Chicago-based production equipment maker Zacuto has announced four new mounts including the Zephyr Zacuto's 15mm lightweight support plate; the ZRed an EVF Red One Mount; the Zandy a19mm to 15mm rod mount; and the Zgrip Zandy an articulating handgrip. Zephyr Replacing the Sony and Panasonic ENG style cameras’ V-Wedge plate the Zephyr allows a quick-release from the tripod plate. The Zephyr’s lightweight long design and an opening in the bottom gives room for adjusting buttons in the lower front of the camera in addition to allowing the ability to adjust the 15mm rods up down left and right to align the matte box to the lens in addition to mounting a follow focus or lens support. ZRed Mount Kit The low-cost mount is adjustable will not loosen and slides onto the top 19mm or 15mm studio rod on the Red One camera. If sliding this mount onto a 15mm rod a Z-mount will be needed instead of a Zandy which is for 19mm rods. It has a rod end cap so the EVF won’t accidently slide off the rod. This mount has the ability to slide the EVF forward and backward as well as a complete 360-degree swivel for top or bottom or ENG use. Zandy This quick release mount is for mounting a monitor off of a 19mm rod by using a 15mm rod based arm such as a Zamerican Arm. Adding a Zacuto Zud will allow the mounting of a threaded articulating arm with the Zandy. The Zandy is also used in the ZRed to mount the Red One EVF on to a Red camera. This is a multipurpose mount for people who use 19mm rods. Zgrip Zandy The Zgrip Zandy is an articulating handgrip for a 19mm rod using the Zacuto quick-release system. The Zgrip Zandy comes with a Zgrip handle a 3.5-inch rod and a Zandy made for 19mm rod users that want a quick releasable handgrip. Zacuto
