The SYSTEM ONE FF/VF Master Kit for Canon 5D Mark II (No Grip) from iDC Photo Video is a tripod-based gearless follow-focus and support system designed for a Canon 5D Mark II. All the tools you need for a fully functioning follow-focus rig are included: dedicated camera plate, two follow-focus wheel assemblies, four UniRails, two lens braces to support long lenses, three sliding risers for the follow-focus wheel or lens brace, plus all the hardware you need.
This dedicated system is specifically fitted for a 5D Mark II, and features perfect primary balance, a very low center-of-gravity, great adjustability, and minimal mass. No quick-release plate is required--the UniRails can be longitudinally positioned for perfect primary balance with any camera, lens and accessory configuration.
The gearless direct-drive focusing wheel is machined from industrial plastic bearing material and has a soft high-tech O-ring for positive rubber-on-rubber operation. The iDC UniRail features a double-dovetail design. For the lowest possible center-of-gravity, the UniRail's lower dovetail is Gitzo-, Bogen-, and Manfrotto-compatible for direct mounting into their quick-release clamps.
This kit also features a centralized QR Base Pad that offers both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded bosses to fit any fluid head. Four UniRails are supplied with this kit: 6", 9", 12", and 16". This simple and efficient follow-focus system is a finely-tailored, elegant HD filmmaking platform that can be easily upgraded with a wide variety of superb iDC accessories. And, it's made in the USA.
This gearless system offers economy, super-fast lens swaps, and smooth and accurate focus acquisition.
The Focusing Wheel accepts 1/2" white graphic tape for focusing marks.
The Focusing Wheel's square-drive is industry standard and accepts any Arri-style follow-focus Whip or Crank.
The direct-drive Focusing Wheel features an economical and user-replaceable O-ring. These O-rings are very tough, but if your dog chews one up it's a snap to replace.
Accepts a variety of LCD loupes including the iDC quick-release-adapted Hoodman HoodLoupe 3.0, the Zacuto Z-Finder Pro, LCDVF, and other direct-to-LCD-mount-style viewfinders.
Accepts the Zacuto Z-Finder Pro (not included) when the Z-Finder is equipped with a Zacuto Mounting Frame SKU #Z-MFS (not included). The iDC Camera plate replaces the Zacuto Gorilla Plate in this instance.
The UniRail is Gitzo and Manfrotto fluid head "friendly" and fits directly into the QR clamp of the following tripods: Manfrotto 501, 503, 504, 519, 701, MH055M8-Q5, and Gitzo 1380, 2180, and 2380.
Instant and painless placement of the iDC Focusing Wheel Assembly to work with a broad spectrum of still camera lenses.
The underside of all UniRails features a reinforced pad threaded for both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 fasteners. All UniRails will accept any fluid head's quick-release plate.
All foundation components are CNC-milled from aircraft-grade aluminum, finished with soft edges, and hard-anodized in Satin Black for sleek looks and tactile pleasure. Grip Handles are machined from high-tech Acetel plastic and finely checkered for a sure grip.
