Zacuto is announcing the release several camera configurations for the RED ONE CINEMA camera. They have created both a lightweight handheld as well as Tripod setups. These configurations integrate Zacuto products with RED products such as the RED LCD Screen and RED camera handle. All setups are of course balanced and completely quick-releasable (Zacuto trademark) for quick setup and fast company moves.
Z-grips give you that Zacuto low hand position that DP?s say is much less fatiguing when shooting for many hours. Plus, the handgrips themselves fully articulate for further comfort. The Zamerican arms allow you to quickly remove the articulating arm or monitor and move it in seconds. The Z-Mount allows you to attach The Zamerican arm to any 15mm rod anywhere.
All these and more features, makes the Zacuto?s lightweight setup easier to adjust than the RED brand accessories which use traditional screw on, screw off techniques, 19mmm studio rods and are very heavy. Using lightweight 15mm camera accessories vs. Studio 19mm can cut the cost of the Matte Box and Follow Focus by as much as $10,000.
Existing Zacuto customers should have all the pieces necessary to create these Zacuto RED ONE setups excluding one new part the Z-Riser, which will raise/lower their rods in front of the Zacuto Baseplate to reach camera accessories.
The Z-Riser can also be used on small HD camera systems using 35mm DOF adapters that have "flip" modules which will require the lenses to be mounted lower/higher, left/right relative to the camera and the adapter.
The setups are beautiful and a natural for RED ONE camera users considering Zacuto products are already red.
