GTC sponsor Zacuto has had a very busy end to the year, announcing a new Z Cam Cage. Read on to find out about the new cage and some of the projects Zacuto gear has been used on recently.
New E2 and E2 Flagship Cage
Zacuto's Z CAM E2 and E2 Flagship Cage is compatible with Z CAM E2, E2G, E2-S6, E2-F6 and E2-F8 camera bodies. This unique, modular cage consists of six pieces – two Side Plates, one Top Plate, one Bottom Plate, a USB Clamp and an HDMI Clamp, all weighing in at just under half a pound! Cages can be customised to suit the user with grips, mounts, and more.
Quick rig for Sony A7RIV
On paper, Sony’s new Megapickle-Monster A7RIV seems like complete overkill for shooters like Kevin McRoberts. Why would he choose the photographer-focused A7RIV over other cameras that might deliver better codecs, frame rates, cheaper price or other vital paper specs for video shooters?

Case study: Shooting on a Fuji XT-3
Cinematographer Cy Abdelnour took Zacuto's Fuji XT-3 Cage and a Polaris shoulder-rig with Kameleon EVF out for a real-world test. Read all about it here.
Why I said 'no' to film festivals
In a recent edition of 'Zacuto Live', director Rob Smat talks in-depth about his experience working with agents, managers, theatres and Netflix on his feature The Last Whistle. See what Rob has to say below:
