoe of your accessory. Mount two cold shoe items at once with a half turn of a Zacuto lever. No unnecessary winding of the annoying plastic round tie-down wheel! The top handle itself is hand tooled fine three-quarter maple.

Demo Helmet Kit for C300 - C500
I recently purchased this kit - my second one - and couldn't be happier.
Great build quality - rock solid with no wiggling! Beyond versatile -a truly great accessory for the C300.

C500 Handle Experience
Ordered the helmet kit for my C500. The wood handle looks as good in person as it does in the photos. Size of the handle is longer and higher than the stock plastic handle that comes with the camera. Initially when I set it up the cables from the monitor to the camera were too tight. However the Zacuto really is the Swiss Army Knife of handles and after changing bits around the monitor cables now have some slack and the monitor is positioned where I want it to be. Because of the extra height I also found I could no longer leave the monitor on the handle and still zip up my camera case but the cold shoe jaws are so quick to use it is not an issue to just slide the monitor off and lay it in the case beside the camera body. Very comfortable and solid feeling when holding the C500.

Must have
I purchased 3 of these and they are amazing! I couldn't be happier with what i recieved. All parts stay together when not mounted to a camera and rock steady when it is attached. Wooden accents are nice and fit the hand perfectly.
