The QR Shoulder Pad is a completely universal curved, padded shoulder pad system.

The shoulder pad is designed to sit directly under your camera or baseplate putting the camera on top of your shoulder as in a traditional ENG style set up. We call this our Recoil system and it can be adapted to most every type of camera. Having your camera directly on your shoulder eliminates the need for counterbalance which means your kit can be lighter and shorter. 

The QR Shoulder Pad is a two part system that includes the shoulder pad itself and a separate (but included) DovetailPlate* that screws into the bottom of your camera or baseplate just like an ordinary tripod plate. The shoulder pad is set at an angle and made of form-fitting Akton Polymer, gel pad to settle comfortably into your shoulder. The dovetail plate comes with one (1) ¼ 20 and one (1) 3/8 16 screw in sliding tracks that allows you to position the plate at any point under your baseplate for comfort and balance. At the side of the shoulder pad is a quick release red cam lever. When tight, the lever is rock solid and will hold the pad in place. When the lever is pushed out and set at a right angle to the plate, you can slide the pad forwards and back on the dovetail plate to set the correct placement for your shoulder. When the cam lever is all the way extended, it releases from the dovetail completely. The dovetail plate can then act as a traditional tripod plate and snap directly into a tripod quick release plate on your tripod, monopod, slider or other standard piece of equipment. 

 

Tripod Adapter Plate

Use this Tripod Adapter Plate in tandem with the Zacuto QR Dovetail. The Zacuto dovetail or as an included accessory when you purchase a Zacuto QR Shoulder Pad. With the Tripod Adapter Plate, you can keep your Zacuto QR Shoulder Pad with Dovetail under your baseplate and quickly move back and forth to your tripod, monopod, slider etc.. Having several Tripod Adapter Plates on your various support equipment can make moving from handheld to tripod to dolly to slider a breeze. The Zacuto Tripod Adapter Plate has a large platform for video camera setups with baseplates and accessories. Many competitive products using the same size quick release plate were intended for photographic use, not built up camera packages. Therefore, they have smaller or no platforms and will not be as stable as this Zacuto plate. 

Once the dovetail is securely in place under your camera or baseplate it will snap right into the Tripod Adapter Plate and quickly lock into place. Release by pushing on the red button on the side while pulling the longer red lever at the rear of the plate. The underside of our Tripod Adapter Plate has three ¼ 20 screw holes, two 3/8 16 screw holes and a locator pin port to accommodate the wide variety of tripods, monopods, sliders, dollies etc.. 

The Zacuto Tripod Adapter Plate is only compatible with Zacuto’s QR-Dovetail; although, the Zacuto QR Dovetail will work with your existing Kessler and Really Right Stuff tripod adapter base. 

If your tripod does not have back and forth balance adjustment, consider adding our TAP Slide to achieve perfect balance with your Zacuto Tripod Adapter Plate.
