The Tornado grip connects to the Zacuto Z-Drive (not included) follow focus via a standard whip port. Due to the unique 60 degree curved shape of the Z-Drive and the comfortable horn shape of the Tornado grip, these products combine to create a unique mechanical follow focus handgrip perfect for single operator shoulder mounted work. This is particularly useful in Zacuto Recoil style setups where the camera is directly over your shoulder. The curve in the Z-Drive brings focusing forward so you can reach it comfortably and the Tornado attachment completes the setup.
Slide the Tornado grip into the Z-Drive whip port by pushing down on the round plunger and pushing the Tornado into the port. Once you release this plunger it will be securely attached. Grab the horn handle with your bottom three fingers, placing your forefinger and thumb on the scalloped focus wheel. Turn your whole hand to focus. For lenses with a large focus rotation, release your thumb and forefinger, ratchet your wrist back and grab the scalloped wheel once again for more range.
