The Striker is light and easy to handle. It has three points of contact by having one hand on the hand grip, the gun stock in your chest and your focusing hand on the lens. The entire kit is infinitely adjustable. You can add a fourth point of contact by adding one of our Z-Finders to the kit.
The Zacuto Gorilla plate attaches to the bottom of your camera using the standard tripod screw hole. The Gorilla plate has a 15mm hole in the bottom which allows you to attach the main rod for the Striker rig. The rig can be freed from the Gorilla plate by flipping the red lever. A tripod plate can be installed on the Gorilla plate for quickly moving from handheld to tripod.
The Striker kit can not accommodate a follow focus or matte box as it does not have a base plate. Once you add more weight to the front of the camera, such as a follow focus and matte box, we recommend going to our Cinema DSLR Kits which have a shoulder pad and counterbalance weight to properly balance the rig.
