Since the introduction of the Panasonic HVX200 and P2 technology, Zacuto has taken it upon itself to excel in the tapeless format. The Zacuto Universal Baseplate has made it easier for camera operators around the world to use the Panasonic HVX200 with cinematic accessories. With several products following the baseplate, Zacuto has a vast amount of gadgets and gizmos that are wowing people all over the globe.

Now with the introduction of the Panasonic HPX500, Zacuto keeps pressing on with new inventions. Since acquiring an HPX500 in the last week, Zacuto outfits it with its own ZLWS rod support. This allows the use of iris rods off the front of the camera to attach matte boxes, follow focus, hand grips, and other accessories. Additionally, Zacuto has included two Z-release mounts on the side of the ZLWS to allow for mounting articulating arms to hold monitors, hard drives and wireless units with quick release action. Finally, Zacuto will soon introduce a foam and case that will fit the camera, batteries, lens and other products needed for recording to the P2 format.
