Zacuto released today three new DSLR Gunstock Shooter rigs and a new video Introducing DSLR Gorilla Kits. The Rapid Fire, Quick Draw, and Tactical Shooter are innovative lightweight DSLR Gunstock Shooters which are part of the new line called Gorilla Kits. The brand new rigs have been developed to be lightweight, inexpensive and infinitely adjustable. These Gorilla kits are created specifically for “on-the-go”, “run’n'gun”, “gorilla shooters like photographers, journalists, event and indie film shooters. These kits weigh virtually nothing and allow you to go from tripod to gorilla handheld in seconds. Watch our new video” Introducing DSLR Gorilla Kits (www.vimeo.com/4999283)” and see how.
“Many guys have been telling me that they wanted to be able to shoot super lightweight, steady and handheld for long periods of time. That in some cases they didn’t intend on using a follow focus and matte box”. Says Steve Weiss, Director ‘ product designer, Zacuto USA
“These kits bypass the baseplate and rods and that lightens the load and changes the whole dynamic,” says Jens Bogehegn, DP-product designer, Zacuto USA.
