The iDC SYSTEM ONE Follow Focus and Viewfinder Kit is designed for use with Nikon D800 Camera. It is 1-wheel, gearless follow focus and support system. 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 dedicated kit provides a custom fit via a dedicated, camera-specific camera plate for the Nikon D800 Camera.
SYSTEM ONE delivers appropriate primary balance, a very low center of gravity, good adjustability, and minimal mass. The UniRail is the foundational platform for SYSTEM ONE, and can be longitudinally positioned for suitable balancing of the Nikon D800, lens, and accessory configuration without the need for an adapter plate. The UniRail’s dovetail design is compatible for direct mounting into many popular tripod fluid heads. The SYSTEM ONE UniRail also provides a centralized quick-release base pad that offers both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded bosses to fit almost any fluid head’s quick-release plate.
The SYSTEM ZERO Viewfinder V1 features a Hoodman HoodLoupe 3.0 which has been adapted by iDC. The custom quick-release bracket makes it fast and easy to remove the loupe in order to use the camera's pentaprism viewfinder for still photography.
SYSTEM ONE can be mounted on most shoulder rigs, tripods, and monopods. This SYSTEM ONE kit offers compatibility with the SYSTEM ZERO Viewfinder V1 (not included). This simple and elegant HD filmmaking platform can be easily upgraded with a wide variety of SYSTEM ONE accessory mounting brackets (sold separately) to fit your video and audio accessories.
Note: SYSTEM ONE can be used with other cameras as long as a dedicated Camera Plate is purchased for each additional camera. If you happen to use a fluid head that is not directly mountable, using the Manfrotto 577 Rapid Connect Adapter is recommended to fully benefit from the longitudinal positioning functionality.
