Zacuto Releases 1/4 20" Lens Support

High-End DSLR Film Accessories Manufacturer, Zacuto USA, Introduces the 1/4 20" Lens Support That Works With the Zeiss Prime Lens

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - December 29, 2010) - Zacuto, USA creates a new 1/4 20" Lens Support for long or heavy lenses. The 1/4 20 Lens Support will ease any undue pressure on your camera and camera kit, especially when using smaller cameras, like DSLRs. The 1/4 20" Lens Support Includes:

-Rod choice of 1in or 2.5in
-1/2" to 1/4 20" adapter
-Q-Mount with various rail mount options

"Lens support is not just about supporting a heavy lens. When using a follow focus, it puts a lot of torque on the lens," says Product Designer Steve Weiss. "Without lens support this torque shifts the camera body up and down. It not only is bad for your camera, but it also adds shake to the shot. For repeatable focus and rock solid focus pulls, the lens support is essential."

This lens support can be used with the CP2 Zeiss lenses and the Zacuto DSLR baseplate. Other rod lengths are available if needed. If the 1/4 20 screw hole under the lens is offset, one can use a Zacuto Zian to align correctly. The 1/4 20 Lens Support has four rail mounting options as follows:

-15mm lightweight (most popular and works on Zacuto DSLR Baseplate)
-15mm studio offset
-15mm studio centered
-19mm studio

"With the release of the Zeiss CP 2 Primes lenses for DSLRs, I have personally seen
a spike in sales for the 1/4 20" lens support," says Sales Director for Zacuto, USA Mandy Rogers. "It is a necessity to support the lens."

The Zacuto 1/4 20" Lens Support is developed by Zacuto USA, the leading independent filmmaking accessories maker in the professional market. The lens support is available at a Zacuto worldwide dealer: or at
