      Comments about Zacuto Z-ZG-16 ZipGear:

      Have to use this if you are using a follow focus while filming. The large teeth will catch the lens and help you focus smoothly. Costly, but put it on once and never worry about it again.

        This zip gear was purchased for a Sony PMW-EX1 camera and works precisely as required. Easy to fit. What more is there to be said?

        Comments about Zacuto Z-ZG-16 ZipGear:

        I purchased (4) ZipGear(s) for my Zeiss ZE lenses and Zacuto Z-Focus follow focus. I chose them over other competitors due to their low profile and engineering simplicity. My only gripe is the cost of these gear rings! They should be half their cost for such a simple product, IMO. Lastly, don't get hung up on the marketing hype surrounding HDSLR's and using follow focus. In most situations, it really isn't necessary, unless you have a dedicated AC working in tandem.

                I use these on my Canon L lenses. Best thing about these is that I can custom fit them to each of my lenses and that I can them with a variety of follow focuses.

                Comments about Zacuto Z-ZG-16 ZipGear:

                Top quality zip gear, great for simple light setup. Works with redrock follow focus perfectly. Can fit tonika 11-16 2.8, sigma 30 1.4, canon 17-40, without having to cut down anymore of the zip gear. So this is great as I can use this with half my kit. Only down side is it is quite expensive for a piece of plastic and a tiny piece of alloy.

                    Wonderful lens gear that doesn't add size to the diameter of the lens making each turn the same as if you were turning the actual focus ring. In my opinion the best lens gear currently on the market.
                    The only way to get a better gear would be to buy a lens with one built in.
