Zacuto C100 MK II Helmet Puts A EVF In The Right Position

Zacuto C100 MKII Helmet

The design of the new Zacuto C100 MKII Helmet is clean and simple and puts the EVF in the right position for easy access while shooting handheld or on a tripod. It attaches to the top of the C100 MKII via one screw on top and one on the side, relocating the film plane screw on the left side of the camera. This prevents the helmet from twisting.

The C100 Mark II Helmet package includes the C100 Mark II Helmet, a 5” Z-rail with a 15mm rod lock at the end, and a double jawed Z-rail lock. With the front rod mount other non-Zacuto setups can also be used so this could be a nice base to build out from. With the bunch of 1/4 20 taps peppered all around the helmet you can bolt on a accesories galore. The round locking screw is now strengthened by adding a clamp to the side walls of the cold shoe itself. The mount and the rod lock each use a lever for quick release capability. Once installed adjusting the handle forward or back for balance or removal of the handle is just a half turn of the lever. That sure will make a much more solid and faster to remove handle.
