Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
The SYSTEM ZERO Standard Gearless Follow Focus for Canon 5D MkII is an affordable and versatile follow-focus system designed to lend cinema-like focus control to your DSLR videos. The system's gearless design means that, unlike most other DSLR follow-focus units, this one doesn't require the purchase of dedicated gears to match each lens you use. An adjustable focus wheel attaches to one of four dovetail slots on the sliding focusing plate, which in turn mounts to the dedicated base plate beneath the camera.
The base plate, designed expressly for the Canon 5D MkII, can use any standard quick-release assembly for mounting onto a rig or tripod. It also accommodates iDC's adapted Hoodman loupe or a Zacuto Z-Finder, if you need to use a larger viewfinder for even more precise focus. When not in use, the focusing wheel can be slid away from the lens and locked in place, or the combined baseplate/focusing plate/wheel can be removed as one piece (using an allen wrench) for easy switching between video and stills shooting.
Completely Gearless Follow-Focus designed for accurate and smooth focus acquisition.
SYSTEM ZERO accepts multiple 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.
The SYSTEM ZERO Camera Plate accepts the Zacuto Z-Finder Pro (not included) when the Z-Finder is equipped with a Zacuto Mounting Frame
Z-MFS. (not included). The iDC Camera plate replaces the Zacuto Guerilla Plate in this instance

The slots' dovetail feature captures the Wheel Assembly for easy fitment.
