The Recoil Lite is a stripped down version of the Recoil. The Recoil Lite is the ultimate balanced rig for the C300, Scarlet and Epic Cameras. With the Recoil concept, the camera sits directly on your shoulder like a typical ENG Camera. The Recoil Lite is super light and stripped down. The Recoil starts with our light Gorilla Baseplate. It attaches to the camera with 3/8” 16 and ¼” 20 screws*. The Gorilla Baseplate features 15mm diameter, 60mm spaced threaded rod holes in the front of the baseplate that allow users to mount a follow focus, lens support or other accessories in front of the camera. The Gorilla Baseplate is not compatible for matte box use unless you have a height adjustable matte box**.
Unique to the Recoil Lite (and Recoil) is the use of the Zacuto Q-Release and Shoulder Pad. The Q-release allows you to mount the shoulder pad directly underneath the camera and be able to quickly release the shoulder pad from the rig by flipping two levers. This gives you two things; the ability to quickly attach the rig to a tripod and vice versa and the ability to have the camera sit directly on your shoulder eliminating the front heaviness.
The Recoil Lite requires the use of an EVF. We recommend using the Z-Finder EVF Pro and the EVF Rod Mount to mount the EVF to the Recoil Lite. With the Recoil Lite, the operator holds onto the 15mm rods coming off the front of the Gorilla Baseplate. If you are looking for handgrips, check out the Recoil.
The Recoil Lite is a great kit for run & gun style or all day shooting with the EOS C300, Epic or Scarlet. It is an extremely versatile kit.
* NOTE: The screw hole pattern on the Gorilla Baseplate is ¼” 20, ¼” 20, 3/8” 16, 3/8” 16. The first ¼” 20 and 3/8”16 screw holes are for mounting the C300. The last ¼” 20 and 3/8”16 screw holes are for mounting the Epic or Scarlet. The plate will ship with one ¼” 20 screw and one 3/8” 16 screw.
** NOTE: The Gorilla Baseplate has a non-standard rod to lens height, only some adjustable matte boxes will work. The standard is 85mm. The lens of the Epic/Scarlet to center of 15mm rods on the Gorilla Baseplate is 106mm. The lens of the C300 to center of 15mm rods is 88mm. All lightweight spaced, rod mounted follow focuses should be compatible.
