Zacuto Rigs for RED Epic and Scarlet Cameras Available Now

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Mar 1, 2012) - RED Epic and Scarlet camera owners will be happy to know that Zacuto has developed several rigs for RED's Epic and Scarlet cameras. Zacuto is now offering Recoil, Recoil Lite and Stinger rigs for the RED Epic and Scarlet. For people looking for smaller, lighter rigs, Zacuto is also offering the Target Shooter and Striker kits.

"But it doesn't stop there," says Mandy Rogers, VP of Sales and Marketing. "We are working on several other accessories due out by NAB 2012."

"Our new line of kits for the Scarlet and Epic will transform your camera into an ergonomic masterpiece," says Zacuto Sales Associate, Rachel Kenton. "These awesome cameras can now be supported and carried comfortably and are easy to adapt to all your other accessories. Whether you're looking for something fast and simple like our Striker kit or are in the market for a more heavy duty solution to hold all your goodies -- like the Stinger -- we've got something for you."

At the heart of these rigs are the new Zacuto Studio and Gorilla baseplates. The studio style baseplate features the Zacuto Rod Riser to get the correct height for a matte box. The baseplate is very flat and features four sets of 60mm spaced holes, one on each side of the baseplate, giving users a virtually unlimited amount of mounting options.

"The Studio Baseplate does exactly what we want and more," says filmmaker, Tyler Ginter. "This is seriously one of Zacuto's best designs to date!"

The Gorilla Baseplate features two 15mm diameter, 60mm spaced threaded rod holes in the front that allow users to mount a follow focus, lens support or other accessories. Both baseplates are extremely flat and are compatible with all other existing Zacuto products.
