Zacuto Releases Zonitor Handheld Kit for 15mm Rods or 19mm Rods

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - February 9, 2011) -  High-end DSLR filmmaking accessories manufacturer, Zacuto USA, introduces the Zonitor Kit for 15mm rods or 19mm rods, allowing you to easily mount a monitor onto a rail system. The Zonitor kit simplifies the art of attaching and un-attaching a monitor, or other accessories to a Zamerican articulating arm by using the Z-Release technology. The Zicromount allows you to mount anything with a 1/4 20" (or 3/8 16" with 1/4 20" to 3/8 16" adapter) thread to the Zamerican Arm. Zacuto's 15mm Z-mount or 19mm Zandy is used to mount the Zamerican Arm with your accessory to your existing camera rig.

The Zonitor Handheld Kit Includes:

  • Zmount II
  • Zamerican V3 Large Arm
  • Zicromount III

"In the past I've used the Magic Arm to mount my monitor, which is cumbersome because you have to screw it onto something," says DP, Director and Filmmaker Philip Bloom. "Where this is actually part of the Zacuto rig, and the great thing about it is once you have attached a monitor to it, you can take it off with a quarter turn and put it back on again without cumbersome unscrewing and screwing."

Cinematographers find this device attractive because it makes set-up and tear down quick and easy, allowing time to be focused on other tasks during a shoot. 

"The Zonitor Kit is perfect for mounting a Marshall LCD monitor to an existing rig. It includes everything you need," says Zacuto Sales Director.

The Zonitor Handheld Kit is developed by Zacuto USA, the leading independent filmmaking accessories maker in the professional market. The kit is available at a Zacuto worldwide dealer: or at
