Zacuto Releases Lightweight Support (LWS) System for Attaching Accessories to High-Definition Video Cameras

Chicago, IL – Zacuto is announcing the release their new Lightweight Support System (LWS) for high definition video cameras. Zacuto LWS gives you the ability like all previous LWS plates to mount rods to the front of your camera for attaching matte boxes & follow focus units. But Zacuto has taken this several steps further. This is the first universal lightweight support plate to work with all Sony, Panasonic, Canon and JVC cameras that use the wedge style tripod plate. This means that one plate can be used for all cameras. When you get a new camera you can still use the Z-LWS.

The new Zacuto Lightweight Support System (LWS) comes with Z-Release for all professional 2/3″, 1/2″ sized cameras as well as prosumer cameras such as the JVC GY-HD100/200/250 or the Canon XL-H1. The Lightweight Support System has unique features that have never been seen in lightweight support plates such as incorporating two Z-Release mounts into the plate. These mounts allow you to be able to attach any Z-Release equipped products directly to your Z-LWS plate. This frees the camera from having to mount equipment on it.

Also, with the flip of a Z-Release lever your equipment is released allowing you to go handheld in seconds. No more unscrewing monitors for a simple location move. Mount items like Zacuto wireless plates, Zamerican articulating arms or any other arms retrofitted with Z-Release, on-board monitors, hard drives and more. Virtually anything can be mounted to this style of camera allowing you to completely customize your setup, similar to the versatility seen in Zacuto’s innovative prosumer baseplate line. Z-LWS package includes, LWS plate, two 8″ front rods and side mounted double Z-Release mount. Designed and manufactured by Zacuto. Made in the USA. Zacuto lifetime warranty.
