The Indie Recoil rig is universal for all cameras including mirrorless and DSLRs. It includes our Halfcage Rail and Recoil Handle for a sturdy top and side grip. This rig is perfect for those who already own the Zacuto EVF.

This is a Next Generation Recoil rig designed for optimal balance and comfort when shoulder mounted or on a tripod. With lenses and cameras being similar weights, the balance point is where the lens meets the camera body. In a Recoil rig, the balance point needs to be directly over your shoulder which puts the camera behind you. This requires focus, monitoring and camera controls to be relocated forward, creating a lighter and shorter rig.

VCT Pro – this baseplate has a sliding top plate for quickly removing the camera from the rig or fast len changes, a built-in, curved shoulder pad, a v-wedge tripod connector (with ¼” 20 and 3/8" 16 screw option). It has removable and extendable 6.5” iris rods and rows of ¼” 20 screw holes along the sides for accessories. It has quick release 15mm rod parts in the rear. The recessed rod mount offers maximum accessory capable space under your camera lens.
QR Riser – raises your camera to a height compatible with matteboxes. Also provides a quick-release for your camera. Includes Gorilla Plate V2 and Gorilla Tripod Dock.
Zgrip Zwivel – fully articulating handgrip with rod cap. Attaches to a single 15mm rod with a Zwivel mount that can be set at multiple different angles for comfort and ease of use.
Halfcage Rail – solid, adjustable, universal cage structure for the side and top of your camera rig. Comes with 3” Z-rail made for the VCT Pro. The Halfcage Rail expands to fit over your camera and accessories and includes Z-Rail, 1/4" 20 screw, and 15mm rod accessory attachment ports.
Recoil Handle – this solid top grip attaches to the Halfcage Rail with a quick release, ratcheting lever. The Recoil Handle can accept two coldshoe accessories and has a quick release 15mm rod port for an Axis Mini or articulating arm.

PLEASE NOTE: This rig requires the addition of a monitor or Zacuto EVF.

A Great Shoulder Rig for Getting the Perfect Shot
I received the Indie Recoil rig a month ago and began using it right away. Perfect for use with my Sony A7S and Cine Lens, the rig did everything I excepted and more. Over the last month I put the rig to the test using it in crazy environments, in the water, on ice, and for long periods of time. The rig was easy to operate, perfect for the cinematographer on the run! Definitely recommend this product.

P.S. get yourself a Gratical EVF, Z Drive, and Tornado Grip in addition to the rig!

Shooting with DSLR's has always been a bit of a challenge due to their small form factor. I have always done shoulder work and run and a gun style of shooting.
I had used other rigs in the past and found them to be unreliable and their knobs would easily loosen.
This rig is built like a tank! so stable and so comfy on your shoulder with the added padding, add the gratical and you have a fully professional setup that works like a charm!
Highly Recommend!!
