Standard Follow Focus Features:
The SYSTEM ZERO Standard Follow Focus Sub-Assembly requires a camera- specific Camera Plate. This lightweight and compact Follow Focus system features iDC's innovative gearless design for fast lens changes. The direct-drive follow focus wheel is machined from industrial plastic bearing material, and has a soft, high-tech O-ring for positive rubber-on-rubber operation. There are no gear rings required! The simplicity of the rugged and ultra-lightweight SYSTEM ZERO allows the user to concentrate on the capture process without being distracted by cumbersome, heavy and generic equipment. The SYSTEM ZERO "slotted" Focus Plate offers a quick and easy way to align the Focusing Wheel Assembly with the focus ring on your lens - select the slot that lines up with your focus ring, slide in the Follow Focus Wheel Assembly, gently snug it up to the focus ring with just a bit of thumb pressure, and tighten the Thumbscrew. It couldn't be easier! If any of the slots don't allow the wheel to make contact with the focus ring, the Focus Plate slides fore and aft to provide additional focusing wheel locations. The iDC SYSTEM ZERO Follow-Focus Standard Sub-Assembly kit includes one Focusing Wheel Assembly and a four slot Focusing Plate. The dovetail slots provide positioning of the Wheel Assembly for a large variety of lenses, from wide to telephoto. If you wish to use any of the 70-200mm lenses you will need the SYSTEM ZERO XL1 or XL2 kit with it's longer seven slot focus plate. All iDC Follow Focus kits provide non-obstructed access to the battery door for fast battery changes. The follow focus wheel accepts an industry standard follow focus "whip" or "crank" and the indented area running parallel to the O-Ring accepts pre-focus marks on either 1/2 inch white chart tape or an easily removed mark from a classic No. 2 graphite pencil applied directly to the wheel. SYSTEM ZERO provides tailored fitments via a dedicated, camera-specific camera plate. SYSTEM ZERO allows an easy upgrade path and can be used with a variety of manufacturer's HD-SLRs as long as a dedicated Camera Plate is purchased for each additional camera. These high quality and innovative products are designed by iDC's award-winning Hollywood filmmaker, Bruce Dorn and made in the USA.
