The Zacuto DSLR Filmmaker Kit allows for tripod and shoulder mount use of your DSLR camera for smooth, comfortable shooting.Zacuto kits allow users to make DSLRâ€™s work much like camcorders.

The key features of the DSLR Filmmaker kit is the ability to mount a Beachtek audio adapter (DXA-5D), a special unit for the Canon 5D Mark II with audio meters and a headphone jack for monitoring audio; and control the levels of your outboard microphones easily. You can also mount an on-board monitor for both handheld and tripod use.
