Zacuto Does It Again…With The DSLR Z-Cage

Zacuto never ceases to amaze me with their new and innovative products, and the Z-Cage is no exception. This expandable, ergonomic and customizable stabilization system is the perfect, light weight system for the HDSLR. The big punch here is the base plate.  You adjust the height of the plate with the twist of a knob to accommodate all cameras even the 1D Mark IV or if you use a battery grip – nice!   Really, really nice –  the baseplate also has a quick release for your camera. This is huge if you want to shed the cage quickly and easily without hassling with a ¼ 20 connection. The cost, $827, and if you’ve owned Zacuto before, you know it’s worth every penny. Zacuto is now taking orders, and they estimate delivery in two or three weeks. You can find out more information at www.zacuto.com.

The Zacuto DSLR Z-Cage allows you to have a small, stable, and portable mounting solution for your DSLR and all of the accessories used with it. The Z-Cage allows you to gain a better form factor for holding the camera in your hands, thus giving you more stability when shooting and lots of options and space for all of your additional accessories such as an HD monitor, audio recorder and so forth. The Z-Cage uses our DSLR baseplate and our DSLR handles which are very durable and form fitting to your hands.

The DSLR baseplate is fully adjustable and expandable. You can adjust the height of the plate for compatibility with all DSLR cameras with and without battery grips simply by using the Allen screws on the front of the baseplate. The DSLR baseplate is also the platform for building your kit into a shoulder mounted rig. The plate also has multiple 1/2″ 13 threads on the sides so you can expand the cage into a shoulder mounted rig if you ever choose to change or create your own system.A huge advantage we have over competitors is that your camera can be quickly released from the rig by turning the red knob on the side of the DSLR baseplate then pulling up on your camera. The camera quick release plate stays mounted to your camera so you can quickly switch between using the camera as part of the cage or on its own. Your tripod plate mounts to the bottom of the plate by using the standard tripod screws, (2) ¼ 20” and (1) 3/8 16”. The 3.5″ rods on the front of the baseplate are perfect for mounting a follow focus or matte box. If you are using longer lenses, rod extensions might be needed.For mounting a small hd monitor as pictured, a monitor mount is needed.

My New Tattoo – Canon T2i/550D

Shot with the Canon T2i. No color grading. Kit lens EF 18-55mm f/5.6 IS – low lighting with this lens isn’t completely amazing.Got the chance to help an aspiring tattooist friend from the comfort of my own couch. If you can call getting ink “comfortable”. Thanks to Ian Crossland and David Haverty for helping with the camera work.. and of course ‘Neener for the “ink-vigorating” tattoo.The tattoo is my design. Basically, it’s the scorpio sign with the numbers 2.39:1 under it. This is, of course, CinemaScope’s aspect ratio for film. The red stripe symbolizes everything I feel passionate about. After all, scorpio’s are damn passionate. The “M” may also stand for music, another of my passions.

Philip Bloom on Lucasfilm’s Red Tails

Philip Bloom takes HDSLR filmmaking to the THE level – a George Lucas film.  For those of you who don’t know, Mr. Lucas has been talking about making a film about the Tuskegee Airmen since the early 80’s.  So for Philip Bloom to be a part of this monumental production is not only a testament to Bloom’s skills as a filmmaker but also to the legitimacy of the HDSLR revolution as well.

Philip shares all about his experiences  while on Mr. Lucas’ set on his blog here:

He also shares some behind the scenes video from the set of of RED TAILS.

What’s in a name anyway..?

Per Jared at Cinema 5D, shooting video with a DSLR now has a formal name.  Ready..?   It’s not HD-DSLR, it’s not Video DSLR, it’s HDSLR.  Thanks for formalizing it for us Jared.  Your assertion has given HDSLR Shooter the legitimacy it deserves!  Here’s what Jared had to say:

“This has been driving me crazy for quite some time. I post as often as I can on the news section her at Cinema5D. I have tried to go with the flow on the name of the still cameras that shoot video. I think we started with Video DSLR, than HD DSLR and now we have started using HDSLR. I think it’s about time we settled on this damn thing once and for all. I think HDSLR is just fine. It seems to have grown organically with the cameras that were once called “Hybrids”. Not a very nice name. Video DSLR’s are too video sounding. That went away pretty fast. Then we got all serious about it and called them HD DSLR’s but that does not really sound cool. HDSLR’s is pretty cool. It is fairly correct. High Definition Single Lens Reflex camera is what it is, after all. I hope that still works when it shoots 4K. Or will it be called HDVHS?”
